Kuala Lumpur, the gateway to Malaysia

MY-KUL-LEAD-ISTOCK.

Malaysia’s buzzing capital may be best known for its ultra-modern skyscrapers and super-sized shopping malls, but Kuala Lumpur is also blessed with a fantastic geographical location. You’ll discover contrasting landscapes and world-class destinations on its doorstep.

Bursting with energy - this forward-thinking city manages to balance contemporary design with ancient culture, as larger than life shopping malls and sky-skimming buildings sit beside traditional temples and nature sanctuaries. Often described as a melting pot of cultures, the colourful food-stall-lined streets highlight Kuala Lumpur’s love for gastronomy. While the glitzy sheen of the city’s nocturnal scene gives an insight into its hip persona. Just footsteps from the city centre, you’ll find Kampung Baru, an authentic Malay township that will charm you with its less polished appearance. If you enjoy this contrast, you’ll love Sekinchan, with its sprawling paddy fields, and the verdant peaks of the Cameron Highlands.

Joe’s MAC
Guitars.

Where: Amcorp Mall

Standing for ‘music, art and collectibles’, Joe Rozario’s eponymous shop is a treasure trove of old Malaysian records, movie posters, pop culture relics and memorabilia. Find it in the basement of the slightly dated, yet delightfully kitsch, Amcorp Mall.

Lower Ground Floor, Amcorp Mall, 18 Jalan Persiaran Barat, Taman Jaya, Petaling Jaya
