Kuala Lumpur is the capital city and most populous city in Malaysia. The city has an estimated population of 1.6 million as of 2012. Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers, which have become an iconic symbol of Malaysia. Shopping in Kuala Lumpur is really amazing. I found a lot of things I could not find in Europe. Suria KLCC is one of Malaysia's premier shopping destinations due to its location beneath the Petronas Twin Towers.
At the heart of Kuala Lumpur is an area which never sleeps-Chinatown, based in Petaling Street. Deeply immersed in Oriental culture, heritage and history, Chinatown is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist spots in Malaysia.
In one of the shops in Chinatown I had the pleasure of attend a small class on Chinese tea and tea ceremony. First one I had in Beijing more than five years ago. If you ever have chance I definitely recommend to spend a few minutes watching this ceremony because it is real science.

Little India is a small enclave to the north of Masjid Jamek. The area is a bustling enclave of colourful shops selling saris, spices, and sandalwood along with Hindu temples and Indian restaurants all to the soundtrack of Bollywood music blaring out from numerous Bollywood video shops. It's a place to wander around and take in Indian sights and smells.
