Discover Kuala Lumpur through its jungle suburbs

Far from the lights of downtown, many travellers will enjoy the folksy periphery of Malaysia’s capital.

Despite its gorgeous jungle setting, great food and warm people, Kuala Lumpur won’t win many destination awards for tourists.

That is because Malaysia’s capital is a business town that rarely accommodates holidaymakers for longer than a couple of days. After arriving, vacationers usually head straight off to the sun-kissed beaches of Langkawi Island to the north, or to the neighbouring metropolis of Singapore.

Even its Chinatown is a bit hit and miss for most, but there is life in KL — you just need to know where to find it.
