With a chequered colonial past, a legacy of British architecture shares space with immense mosques, Chinese temples and Little India as well as the famous Petronas Twin Towers in KL. This mishmash of influences has been distilled into a wonderful array of festivals, unique cuisines, cutting-edge design and traditional art to enjoy.
