A vibrant melting pot in the heart of Southeast Asia

Kuala Lumpur is characterized by an equatorial climate, which is tepid and sunny throughout the year. However, the nights are pleasant as the temperature drops a few degrees. The city receives plentiful rainfall, especially from April to September. As Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur has gained the reputation as “A true gem of Southeast Asia”. It is an amazing and gorgeous hub of culture and class. Within this cosmopolitan metropolis with a significant religious influence, Kuala Lumpur also provides plenty of high-end shopping experiences and unimaginable exciting things to do, and places to explore.

Why I love living in KL

Food, food, food. No matter what you crave, you always can find it here. Furthermore, I love the diversity in cultures and how open-hearted Malaysians are to teaching/answering my questions.

I love living in KL because it offers almost equal opportunities to everyone, both locals and foreigners. From taxes to accommodation costs. To add, there’s something to do every weekend, from food hunting to go-karting and then night market shopping. What's there to not love?

KL is a city of wonderful contrasts. The people, the food, the new coffee shops opening up all the time, the architecture, the ability to go to the beach for the weekend, the galleries, the ever-changing landscape, I could go on! Almost everyone in KL speaks English/Manglish (Bahasa Malaysia + English) as such communication with the locals is a breeze. KL also has one of the best public transportation systems with LRT, MRT, Monorails, Komuters, and free city buses.

You will never get bored living in Kuala Lumpur as there is always something new for you to explore. I love KL because it balances my life perfectly, whereby there are lots of parks for you to go for a jog, being a sports enthusiast myself. What a perfect way to complement a good workout by filling up your hunger with all the choices of different cuisine for you to indulge on anytime.

I love KL as the city that never sleeps and has a lot of various foods from around the world. There are so many malls which give us more options of places to go and activities to do with family and team. There are peaceful areas in KL as well where it is very good for people who love nature and peaceful places to spend time after a busy week.
