Your New Life in Kuala Lumpur

As Malaysia's capital city, Kuala Lumpur is the political and economic center of the country and hosts the headquarters of many multinational companies. Career opportunities are varied; finance is a key industry, with transport, tourism, education and the service industry just some of the other areas employing a large proportion of residents.

You'll find lively nights out in Bukit Bintang, the entertainment district, and excellent shopping in the city center; Tuanka Abdul Rahman. There's culture to be found in one of the city's museums, such as the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia or the Bank Negara Malaysia Museum and Art Gallery, and of course at the events and festivals throughout the year, such as the Thaipusam procession at Batu Caves; a Hindu celebration of dance and song. Cuisine in Kuala Lumpur is just as varied as its Chinese, Islamic and Malaysian architecture; curries and spicy middle Eastern dishes are prevalent, with chicken and fresh seafood carrying the fusion of flavors. Chinese cuisine presents sticky pork dishes and noodle shops are also a firm favorite.
