Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The Petronas Twin-Towers remains the tallest twin towers in the world. But Kuala Lumpur is not solely defined by these internationally renowned twin-towers. Locally, Malaysia is respected for its multi-racial, multi-cultural unity. With a substantial population of Malaysian Chinese people, Kuala Lumpur tends to become quite spacious during Chinese New Year. This is because most Malaysian Chinese people return to their hometowns during this period, most of Kuala Lumpur becomes explorable and can be experienced with great distinctiveness from any other time of the year.
