Kuala Lumpur - The Modern Melting Pot

Kuala Lumpur has a great mix of the modern and history. The capital city of Malaysia boasts Mega Malls and gleaming skyscrapers, colonial architecture, and a myriad of natural attractions. The world famous 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers. A pair of glass and steel skyscrapers beautifully adorned with Islamic motifs dominates the city skyline. The city is home to some of the very best well-kept British colonial-era landmarks in the region. Landmarks such as the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, cricket pavilion and the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. A late nineteenth century building located along Jalan Raja in front of the Dataran Merdeka and the Royal Selangor Club.

The Hub of Trade and Commerce

If you are coming for work and to live in Kuala Lumpur for a short term, a long term rental wont be in your thoughts. As this cosmopolitan melting pot of a city grows, new condo and apartment buildings are in abundance within the fast paced city center. And very close to what has become the center for the global Islamic finance, in recent years. The strong presence of financial institutions from all over the world has started to reflect KL’s importance in this fast growing industry sector. Representatives of Dow Jones & Company can be found working in Kuala Lumpur’s stock exchange, the Bursa Malaysia, in order to set up Islamic Exchange Trade Funds.

A very large number of expats can be found living and working in Kuala Lumpur, testament to it growing strength in the finance sector and the multinational companies that have set up shop in the City. Mainly within both finance and petrochemical industries. The IT sector has also seen major growth in KL and many Tech start-ups and established tech corporations hold regional offices or support centers in the city.

Kuala Lumpur’s transportation consists of 3 rail options. An 11 station KL monorail (KLM) serving the city center and both the RapidKL LRT and KTM or Komuter trains serving over 100 stations together in the outskirts and suburbs, all the way to the City’s airport. The bustling KL Sentral which just so happens to be the largest train station in Southeast Asia serves as the hub, for all three of the rail systems.

The city has two airports, the new and modern Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and is approximately 75km away from the city center. The Low Cost Airline airport (LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal)) is the old KILA. The KLIA Ekspres trains connect the two airport terminals with the city center.

Where to live in KL

Depending on what industry you are coming to KL for, for how long and of course your circumstances. Kuala Lumpur has a short term apartment rental for you. Executive apartments are available in KL Sentral, which is the hub for all things city center. Very close to all attractions, shops and restaurants. If you prefer being close to the city center, but prefer the life of a burb dweller, then the recommendation just has to be Bangsar. This neighborhood offers some of the city’s very best restaurants and bars, yet is peaceful with parks and great for families. The short commute to the office can be done by the Monorail system.
