Kuala Lumpur is the capital and largest city of Malaysia and has an estimated population of 1.6 million in 2006. It is a modern metropolis and is home to the shiny Petronas Towers, the second tallest building in the world. Kuala Lumpur is a fascinating place to be because of its mixture of old and new architecture. Hawker stalls and colonial-era buildings compete alongside skyscrapers and sophisticated buildings.

The city is also the cultural and economic centre of Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur also has a mix of different cultures which include Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians, as well as Kadazans, Ibans and other indigenous races from East Malaysia and Peninsula Malaysia.

Kuala Lumpur is home to the University of Malaya, the oldest university in Malaysia. Other universities located in Kuala Lumpur include UCSI University, International Medical University, Open University Malaysia, Universiti Kuala Lumpur, Wawasan Open University and the branch campus of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.
