    Kuala Lumpur, or "KL" as it is commonly known, is the capital and the largest city of Malaysia and is found midway along the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The city's past is still very much present in the British colonial style buildings still within the city. The new KL is seen in the modern office towers and the ever present construction that continues to expand and update. The country has also developed an extensive and modern transportation network of which K.L. sits at the centre. To the west is the Klang Valley, where tin mines are linked to the history and development of modern Malaysia.

    A lot of Malaysia's Civil War was acted out in this area. Heading east from KL, are hills and forests which are the start of the flourishing Malaysian heartland and the Batu Caves.
