If you're not a scholar of Malay, you probably didn't know that the unfortunate meaning of Kuala Lumpur is "muddy confluence" for its establishment at the lowland river junction where the Jamek Mosque stands today. But belying the connotations of such a name, Kuala Lumpur's soaring cityscape gives it a sky high feel.
Staying in a fancy apartment in the city center near KL's flashy malls certainly has high appeal. But those in the know stay a bit further out in the cool residential suburb of Bangsar, with great cafes, shopping, and nightlife that caters well to foreign taste.
Kuala Lumpur's melting pot of Chinese, Malay, and Indian ethnicities manifests itself in the best possible way - the food. In a single day you can enjoy a delicious bowl of spicy coconut laksa soup, get messy scooping up curry in South India's "banana leaf" style, and round off your evening with a feast of steaming hot Chinese chicken rice on Jalan Alor, the city's main food street.
KL's coworking scene is small but growing, mostly made up of local startups. It's worth noting that Malaysia's national languages are both English and Malay, so like Singapore, it's easy to make local friends if you're from overseas.
