Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's capital city, began as a tin mining town in the early nineteenth century and is now one of South Asia's most lively and contemporary cities. Kuala Lumpur, or KL, has grown into a cosmopolitan city thanks to its local Malay culture, which has been impacted over time by the Chinese, British, and Indians. In November, the Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim opened the doors for visa-free travel for both Indian and Chinese citizens. Aside from its architecturally stunning landmarks, such as the Petronas Twin Towers and the Menara Kuala Lumpur, KL is also a shopping paradise, with many high-end malls. If you're planning a trip to the city, here are five lovely accommodations to book.

It is designed with a contemporary and nostalgic vibe, creating an inviting, calm atmosphere where nostalgia meets industrial style.
