Kuala Lumpur is the gateway to Malaysia. Many major airliners fly into Kuala Lumpur including Emirates, Qatar, Singapore Airlines and even Air Mauritius.

The country has an equatorial climate and 75% of its land is a tropical rainforest making it delightfully warm throughout the year. The monsoon winds do much to disperse the heat. In the hills, the weather is cooler.
Nasi Goreng, the delightfully simple dish served across the country, is the best enjoyed on the island of Penang, where diverse cooking styles give the dish some special flavours.
Kuala Lumpur is reffered locally as KL and Kota Kinabalu as KK.
The Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur at 450 metres high are taller than the Kuala Lumpur Tower at 421 metres. The Kuala Lumpur Tower seems higher because it is standing on a hill.
