One of the world's great melting pots, Kuala Lumpur offers a whirlwind tour of Asian cultures, customs and cuisines. On its bustling streets, Chinese joss-houses compete for space with rainbow-colored Hindu temples and dignified mosques.

Above all this rises one of the most distinctive skylines in Asia, dominated by the twin turrets of the Petronas Towers. Not for nothing do the tourist brochures describe this as 'Truly Asia'.

The diverse cultures who share this fast-expanding metropolis live together in remarkable harmony. Festivals transcend religious boundaries and an air of tolerance and mutual respect pervades. This 'Stronger Together' approach has allowed KL to achieve great things.

For travelers, KL is first and foremost a place to shop and to eat. The fusion of flavors created by KL's fusion of cultures has created one of the most dynamic dining scenes in Asia. Take your pick from elegant fine-dining restaurants with starched white tablecloths or boisterous street markets where the real food culture of KL plays out in the open air. Start the day with a south Indian dosa (rice-flour pancake), then lunch on Chinese noodles and finish the day with a rich Malay curry, infused with lemongrass.

Enormous shopping malls sprout from every corner in the central Golden Triangle area, overflowing with fashionable global brands. But this commercial outlook is underpinned by a spiritual side that makes KL feel reassuringly grounded. Locals step from teahouse to temple and mall to mosque without skipping a beat.

Sights range from colonial architecture to thrilling theme parks and one of the world's most famous motor racing circuits at Sepang. Track KL's meteoric rise from the jungle in the city's museums, or head into the jungle for real in the rainforest reserves that sprawl beyond the city limits. Whatever you choose to do, expect a warm welcome from locals, and a welcome absence of the hassles that mar travel in many Asian capitals.
