A. Strengths and Weaknesses of Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia  Founded only in 1857, literally meaning "muddy river confluence" Kuala Lumpur has become a modern metropolis with many distinct districts in just 150 years.

Very impressive by day and truly stunning by night the 457 m high iconic Petronas Twin Towers were the world’s tallest building from 1998 to 2004.

These two towers are connected with double decker skybridge on the 41st and 42nd floors.

 Malaysia's capital offers top level shopping with relatively low prices and a good range of products and malls.

 The sights apart from the Petronas Twin Towers are rather unimpressive.

The humid tropical climate with a lot of rain can be difficult to bear and there are hardly any pedestrian zones.
