Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur - Soaring Towers

Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur - Soaring Towers

Kuala Lumpur, more commonly referred to as simply K-L, lies in the hilly west central region of Malaysia; it is a busy modern place with a cosmopolitan air. Home to the soaring Petronas Towers, the tallest buildings in the world, the country's thriving capital presents a 21st-century spirit of progress. Yet one finds traditional Chinese architecture side by side with pewter-domed Islamic mosques next to Moorish-style buildings. Host Sian Richards and her guide, Rajasekaran, visit historic Merdeka Square, which still bears the marks of British rule. Here they see the English Birmingham clock, the "Big Ben of K-L." Here, in 1957 the Union Jack was lowered for the final time; today, the Malaysian flag flutters atop the world's largest flagpole. For the day's meals, Chef Yen shows Sian how to prepare two Malaysian favorites, Langkawi softshell crabs and lemon pepper salmon. Her friend, Wei Wong, at Royal Selangor, shows her samples of their famous pewter; then she and Rajasekaran visit a temple inside the ancient Batu caves, where Hindu Malaysians connect to their southern Indian heritage. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
