Malaysia is the country of vast cultural diversity and a beautiful blend between traditional past and modern lifestyle. Visiting for the first time you will be taken by the sheer beauty of architecture, regional variation, a variety of food and a balance between various cultures. Inhibited by people coming through generation from all around the world, the country has grown into a melting pot of races including Malay, Bumiputera, Chinese and various other ethnicities. There are eleven states and two federal states ( Kuala Lumpur, Putra Jaya).
Bangsar is one of the most interesting neighbourhoods in Kuala Lumpur and is very popular with ex-pats. The adjoining suburbs of Mount Kiera and Damansara attracts a large ex-pat population. With such a diverse population mix most of the businesses including restaurants and fashion outlets cater to western tastes. Bangsar offers a unique lifestyle and should be on your list if you are planning to explore Kuala Lumpur City.
Kuala Lumpur is an interesting mix of modern and traditional restaurants catering to international as well as diverse ethnic population. During my various visits to Kuala Lumpur, I have explored some very interesting restaurants at all prices ranges. An interesting fact about Kuala Lumpur is that food is quite cheap as compared to other international cities. Most shopping malls have food courts where you can find local food at very affordable rates. Some of the 5 and 4-star hotels have a variety of restaurants offering international and fusion food. Here is a list of some of my favourites restaurants in Kuala Lumpur.
