Kuala Lumpur Overview

Kuala Lumpur


PropSocial's Review





Home to gleaming skyscrapers and internationally-recognised landmarks such as the Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur (KL) is a federal territory and the capital city of Malaysia. It serves as a global transit point for visitors from all over the world, hence its fame as Malaysia’s most well-known tourist destination.

In 1857, KL began as a small and obscure settlement for tin miners, eventually transforming into the largest and fastest growing metropolis in Malaysia. The meaning behind its name, “muddy confluence”, has an interesting history behind it. Years ago, the area suffered great floods that covered everything in mud. However, today it has evolved into a beautiful place, proving itself to be beyond its namesake.

The property market in KL has been stabilising lately, following a gradual recovery from COVID-19 pandemic phase. Prices have been seeing an upward trend, along with reviving property interest for KL, partly due to upcoming developments such as Tun Razak Exchange, Bandar Malaysia, and KL Metropolis. This will uplift the market’s excitement about the positive impact on surrounding property prices in the future.

Eclectic and exhilarating, KL offers a lifestyle that cannot be missed. A must-visit would be Bukit Bintang, a famous shopping and entertainment district filled with elite international brands and the trendiest restaurants. Aside from that, you can witness a spectacular 360​​° view of the city skyline inside a revolving restaurant within the Kuala Lumpur Tower. If you’re looking for a vibrant nightlife, Changkat is guaranteed to give you an experience like no other.
