Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
I've arrived in Kuala Lumpur, largest city in Malaysia and am enjoying exploring the city. This is a bustling place with, with the city having a population of 1.6; the metropolitan area is home to 7.2 people (Malaysia has a population of 27 million). I had a great day going on a tour of the city and trying to understand its diverse demography. Malaysia consists of 53% Malays, largely Muslim and 22% Chinese (Buddhists and Christian).
