KL puts a lot of people off - you know, 'Oh, it's just another big Asian city'. But if you look underneath the surface layer of megamalls and mega-markets, you just might be surprised at what you find.
Insider Tip:Eat where the locals eat. A busy hole-in-the-wall is probably less likely to give you stomach upset than a tourist trap.
Second tip: There's a few free tours run by the council: one is at Independence Square, another at Kampong Bharu (Old Malay settlement) and the last at Brickfields (Little India). They are led by locals and are well-worth checking out.
