This title I wrote it long time ago without any content, because I don’t have any idea to write about, as you know Kuala Lumpur is a big city, if I want to write it in one article it will be so long, people will not read about it like Wikipedia, as normal people we don’t like long info articles, people do not enjoy the reading nowadays, because they using their phones to search of information, so if I am going to write about Kuala Lumpur city, I need to divide the information to many parts to make useful.

Our first part is District or Area, because the city is divided to areas, but it also also merges with the adjacent satellite cities of Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, Shah Alam, Klang, Port Klang, Ampang, Selayang/Rawang, Kajang, Puchong, Sepang, and all in the state of Selangor, (except the new administrative city Putrajaya, also a federal territory) which enclaves Kuala Lumpur, and all with their separate local authorities. Collectively they are called Greater Kuala Lumpur, more commonly Klang Valley.

The city can be divided into the following areas, each of which offers a particular attraction or activity.

Old City Centre/Old Town (Chinatown): This is the traditional core of Kuala Lumpur where you’ll find the former colonial administrative center-the Merdeka Square, Sultan Abdul Samad Building and Selangor Club. It also includes Kuala Lumpur’s old Chinese commercial center which everyone refers to now as Chinatown.

Golden Triangle – Kuala Lumpur’s Central Business District (CBD), to the north-east of the old city center/old town. This is where you will find Bukit Bintang- Kuala Lumpur’s premier shopping district, five-star hotels, offices, nightlife, and the iconic Petronas Twin Towers.

Tuanku Abdul Rahman / Chow Kit – This extension of the old city center/old town is fast regaining its old fame after a decade of slow growth. Located 500 m north of Chinatown and 500 m west to the Petronas Twin Towers, this is the traditional colorful shopping district of Kuala Lumpur north of the city center that moves into high gear when the festivals of Hari Raya Puasa (Eid ul-Fitr) and Deepavali approach. Located just beside the Golden Triangle (northern neighbor) with many popular budget accommodations. The gigantic Putra World Trade Centre & the traditional Kampung Baru food haven are among the most important landmarks.

Brickfields – This area, located south of the city center, is Kuala Lumpur’s Little India, filled with saree shops and banana leaf rice restaurants. Kuala Lumpur’s new main railway station, KL Sentral, is located here.

Bangsar and Midvalley – Located south of the city, Bangsar is a popular upmarket dining & nightlife district while Midvalley is one of the city’s most popular shopping malls.

Damansara and Hartamas – Largely suburban, these two districts to the west of the city house some interesting pockets of restaurants and drinking areas. This district also merges into the northern part of Petaling Jaya.

Ampang – Located east of the city, Ampang is home to Kuala Lumpur’s Little Korea and most foreign embassies.

Northern suburbs – This huge area to the north of the city is home to several natural wonders attractions, such as the Batu Caves, the National Zoo and the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia.

Southern suburbs – This district may not interest travelers much, although Kuala Lumpur’s National Stadium and National Sports Complex Bukit Jalil and Putrajaya are located here.
