Welcome to KL

At first you think that Kuala Lumpur is a city of antagonisms. But then you realise that the different ethnic groups have already mingled so much that they have become nearly homogeneous again :P There is, however, a strong visual impact from all the Muslim women with their scarves, as Islam is the strongest religion in Malaysia (since the 16th century). When you look at the men, you can’t be sure if they are Muslim, Christian, Hindu or Buddhists…

On the other hand, there are still a few “ethnic” quarters in KL like “Chinatown” or “Little India” or a Malaysian remains “Kampung Baru”. The Malaysian “Kampung Baru” is the last area in the city that has not been replaced by highrise buildings. You still find colourful traditional houses there.

We nearly reached the end of Kampung Baru when dusk set in, and the muezzin from the local mosque started reciting the surahs. That gave this predominantly Muslim place a very authentic atmosphere:

To stroll around such areas is a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the shopping madness…
