Metroblogging Welcomes Kuala Lumpur

Petronas TowersPlease join me in welcoming our 54th Metroblogging City, Kuala Lumpur.

Founded in 1857 as a tin mining outpost, KL is the capital and largest city of Malaysia boasting a population of nearly 2 million in the city and almost 10 million in the surrounding metro area.

A couple KL points of interest: The Petronas Towers, a recognized landmark worldwide, is currently the second tallest building in the world (Top 3: Taipei 101, Petronas Towers, Sears Tower). The Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve is an inner-city tropical rainforest believed to be well over a million-years-old.

The best part in my book, Kuala Lumpur hosts the Malaysian Formula One Grand Prix.

Stop by KL Metblogs and say “Hello!”
