The night city

As one of the fastest-growing metropolitan regions in Southeast Asia, Kuala Lumpur has undergone rapid development in recent decades. The city is in permanent construction - modern skyscrapers are being built, road junctions are multiplying. On the flip side, contemporary high-rise towers are still surrounded by mud streets and ramshackle slums; luxury restaurants and giant shopping malls are adjacent to street food stalls and old-style bazaars.
