Malaysia is a country of diverse ethnicity, race, religion, culture and practices. Due to its many colours and cultural diversity, it has become one of the world's popular attractions. The Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur is the country's national capital and the largest city in Malaysia with a population of 1.73 million inhabitants. Kuala Lumpur is located in the state of Selangor in the central west coast of Peninsular Malaysia and it is the centre of cultural, financial and economic development. It is also home to the world's tallest twin towers, the Petronas Twin Towers, which has become a symbol and identity of the country. The primary religion practised in Malaysia is Islam, but other religions are also allowed to be practised. Malays are the dominant race followed by the Chinese and the Indians, each practising either Buddhism, Hinduism or Christianity. Recently, Kuala Lumpur was announced as the New 7 Wonders Cities for its fast development in economy and rapid growth of its infrastructures and was named as the World Book Capital 2020 by UNESCO.
Malaysia experiences a tropical rainforest climate where temperature all-year-round has a constant average of 28 to 35 degrees Celsius. It has only two seasons which are the dry and wet season, very much alike in the Philippines. During the monsoon season, rainfall can be heavy while in the hotter months, the humidity will reach high levels. The monsoon season usually occurs in late October to early February while the hot season occurs in the remaining months. The hottest temperature ever recorded in Malaysia was 40 degrees Celsius and this occurred during the heatwave phenomenon in 2016. Flood is a frequent occurrence in Kuala Lumpur, especially after heavy rainfall as the city's drainage system could not properly handle the overflowing water. In the months where Sumatra's forest is on fire, Kuala Lumpur and many other parts in Malaysia will sometimes experience haze. It is best to visit Malaysia during the hot season from April to August to avoid being caught in unexpected downpours.

Kuala Lumpur, like the rest parts of Malaysia, experiences tropical rainforest climate where there are only two distinct seasons; wet and dry. The wet season typically starts in October where heavy downpours will occur along with occasional thunderstorms that will last until February or March. Other months, Malaysia will experience the hot season where the humidity level is high, clear skies and scorching sun. However, you will find that even during the hot season, the amount of clouds in the sky is abundant due to the high humidity. So you can expect some cloudy days too.
