Kuala Lumpur Travel Guide

Talk

Being the capital of Malaysia, Malay is universally spoken and understood by locals in Kuala Lumpur.

However, as Malaysia's largest city, KL is also home to Malaysians of many different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and this is often reflected in the number of languages that are used by locals in daily life. The lingua franca of KL's Chinese community is Cantonese, and most of the ethnic Chinese are able to speak Cantonese regardless of their native dialect. KL is also home to many Indians, most of whom are native speakers of Tamil.

English is also widely spoken in KL, and English-speaking tourists should generally not have a problem getting around.
