Kuala Lumpur is a vibrant metropolis, the capital of Malaysia and an important regional economic and commercial centre. In common with other cities in Southeast Asia, Kuala Lumpur’s growth has been astronomical and what was once a small mining town is now a vast megacity full of luxury shopping malls, 5-star hotels and amazing restaurants. Kuala Lumpur’s incredible development is thanks largely to its diverse and vibrant economy, covering everything from construction and real estate to the media and the arts.
Buraydah is the capital of Al-Qassim Region in northcentral Saudi Arabia in the heart of the Arabian Peninsula. Its importance as an agricultural centre for the country is still prominent, although it is beginning to expand into other areas as well, including finance and commerce.
