Federal Territory of Malaysia

Could you tell us more about Federal Territory in Malaysia

Labuan





Labuan formerly known as Victoria island is, since 1946, a territory of Malaysia being part of the state of Sabah. It comprises one main island (75kmē) and six other smaller ones off the coast of Sabah, and Brunei. The islands have a total population of 75,000 and are best known as an offshore banking center. In Malay, it is called Pulau Labuan (Labuan in Malay means anchorage).

In 1984, Labuan was made part of the Federal Territory of Malaysia, and in 1990 it was declared and still is an International Offshore Financial Centre (IOFC).


Putrajaya




Putrajaya (formerly known as Prang Besar) is a new administration centre of Malaysia that is located in the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) area. Putrajaya is the third Federal Territory of Malaysia; the other two being Kuala Lumpur and Labuan.

The city is named after the first Malaysian Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra. Putra also means prince in Malay while Jaya means excellent or success.

Putrajaya was formerly owned by the state of Selangor. The Federal Government negotiated with the state on the prospect of another Federal Territory and in the mid-1990s, the Federal Government paid a substantial amount of money to Selangor for approximately 11 320 acres (46 kmē) of land that later is to be known as Putrajaya.

As the local political border is being redrawn, Selangor now has two enclaves. They are Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.

The city has only been raised recently and it is still undergoing massive development.

In 2002, a high speed rail link called KLIA Transit was opened, linking Kuala Lumpur and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang, Selangor to Putrajaya.

Nearby is Cyberjaya, a cyber city, also located within the Multimedia Super Corridor.


Kuala Lumpur




Kuala Lumpur is the largest city in Malaysia and the capital of the federation. Within Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is almost always abbreviated to KL. The executive branch of the Malaysian Government has shifted to a new administrative capital, Putrajaya, but the residence of the King of Malaysia, the Parliament of Malaysia, and the judicial branch remain in Kuala Lumpur.

Kuala Lumpur is one of the three Federal Territories in Selangor state, and is an enclave within the state of Selangor, on the central west coast of Peninsular Malaysia.

Labuan




Labuan, a Federal Territory of Malaysia, is a 92 sq km tropical island located off the northwest coast of Borneo Island, at the mouth of the Brunei Bay. It is a picturesque island endowed with natural splendours.

It has many notable accomplishments like its duty free port status, the International Offshore Financial Centre (IOFC), a world-class fishing destination, exciting wreck dive sites, World War 11 historial importance and also the potential of becoming Asia's most desirable address.

It boasts of a modern satellite telecommunication system and well-developed infrastructure.

Hotel accommodation ranges from the basic budgets to 5-star luxury. Dining is always a pleasure. With fresh seafood, mouth-watering local dishes and international cuisine served, one is spoilt for choice. Same goes for ales and wines.

New ambitious development programmes are underway to transform this island economy into one on par with other Asian business giants in the new millennium.

Labuan is a 'must visit' for those seeking to establish a tax-haven portfolio in Asia. It is also the perfect holiday destination for those yearning something different.

History repeating itself:
I look at the North Strait Times (Kuala Lumpur?) real estate section online and it looks almost like The Los Angeles times real estate section of the mid 1950's. Only it's Klang Valley instead of the San Fernando Valley.
Might be good or bad or portend for your future?
