From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Kuala Lumpur Railway Station is located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The building was completed in 1911 when it began service as the central point for Malaya's rail transportation system such as the Keretapi Tanah Melayu. It was refurbished in 1986 with additional new facilities and buildings, including air-conditioned waiting halls, tourism information counters, snack bars and more.

This beautiful Moorish-style railway station is located at Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, which incidentally is the heart of the city too. The National Mosque, Station Hotel and Dayabumi Complex are among the nearby landmarks.

As the central station, it was always bustling especially with the start of the KTM Komuter service. However, with the newly-built KL Sentral taking over, the KL Railway Station has become a stop solely for commuter trains. The rest go to KL Sentral, which is located less than a kilometer away.

Pasar Seni LRT station is a 400 m walk from the Komuter platform.

After 90 years of operation, the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station has now seen the end of its heyday.

Kuala Kangsar Heritage Palace

Quote:


Kuala Kangsar is a well preserved, old Royal Town in the state of
Perak. Stop at the Istana Kenangan (Istana means palace),
home to the Royal Museum of Perak. Construction of the palace
began in 1926 and it was completed five years later. Shaped like
a sword, the entire palace was built without a blueprint and not a
single nail was used. The walls are made of woven sliced bamboo
and patterned in diamond motifs called "kelarai".

Sepang International Circuit, Selangor
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Quote:
Location : Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia
Time zone : GMT +8
Major Events : Formula One, MotoGP, A1GP, SuperGT
Circuit Length : 5.543 km (3.44 mi)
Turns : 15
Lap Record : 1:34.223 (Juan Pablo Montoya, Williams-BMW, 2004)
The Sepang International Circuit (SIC) is the venue used for the Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix, A1 Grand Prix as well as the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix. It is also used as a venue for many other major motorsport events.

Widely regarded as a benchmark for other Grand Prix venues, the Sepang circuit boasts superb pit garage and media facilities, as well as impressive grandstands and patron amenities. Some complaints have been raised regarding the unevenness of the surface, as the track appears to be slowly sinking. This is possibly due to the fact that Sepang was built on the site of a former swamp.

The circuit was designed by renowned German designer Hermann Tilke, who would subsequently design the impressive new facilities in Shanghai, Bahrain and Turkey.

The main circuit, normally raced in a clockwise direction, is 5.54 kilometres long, and is noted for its sweeping corners and wide straights.[1] The layout is quite unusual, with a very long back straight separated from the pit straight by just one very tight hairpin.

Other configurations of the Sepang circuit can also be used. The north circuit is also raced in a clockwise direction. It is basically the first half of the main circuit. The course turns back towards the pit straight after turn 6 and is 2.71 kilometres long in total.

The south circuit is the other half of the racecourse. The back straight of the main circuit becomes the pit straight when the south circuit is in use, and joins onto turn 8 of the main circuit to form a hairpin turn. Also run clockwise, this circuit is 2.61 km in length.

Sepang International Circuit also features kart racing and motocross facilities.

KLIA & KL SENTRAL Designed by Kisho Kurukawa

Quote:
Express Rail Link (ERL) Between KLIA & KL Sentral

Stesen Sentral
KL City Air Terminal (Terminal Udara KL)

Who Designed the Station?

Designed by Dr Kisho Kurukawa, in association with Malaysian consultants, Stesen Sentral Kuala Lumpur is an epitome of a dream well brought to life. The architecture design of the station while being very contemporary and international, also incorporates traditional Islamic motives of a multi-pointed star, which can be seen on the dome and the floor tiles.

The building was developed by KL Sentral Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Malaysia Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB), a prestigious group of companies which has built a name for itself in "Shaping the Nation's Landscape", via property development and management. Currently managed by Semasa Sentral Sdn Bhd another subsidiary of MRCB, it clearly displays the future of transportation in Malaysia.

The Concept

The concept of KL Sentral is futurist-holistic, and its design reflects this. Cutting-edge technology blends seamlessly with a well-planned layout of spacious plazas, indoor courtyards, sidewalk cafes, shops, restaurants and numerous pedestrian walkways. Throughout, artistically landscaped greenery and buffer zones add to a sense of harmony. The result is a city-within-a-city that provides ultra-modern facilities and amenities yet also promotes emotional and sensorial well-being: a city where life flows efficiently without limitation.

AT KL Sentral, you can set up your office as well as home. As all you could possibly need is within walking distance of each other, motor traffic is kept to a minimum, creating an atmosphere free from urban noise and pollution. At the same time, the open layout ensures even human traffic is maintained within non-intrusive limits.

There is a central electrical distribution system for self-sufficient power generation, while civic functions such as waste collection and water supply are managed using the latest, and most efficient, systems.

The Kuala Lumpur Sentral masterplan features a self-contained city concept comprising corporate office towers and business suite, international hotels, luxurious condominiums, a shopping mall and an international exhibition, convention and entertainment center.

These carefully integrated developments are designed to present an environment that is unparalleled in its dynamism and emphasizes the essence of urban living. It is the first city in Malaysia to portray the new characteristic of a global city, where work, live and play co-exist in a harmonic environment.

Award-winning Kisho Kurokawa Associates & Architects, who also designed the main building of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), is responsible for this contemporary and international concept of space, light and greenery. Spacious plazas, indoor courtyards, sidewalk cafés, shops, restaurants and pedestrian walkways interspersed with landscaped green buffer zones, create a sense of a harmonious existence, blending functionality with technology and accessibility.

The prime 72-acre freehold commercial and residential environment is built around a world-class transportation hub, Stesen Sentral.

An Urban Symbiosis

As in perfectly balanced ecology, a well-planned city should allow resources that nourish its growth to flow through effortlessly. Every element that makes up the body should work together seamlessly. Constantly refining and adding value to each other, yet always maintaining a simple and mutual harmony.
