In Kuala Lumpur, one of the most modern cities in Asia, it is easy to overlook the blend of Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures and the corresponding traditional and colonial architectural treasures. However, with artist Chin Kon Yit and architect Chen Voon Fee as guides, this book reminds citizens of the riches that remain, helps visitors to appreciate the city's unique character and serves as a poignant memento. Watercolour paintings and sketches depict the city's grandest buildings, humblest shophouses and typical street scenes.
