Streets of Kuala Lumpur

Streets of Kuala Lumpur - Street Photography by Parvez Shaikh
My month-long trip to Malaysia has come to an end. Here's a collection of some of my favourite street photos taken in Kuala Lumpur - serving as a tribute to the people of Malaysia.

It has been a great month in Malaysia, which I spent in Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, and George Town. During these 30 days, I had a chance to observe Ramadan and Hari Raya celebrations, visiting different mosques, dining with a family as well as trying some delicious food at different cafes. For this whole month, I had experienced wonderful hospitality from numerous people I met. And as if that wasn’t enough, I even got punched in my face on my last night in Malaysia!

Now it’s my time to move on and experience whatever is waiting for me in Vietnam, my next destination. With every country I visit, I publish a collection of my favourite photos I took along the way. It’s my way of saying “thank you” to the country and its people for their love, support, and hospitality which makes my journey worthwhile.

This article is a collection of some of my favourite street photos I took in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. It focuses on people busy in their daily routine around the city. My next article showcases photos from the street of George Town, Penang.
