Kuala Lumpur is the most populated city in Malaysia and it is also the capital of the country. The airport is located about 55 kilometers away from the city center, in the district of Sepang. It is a relatively new airport, which was inaugurated in 1998. The facilities are very modern and it is equipped with all the necessary facilities for passengers such as shops, rest areas, duty free, cafes and restaurants. It also has a free internet service in some areas. It was designed by the Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa. One of the most interesting things about its facilities is that they are surrounded by a kind of jungle vegetation which is typical of this Asian country.
