CNNGO Visits The Malaysian Capital Of Kuala Lumpur

The Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur is one of the most diverse cities in southeast Asia, a melting pot of different religions and ethnicities.

Touching on the city's colonial past, CNNGo stops by the original British residence for a classic set of high tea with singer Reshmonu, and meets the talented young designer, Hana Tajima, who is bringing a new sense of style to traditional Islamic fashion.

TV host, singer and actress Sarimah Ibrahim takes CNNGo on a tour to the Islamic Arts Museum, home to some of Malaysia's greatest historical artwork. The show then ventures on to sample a variety of Malaysian cuisine, and gets a cooking lesson from the chef at the award-winning Bijan Bar & Restaurant.

CNNGo also explores Kuala Lumpur's temples and mosques, and even stops in for the closest shave one can get at the country's oldest barber shop.
