Discover the city’s intoxicating history and vibrant modern cultures on this half day guided KL walking tour. Travel by local transport to the city’s centre, the perfect place to begin exploring the capital.

Walk along streets lined with architectural wonders. Listen as the guide explains the buildings’ origins and learn about the various ethnic groups that have influenced Kuala Lumpur’s history. Cross vibrant streets where garland makers pedal brightly-coloured marigold offerings and pass one of Kuala Lumpur’s most important Indian Mosques. Stop for a cup of traditional tea and Indian snacks, savouring the sweet flavours while discovering more about the Indian-Malay community and their beliefs.

Continue to the architectural colonial heart of old Kuala Lumpur to learn about the past and present uses of these iconic buildings ranging from the late 1800’s to the mid 1930’s. Then cross into Chinatown to explore the vibrant market, ancestral shrines and hidden old shop houses of Kuala Lumpur’s Chinese-Malay residents. This area is also the birthplace of many of Malaysia’s signature culinary dishes, thus making it the perfect place to refuel after the walk. Pull up a chair at a popular restaurant and savour a plate of hokkien mee noodles alongside the locals.
