Discover the old and the new on this full-day tour which is designed to give you the best possible introduction to this bustling city as well as the outskirt areas. First we will make a photo stop at Petronas Twin Towers. Later head out of the metropolis to visit the extraordinary Batu Caves, a limestone hill riddled with caves and cave temples. Climb the 272 steps to the shrine of Hindu Lord Murugan, visited by over a million pilgrims every year on the annual Thaipusam festival. At the world famous Royal Selangor Pewter factory, learn about the production methods of this pioneering pewter maker and enjoy a short guided tour of the factory where you can watch how this alloy is turned into popular souvenirs. Stop at Independence Square before the visit to KL City Gallery. This small museum is an excellent starting point for visitors to learn about the history of KL, in an engaging and informative fashion. As well as a photographic record of the city, entitled “Old Kuala Lumpur”, the ground floor has a scale model of Merdeka Square. Another scale model, The Spectacular City Model Show, this time of modern KL, is on the first floor. The museum is housed in an attractive neo- Renaissance structure, which has performed several functions since it was built in 1899, including being the main colonial printing office, and more recently, a public library. The National Mosque is a uniquely designed mosque that embodies a contemporary expression of traditional Islamic art, calligraphy and ornamentation. Its most striking feature is the multi-fold umbrella-like roof which symbolises the aspirations of an independent nation, standing prominently against the skyline is the sleek and stylish 239 feet high minaret.

DAY 04

This area has become famous ‘insta’ spot for locals and tourists-alike. Next, continue on to KL Forest Eco Park – also known as Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, passing by a local Chinese primary school and a century-old St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. Get close to the forest canopy on the treetop walkways and observation tower, standing 200 metres above ground. Later, take a shuttle city bus (GOKL) to Chinatown. Visit “Lost in Chinatown” to know more about Chinese society in Malaysia and also Chinatowns around the world. Not to be missed is the Chinatown’s delicious signature drink – air Longan kering. It is a mixture of several fruits (dried longan, monk fruit and melon) – a truly refreshing drink to beat the hot sunny day. The tour ends at the Central Market, one of the focal points of the downtown area. Inside this attractive Art Deco building are craft shops, restaurants and cultural performances and the market is a great showcase for local painters, craftspeople and musicians. Here, visitors can learn more about Malaysia’s culture by joining hands-on class such as the Batik DIY workshop.

Optional: Guests may continue with a walking tour on their own to explore the River of Life which is just nearby the Central Market.
