What makes this tour special
The Past, Present, and Future
Your picture-perfect half-day tour of Kuala Lumpur (KL) will start at the crown jewel of the city – the PETRONAS Twin Towers. Soaring at 451.9 m, the 88-storey megastructure represents Malaysia as a future-thinking nation who is proud of her heritage. We will then visit the historic Merdeka Square where the Union Jack was lowered and the Malayan flag raised, marking the independence from British rule and the birth of a new nation. Surrounding the square are historically-significant and architecturally-stunning buildings, such as the Sultan Abdul Samad Building and Masjid Jamek. After, we will drive to the awe-inspiring Royal Palace, which is the official residence of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (Supreme King) of Malaysia, where you can marvel at the enormity of the complex and its 22 domes painted in a distinctive royal yellow.
From the Royal Palace, we will then head to the National Museum to learn about the history and culture of the Malay Peninsula and the nation. An interesting feature of the museum is its Italian mosaic mural running the length of the building, depicting important historical moments of the nation. Then we will visit the National Monument. The bronze sculpture commemorates the fallen heroes who valiantly fought for Malaya’s freedom during World War II and the Malayan Emergency.
We then wind down the journey by driving through the lush Lake Gardens to see the National Mosque. Built in 1965, the geometric design of the complex reflects the harmony between modernity and Islamic aesthetics. In contrast, the adjacent KL Railway Station, built in 1910, was designed in an ostentatious neo-Moorish style, with its spires, minarets, and towers, reminiscent of the grand old style of late-19th and early-20th century buildings in Colonial India.
