What makes this tour special

Meet the Twins

The tour will kick off with the pride of the nation – the PETRONAS Twin Towers – in the heart of the city. The gleaming glass-and-steel 88-storey towers, soaring at a height of 451.9 meters, is a perfect representation of Malaysia; a forward-looking nation who is proud of her heritage and is optimistic about her future.

Blast From the Past

After capturing the perfect photo(s) of the towers, we’ll delve into the past of KL in order to understand the fabric of our multicultural, multiethnic society. First, we visit Merdeka Square where the Union Jack was lowered and the Malayan flag hoisted for the first time at midnight on 31 August 1957, marking Malaysia’s independence from British rule. Here you’ll also see historically significant buildings such as the Sultan Abdul Samad Building and St. Mary’s Anglican Cathedral. A short walk away is Masjid Jamek, a mosque that sits on a site that gave the city its name – Kuala Lumpur (or “muddy confluence”) – because it’s located on the confluence of the Gombak and Klang Rivers.

Next, we’ll head to the National Monument, a bronze sculpture which commemorates the brave souls who died in Malaysia’s struggle for freedom during the Japanese Occupation during World War II and the Malayan Emergency. Then we’ll drive through the lush Lake Gardens only to be greeted with the sprawling National Mosque with its 73-metre-high minaret and a 16-pointed star concrete main roof. This is contrasted by the neo-Moorish-styled KL Railway Station that was constructed in 1910. Then, we’ll take a short drive to the National Museum where you can peruse their collection of artefacts and exhibitions that documents many aspects of Malaysian history and way of life. 

Excite Your Senses

Following a full morning of sightseeing, we’ll head to the hustle and bustle of Petaling Street, KL’s Chinatown, for some hearty lunch. Once recharged, we’ll visit the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, the oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia

In keeping with the multicultural theme, we’ll visit the magnificent 6-tiered Thean Hou Temple. It is a chinese temple built by the KL Hainanese community in dedication to the Goddess Tian Hou (The Heavenly Mother). Then we’ll drive through colourful Brickfields, a.k.a KL’s Little India due to its many Indian businesses and residents, on the way to the stunning Royal Palace. Finally, we’ll conclude the tour by visiting Batu Caves. The Caves, with its 272 steps, is dedicated to Lord Murugan and is also the focal point of the annual Hindu festival of Thaipusam. Just be sure to be nice to the monkeys there!
