Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

One of the best ways to see Kuala Lumpur's captivating sights and learn some of its rich history is on a guided walking tour. There are many photo stops and attractions so sure to bring your camera and comfortable walking shoes. Along the 90-minute ride from the dock into the city you'll travel along and pass by the industrials and commercial developments, small townships and the impressive expressway developments.

During your tour, there'll be plenty of photo opportunities including the Moorish-style architecture of the Old Railway Station and the extraordinary National Mosque. Built in 1965, the modern mosque's 73-meter minaret and 'blue umbrella' roof - situated among 13 acres of gardens, reflecting pools and fountains are distinctive and impressive.

You'll then continue on to Merdeka Square. Also known as Independence Square, this historical area is home to the Royal Selangor Club, and site of the August 31, 1957 proclamation declaring Malaysia's independence from Britain.

From Merdeka Square, you'll walk to the edge of Chinatown and view the Sri Mahamariamman Temple. Built in 1873 for the private use of a local Indian millionaire, the Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur. You'll marvel at the dramatic 75-foot high main entrance called a gopuram. Symbolizing the threshold between the spiritual and material world, the gopuram is shaped like a pyramid and decorated with 228 Hindu deities.

Nearby is the Sze Ya, Kuala Lumpur's oldest Taoist temple. This unique structure was constructed on the principles of Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese belief that harmonious surroundings can enhance the balance of yin and yang.

Between Chinatown and Merdeka Square, sits the Jamek Mosque, the oldest mosque in the city. Built in 1907 on the site of Kuala Lumpur's first Malay burial ground, the mosque boasts three onion-shaped domes and arched colonnades that are topped by a series of cupolas and minarets.

A Baba Nyonya, family-style lunch awaits you at a local air-conditioned restaurant. A cuisine features Malay spices as well as Chinese ingredients and cooking techniques of the Straits Chinese communities. After your meal, you're free to sightsee or shop at the Central Market at your own pace.
