Overview

Begin your half-day tour of Kuala Lumpur with pickup from your hotel. Aboard a comfortable coach, you’ll discover how, despite Malaysia’s rapid development, this capital city has retained its old-world charm, as seen in its skyline that blends old and new influences.

Pass old buildings whose Indo-Moorish architecture reflects Malaysia's colonial days. You'll notice a stark contrast between these sites and the modern edifices of contemporary skyscrapers such as the Petronas Twin Towers, two of the tallest buildings in the world! Make your first photo stop here and marvel at the grandeur of this world-renowned landmark.

Head to the Kuala Lumpur Craft Centre to browse cultural exhibits showcasing Malaysian handicrafts, from batik (dyed cloth) and rattan (a type of palm) displaying traditional motifs to baskets and pottery carved with tiny intricacies. Then, explore the Cocoa Boutique to discover Malaysia’s booming cocoa industry and shop for delectable chocolate treats including milk and dark chocolates, chili chocolates and fruit-flavored chocolates.

Make another photo stop at King's Palace (Istana Negara) to admire the vastness of this compound and the intricate metalwork on the palace gates, which display the Royal Insignia of Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the former king of Malaysia.

You’ll then visit the National Monument, a sculpture commemorating the fallen soldiers of Malaysia's fight for freedom from the British during the mid-1900s. Afterward, you’ll be driven to the National Museum, whose architecture blends traditional Malaysian and modern elements. Explore the exhibits and galleries here with your guide to learn about Kuala Lumpur’s history, culture, arts and economy, as well as its local flora and fauna, as seen at the beautiful Lake Gardens.

Stop for more photos at the National Mosque of Malaysia (Masjid Negara), symbolizing the aspirations of the newly independent Malaysia during the 1960s. Finally, visit the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, which houses the offices of the Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture of Malaysia. After learning about this interesting Malaysian site, you’ll be taken back to your Kuala Lumpur hotel.
