ITINERARY BY DAY
In the morning, embark on a full day walking Kuala Lumpur’s heritage trail laden with exotic architecture, mesmerizing landmarks and fascinating stories from its colonial past.
Start at Independence Square, where colonial rule ended and the flag of an independent Malaysia was first hoisted in 1957. Head across the road to the majestic Sultan Abdul Samad Building, once headquarters for British colonial administrators. From there, make your way to Kuala Lumpur’s most exciting landmarks, including the Old High Court, Jamek Mosque and the Sri Mahamariaman Hindu Temple.
Afterwards, enliven the senses with a stroll through the aromatic streets of Little India and Chinatown before stopping for an authentic lunch at the Central Market, originally built as a wet market by the British. Feast on a lively selection of Malay delicacies, including laksa, chicken satay and Malaysian chicken rendang.
In the afternoon, savour a glass of refreshing teh tarik, a traditional milk tea specially poured from a height and today considered Malaysia’s national drink. Browse its colourful stalls and grab some souvenirs before finishing up in the afternoon.
