Major Scenic Point:

(1) China Town (Petaling Street)


Petaling Street is a place that never sleeps.

Main attraction for Petaling Street is you can get a lot of good deal and cheap things including shoes, dresses, souvenirs, sunglasses , jewelers, electronics, fruits, traditional herbal medicines, watches, and CDs.

Petaling Street has changed a lot since few years ago. They have built a cover on top of the street for the retailers and stalls. Be warned though that it can get rather extremely crowded sometimes but it’s still remains convenience.

The only thing remember to bring enough water because you know, bargaining can be quite tiring!....


(2) Sze-Ya Temple


THE oldest Taoist temple in Kuala Lumpur, the Sin Sze Ya Temple lies almost hidden behind a row of old shop houses along Jalan Tun H.S.Lee.

Even so, its gates, embossed with Chinese characters and flanked by sculptures of dragons and phoenixes, never fail to attract passers-by.

Aromatic smoke from incense coils that are hung behind the main entrance beckons one to further explore the 140-year-old temple, which is more popularly known as Sze-Ya Temple.


(3) Central Market


The history of Central Market goes back to 1888 where the location it now stands was used as an open wet market. Later when the open market continued to expand, a permanent structure was built to house all vendors. By the 1930s, the permanent structure was further improvised to have the current facade which we can see today and thence on opened its doors to Kuala Lumpur's growing population as a wet market.

On the 15 April 1986, it’s started used as the promotion of the Malaysian Culture through the sales of Malaysian Arts and Handicrafts products.


(4) The Sultan Abdul Samad Building


The Sultan Abdul Samad building was constructed in 1897 and has long been a landmark for Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur. The unique Moorish-style building has a 41m clock tower, dubbed 'Big Ben'.

The design of this building was undertaken by a British architect, A.C Norman, who worked for the Public Works Department at that time. In designing this building, he took into consideration some of the features of buildings in several Islamic countries. The predominantly Moorish appearance of the building suitably reflects the cultural background of Malaysia.

The site of this beautiful building was carefully chosen. It is conveniently located at the centre of the old mining town of Kuala Lumpur. It once served as the Colonial Secretariat offices, but now houses the Supreme and High Courts.


(5) Kuala Lumpur City Gallery


The Kuala Lumpur City Gallery is an interesting tourist information centre with a collection of paintings and photos of KL’s history, plus miniature mock ups of famous city landmarks. Set in a 114-year old, colonial-style building just beside Dataran Merdeka, this free museum is great if you want to find out a little bit more about KL’s history.
