KL2: KL City Tour (2)

Kuala Lumpur (KL). An interesting mix of history, culture and progress.

If you like the fast-paced, hustle-bustle life of the city; and you’ve yet to experience the melting pot of cultures of Malaysia, come tour the streets of Malaysia’s most famous city.  Among the highlights of the tour are:

 

Central Market

Formerly a wet market, this is THE place to hunt for Malaysian crafts and souvenirs.

Old KL Railway Station

Built in 1910, it has a beautiful Moorish architecture, similar to several famous buildings in KL built around the same period. It served as the main railway hub for KL until 2001, when it was replaced by KL Sentral.

National Mosque

The National Mosque is located along the walking trail from the Old Railway Station toward the Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) (a distance of 1 km). A mosque with traditional Islamic art, calligraphy, ornamentation and minarets is sure to peak the interest of architecture enthusiasts.
