A tour of Kuala-Lumpur
Malaysia’s capital has not yet failed to impress a tourist. Its architectural diversity is particularly striking. Here, temples of all religions stand next to ultra-modern skyscrapers, and the soaring television tower rises above the serene greenery of the parks. An experienced personal guide will tell you the basic facts of the city’s relatively short history (Kuala Lumpur was founded in 1857) and show its many attractions. The programme includes a tour of the Petronas Towers, twin skyscrapers frequently seen in films and photographs; the Independence Square (Excurzilla recommends visiting the National Museum of History there); the Menara tower in the Central Lake Park, which deserves a tour of its own; the old train station; Jamek Mosque and Tian Hou Temple. After exploring the cultural treasures of the Malaysian capital, there will be time for some shopping. Ask your guide to show you the best boutiques on Bukit Bintang Street, with reasonable prices and a wide selection of goods.
