Authentic Kampung Walk

Authentic Kampung Walk

Witness authentic ways of life in one of the last Malay enclaves
in the city centre of Kuala Lumpur.


Kampung Baru was established as early as the 1880’s and offers a rare glimpse into ethnic Malay culture. The community has an old-world vibe, with stilted wooden houses built in the traditional Malay style, surrounded by coconut and banana trees. Several families have lived in the village for four generations.

During this three-hour experience, guests explore the village to discover its food, architecture, local landmarks and cultural heritage. The excursion includes local-style high tea at a Malay home and visits to a mosque, a market and a temple.

17:00 - 20:00

Explore life in Kampung Baru, a quaint village in the heart of the city. The traditional community presents a stark contrast to the modern skyscrapers that surround it, including the Petronas Twin Towers, which form a beautiful backdrop to the quiet kampung setting. Here, village residents continue to preserve the traditional ways of life and stories that have been passed down from their ancestors.

Discover local life, food, architecture and cultural sights in the kampung! Savour high tea – Kampung Baru style – in a Malay home. This is an experience not to forget! Then visit Kampung Baru Mosque for an overview of local Islamic beliefs and traditions. Continue to Chow Kit Market, one of the city’s oldest markets. Watch the hustle and bustle as roadside vendors sell their fresh meats, fruits and vegetables. Next, head to Tatt Khalsa Diwan Gurdwara Sikh Temple, the largest temple in South East Asia. The experience ends with a “Magical Kampung Baru” moment, with a delicious dinner served in a unique community located right in the middle of a large, modern city.
