Guests who have opted for the private tour will be picked up by your driver cum guide for the coming hours as you pass the various landmarks of the Malaysian capital. Malaysia enthusiasts who are keen to share their experiences with others may follow a scheduled pick up plan by a driver before touring Kuala Lumpur.
An essential part of Kuala Lumpur is the National Mosque, better known as the Masjid Negara (may not be possible on Fridays). The holiest place for the Islamic community, the distinctive design has made the mosque a sight not to be skipped. We follow the capital trails further towards the Tugu Negara, a memorial of historical value for those perished during the war. We head back into the city and pass the Moorish-styled Federal Court. The latter building dominates the landscape of central Kuala Lumpur with its impressive dome.
As we continue to the Thean Hou Temple (for private tours, joint tours will visit the National Museum), we pass three significant buildings. The old Railway station has withstood the test of time, and its architecture is a striking example of Mohammedan architecture. Part of the British legacy, the meticulously maintained, Tudor-style Cricket Club is an example of these colonial influences. Finally, we take a quick peek from the outside the King’s Palace. With the Thean Hou Temple complementing our trip along with the city highlights – a six-tiered temple, regarded as one of South-East Asia’s biggest Chinese temples in– your guide cum driver makes his way back to your hotel.
Joint customers will enter a collection of Malaysia’s most cherished collection of artefacts (excluding entrance fees) and items that make Malaysia Truly Asia before returning to your hotel.
