    What to Expect
    Often depicted by the shining statues of the Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur is by far more than one of the capital’s most notable landmarks. Gaining a reputation as a melting pot of cultures, the city has gained a reputation to surprise newcomers and regular visitors for a variety of options for an enriching Malaysia stay. A modern example of a progressive Malaysia, KL continuously fine-tunes its move forward without forgetting its roots: the latter is primarily found and defined by an entwined trail of cultures, religions, and cuisines. Where looking at street level may gain you an insight in the daily lives of the capitals friendly residents, setting your sights higher up and you will find a whole new world. With the Twin Towers taking centre stage, you’ll be mesmerized by the outlines of its skyline, punctuated by domes, minarets and architectural marvels of the modern world. Take a half day out of your traveling schedule and we will show you why KL is just that interesting.

    Guests 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 experienced 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 (Visits may not be possible on Fridays). The holiest place of the country for the Islamic community, the distinctive design has made the mosque a sight not to be skipped. We follow our Kuala Lumpur trails further towards the Tugu Negara, a memorial of historical value for those perished during the war. A moment of silence after a brief history of the origins of the War Memorial is something not easily forgotten. 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, 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, cricket has found (and still does) its way in Malaysia and the meticulously maintained, Tudor-style Cricket Club is an example of colonial influences. Finally, before we reach our final stop during this half day, we take a quick peek from the outside at the King’s Palace. With the Thean Hou Temple complementing our trip along the highlights of Kuala Lumpur - a six-tiered temple, regarded as one of the biggest Chinese temples in South East Asia – your guide cum driver slowly 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 safely are dropped off at your accommodation.
