We also picked up a general book on Malaysia and guidebooks on Langkawi and Kuala Lumpur. The female customer service officer was very welcoming and friendly and answered... More

Great tourist information centre. Looks like tourists could potentially even buy tour packages for the national parks or short trips / day tours out of the city here. Attendants are welcoming and knowledgeable. Do also try the Saloma Restaurant if you're there - very tasty selection of local food. I also read recently that "Dining in the Sky" is now... More

We were there and out in about 2 and a half minutes. Nothing much to see there, especially when we have already been in KL for 2 days and more or less already know what to see and do. Apparently there are cultural dance shows at certain times of the day, but our timing wasn't right, so we didn't catch... More

I went to Matic (Malaysia Tourism Centre) last month and there was a free musical theater performance called "Puteri Lindungan Bulan" (translated as Princess Protected By Moon) performed for 3 days. It was really great & fascinating show. Musical theater will be performed in Matic once in a while every year and you need to check Matic's official website for... More

MATIC is based in a lovely old building, which is worth a look on its own. It has examples of traditional Malay housing in the grounds, and some food and craft outlets. The staff are friendly, polite, and knowledgeable - what more can you want when you go for info? Well done, Matic staff

The staff is equally cooperative and will help you with all stupid questions you may have. It also conduct cultural festival which are good to experience. Art gallery is not very impressive but ok.
