KL CITY TOUR WITH MEAL
This KL City Tour includes:
King’s Palace (Photo Stop)
Surrounded by a beautiful park, green lawns and ponds, the King’s Palace, is the official residence of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong, a Malay title usually translated as “Supreme Head”. Be sure to catch a glimpse of its magnificence and ostentation from outside the main gate where the Royal Guards, suited in white Malay as well as red British inspired uniforms, are guarding the main gate on horse and on foot.
Merdeka Square (Photo Stop)
Undoubtedly KL’s prominent landmark, it is here that the Union Flag was lowered, and the Malaysian flag hoisted for the first time at midnight on 31st August 1957 and was proclaimed “independent”. Despite countless changes to its landscape, Kuala Lumpur has retained its majestic charm with Independence Square and its colonial surroundings at its heart. Even more impressive, there is an old ornamental fountain brought in from Britain in pieces and assembled in 1897.
Built in remembrance of the fallen ‘soldiers’ during the fight for freedom to independence in Malaysia, this monumental statue represents the general freedom in Malaysia. The base of the monument is made from granite and bears the Malayan Coat of Arms, of which both sides are engraved with the inscription: “Dedicated to the heroic fighters in the cause of peace and freedom; May the blessing of Allah be upon them.” Interestingly, our national anthem is typically associated with this.
PETRONAS Twin Towers (Photo Stop)
This photo stop lets you view the Petronas Twin Towers in its glory – a symbol of Malaysia’s progress and achievements, this dual wonder rises majestically against the Kuala Lumpur city skyline. Take a stroll around KLCC park as there are some fantastic vantage points to get photos of the towers. Other than that, it can be lovely to find a spot to sit and watch the diverse walks of life enjoying this place too.
In part of this trip, you will gain the opportunity to participate in chocolate tasting. Regardless of which chocolate gallery or shop you will be brought to, one thing’s for sure the variety of chocolates will melt into your heart and make it content. It’s a nice sweet treat to indulge in as you go through different kinds of mouth-watering and unique flavors in the chocolate shop.
Witness the batik-painting technique done by the local experts called ‘canting’ – in which plant and flower motifs are hand-drawn onto a piece of plain white silk or cotton using a canting pen filled with candle wax. It is here where you will see how the artisans print the batik designs onto exotic materials to create aesthetically patterned materials that are made into scarves, sarongs, pareos, blouses, dresses, etc. Then learn how the batik sarong can be worn in a variety of ways, which includes as beachwear and fashion accessory.
KL City Gallery
A gallery that houses a collection of paintings and photos of KL’s history, plus miniature mock-ups of famous city landmarks. It’s a great place to ponder on Malaysia’s history. Check out the gift store where there is always something for everyone like the local-made handicrafts like batik, pewter, hand-woven rugs. Bring home a treasured souvenir for the special people in your life, to help you share with them the beautiful memories of your visit to the City Gallery.
Royal Selangor Club
Though you won’t enter this, it’s good to know some history about the Royal Selangor Club. Royal Selangor Club, one of Asia’s oldest sporting institutions founded in 1884, started out as a tiny wooden building with an “attap” roof. It was later redesigned in the Tudor style we see now. The Main Club house, fondly known as “The Spotted Dog”, was located at the “Padang”. Expatriates and officials gathered here to relax, play billiards and watch cricket on what is now known as Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur, where major sporting events were once held.
Tour Duration: 4 – 5 hours
