Highlights of a Free Tour in Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur city is built on the foundations of Chinese tin mines, and less than 200 years separate today’s imposing skyline from the thick jungle it was cut from. Come and explore this surprising history and see top-rated landmarks with Kuala Lumpur Free Walking Tours. You’ll immediately see that the twin Petronas Towers dominate the city’s skyline. Views from the 86th floor are unforgettable, but book early. Though slightly smaller, most visitors prefer the view from Menara Kuala Lumpur, a 421m high telecommunications tower. At the top, there is a revolving restaurant and weather-dependent open deck, which also has a terrifying glass sky box (those with vertigo need not apply). For art lovers, stroll down Chinatown Petaling Street to spot colorful art on walls and buildings, or visit the amazing Islamic Arts Museum. Finally, do not miss the opportunity to hang around Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square), just in front of the beautiful Sultan Abdul Samad Building.
Things to Do in Kuala Lumpur
After joining some Free Tours in Kuala Lumpur, you might feel like chilling out in nature. Forest Eco Park is a nature reserve at the heart of the city with a canopy walkway that cuts through protected jungle. If your pleasures lie a little closer to ground level, spend some time visiting the lush tropical park of Perdana Botanical Gardens and see amazing birds roaming freely in Taman Burung Kuala Lumpur. To sample true traditional Malaysian cuisine, try the enormous Central Market or take a trip out to the jungle village of Sungai Penchala, where you can eat at Sambal Hijau and even learn to cook at LaZat, where a market tour is superseded by a cooking class in a traditional home. After sightseeing in the city, you can take a full-day trip to Malacca or Taman Negara National Park. And to discover Malaysian multiculturality, take a half-day tour with a local guide to Batu Caves: a limestone hill with numerous caves and cave temples which forms the most popular Hindu temple outside India.
