Kuala Lumpur is a harmonious blend of cultures and history, brimming with a modern sophistication. Our tour today focuses on understanding how Malay, Indian and Chinese ethnicities influence the city’s food, architecture and culture.
Start our tour in the early morning to get the best of the cultural activities that occur. Our first destination is a local morning market
, which is a riot of colour, sounds and smells as locals bargain for their day’s food. Here, you will learn about the various spices, fruits, vegetables and snacks that can be found in the market. After the market visit, make a stop by a local coffee house
to sample a Chow Kit favourite - curry laksa, a tasty and spicy Malaysian coconut based curried noodle soup topped with shredded chicken, shrimps, fried tofu, and bean sprouts!
Continue by local transport to the old centre of Kuala Lumpur, which is rich in architecture and culture, and provides a sublime range of cuisines to try. Then pass through iconic buildings, dating back to the late 1800s, including Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square), the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Royal Selangor Club. The tour then winds its way to the eclectic Chinatown area
and the birthplace of a range of dishes that have put Kuala Lumpur on the global culinary map. Here you can enjoy authentic Hokkien mee at a local restaurant which has used the same recipe for more than 80 years. Afterwards, return to your hotel.
