Explore some of the best sights of Malaysia's capital city on this all-day highlights tour of Kuala Lumpur. Discover how this impressive city has maintained its history and greenery to become known as the “Garden City of Lights.”
Your grand tour begins with one of the grandest buildings in the world. Drive past the Petronas Twin Towers–the second tallest buildings in the world, rising to 1,483 feet (452 meters). Contrasting the imposing modern towers, travel on to see some of the finest examples of Moorish architecture in the city. Wander around the Jamek Mosque with its tall domes and towers crafted out of striking red brick and marble. Across the way, and designed by the same architect, the elegant Sultan Abdul Samad Building proudly stands with its 135-foot (41-meter) clock tower and shiny copper domes. At the Railway Station, imagine the majestic building during its heyday with bustling travelers passing through its colorful façade and graceful lines.
On the way to your next stop, drive through Kuala Lumpur's quaint China Town and stately Royal Palace. You'll have time to browse the many artifacts and collections at the National Museum, which houses countless items important to the history and heritage of Malaysia—including manuscripts, weapons, money, and musical instruments. Tour by the Lake Garden and the National Monument—a powerful sculpture that commemorates those who have died in Malaysia's struggles for freedom. Then, stop at the Karyanika Handicraft Center for shopping and the chance to see demonstrations by the artisans.
After a break for lunch (not included in the price of the tour), you'll begin the afternoon portion of your day with a drive through Ambassadors' Row along Kuala Lumpur's historic Ampang Road. Get a feel for the Malaysian suburban and rural lifestyle as you travel through a region known as an affluent residential area mainly populated by foreign diplomats and expatriates.
Your next stop is the internationally renowned Royal Selangor Pewter Factory. Discover the artful process of fine pewter crafting, from its beginning as refined tin, antimony, and copper, to its end as pitchers, candelabras, and countless other beautiful objects. Moving on, you'll proceed to Gombak to experience the ancient process of batik design. This wax-resist dyeing technique is thought to be over 1,000 years old, and is coveted for the ornate and intricate designs it produces.
Arriving at Batu Caves, gaze up at its grand entrance gate and the 272 stairs that lead up to the caves. The massive limestone outcropping and its cavernous interiors are said to be home to Hindu deities, and consist of three main caves with a number of smaller chambers. Once inside the cool interior, wander around these impressive structures. The most well-known, the Temple or Cathedral Cave, houses several shrines. Tilt back your head to view the vaulted ceiling that soars some 330 feet (100 meters) above.
