Chinatown and Merdeka Square By Night
- Evening
Meet the guide in the hotel lobby at 18:30 and walk to the nearest train station to take the train to Chinatown for an evening street food exploration. First stop, sample bak hu (dried meat floss) or bak kwa (salty and sweet meat jerky). The square bak kwa will look unfamiliar to jerky aficionados, but will find fans in anyone who likes their meat honey glazed. Move through Petaling Street and watch and learn from the guide the daily dance between the day and night street food vendors. Explore the vibrant market, ancestral shrines and hidden old shop houses of Kuala Lumpur’s Chinese-Malay residents. Pull up a chair at a popular restaurant and savour a plate of hokkien mee noodles alongside the locals.

Wander into the Central Market, a vital hub of commerce for the city’s artisan community. Browse the stalls of local designers and craftsmen while enjoying the buzz of the marketplace. Learn about the history of this market and how it has transitioned over the years from a wet market into its modern-day commercial centre.

From here, take a short walk to continue to the architectural colonial heart of old Kuala Lumpur to learn about the past and present uses of these iconic buildings ranging from the late 1800’s to the mid 1930’s. Merdeka Square will always be remembered for Malaysia’s independence from the British rule on the 31st of August 1957. Take a leisurely night stroll for an up-close look at the historical buildings, all of which have a unique combination of British and Islamic architecture. Keep the eyes wide open at the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, the colourful lights give the structure a more bedazzling look. Head towards the Masjid Jamek and take a walk along the river. Also known as Friday Mosque, this is one of the oldest buildings in Kuala Lumpur and gracefully sits on the banks of two rivers. At 21:15 at night the river of life turns into a spectacular dancing symphony fountain show. Enjoy the light show before returning back to the hotel at 22:30. (D)
