This makes a great Welcome to KL walk: Experience sights, sounds and taste during this journey through the heart and soul of Old Kuala Lumpur. As we stroll along our easy-to-walk route (3 hours), you will experience local daily life: start with Hainanese breakfast at a local coffee shop. En route I'll fill you in with everything from the community’s history to stories of what once was: stroll thru a time tunnel with images of the past, visit temples (Hindu & Chinese), learn about the sound of music in Chinatown and how did communities come together in Kuala Lumpur? Come up close to a wet market where vegetables, fruits, and livestocks are peddled by vendors (market visit is upon request). This walk is about the inhabitants, past and present. This is Old KL and their stories. To be shared and heard. Think of this walk as an old photo album unfolding piece by piece, bringing out a hidden fragility to this quarter. We end with a train ride to the Twin Towers with some insider stories en-route !
