What you can expect
Spend half a day getting immersed in the bustling markets of Kuala Lumpur. Discover streets filled with vendors, restaurants, and shops, and get the chance to eat delicious Malaysian, Chinese, and Indian food while you admire a selection of high-quality goods sold by locals.
Meet your English-speaking guide and driver and begin a comprehensive tour of the streets of Kuala Lumpur. Enjoy freedom in choosing where you want to go and what you want to experience. Decide to head to Brickfields, a area outside central Kuala Lumpur that boasts a high concentration of Indian businesses—shop for sarees and dresses and taste local spices.
Next, travel to the Central Market, and learn about its history extending back to 1888. Study the Art Deco-style building, completed in 1937 and designated as a Heritage Site by the Malaysian Heritage Society. The arrangement of the stalls echoes the traditional markets that have existed in Kuala Lumpur since the 1800s, including the Kampong-style houses and the multi-ethnic harmony echoed throughout the city.
Make a stop in Chinatown. Peruse the many restaurants and food stalls, keeping a lookout for a wide variety of distinctive and flavourful dishes. The final destination is Masjid India, where you have the chance to shop for a variety of local goods and foods. At the end of the tour, get dropped off back at your hotel.
