Receive a pickup from your Kuala Lumpur hotel and head to Merdeka Square, your first stop of the day. This famous public space celebrates Malaysian independence from the British in the mid-20th century. You’ll continue on to the King’s Palace, also known as the Istana Negara, where you can take pictures of the Malaysian monarch’s intricate royal residence.
Ready to take your Kuala Lumpur visit to new heights? Head next to the world-famous Petronas Towers, where you can crane your neck up at these structures that once claimed the title as the world’s tallest buildings. Contrast your visit to these glass and steel architectural marvels by exploring the manicured grounds of Malaysia’s National Mosque, a site whose spectacular main dome is covered in brilliant blue and green tile work.
Continue your Kuala Lumpur adventure by checking out the Chinese Thean Hou Temple, learning about the influence of Chinese religions like Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism on Malaysian culture. You’ll then stop by the Lake Gardens, get a sense for the country’s history at the National Museum and admire the beautiful Kuala Lumpur Railway Station.
Cap off your trip by paying your respects to those who lost their lives in the Malaysian struggle for independence at the Tugu Negara (National Monument), designed by American architect Felix de Weldon. At the end of the tour return to your hotel aboard your minivan.
