Meet your guide in the lobby of the PARKROYAL hotel in Kuala Lumpur in the evening. Set off with a small group of 8 for a personalized food tour of the city’s world-renowned market district. You'll stroll deep into the heart of Chinatown, where a maze of stalls offer street food in addition to rare souvenirs, exquisite fabrics, and other goods.
Travel on foot to Petaling Street for a taste of culinary favorites such as ma chi, a traditional dish of sticky glutinous rice with peanuts. Try a crispy sweet potato ball, especially popular with kids, among other local specialties introduced by your guide.
Aside from food, you'll visit the Taoist temple of Guan Di as well as Sri Maha Mariamman, the oldest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur. Learn about the customs and beliefs of Chinese and Indian immigrants who make up much of Malaysia's vibrant multi-ethnic culture.
Wrap up your 3.5-hour tour at a local eatery established after World War II (prior to independence), a cultural institution in its own right where beef ball noodles are served.
