Choose either an afternoon or evening show of MUD: Our Story of Kuala Lumpur and enjoy door-to-door transfer service from your hotel in Kuala Lumpur to Malaysia’s oldest theater, the Panggung Bandaraya.

The show runs for approximately one hour; afterward the cast members often come out to meet the audience for photo ops.

As you leave the air-conditioned theater, note its 16th-century Mughal Empire-inspired architecture. Then take a one-hour walking tour with an expert guide to Dataran Merdeka, the public square where the country marked its independence from British rule in 1957 and raised the Malaysian flag.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

wow MUD was so great!! Would rival any west end show for sure and such a great and touching way to learn of the history of KL! Our guide Nara was so wonderful, took us to a beautiful Hindu temple during the city tour and told us all the fascinating things about his way of life and it was truly a magical experience. He took us around the city and explained about the history and the culture as well as the buildings and architecture. So worth doing this tour, and if you get Nara then you are in for a great time, he was very lovely!!
