Meet a driver at your hotel for 4pm departure, then board a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle for the trip to the first stop of the day, Independence Square. Also called Merdeka Square, this is where the people of Malaya declared independence from the British Empire, ending years of foreign rule.
You’ll see the old Parliament house of Malaysia and the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, and stroll along a grassy field that’s a popular hang-out spot for locals. At Independence Square and throughout your tour, take advantage of your time with a private guide to ask questions and chat about life in Kuala Lumpur—there’s no better source than a local guide.
Following your time at Independence Square, get ready to shop your way through Central Market and Petaling Street, part of Kuala Lumpur’s vibrant Chinatown. You’ll see souvenirs, electronics, clothing, produce, and street food for sale, as street hawkers wind through the crowded streets.
When you’re worked up an appetite for dinner, head to a buffet restaurant that’s perfect for sampling a wide range of Malaysian foods at a single meal. After dinner, finish the night with drop-off at your hotel.
