KL Tower


Menara Kuala Lumpur stands majestically a top of Bukit Nanas at 421 meters and 94 meters above sea level, is considered a main feature of the city skylineone and perhaps most enduring images a visitor to KL will encounter.
The KL-Tower's architecture reflects the country's Islamic heritage with the construction detailing Arabic Scripts, Islamic tiles, classic Islamic floral and abstract motifs and soothing colour combinations.
Menara Kuala Lumpur ranks fourth amongst the tallest telecommunications towers in the world and was constructed over a period of four years and completed in May 1996.
Besides the panoramic view, Menara KL has something for the city-dwelling, nature enthusiast. The verdant green surrounding Menara KL is the Bukit Nanas Forest - the only oldest gazetted forest reserve in the country.
It covers an area of 10.05 hectares and is considered the 'Green Lung' of Kuala Lumpur. It is a sanctuary to a wonderful array of flora and fauna which is unique to our tropical nature.

Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman


This was the 'grande dame' of KL shopping, in the days before modern shopping complexes took the KL metropolitan city by storm.
This stretch of road is flanked by pre-war buildings whose distinctive facades are preserved and re-adapted to accommodate modern retailing businesses. Here, you can walk through the archways of shops for an immersion into a shopping and cultural experience that goes back several decades to the days before modern shopping centres.
Many established names like GS Gill, P. Lal and PH Henry chose to remain when others moved out. The shops here offer a wide range of fabrics and textiles, imported leather goods, bags and luggage, carpets, sports goods and winter clothing.
Narrow alleys between the shops offer a fantastic range of clothing material at irresistible bargain prices. Other established names offer collections of silver and crystalware. The very modern Sogo Shopping Complex and Maju Junction Mall are also located along this stretch.
Every Saturday between 5.00 pm -10.00 pm, Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman is closed to traffic and transformed into a night market where petty traders and hawkers sell an assortment of goods in the open air.
The night market, or literally translated as "Pasar Malam" in the Malay language, offers you an interesting place to walk through and perhaps pick up some casual attire, local products, as well as sample some local delicacies. This experience is a feast for the senses.

ISTANA BUDAYA (NATIONAL THEATRE)


Among the top ten most sophisticated theatres in the world, Istana Budaya (meaning 'Palace of Culture') is proud to be the first theatre in Asia equipped with cutting-edge stage equipment that is on par with the Royal Albert Hall in London.
The main building takes the form of the 'sirih junjung' (a traditional arrangement of betel leaves used in Malay weddings and welcoming ceremonies), and is divided by function, based on a traditional Malay house.
The interior of the Istana Budaya is something you won't want to miss as it is built from Langkawi marble and decorated with tropical wooden doors which feature hand-carved flower and leaf motifs. In short, this place is a work of art in and of itself.
On its annual calendar are international cultural and musical performances as well as concerts and ballet performances. These performances are dependent on the promoter's annual schedule.

ISLAMIC ARTS MUSEUM


Interest in Islamic art has grown enormously in recent years. Reflecting this awareness, in December 1998 Malaysia became home to Southeast Asias largest museum of Islamic art. The building occupies 30,000 sq.m., situated amid the leafy surroundings of Kuala Lumpurs Lake Gardens.
The Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia houses more than seven thousand artefacts, as well as an exceptional library of Islamic-art books.
The art objects on display range from the tiniest pieces of jewellery to one of the worlds largest scale models of the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca. The aim is to create a collection that is truly representative of the Islamic world.
Instead of concentrating on works from the heartlands of Persia and the Middle East, IAMM also puts the emphasis on Asia. China and Southeast Asia are especially well represented. The third component of the Malaysian melting pot is India, which is also given special status. India, China and the Malay world are in an exclusive category.
Other parts of the collection are displayed according to type of artefact rather than geographical origins in the museums 12 galleries.

COCOA BOUTIQUE


Cocoa Boutique is the place where you can savour all the chocolates that are truly and uniquely Malaysia. Created by their own chefs and the chocolates are always fresh and made from the highest quality ingredients, bringging an exciting sensation to your taste buds.
Cocoa Boutique offered chocolate connoisseurs a wide selection of the finest locally produced chocolates. The range of fine chocolates are created and made to original Belgian recipes, using 100% pure cocoa butter in accordance with authentic Belgium formulation.

Most of the cocoa ingredients are from Belgium but also use products from Ghana and Malaysia. They are constantly creating new and innovative products at their factory. Good Manufacturing Process (GMP) and stringent quality control that complies with international standards of hygiene.

Central Market


Located along Jalan Hang Kasturi, a few minutes away from Petaling Street, Central Market which was built in 1888 was originally a wet market. It has since been classified as a Heritage Site by the Malaysian Heritage Society and it is now a landmark for Malaysian culture and heritage. Central Market is in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and strategically located with public transportation links to all major destinations and hotels while the KL Sentral railway station is only 1 km away. The KL Sentral railway station provides fast and convenient connections to most parts of Kuala Lumpur as well as to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
Malaysia is well known for her multi-racial culture where people of different races live in peace and perfect harmony. Central Market has created a corner to display multi ethnicity and zoned the stalls based on the features of each race. The new zone therefore would consist of 3 lanes: namely the Lorong Melayu, Straits Chinese and Lorong India. The purpose of this new zone is to let the visitors have an insight of the cultural difference of the various races in Malaysia.
Theres also a Malacca Jonker street a street featuring double storey and single storey Baba-Nyonya styled architectural buildings, a Batik Emporium which houses well known designer labels with the best Malaysian made batik items ranging from clothes, shoes, bags to home finishing.
Central Market is a one stop shopping centre for Malaysian products such as handicrafts, art, kebaya, songket, batik and the wide variety of Malaysian cuisine. Efforts to improvise and upgrade facilities in Central Market also include having a wider variety of F & B outlets such as Secret Recipe, Old Town Kopitiam, Kings Confectionary, Famous Amos, Precious Restaurant (Traditional Baba Nyonya Cuisine) , Ginger Restaurant (Traditional Malaysian Thai Cuisine) and many more.
Not to forget, the colorful Malaysian Traditional Cultural and Arts events are now held at the Central Market Outdoor Stage. Central Market celebrates all the Traditional Festival of each race in Malaysia such as Hari Raya Festival, Chinese New Year Festival, Deepavali Festival, Punjabi Festival and lots more. Other than the traditional cultural events, Central Market supports the local contemporary arts such as Art Exhibition, Video Screening, Independent Music Concert and lots more in The Annexe Gallery.
The proposed exercise is to give Central Market, a building with a 120 years history a new identity to attract younger generations to appreciate the need for racial tolerance and the need for racial integration. As we all know, Central Market is a historic landmark of Kuala Lumpur and there can be no other better place to remind the younger generations of the Malaysian Culture that has been so entrenched that people of all races can come together to live in peace and harmony.
