KUALA LUMPUR ARTISTIC



This tour features modern as well as artistic scenes of the city. The modern city of KL is a far cry from the early settlements of 1875. The city has always been at the forefront of architectural trends. This has provided inspiration for visitors, photographers, writers, historians and architects. Yet, for all its modern progress, KL is still a city of charm and character.


TOUR HIGHLIGHTS


  • KL Tower

    Standing at 421m, Malaysia's tallest communications tower offers picturesque views of Kuala Lumpur and its surroundings.

  • Twin Towers at Kuala Lumpur City Centre

    Designed by the world renowned master architect Caesar Pelli, these impressive twin 88-storey towers (not to be confused with the nearby KL Tower), clad in brilliant stainless steel and glass, stands out for more than just their height as they also set new standards in design.

  • Historic Jalan Ampang

    A row of old tin miners' mansions

    Representing Malaysian soldiers' struggle and sacrifice during The Emergency, designer Felix de Weldon cast the Malaysian model in bronze in Italy. The monument is modelled after the Iwo Jima memorial in Washington D.C.

  • KL Railway Station/Malayan Railway Administration Building

    Another two outstanding examples of Moorish-influenced architecture.

  • National Mosque

    Built in 1965, the first modern post-independence building has a delicate shaped dome-roof.
