KTM Berhad Headquarters
Kuala Lumpur railway station is a railway station located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Completed in 1910 to replace an older station on the same site, the station was Kuala Lumpur’s railway hub in the city for the Federated Malay States Railways and its successor Keretapi Tanah Melayu, before Kuala Lumpur Sentral assumed much of its role in 2001. The station is notable for its architecture, adopting a mixture of Eastern and Western designs. The station is located along a road named Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, previously known as Victory Avenue, which in turn was part of Damansara Road. The station is located closely to the similarly designed Railway Administration Building, as well as the National Mosque and Dayabumi Complex. The Pasar Seni LRT station is located 400 metres away, across the Klang River.
This is the place to go to if you are looking for anything that can be bought in a street market. The prices are negotiable at the very least, the street vendors expect you to haggle over them so you can be sure that the low prices can be brought down even further. Souvenirs, clothes, watches, jewellery, CDs, DVDs, food & drinks and so much more, the list is endless. If you want it, they have it. Obviously, you can’t expect to find genuine brands here, but if you do not mind buying imitations, you should definitely come and shop as much as you want. This is surely one of Kuala Lumpur’s most atmospheric neighbourhoods. The ambience is irresistible, and you will quickly find yourself surrounded by Malaysian culture and feeling like a local. The market is one of the most popular places to go to both during the day and during the night. The market does not die out after sunset, and most of the shops do not close until midnight. Some of them are even open non-stop.
The most popular market in all of Kuala Lumpur and the best place to buy colorful souvenirs and do a bit of people-watching. Founded in 1888, it originally used to be a wet market. Be sure to head into one of many eateries and taste some Malaysian dishes. The market is easily accessible from the Pasar Seni LRT station.
Sultan Abdul Samad Building
Built in the 19th century, this imposing building serves as a reminder of the colonial times. The Moorish-influenced complex used to house the British administration and it is currently home to some Ministry offices. The building has witnessed many historically important events, for example, the signing of the declaration of the independence.
Situated in the very heart of the city, this square is surrounded by greenery and several historical buildings. The name of the square could be translated as “Independence square”. It has witnessed many historically important events including the proclamation of Malaysian independence. The middle of the park is adorned with a flagpole with the Malaysian flag.

This area is popular among tourists and locals, especially among the youths. A part of Bintang Walk is designated as an “Arab Street”.
Kuala Lumpur Tower
Finished in 1995, this 421-meter high tower makes for a fabulous viewing spot of the city beneath it. But the view is not the only thing worth coming for. Many cultural events are hosted here and it’s probable that some traditional dances will welcome you once you enter. There is also a revolving restaurant inside.
These twin towers used to be the tallest buildings in the world until Taipei 101 was finished in 2004. Developed by an Argentine-American architect César Pelli, they are a real gem and a famous landmark of Kuala Lumpur. The double-decked Skybridge connects the two towers on the 41st floor and it offers its visitors amazing views of the whole city and unique photo opportunities. Your ticket also applies for the Observation Deck on the 86th floor. The number of tickets for a particular time slot is limited, so be sure to book in advance. The skyscraper features one of the biggest shopping malls in the country selling luxurious brands. In addition, it also contains an art gallery, a theater and an underwater aquarium.
