At the heart of Kuala Lumpur is another area which never sleeps – Chinatown, based in Petaling Street, is also known as ‘Chee Cheong Kai’ (Starch Factory Street), a reference to its roots as a tapioca-producing district. Deeply immersed in Oriental culture, heritage and history, Chinatown is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist spots in Malaysia. Chinatown is also a well-known bargain hunter’s paradise, a place where you can find all sorts of stuff from Chinese herbs to imitation goods. At night, its main market area, Petaling Street, transforms into a lively and vibrant night market, filled with hundreds of stalls offering all kinds of goods at dirt-cheap prices.

Facing the historical Sultan Abdul Samad Building is Dataran Merdeka or Merdeka Square, an immaculately-tufted 8.2 hectare area of historical interest.

One of the oldest and largest temples in Southeast Asia. Built by KL’s Hainanese community in 1894, the six-tiered Buddhist temple is a popular tourist attraction set on a hill and offers wonderful views of the city.

Come during the Chinese festivities and the entire place will be lit up with brilliant lights and vibrant red lanterns.
It has a capacity for 15,000 people and is situated among 13 acres (53,000 m2) of gardens. Its key features are a 73-metre-high (240 ft) minaret and a 16-pointed star concrete main roof. The umbrella, synonymous with the tropics, is featured conspicuously – the main roof is reminiscent of an open umbrella, the minaret’s cap a folded one. The folded plates of the concrete main roof are a creative solution to achieving the larger spans required in the main gathering hall. Reflecting pools and fountains spread throughout the compound.
Rising almost 100 m above the ground, the Batu Caves temple complex consists of three main caves and a few smaller ones. The biggest, referred to as Cathedral Cave or Temple Cave, has a very high ceiling and features ornate Hindu shrines. To reach it, visitors must climb a steep flight of 272 steps. The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, and is dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia.
The 121 year-old Taoist temple is located along Jalan Tun HS Lee, near the Petaling Street.

On the altar in front of the statue of Guandi (also called Guan Gong or Guan Yu) is guan dao and guan jie – a famous sword and spear. Deified in the Sui Dynasty (580-618 AD), devotees believe that Guandi’s weapons have special powers and that they will be blessed by ‘touching’ or ‘lifting’ the 59kg copper guan dao three times.
Incorporating Spanish and Italian tiles, precious stones and gold in its design, the extravagantly decorated Hindu temple is an incongruous sight at the edge of Chinatown.

The temple’s large silver chariot, sporting 240 bells and a pair of horses is dedicated to Lord Murugan (Subramaniam). It’s used to transport the statues of Lord Muruga and his consorts, Valli and Teivayanni, through the city streets en-route to Batu Caves that takes place in January or February every year.
Built in 1928, the 13-acre castle used to be the official residence of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King) of Malaysia. In June 2011, it was replaced by a new, extravagant RM800 million palace near Jalan Duta, Kuala Lumpur. Its grounds are not open to the public, so the Main Palace Entrance is usually the spot where tourists take pictures. Similar to Buckingham Palace, are two guard posts on each side of the arch with members of the cavalry in full dress uniform.
