You made it to Kuala Lumpur...but where do you start? Here's a solution for you: Join an awesome local and let them introduce you to their city!

Go to the famous Merdeka square, KL's best known landmark, where your private local host will tell you all about the Sultan Abdul Samad ​building and the Mud Theatre - two landmarks you shouldn't miss!

Kuala Lumpur is a melting pot of cultures - Malay, Chinese, Indian and Muslim people live here in harmony and you will feel the multicultural vibe as soon as you set foot in the city. During this experience, you'll have a chance to learn about all these different cultures by visiting important gathering places for each of them like the oldest Chinese Temple in the city, Sin ​Sze ​Si ​Ya ​Temple. Also on the route is the Sri ​Mahamariamman ​Temple, an impressive Hindu temple, and Masjid ​Jamek, the oldest Islamic place of worship in Kuala Lumpur.
