Heritage Walk With New Volunteer Guides.PART 1

Historical Buildings Around The Streets Of Kuala Lumpur
The Central Market
Hi there...welcome to my humble blog.This is what i found while walking through the streets of Kuala Lumpur.I was about to enter the Telecommunication Museum when i was approached by a lady to follow a free Heritage Walk Tour in the streets.On hearing that,i quickly agreed and proceed to the Central Market where it all begins.There i met two volunteer guides waiting and ready for the tour walk.Please view the short video clip and photos taken while on the tour.




The guides were very friendly and eager to start the tour walk and started telling me about the Central market`s history right after introducing themselves.Soon after,i was right in front of a welknown dried seafood shop which has been operating in the city for the past 62 years.Meaning,the shop started its business before Malaysia got its independence.Located just afew meters away from the Central Market,tourists mostly from Asia frequent the shop for herbal and dried seafood products known to heal hundreds of ailments.

  1. What a fun and interesting tour. I've been blogging lately about our summer in the Philippines, but I've never been to Malaysia. You make me want to visit. The Jamek Mosque is gorgeous.
