Contrast of the Old and the New - Beyond Silver Linings Of The Muddy Estuary!
Trace with me back to the early 19th century when Kuala Lumpur (Muddy Estuary) was born from the confluence of two rivers, in search for tin. Witness the contrast of the old colonial Moorish architectures and Moghul style mosque top with cupolas, chatris, minarets and arched colonnades against the tall modern skyscrapers. Having withstood and survived the civil wars, flood and fire, the metropolitan city of Kuala Lumpur now stands in grandeur with the architectural heritage and legacies left from the colonial rule. Be amazed by the different stages of development over the 160 years.
Experience the diversified contrast of the old and new, surrounded greeneries with the commercial capital city of iconic towers. A must to visit is the renowned Batu Cave Temple, Thean Hou Temple and National Mosque. KL Gallery will reveal to you the early days of Kuala Lumpur, from a muddy estuary to a metropolitan city - The Garden City of Lights.

Steven was most knowledgeable about both the history and the future of the great city of Kuala Lumpur. His use of a chauffeur allowed him to devote all his time interacting with his guests especially when moving from one attraction to the other. The planned itinerary was well-coordinated, thorough, and required little physical effort as the tour moved within a single attraction. His guidance strength guide lies in his ability to blend traditional history and values with those more modern and futuristic.
