Selamat datang!
Welcome to historic Kuala Lumpur


Join us on our tip-supported walking tours of the city under the banner of ‘Keeping Kuala Lumpur’s Heritage Alive’, a privately sponsored initiative that will run until December 2024. Every Saturday and Sunday morning, we guide visitors and locals through the quaint streets, lanes, and back alleys of Kuala Lumpur. We bring the memory of these places to life with stories of how and why people migrated to the city and tales about past heroes and villains, forgotten pioneers, historic architecture, and much more. We look forward to you joining us on these tours and helping us to keep the heritage of Kuala Lumpur alive.

This is an ideal activity if you want to really experience the soul of Kuala Lumpur and understand what makes the city so unique and special. You’ll be hearing stories told by guides who live and work in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

The city at its most authentic
See the unvarnished face of Kuala Lumpur, feel the passion that went into the architecture of the heritage buildings, and experience the human emotions and experiences that are the city’s foundations.

Our walks are unscripted
We don’t walk you through a presentation. We invite you to have a conversation about our city. Indulge your curiosity and ask questions about anything that sparks your interest during the walk.

Connecting people
We encourage you to mix and mingle with other curious souls during the walks. You’ll be surprised by your encounters. Savour the unique diversity of language, culture, and background of the people in your group.

Listen to the city’s heartbeat
You’ll be exploring such historic sites as houses of worship and tenements, and other places of interest, and you’ll be getting to know the people who live and work in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

Support local communities
You’ll hear about the daily lives of members of the local communities. Please help us support independent small traders, artisans, and local hotel owners whom you meet along your walk.

A healthy, family-friendly activity
We created a walking tour so that we would be a tourism activity that leaves no carbon footprint. All activities during the walk are eco-friendly too.

Strolling to Keep Kuala Lumpur’s

Bharat Avalani

Kuala Lumpur, 8 August 2022

For a long time, I knew of Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur for its knockoffs of luxury goods and haggling being the norm. The epicentre being a long undercover Petaling Street full of tourist stuff for sale such as fake designer watches, fake designer bags, jewellery, shoes, belts, hats, toys, mobile phone cases and anything else the locals think a visitor to Malaysia might want to buy.
