  • Bukit Malawati

    Kuala Lumpur Day Trip Excursion Where the monkeys are the main attraction Tucked away, not far from the Straits of Malacca, lies a quiet hillock that belies its violent past of civil warfare and gangland fights. Here you will discover the old charm of an era that spanned more than 2 centuries and the beautiful scenery overlooking the coastline on the west and the sleepy town below. Up on the hill proud and sturdy cast iron canons still point to an invisible enemy. Judging by the size of the weapons they may not have caused too much physical damage - they were probably more of a morale booster to the troops... Read more...

  • Jalan Alor

    *Hawker night food stalls & restaurants in Kuala Lumpur* One of the greatest pleasures is trying out the different foods and flavours, and in Jalan Alor there's more than plenty of it. For the locals staying in and around this internationally famous street there's actually two sides to the personality of this street.

At this time of the day the town council cleaners are still busy moping up to prepare this part of the town for another night of revelry. The day gradually... Read more...

  • Kuala Selangor Fireflies

    *Kuala Lumpur Day Trip Excursion* This adventure has been considered as one of the highlights of our guests' stay in Kuala Lumpur. There aren't many places around the world with a sizeable community of fireflies like the one we have in Kuala Selangor.

We are constantly amazed at the neverending myriad of colours and shapes from the cross breeding of orchid species. You may purchase... Read more...
