Tour Description:

Brace yourself for an exciting discovery from the comforts of your bicycle as you cycle through Kampung Baru, the first traditional Malay village located in the heart of the Kuala Lumpur city centre. This timeless village has been gazetted as as Agriculture Settlement in 1899 and has fought well to retain all its charm. Set against the stunning Kuala Lumpur skyline of modern architecture such as the famous KL Petronas Twin Towers in the background, cycle along the traditional Malay wooden stilt homes and coconut and banana trees. Though most of Kuala Lumpur has been modernized, Kampung Baru has managed to hold on to its strong sense of history from when it was founded in 1899 and holds proud the charm of the oldest residential area in the city. The traditional wooden Malay houses have been around for a very long time, some even over 100 years!

Apart from being home to generations of Malay families over the years, as you cycle along the streets of Kampung Baru, your senses will be filled with the delicious aroma of grilled fish and charred banana leaves that linger in the air from the grill. Some other delicious delicacies that you can find here are authentic Malay cuisine such as ‘kuih’ as well as ‘Nasi Kerabu’ which is rice that has a beautiful natural blue hue that comes from cooking with butterfly pea flowers! You will also be able to visit the Raja Bot Market, previously also known as Chow Kit Market. The market first opened in 1957, the year Malaysia gained its independence and the operators of the stalls and shops have been around since. Follow our experienced guide as he takes you to ‘Name Kee’, the local coffee shop operated by two sisters. As you step foot in the timeless coffee shop, don’t miss the opportunity to taste their famous ‘Cham’ drink, served cold or hot to your request, along with delicious kaya toast bread. After treating your taste buds, head over to the beautiful flower basket shop operated by the friendly ‘Anne’. Opening hours here vary to the likes of Anne.

The Raja Bot Market also has arrays of fresh vegetables, meat, fish and other goods displayed at reasonable prices. If you are feeling hungry, enjoy some tasty home-cooked Malay food prepared at unpretentious roadside cafes and stalls. This is the perfect location to sample local favourites such as nasi lemak antarabangsa (international nasi lemak) or nasi ayam goreng (fried chicken rice). No meal is complete without some good dessert! So make sure you don’t miss out on some “Tapai” (a sweet fermented rice dessert, often wrapped in banana leaves), which is an easy favourite local dessert. During the weekends, you will also get to explore the famous Kampung Baru night market which usually attracts a huge crowd. Over here, you can browse through traditional clothing, jewellery and handicrafts, and even devour some authentic Malay dishes at affordable prices!
