What travelers say:

Kampung Baru is situated in the middle of Kuala Lumpur and about 1 km from Petronas Twin Towers.Kampong Baru (lit. Malay village) was founded in 1900 when tin mining was thriving around the Gombak and Klang rivers. In order to increase the production of tin, colonial British administrators resettled the Malay population who were living around the two rivers in a new settlement known as ‘Kampung Baru’ (new village). The new village was gazetted as a Malay agricultural settlement.

Additional Information

Introduction

A perfectly preserved tract of land, Kampung Baru is the oldest residential area in Kuala Lumpur. Unlike other most places in the area, Kampung Baru has avoided the commercialism that the rest of the city has succumbed to and it has remained the same for many years. Thought to have a worth somewhere around $1.4 billion dollars, the elders of the area have refused to change things and allow developers to take over, leaving it intact as a small village community. This area is a great place to see a different side of the city of Kuala Lumpur, as it is not uncommon to see chickens running around as a permanent fixture within the neighborhood.
