What people are saying:

Malaysia's national influence lies in the new Mathai tour in China, the three countries combined tourism, can be said to affect the Chinese generation, unceremoniously said that half of the Chinese outbound tours began from the new Mathai. The twin peaks are the pride of Malaysia and the landmark of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, which has a great impact. It's a typical Southeast Asian country, a small country. But our knowledge of the country is superficial, especially in the current world-concerned Malaysian plane incident, no one knows about Malaysia.

Additional Information


Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) is one of Kuala Lumpur's historically and politcally significant landmarks. This is where the Malaysian flag was first raised to symbolize independence from British Rule. Currently, a very tall flagpole stands at the southern end of the square. Portraits of the present prime minister and past prime ministers of Malaysia sit beneath the flagpole. The buildings encircling Merdeka Square are rich and diverse in style and architecture. They include everything from British Tudor-style buildings to Islamic architecture, guildhouses, and distant skyscrapers. Each of these buildings tells part of the story of Malaysia's colonial history.
