I went to Matic (Malaysia Tourism Centre) last month and there was a free musical theater performance called "Puteri Lindungan Bulan" (translated as Princess Protected By Moon) performed for 3 days. It was really great & fascinating show. Musical theater will be performed in Matic once in a while every year and you need to check Matic's official website for... More

Really it's very important to visit the MTC first when you reach Kuala Lumpur.. We received all the required information to make our tour so enjoyment. Also I will not forget the restaurant staffs who welcome me a traditional dress and lovely music. They have daily from 3pm a traditional dance don't miss it.. :)

Here you can find lots of information on the various tourist attractions and places of interest. The Saloma restaurant is located on the same compound. You can lots... More

We visited very early in the day and managed to avoid the crowds that must flock here both before and after coach trips as the hub is directly next door. A useful place to browse around and pick up leaflets/ideas of things to do for the whole of Malaysia, not just KL. Beautiful gardens and buildings with some interesting sights.... More

Our 20 cruise passenger tour of KL includes a tourist lunch at the Malaysia Tourism Center sponsored by the Malaysian Ministry Of Culture, Arts and Tourism. After a very good buffet lunch we sampled chocolates in the Chocolate factory and took some pictures of their interesting well-manicured grounds.

Was there for a meeting. The Cocoa Gallery is still around with some handicraft stores. The local restaurant behind provide good "kuehs" for snacks also the nasi lemak bungkus is delicious. Cost of everthing here is very minimal price as it caters for staffs around here.
