#MerdekaDay: A (Makan) Journey To Iconic and Historical Places This Merdeka Day 2018

1/ Step back in time to admire the glory days in the past at Old Malaya

Click here to view image

Old Malaya

If you want to be drifted back to the colonial time while enjoying lip-smacking delights, you cannot simply ignore Old Malaya. Located at Jalan Raja Chulan, the 99-year-old colonial building has been transformed from a prominent residential area to a dilapidated sanctuary and finally the home of numerous heritage-modelled restaurants that are much loved by Malaysians and tourists. Amongst towers of offices and gigantic malls, this old landmark stands out as a unique, worth-visiting aesthetic legacy to step back in time and value our past. Come to Old Malaya if you love to appreciate the glory days of Kuala Lumpur in the past through the remaining ornate walls that harken back to the old days.

Click here to view image

The journey to Old Malaya wouldn’t be complete without sitting at a restaurant here to revel in the magnificent view of the iconic KL Tower or the serene ambiance of this culinary enclave. If you have a knack for steak, there is no reason why you should not opt for one of the best steakhouse in town – PAMPAS Steakhouse at Old Malaya. If you are into Malaysian-accented culinary with a modern twist, walk in Manja and it won’t let you down. Pier 12 Seafood Tavern will bring you to the sea with its freshest seafood while Luce Osteria Comtemporanea is where you can find yourself an authentic Italian wood-fired pizza and Junior Chellapa will gratify your Indian food craving by showering you with authentic Indian dishes.

KL Tower

A few minutes further from Old Malaya and you will set your foot on the highest telecommunications tower in Southest Asia – KL Tower. As the highest and most spectacular tower of Kuala Lumpur currently, the gleaming KL Tower has a spindle-like apex that allows visitors to admire the city centre. Boasting a theatre, an amphitheatre and beautiful cascading pools, this tower is a definite must-see sightseeing attraction. A visit to KL Tower would not be fulfilled without treating yourself to modern authentic Malaysian and international cuisine while rejoicing in the most spectacular view of the city centre at Atmosphere 360 Revolving Restaurant KL Tower.

Kuala Lumpur Railway Station

Designed by one of the most prolific British colonial architects – Arthur Benison Hubback, the old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station has marked its 118 years old this year and one who came here would not stop admiring the gorgeous facade of the gazetted heritage building, the dome-capped pavilions along the roof line and the Renaissance-like verandas with arched colonnade.

Merdeka Square

It would be a miss if you don’t visit Merdeka Square where the Malayan flag was raised for the very first time and take joy in the annual Merdeka Parade here. Keep in mind that when you are admiring the lofty flagpole that holds the flag of Malaysia, you are actually seeing one of the top highest flagpoles in the world! Merdeka Square is not only a historical place itself but is also ringed by the majestic charm of heritage buildings such as the prominent Sultan Abdul Samad Building and St. Mary’s Anglican Cathedral. Take a few steps further and you can pay the renowned Chinatown a visit.
