Kampung Baru

Kampung Baru is the oldest Malay residential area in Kuala Lumpur and still has authentic traditional Malay wooden houses set against a backdrop of the downtown KL sky-scrapers.
If you're not able to venture out of the city and want to see what an old Malay settlement looks like,then Kampung Baru can make an interesting visit.
Although lots of property developers are eyeing the place,for now at least you can see some nice old wooden houses and wander the streets in safety (but watch-out for the motorbikes)
Lots of restaurants and stalls with Malay food - Saturday night: Pasar Minggu (Sunday Market) 6pm - 1am, jewellery, clothes, fabric, Malay cooking, handicraft- Take Putra LRT (e.g. from KLCC) to Kampung Baru station - Monorail to Medan Tuanku station (5min walk from there) - 30min walk from Bukit Bintang or RM5 -10 by Taxi
