    It's a great place for a morning yoga or an evening run.

    Bring your young kids here for water play because there's a nice little public pool. There's also a huge playground for the young kids. If you prefer to run, there's a running path.

    Over the years, the park's size has been reduced to make way for development. I do hope the KLCC Management do not reduce the size anymore!

    Malayan Pewter, Selangor Pewter Malaya, Selangor Pewter Malaysia, Selangor Pewter, Royal Selangor Pewter - The evolution and history of what is today famously known as Royal Selangor is just some of the takeaways you will come to be familiar with after completing the guided tour at the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre. Tucked away in the suburbs of Setapak, Kuala Lumpur, this venue effecfively simultaneously achieves being a museum, a manufacturing factory, an exhibition centre and souvenir shop.

    The interior is very well kept (including bathrooms) and our guided tour experience (which I highly recommend) led by the impressive Ravi left us with a deeper awareness of Royal Selangor's rich history and a great deal of appreciation for the level of craftsmanship that goes into their pewter products; the vast majority are molded and created by hand. Swing by on weekdays to see more of the factory in action.

    With parking fees skyrocketing in shopping malls and crowd levels returning to pre-pandemic times, the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre is a fantastic alternative for both tourists and locals alike. The guided tour (or self guided if you prefer) and parking is free and the cafe inside serves up good food at reasonable prices.

    Growing up in the 90s, the Royal Selangor brand was synonymous with pricey goods and the pride of the nation. Fast forward to today and upon spending time at the souvenir shop, you can definitely find many practical items at various price points. Pop culture based pewter such as Marvel, Harry Potter, Disney, Star Wars and others are definitely worth checking out while sister companies Comyns and Selberan cater to more upscale clientele.

    As with most companies, I can't imagine how badly Royal Selangor was impacted by the pandemic and I hope they're able to find their feet again. With almost 150 years of history to their name, I hope this family owned business can still thrive and uphold their quality over time. This visitor center is a good way to showcase the best of Malaysia and exceeded my expectations. I'd easily recommend checking out this place.

    Just after the new year rush and most would have returned to work, this is a good time to come here to shop, dine and walk about. Enjoyed the choices we have as the gals are looking for their beloved bags. Spoiled for choices. Still prefer to eat at the restaurant then good court because of the crowd.

    It is indeed a beautiful green garden. Despite few areas under maintenance, it is a good place to jog, walk and relax with family. To all malaysians, let's preserve our beautiful aset, help keep clean and tidy so that our future generation can also feel this beautiful experience. For those not keen to walk, you can take the buggy at RM 10 per person. The buggy driver (mamu) is awesome and sharing lots of information about the attractive areas.

    It's a bit of a hike up the hill so if you can take a Grab up, it'll leave you energy to walk back down. It's across a highway and "river" from KL Sentral monorail station and Brickfields mall.

    If you like a good night out with bars and restaurants ;
    Take a grab to The Rabbit Hole pub which is at the top of the bar street .
    Head down the street with loads of lively decents pubs/bars to choose from with beers at uk city centre prices .
    Carry on walking and you will get to Jalan Alor eating street which is full of open air restaurants .
    A great night in a lively safe area

    After many months of lockdown and no shopping we were delighted to have gone shoe shopping at Mid-Valley. I was very pleased with the strict SOP followed at each establishment that we went into. The personnel checking at the entrance of each shop helped me believe that we can slowly live with this and follow all that is necessary, safe and to get back our lives.

    The Central Market is an eclectic mix of souvenirs, art everywhere you look and Batik all housed in a beautiful old building full of character.

    Unfortunately due to covid there are a lot of empty shop fronts, however I am positive when international tourists return this place will bounce back to it's former glory.

    Definitely worth a look when in KL!

    Beautiful scenery at night .... nothing special just the water fountain up and down with beautiful lights. I couldn’t hear any music because it’s so noisy.

    A much better way of getting around than on foot at street level. Often faster than driving or taking a cab. We've used this during the day to avoid the sun and at night to avoid the rain, we always felt safe, even with young children in tow.
