After eight years of planning, fundraising, designing, and building, MinNature Malaysia opened in November 2016. It had previously occupied a massive 17,000 sq ft space in Subang Jaya, but in July 2020 it relocated to the far more centrally located Sungei Wang Plaza in Bukit Bintang. It is Asia's largest permanent indoor miniature and train show, and the world's third-largest. The attention to detail given by MinNature 3D printers is very impressive.
Previously known as the Selangor Club Padang or simply the "Padang," it served as the Selangor Club's cricket green. At midnight on August 31, 1957, the Union Flag was lowered and the Malayan flag was hoisted at this exact location as Malaya proclaimed independence from British rule. Merdeka Square (Dataran Merdeka), located in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, is unquestionably Malaysia's most well-known venue. It is at the heart of Kuala Lumpur's history.
Far beyond the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, a little further down Petaling Street, lies Kwai Chai Hong, a very hidden alley that transports you back in time. Beautiful murals depicting the everyday lives of Chinese settlers back then adorn the walls of the carefully preserved storehouses here, while the charming dining rooms offer culinary treats that will take you on a gastronomical journey. This hidden gem, tucked between century-old shops and busy streets, debuted in 2019.
Previously, this was the residence of His Majesty Yang di-Pertuan Agong and His Majesty Raja Permaisuri Agong (1957-2011). When the royal family relocated to the new National Palace, the Old National Palace was transformed into a museum known as the Royal Museum and opened to the public on 1 February 2013. The construction of this two-storey building was the imaginative brainchild of a well-known architectural firm in Singapore, Swan and MacLaren.
