Where you’ll go

Kuala Lumpur is a city best discovered on foot and there’s nowhere better to start than the city’s 120-year-old Central Market. Let your local host guide your taste buds on a tour through the Indian-influenced neighborhood of Brickfields, where the aromatic spices will have your mouth watering, stop for a baked masala vadai and savor a few different curries, lapped up with warm Indian-style bread. Hop on the sky-high transit system and head to Chinatown for a showcase of the multicultural roots of Malaysia, as you enjoy some noodles and freshly-squeezed juice. It’s apt that we leave Jalan Alor for last,  lined with hundreds of ‘mamak’ stalls selling everything from fresh fruit to barbecued meats, this entire street is dedicated to food.
