ATV Adventure Ride Park Kampung Kemensah from Kuala Lumpur

7 reviews
Feel the adrenaline rush and get out into nature with an off-road ATV ride in Kemensah, just outside the city. Zoom through the jungle to your choice of destinations: perhaps a 7-tier waterfall, perhaps the Sofea Jane Waterfall, perhaps the Klang Gates Dam, or perhaps a half-day thrill ride along rough terrain and river beds. Besides ATV tickets, your package includes door-to-door round-trip transfers from downtown Kuala Lumpur.

When we talk about museum, mostly is about history and arts. This trendy Bank Negara Museum showcase the history of finance-how Bank Negara made money, the versions of classic money and also got some art paintings by famous artist at the upper floor.

Quite informative, an enlightening view of Malaysian history from an economic angle. No entry fee (10MYR deposit required for cloak service), and a rather pleasant cafe attached for good light lunches. However, we snuck in on 8 March, the day before an indefinite closure due to COVID-19 (although works are also being undertaken at the same time).

We are not Muslims so we didn't quite know what to expect - but we were soon astounded by the history, the artefacts, the architecture and the mosaical patterns that belong to no other race/religion . The world of Islam stands by itself - it is VERY different from the European Western character we were used to - Islamic art, writings, clothing, rugs, ceremonial weapons, pottery and silverware has an ambience all of its own. There is an entrance fee. The building is air-conditioned, there is a restaurant and there are three floors in a huge complex. Nearby is the National Mosque of Malaysia.

I would say it is more like a museum of banking and currency than art gallery as there are only 30 paintings at most but all are great paintings. Well furnished, many seats for resting and can take your time to enjoy the art. Free admission,lockers provided for bags. 10mins walk from lrt/mrt station:Bandaraya.

Malaysia’s Central Bank has set up a museum/gallery for Its citizens combining history with education. I don’t know how many other central banks have done this or something similar, and so kudos. I actually came to see the art on exhibit (top floor) but it was not to my taste. The museum is located a bit off the beaten track, in a place where you might find a taxi cruising once every millennium. Not having a mobile phone, I was unable to order one, however the kind people at the front desk were kind enough to do it for me.
