    This is the place from where the country is ruled...the Kings palace...or Istana Negara as its called. You can only go till the main gate..not allowed inside due to security reasons. There are 4 guards on the outside...2 on horses and 2 standing absolutely still...lot of people flock around them to take snaps..overall a visit which takes not more than 20 minutes..

    Recommend visiting this little oasis of history set amongst the towering high rise of KL. We joined the 3pm tour so we could go inside. Very much enjoyed the presentation by our guide on the design of the house and the family who lived there.

    Dropped off by our driver as having a day tour around Kuala Lumpur, a large green space is surrounded by old grand historical building including this one, didn’t go in but the area was a very busy tourist spot with coaches and taxis aplenty, nice colonial Tudor style building and a great spot to take photos.

    Chin Woo Stadium is an old sports stadium located in Jalan Hang Jebat and close to other historical stadiums such as Merdeka Stadium and National Stadium (Stadium Negara). It is a common venue place for many events and activities associated with the Chinese community. Its main attraction is a 50m outdoor swimming pool which is famous among KLites who looking for a nice place to swim. Some facilities such as the shower and changing room as well as the washroom could be improved. Please bear in mind that there is no door at the shower place, so other people can see you changing and taking shower openly.

    City Theatre-Panggung Bandaraya is the old City Hall built in the 1900s and converted to a theatre. It continues the Moghul theme in its architectural style and, as many of the fine colonial buildings here, was designed by the English architect A.B.Hubback.

    It is a historic club with a rich heritage. This building is a history because here UMNO establishments and various Malay-related congresses have been held. The Sultan of Selangor at that time granted the name Sultan Sulaiman as the name of the club.

    Bangunan Sulaiman is located on Jalan Damansara at the junction with Jalan Sultan Sulaiman with railway tracks running behind the building. This is a set of three administrative buildings originally belonging to FMS Railways. Built by the British at the end of the 19th century, it was gazetted as a heritage site in 1983. It is currently the home of the Kuala Lumpur Regional Arbitration Centre.
