  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview

    A delight for cultural and food enthusiasts, this Ramadan special tour comprises a triple treat of relishing local Malay cuisine, peeking into the country’s spiritual beliefs and, finally indulging in stories of Malaysian history and heritage. The tour begins with a pleasurable culinary experience where you will get to taste local favourites like nasi kerabu - a vegetarian rice dish, a never-ending variety of curries and popular sweet delights like bubur pisang which is a sweet banana pudding. Crackers on your palate, we guarantee!

    Kick-starting the tour on this delicious note, we will head straight into a furious frenzy of the local life as we stroll through a bustling Ramadan special night market. Prepare yourself for a sundowner dose of adrenaline as you witness the market come alive with a flurry of busy local traders and residents breaking their daylong fasts. A great way to experience the real Malay culture at close quarters, this is one of the best places to try out exquisite home-cooked meals and seasonal specialties.

    Built in 1909 on the first Malay burial ground in the city, Masjid Jamek - one of the oldest mosques in the city - is where we will be headed to next. Soak in the revering spiritual atmosphere of the mosque and enjoy the lingering sensations of being at the heart of a cultural hub as you walk through an Indian-Muslim locality. Your gastronomic journey continues as you get to sample indigenous delicacies all the way.

    After having a taste of Malay spirituality, it will be time for a brush with the country’s historical heritage. Our penultimate stop is the Independence Square or the Merdeka Square which was built as a declaration of Malaysia’s independence in 1957, where our guide will regale you in the historical tales of this Land of Indigenous Malay. Our final pit stop is the famous China Town - an enthralling end to a memorable cultural experience. Exploring hidden shopping haunts (our tour guide can help you get the perfect bargains) and relishing the enticing Chinese cuisine at local joints are the final touches that would leave you craving for more intimate encounters with this gorgeous city.

    Did we mention that our guides can help you set up an impeccable itinerary for the rest of your tour? Don’t forget to take full advantage of their local knowledge and immerse yourself in an outstanding vacation!
