This is the second segment of Bangsar Heritage Walk project incubated by People Ideas Culture 人思文.This walk will bring you to the old business premises that have run more than 20 years in Bangsar, be it grocery shop, hardware shop, barber shop, pub, kopitian etc. It is not easy to sustain that long in Bangsar as the new venture who come in usually doesn't last more than three years in the neighborhood due to rocket high rental.

We will start the walk with the breakfast get together in a local kopitiam that last for more than 40 years. Then, we will kick off to appreciate the oldest business premises that has run at least more than 20 years. You will have a glimpse on the mundane routine of the business ecosystem here in Bangsar, and not stay at the impression that a neighborhood that filled with chic and expensive restaurants. We will by chance talk to them briefly in person if they're not too busy but they will certainly welcome you back for more conversation.

Poor weather plan

In case, just bring your raincoat and umbrella.

    Kenneth is a passionate, knowledgeable and genuine guide. He seems to have a great connection with Bangsar and its people, whose stories Kenneth shared and we enjoyed listening to. Some of the highlights of the tour include the traditional hardware and provision shops, and the base from which the tour started, the coffee shop. What could have been improved is perhaps greater opportunity for interaction throughout the tour, rather than just at the end. The weather was terribly hot, making the walk unpleasant at times, but this can't helped though be sure to bring along shades and sunblock to protect yourself! Overall, the cost of the tour is on the high side but it was time well spent, learning about the local culture and Kenneth's vast experience.

    This is a leisurely walk around the historical part of Bangsar old town. Spent about 2.5 hours to see the daily life, eat the local foods, and understand the background of old shops. Experiencing the Indian head massage is a must!
