Explore Kampung Baru, the last Malay enclave of central Kuala Lumpur, in the footsteps and through the eyes of a local who was born and bred here.

With Petronas Twin Towers as a beautiful backdrop to this quaint kampung setting, a visit to Kampung Baru is an experience to cherish. It is the city's oldest settlement, a whole new world tucked in the thriving metropolitan.

I have always wanted to showcase my village, my lovely city and country to travelers from around the world. Through my love for culture, heritage, food and nature, you will be able to learn more about Malay unique culture, local life and local cuisine. Come explore my beloved Kampung Baru, to discover the local life, food, architecture, cultural sights virtually!

Join me on Zoom for a virtual visit to my hometown Kampung Baru

Although you’ll be visiting us online, I aim to make you feel like you’re right here with me.

To begin, guests will get an introduction to Sekolah Agama Kampung Baru. This is a special religious school for the Kampung Baru folks and you will be briefed on what it is all about.

Next, we will continue discovering little known facts into its day-to-day local life while admiring the traditional architecture.

We will visit the Kampung Baru Mosque. Learn about how locals practise their beliefs and understand Islam with a different overview here. You will also learn about the local customs, foods and traditions.

Continue on to Chow Kit Market, one of KL’s oldest market. Watch roadside vendors selling meats, fruit and vegetables, a colourful sight not to be missed! We will also visit the Tatt Khalsa Diwan Gurdwara Sikh Temple located nearby. Get the chance to learn about Sikh culture and their beliefs here.

This marks the end of your “Virtual tour to Magical Kampung Baru” experience, in a village smacked in the middle of a great city, two different worlds side by side.

This experience is hosted online. Once you book, you’ll receive an email with a link and details on how to join.

    We brought 30 of our students on a virtual visit to Kampung Baru recently and the students shared that they enjoyed learning more about an area in Kuala Lumpur that they never knew about and also learning more about the social history of the area from Mr Fuad. Although it was a virtual tour, Mr Fuad prepared food that is usually served to his guests to showcase it to the students and this allowed the students to experience the warm hospitality even if they don't have access to the food. :) This experience definitely provided a value-added experience for our students to learn more about Kampung Baru virtually especially during these times when we are not able to travel due to the existing travel restrictions.

    Fuad was a delight to have as a guide to learn more about Kampung Baru. Although I have been to KL, the stories that Fuad shared and the meanings behind the different structures found in the area provided me with greater insight to the history and lives of the people who lived in this area specifically. Bummed that I am not able to taste the many food and dessert recommendations by Fuad but once travel restrictions has eased I am convinced I should go there and try them myself! Thank you for the sharing and the walkabout made me feel that I was there too enjoying the sights! :)
