Meander around Jamek Mosque
Built in the early 1900s, Jamek Mosque is one of the oldest mosques in Malaysia and is often visited for its Moorish architectural style and for its location, as it sits at the site where the Klang and Gombak rivers meet. As such visitors can tour parts of the mosque (in an appropriate dress) and can also take in the stunning views across the waters. For many years this was the primary Muslim place of worship in the city and has a proud history of famous preachers and religious leaders who have attended the mosque.
Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park
For a slightly whimsical day out head to Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park and marvel at the hundreds of different colored butterflies in residence, over 120 species in fact. The park itself is modeled on a jungle forest experience and features walkways, footpaths, lakes, ponds, and gazebos, and there is an abundance of local flora and fauna to discover in addition to the butterflies themselves. There are educational explanations such as breeding program and life cycle information and visitors to the park can slow down and enjoy the quieter and calmer pace as they take in the local wildlife.
