  • Wednesday, 12 Aug 2020

The Sultan Abdul Samad Building, with its clock tower, has probably been on many postcards of the country thanks to its timeless design.

Before it was cancelled sometime in mid-2018, the free Dataran Merdeka Walk was popular among tourists and locals looking for something to do in Kuala Lumpur.

Organised three times a week by the KL City Hall and the KL Tourism Bureau, the two-and-a-half-hour casual walking tour took visitors along the historic patch of field in the middle of the city and the 10 heritage buildings surrounding it.
