There are a number of ways to get to know a city better. However, one particular way of creating an overall impression of a place is a Hop-on-Hop-off bus tour.
Signing up for the HO-HO tour last month had awakened in me the feelings of a waiting-to-emerge tourist. It turned out as I had hoped it would. We took off to discover the grandeur of KL aboard the open-top double-decker. The whole tour was superb with a knowledgeable guide, Tajuddin. He is a fountain of knowledge, and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide! I learned a few facts that I did not know. Also the driver was impeccable providing us with a smooth bus trip.
|In my opinion , the highlight of the trip was a stop at the Istana Negara. The grandness of the whole architectural complex was just mind-blowing! The perfection in the presentation of the royal guards and horsemen was outstanding.|
The tour covered the whole city. Fortunately, the traffic was acceptable making the whole trip enjoyable.
To conclude, I would emphasize the crucial role of MCG as an asset to promoting Malaysian heritage. You have undoubtedly enriched my experience of KL by 10-fold!
