Unfortunately we didn't get chance to visit at night to see the dancing fountains after dark, but we did enjoy a pleasant stroll along the river in the sunshine. We visited Jamek Mosque (reviewed separately) and then walked over the bridge to the famous Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka Square), where the 100 meter-high flagpole was hoisted to signify the country’s independence from British rule. We took a few photos of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building and then had a nice stroll along the river again, before wandering on our way to Sri Maha Mariamman Temple (highly recommended). We saw a little mist but it seemed as if the water levels of the river were really low when we visited? (see photos) Summary: not an attraction worthwhile to visit on it's own, but so much to see and do within a short walk that there's no reason not to add this into your plan for the day too. Located next to Jamek Mosque and 6 minute walk to Petaling street food market.

The concept might have been too optimistic to begin with - turning the open sewer running through city center to a touristic attraction. Two years ago it looked though quite nice, new walkways, gold fish pond, lights and greenery, a cafeteria and observation deck to be opened. The adjoining garden of the Abdul Samad building was cleared to be more wellcoming to sit down. Now everything has stalled like so many projects all over Malaysia without a realistic work plan, just hype.

The River of Life project is supposed to be an educational setting for teaching about the use of water in Kuala Lumpur. There are several plaques around the platform describing the processing of providing clean water to the city. Mostly people just come here for the views of the confluence of the river and of Masjid Jamek. Both of which are good. The area is lit up at night and it does look kind of pretty. This place is close to several attractions and is worth a detour for the views. It’s worth seeing this landmark of the city, especially because of its proximity to the surrounding attractions.
