Really it's very important to visit the MTC first when you reach Kuala Lumpur.. We received all the required information to make our tour so enjoyment. Also I will not forget the restaurant staffs who welcome me a traditional dress and lovely music. They have daily from 3pm a traditional dance don't miss it.. :)

The Malaysia Tourism Centre is a short walk from the Petronas Twin Towers. I happened to see this on my way to the the Bukit Nanas. I stopped for a while to take some photos and see what brochures are available.

We visited very early in the day and managed to avoid the crowds that must flock here both before and after coach trips as the hub is directly next door. A useful place to browse around and pick up leaflets/ideas of things to do for the whole of Malaysia, not just KL. Beautiful gardens and buildings with some interesting sights.... More

Our 20 cruise passenger tour of KL includes a tourist lunch at the Malaysia Tourism Center sponsored by the Malaysian Ministry Of Culture, Arts and Tourism. After a very good buffet lunch we sampled chocolates in the Chocolate factory and took some pictures of their interesting well-manicured grounds.

Was there for a meeting. The Cocoa Gallery is still around with some handicraft stores. The local restaurant behind provide good "kuehs" for snacks also the nasi lemak bungkus is delicious. Cost of everthing here is very minimal price as it caters for staffs around here.

A nice place to visit. Not overly spectacular, but it has a nice mini Chocolate factory. You can also get maps & books of Malaysia here. The restaurant Saloma is wonderful with lovely Malay food, served in a fantastic setting.
