Kampung Baru

Traditional Malay Village in Kuala Lumpur City Centre

Kampung Baru is a traditional village in Kuala Lumpur city centre, where you can enjoy a day of strolling around wooden stilt homes and coconut and banana trees, against a backdrop of the city’s modern skyscrapers. Developed by the British in the 1890s, this unique landscape is heavily populated by the Malay community, offering visitors a glimpse of the traditional lifestyle that’s more commonly found in Malaysia’s rural states.

Most of these colonial Malay houses have been around for over 100 years. A must-visit among them is the Rumah Limas, which was built in 1913. Despite undergoing renovations after the end of World War II, this historical landmark is a good example of a traditional home, complete with stained glass windows, wood-panelled walls and stone pillars.

Kampung Baru also attracts a huge crowd during the weekends with its night market, also called Pasar Malam Kampung Baru.

Thanks to its central location, Kampung Baru is easily accessible via a number of public transport options. Those travelling by LRT can alight at the Kampung Baru station, while those using the monorail can alight at the Medan Tuanku station and walk 15 minutes northeast towards Kampung Baru.
