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.
