The half-day, pre-conference excursion offers the perfect opportunity to become oriented with Kuala Lumpur and to visit some of the key sights in the heart of the city. The tour will set off from the Shangri-La Hotel in the late morning and take delegates by mini coach around the city, to view some of KL’s historical and culturally important landmarks, including Merdeka Square, the National Monument, the splendid railway station built in 1910 (one of the city’s original colonial structures) and the National Mosque.
In contrast with the historical landmarks, there will be an opportunity to visit the Petronas Towers and walk the bridge that adjoins the two towers. The tour includes lunch at the revolving restaurant at the Kuala Lumpur communications tower. A tour guide will be available to provide information throughout the day, and to answer questions at each location. Delegates will return to the Shangri-La in the late afternoon.
