Admire the modern architecture of the National Mosque and the unique Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, which features a notable combination of Eastern and Western design.

Before a lunch break at a Malaysian restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, stop at the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre to learn about pewter-smithing.
