Our City Tour of Kuala Lumpur

Yesterday, we arrived in Kuala Lumpur. It was an hour flight from Singapore. Today (our first full day), we went on a tour of the city.

The guide was also the driver. The first stop on our tour was the Muzium Negara. It was about the history of Malaysia.

This boat sunk in the ocean with lots of Malaysian treasures that have never been found again.

This is an old rickshaw.

Our driver said that Malaysia is made up of 10% Indians, 30% Chinese and mostly Malay people.

Malaysia was first owned by the Dutch. Then it was owned by the British. Then it became independent.

Our second stop was the King’s Palace! We couldn’t go inside but we saw some guards.

This king used to be the youngest king. Then other kings took their turns. Now he is the king again and is the oldest king.

When the yellow flag is up, that means the king is still in the palace.
