Additional Information

Introduction

A perfectly preserved tract of land, Kampung Baru is the oldest residential area in Kuala Lumpur. Unlike other most places in the area, Kampung Baru has avoided the commercialism that the rest of the city has succumbed to and it has remained the same for many years. Thought to have a worth somewhere around $1.4 billion dollars, the elders of the area have refused to change things and allow developers to take over, leaving it intact as a small village community. This area is a great place to see a different side of the city of Kuala Lumpur, as it is not uncommon to see chickens running around as a permanent fixture within the neighborhood.
