Kampung Bharu was founded in 1899 and is the oldest residential area in Kuala Lumpur. Through much of KL has been modernised, Kampung Baru still maintains a strong sense of history, as seen through the many traditional Malay wooden houses. Located off Jalan Razak, Kampung Baru is easily accessible by taxi, or the Kampung Baru LRT Station (KJ11) along the RapidKL Rail Kelana Jaya Line if you prefer the train.
This is another foodie area, so to speak. If you’re looking for local favourites like nasi lemak antarabangsa (international nasi lemak) or nasi ayam goreng (fried chicken rice), then this would be the right place. We also recommend that you seek for "Tapai" (a sweet fermented rice dessert, often wrapped in banana leaves), which is one of the favourite local desserts.
