The entrance to Kampung Baru is grand and as soon as I pass through, I enter the shops, markets and restaurants of the district.

Shops and restaurants
In 1900 the Colonial British Administrators designated Kampung Baru as a Malay agricultural settlement, to allow the residents to maintain their rural lifestyle inside the city. I stroll down streets full of traditional Malay houses, generally built of wood and each with its own distinct personality.

The tall modern buildings around the Petronas Twin Towers are visible from all over the district, a reminder of modern Kuala Lumpur across the river.

I pass the school and observe the sign on proper dress for attendance.
And, I spot a few things that are the same world wide, a car wash and a modern restaurant sticker on a car.
I wonder how you become a VIP at McD?
I wander most of the streets of the district, watching the morning life start up in this Malay district and leave through the entrance at which I started.
