Landmark attraction with a clock counting down to the year 2020 & an illuminated waterfall.

Walked around here around 2 pm however the clock was not functioning. I think it might be better to visit when it’s dark.

Merdeka Square is a square located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is situated in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. Literally Independence Square, it was formerly known as the Selangor Club Padang or simply the “Padang” and was used as the cricket green of the Selangor Club. Wikipedia

When I visited the square there a Ramadan Bazaar. There were mostly clothes for sale.  The square itself is not so interesting.

Cultural heritage site with restored art deco facade offering shopping, eateries & an outdoor stage.

There are so many souvenirs to buy and the price is quite low compared to Singapore. I got some natural handmade soap. 

If you have never experienced it before, get some Fish massage/therapy. As soon as your feet enter the water, the fish rush to your eat the dead flesh from under your feet. If you can handle the first 30s, then you will make it to the end. It was hilarious seeing the other girls struggling and laughing.

My phone fell when I stepped out of the Central Market. I walked to Petaling Street and then Low Yat Plaza to get it repaired.

Low Yat Plaza is the oldest shopping centre specializing in electronics and IT products in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In 2009, Plaza Low Yat was named “Malaysia’s Largest IT Lifestyle Centre” by the Malaysia Book of Records. Wikipedia

Tip: Haggle every price, even if you think it’s low. I was able to get a lower price on all the items I purchased by haggling and also visiting different shops and comparing the prices.
