Kuala Lumpur Melaka & Penang - Chinatown, Merdeka Square & Bukit Nanas (Chapter)
This is the Chinatown, Merdeka Square & Bukit Nanas chapter from Lonely Planet's Kuala Lumpur, Melaka & Penang guidebook.
If there's one part of Kuala Lumpur that's a microcosm of Malaysia's ethnic and historic mix, it's Chinatown. Meanwhile, Merdeka Square, ringed by impressive colonial-era buildings, is where the British handed over control of Malaya to its citizens in 1957. East of here rise the slopes of Bukit Nanas, the oldest protected piece of jungle in Malaysia.
