About Merdeka Square In Kuala Lumpur

Merdeka Square, formerly known as “Selangor Club Padang” or just “Padang,” is a very popular tourist attraction. Merdeka Square literally means “Independence Square,” where the Malaysian Flag was hoisted for the first time on 31st August 1957 at midnight. The square is surrounded by multiple flags and in the center is the world’s largest flagpole (95 meters tall). The surrounding flags represent various Federal Territories and Malaysian provinces. Merdeka Square holds a huge historical significance in Malaysian history and is surrounded by various other historical buildings. A tourist can spend quite a while here just being mesmerized by the colonial architecture of all the buildings. Right next to the square is Sultan Abdul Samad Building, formerly known as “Government Offices.” To the south of Merdeka Square, is Kuala Lumpur City Gallery, which houses miniature models explaining the story of Kuala Lumpur. It also hosts a Spectacular City Model show in the gallery itself. It has opened to the public recently and has gained a lot of attention from tourists.

Merdeka Square at night is a sight not to be missed. All the surrounding buildings, as well as Merdeka Square, are lit up for the light show. This show showcases the colonial architecture of the buildings. The square looks like a vision lit up with beautifully colored lights. As the former mayor of Kuala Lumpur announced that the roads would be closed from 9 PM to 4 AM, many of the local families, as well as the tourists, started walking around at night to enjoy their nights.

There is also a fountain, where families and tourists sit and enjoy a peaceful and quiet evening. On 31st August every year, there is a parade the Independence Day parade which is not to be missed. The culture of Malaysia is depicted beautifully in the parade every year and is a joyous occasion for everyone present.

Merdeka Square at night is filled with families and tourists, making it a vibrant surrounding. On the first week of every month, food trucks will be operating to cater to the crowd that visits this historical treasure. There are multiple races which are also arranged around the square to keep the public entertained. Merdeka Square at night gathers every person present and transforms them into one single community.

    • Trip to Singapore

      We have booked our Singapore Malaysia family trip through Satguru Holidays. They have tie up with another agency called 'Asia Good Life" in Singapore and 'Red Apple" in Malaysia. All the arrangements they made in Singapore was good in the terms of Hotel, Food, Pickup, Sightseeing, Entry Tickets ... etc. But in Malaysia, the service was poor. We chosen Coach Bus service to go to Malaysia, the bus was good, but driver was arrogant. We reached the hotel by 5 pm and no activities till next day morning. They picked us from the hotel in the morning and dropped us at 'Genting Highlands' till 6.30 pm. It is 4-5 hours is enough to cover the area and rides, but we have waited there more than 4 hours to back to the hotel. Next Day morning they advised us to check out the hotel at 8.30 a.m., the driver picked us at 9 a.m. for what they called 'City Tour' and dropped us back at the hotel at 12:00 pm. noon, we have waited until 6:10 pm. at the hotel lobby without the facility to change the dress and freshup, we had to use the toilet to change the dress. The driver suppose to pickup us at 5:30 pm. to the Airport, he late for 50 minutes, which put us in dilemma & panic and resulted over speeding to the airport to catch the flight.

    • Trip to Malaysia

      lack of coordination during transfers in Kuala-lampur , we wait almost 1.5 hour in KL airport, quite disappointed with transfer from KL airport to Hote during arrival, I feel "I Need Trip Travels Pvt Ltd" could add few more spot in day 1 itenary (half day KL city tour). other than that the pickup was on time and the guides/drivers were professional and very helpful. Lankawi itenary day 5 was not covered as mentioned , Nupur Malik from "I Need Trip Travels Pvt Ltd" was very helpful in clearing all our doubts and fix the confusion, she was prompt in answering our queries but still we had to ask each and every time what will be covered during the day, This has to be improved for a better travel experience hope this has will be taken care for customers going forward. Other then that we had a wonderful experience, everything was perfect !! I loved the whole package and was very happy with the whole arrangements . Shudhanshu also was quite supportive in organizing the whole trip and the places were wonderful and we had a blast !

      Travel Triangle helped us to choose the honeymoon package from various agents and customise it as per our needs. Abhinav and his Holiday Matrix not just made an itinerary and necessary arrangements but ensured its quality delivery. We were able to swap the schedule for the next day at the last moment. That how flexible they were and we didn't miss out any locations as per the itinerary. The driver and our guide Ode was very friendly and took us to good restaurants with good ambience. The main thing is to note the currency exchange where we lost some amount. The best thing is to carry US dollars from India as INR doesn't have a standard exchange rate in Bali and had to be bargained.
