Kampung Baharu Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 94 photos
Kampung Baharu from what I saw is an old town inhabited mostly by the Malay Muslims situated northmost in the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. It was among the oldest Malay settlement in Kuala Lumpur since the early Muddy Estuaristic days.
Tourists can access to this village via Chow Kit area which is on the main road Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman where the Monorail pass over on top. The road name is Raja Alang where you can see lots of street vendors and big crowds where both sides were shops and a big shopping complex as well. Further walk in will come to a junction also has big crowds where you can see the Sikh temple of Guru Nanak Darbar. Walk another 100 meters or so is the main Mosque and also the territory of Kampung Baharu. The cross joint road is Jalan Raja Abdullah of whom was mentioned in the history of Muddy Estuary as one of the pioneer in the region that ultimately sends 87 tin miners to excavate tin in the Estuarine where our beautiful Masjid Jamek later constructed. Explore deeper into Kampung Baharu will come to the river which is the origin of civilization and this one is Kelang River.
D24 is a code name for this specific tropical fruits called durian. It was said this special breeding one has better taste than most others but to me, they are the same because I seldom eat durians and all durians are equally good taste. I eat durians only when I go to village of my friend where they have own dusun (fruit farm).
The way of eating durian is simple as tourists only have to stand near the durian stall and then show a universal gesture, one please by pointing at the durian. It will cost you the most 10 Ringgit, no harm for a try. You don’t have to do anything as the durian seller will split open for you. What you do is using your fingers to pick up the ripened meat and then open your mouth, stuff inside.
In the photo is the main Mosque of Kampung Baharu which is at the leftmost and the road lies horizontally is Raja Abdullah road. The building at right is a medical centre and if you take the road in the middle, you can see both sides have street vendors and restaurants. The area is completely Malay which is good for photographers to snap and then further deeper were mostly residential areas and shops as well. To explore the area is not that difficult if you compare with Cheras areas or Sungai Besi areas. Taxi driver should be able to assist you to explore this area, so please enjoy your travel.
