Do you know Kuala Lumpur?

4 June 2015


Besides traffic jam, shopping malls and cafe hopping, things like art, culture and history of KL are often forgotten. Several friends asked me to compile some of the not-so-popular but interesting places in Kuala Lumpur. As I wish the content to be meticulously useful and accurate, the post takes a while to brew. 

While that post is in preparation, why don't we play a small quiz? 

All photos below are taken by myself during my various visits around the city. Let's see if you recognize all the landmarks in the photos below. 

There's a score box at the end where you'll know where you stand... opps. Let me know if you score 100%, I might send you a gift.

I had fun writing the HTML/CSS code for creating this quiz. Hope you enjoy it.

How was that? I'm curious what's your score.

I discovered these places because as a KL citizen with limited time and money, I still wish to wander and travel without traveling.
