I'm 99% sure that you're gonna come across Merdeka square during your visit in Kuala Lumpur - be it even a short one. Historic place surrounded by interesting buildings. Grassy grounds and fountains. Possibly the highest flagpole in the world. Great panorama of the city in the evening.
I think Merdeka Square is always an interesting stop - with a lot of history and surrounded by many buildings of historical importance and beauty such as Masjid Jamek and Sultan Abdul Samad building, it's also easily accessible, only a short walk from Pasar Seni.
It is a vast open space that is surrounded on all sides by the city's heritage buildings and clubs. The National Flag is unfurled at this location each year on the Malaysian Independence Day!It is a good place to take a walk, and discover the heritage of the city.
