All the participants from 10 Asean countries visited the Sultan Abdul Samad building, one of the city’s most enduring attractions. Built in 1897, the building is said to have been the finest in the Malay states. It features an imposing porch, graceful horseshoe-shaped arches, shiny copper domes and a 41.2 metre-tall clock tower. The ground floor of the building houses a tourist information centre.

Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka Square) is one of the most important heritage sites in the city. The Union Jack was lowered there to mark the country’s independence from colonial rule, hence the name Dataran Merdeka, which means independence or freedom square.
