Stop At: Thean Hou Temple, 65 Persiaran Endah Off Jalan Syed Putra, Kuala Lumpur 50460 Malaysia

Thean Hou Temple is not old, having been built between 1981 and 1987. Up close, you can tell that underneath the traditional ornate decorative facade it is a modern structure.

The temple is certainly large, spreading over six tiers. It is managed by Malaysia's Hainanese community who descended from sea-faring fisher folk from the island of Hainan, China.

Being at the mercy of the weather, these fishermen would always pray at their temples before setting out to sea. This temple is dedicated to the Goddess Thean Hou (Tian Hou - the Heavenly Mother).

The main prayer hall contains altars to three deities. These are (L-R), Shui Wei Sheng Niang (the Goddess of the Waterfront), Tian Hou and Guan Yin(Goddess of Mercy).

Although most Hainanese in Malaysia are no longer involved in fishing they will still flock to this temple, together with other local Chinese and foreign visitors to pray for good fortune and blessings in other aspects of their lives.

The temple complex has a number of other attractions. Devotees crossing the Fortune Bridge might find themselves sprinkled with holy water by monks for good luck. There is also a Wishing Well and a Medicinal Herb Garden.

The tortoise pond is very popular, especially with children, and contains hundreds of tortoises cramped close together.

There are a number of souvenir shops and a restaurant to cater for the coach loads of tourists who come here. In the grounds of the temple you can find statues of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac and descriptions of the characteristics of those born under the respective signs.

Through complimentary guided tours, visitors will learn about the remarkable development of tin mining in the Malay Peninsula in the 1800s as well as view traditional pewtersmithing tools, antique pewter and ancient tin currency at the Centre's Pewter Museum.

At the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre, you are introduced to the world of pewter through sight, touch and sound.

In the Hall of Frames, visitors pass through a hall decked with an impressive collection of past and present Royal Selangor photo frames, where you can touch, feel and appreciate the subtle warmth and flexibility of the alloy.

Stop At: Little India Brickfields, Jalan Travers to Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur 50470 Malaysia

Brickfields is many things to many people: a concentrated wedge of Indian culture; a bewildering smorgasbord of different worship houses; a haven of blind massage centres; the crossroads for commuters coming in from all parts of the country; a perfect study in contrasts. However you define it, one thing is in agreement: Brickfields is a vibrant community with a soul of its own.

Brickfields began as the centre of brick-making in the late 19th century, after a huge fire and flood swept through Kuala Lumpur in 1881. The double disasters took turns destroying the town’s wooden and thatched structures. Sir Frank Swettenham, British resident at that time, responded by ordering the use of brick and tile in the construction of buildings, thus summoning the town’s purpose into being.

Today, the museum houses various exhibits depicting the historical background of the country. The exhibits are on a rotational basis, so it is best to call the museum ahead to check out what their exhibits are at the time.

A walk through the museum grounds will also unveil various national treasures including the istana (palace) of Sultan Zainal Abidin III, Sultan of Terengganu in 1884. The palace, Istana Satu, is built entirely of hardwood, and built in the museum compounds in 1974.
