[ Kuala Lumpur ] 當個市中心兩小時的觀光客

  Kuala Lumpur
我們繞了一大圈後來才找到進去獨立廣場的地下停車場的入口,出來就可以看到這整個獨立廣場。
這廣場主要是為了1957年開始慶祝馬來西亞脫離英國的殖民統治成為獨立的國家,每年這邊也是獨立紀念日的主要活動地點,這邊的大國旗桿也堪稱是世界最高的國旗桿之一。
The entrance to the underground parking is beside the St. Mary Church. This is the field facing the majestic building of the Square. The Merdeka Square (or the indepdence square) was an important administrative centre for the British during the colonial period. In 1957 when Malaysia became independent it naturally became the centre for national indepdence day celebrations. One of the highest flag poles in the world can also be found here.

Kuala Lumpur
這個廣場最氣派的建築就是這棟 蘇丹阿都沙末大廈 (Sultan Abdul Samad Building),由當時英國於
1894-1897年為當時英國在此殖民的行政單位所建,後來也是這邊的最高法院,聯邦法院等其他行政單位的辦公地點直到那些單位移到新的行政區。
The most eye-catching landmark of the Square is this Sultan Abdul Samad Building. It was built between 1897-1987 by the British for its administrative functions. It later houses the High Court, Federal Court, Appeal Court and other administrative offices before these were moved to the new Putrajaya administrative area.

Kuala Lumpur

這建築是由當時的英國建築師 AC Norman 所建成,主要是摩爾風 (Moorish), 靈感來自於 Norman去了非洲和印度看了當地的建築。
The building was designed by British architect A.C. Norman. The Moorish style took inspirations from Norman's visits to Africa and India.

Kuala Lumpur

一旁的這個是布料博物館 (Museum of Textiles). 但JG沒興趣那也就算了.
Beside the majestic Sultan Abdul Samad Building is a smaller building now houses the Textile Museum. JG was not interested so we didn't bother to go there.

Kuala Lumpur

我們就到廣場旁的音樂博物館看看,還好是不用收費的,不然出來會覺得有點空虛... 呵. (因為感覺沒什麼料).
Beside the Kuala Lumpur City Gallery is the Music Museum. 

Kuala Lumpur

這個音樂博物館其實只有 1層樓,而且所展示的主要是只是在馬來西亞大概可以看到哪些樂器。
There's only 1 floor to this museum. 

Kuala LumpurKuala Lumpur
除了馬來人 (這邊華人叫他們 "番仔")自己的樂器,其他大部份就是不同在馬來西亞的印度人、華人等的樂器。
Other than the musical instruments of the local Malays, the other musical instruments on display are those from the Indians, Chinese, Indonesians,etc. who reside in Malaysia.

Kuala Lumpur

馬來西亞各地的代表性樂器。
Musical instruments that represents each area of Malaysia.

我覺得這張比較妙的地方是這邊的展示品居然比較貴重的都直接放像是保險櫃的展示櫃...
Some exhibits are locked up in "safe" here. 

Kuala Lumpur

我覺得這個廣場比較有可看性的應該就屬這個 Kuala Lumpur City Gallery. 如果你以為是來這邊看什麼藝術品或畫展,你就錯了。這棟曾經也是英國人蓋來當辦公室的古蹟建築,曾經是印刷&出版政府文件&刊物的重地,後來又陸續成了人力局辦公室&郵政安全局的辦公場所,在 1986年吉隆坡政府用300萬馬幣買下把它變成吉隆坡第一個對外開放的公立圖書館,這邊主要是吉隆坡紀念圖書館,隔壁還有一棟更大一點的圖書館。
If there's something worth a visit for tourists to get some summary about what the country or Kuala Lumpur it's all about, it'd be the Kuala Lumpur City Gallery. This is not a place to look at artists paintings or pieces. This building was built by the British and was used as a pressing house to produce and publish important government reports and documents. Then it housed various other administrative offices. In 1986 it was bought by the City Hall of Kuala Lumpur and converted into a public library. There's now a larger library building next door. 

Kuala Lumpur

一進門就可看到這大吉隆坡地圖,你所有需要知道的地方都在這上面了,進去參觀需要門票,但這門票是可以抵結束時到 cafe 的消費。
The huge map of Kuala Lumpur and the styles of architecture that you'd find in this city. Admission is RM 5.00 but you can use that to redeem some purchase at the cafe at the end of the visit.

Kuala Lumpur

我覺得這個景點把馬來西亞的歷史&故事交代得比國家博物館好。一目了然這國家的歷史重大事件.
 It introduces some important Malaysia history facts and shows you a miniature Kuala Lumpur and its future development. 

Kuala Lumpur

特展展出星馬華人的新年故事, "撈生" 這道料理還真是只有這邊的華人有. 基本上盤內就是有這些繽紛色彩的食材,所有坐在圓桌的親朋好友拿起還沒開始用餐的筷子開始一起撈&攪擭讓所有的食材&醬料混在一起,同時要講出新年願望和祝福的話,"撈"得越高越好。
There's a speical exhibition on Chinese New Year in Malaysia. This colourful dish is a must-have for Chinese residing in Malaysia and Singapore during Chinese New Year. It'll be first dish and every one seated at the table will "mix" the food in the dish while saying some blessings or speak their wishes for the new year until the colourful ingredients are all mixed together.

Kuala Lumpur

這邊廁所外的戶外庭院用了這些花布展示起來特別漂亮 (而且布紋都好美),不過不太確定這個是要展示什麼... 拍照是滿美的.
In the courtyard outside of the toilet is a textile exhibit. Beautiful colours and textures but not too sure what it was all about.

Kuala Lumpur

若是第一次來馬來西亞&到了吉隆玻,對於這個國家沒什麼 idea,一定要先來這個景點看這個超簡短的 summary 影片。把這國家美好的一些重點 & 未來20年的重大硬體建設 highlight 了出來。

Kuala Lumpur

影片應該不到10分鐘吧,出來後就可以看到袖珍版的獨立廣場與周圍建築。

Kuala Lumpur

這邊可看一些工人做一些組裝拆解等。
On your way out to the souvenir shop, you'd see some staff working on the product to be sold in the shop.

Kuala Lumpur

結束導覽後基本上就是個大賣場囉! 因為這主要是由一間建築模型的廠商所承包的景點,他們比較有特色的就是木質模型。
 

Kuala Lumpur

因為這邊主要應該是被這間建築模型公司給承包了,以馬來西亞&吉隆玻為推廣切入點,用他們的產品蓋出袖珍版的吉隆坡,還加上聲光秀,最後還有個大紀念品區賣他們的產品。用古蹟來作 產品showroom +推廣國家觀光,真是厲害!

紀念品店逛得差不多就可拿門票那RM5.00來抵用這邊 cafe 的消費。有喝的有吃的,基本上就是體驗馬來西亞食物的小舖。
