Wall-full of art: Graffiti is an expression of art that has been quite popular in KL. Several streets here are decorated with colourful social messages. Graffiti, for many, is also seen as expression of individual thought. Embark on a graffiti walk by visiting Pasar Seni, Jalan Sultan, Masjid Jamek, etc.

Once you satiate yourself in KL, just book tickets from redbus; board a luxury bus and set forth to explore the cultural vibrancy found throughout the country.
