Once upon a time, A small to medium-sized bright colored and interesting town and residential neighborhood located just outside central Kuala Lumpur, known as Kuala Lumpur’s Little India. An area that was initially developed by Yap Kwan Seng, the fifth and last Kapitan Cina of Kuala Lumpur. Because the whole area of Brickfields was a clay pit and good quality bricks are made from clay, Brickfields became synonymous with good quality bricks. It was also the main depot for Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) (Malayan Railway) during the administration of the British.
Brickfields has many beautiful and old religious structures, some over 100 years old, particularly along Jalan Berhala (“Berhala” means shrine). It can be accessed through many ways as is situated where the city’s main transportation hub lies- the KL Sentral.
Kuala Lumpur Central – Getting to US
It is best to take the bus to KL Sentral, for around RM10. Once at KL Sentral, make your way out of the building heading towards the Tun Sambathan Main Road.
If the bus drops you at the arrival terminal gate, walk into the building, look for the exit to TUN SAMBATHAN, head towards an escalator that takes you down to begin walking along a temporary construction walkway.
if the bus decides to drop you off right where the temporary construction walkway is, follow the crowd and head towards the main road. ask the bus driver how to head towards Jalan TUN SAMBATHAN, if unsure.
Due to constructions, once you reach the main road, keep walking till you come to a T- Junction. Cross the road, Public Bank will be on your Right and a Petrol Station on your Left. Take the first right turn at Ipoh White Coffe( Opp YMCA) and keep walking straight towards Sentral Hotel.
We are sharing the same block as Hotel Sentral. Walk a little further down pass the 99 Mart and you’ll see the stairway going up to PODs. Our green PODs The Backpackers Home sign board will be on the right end corner of the building. Take note the map shows the way if the bus stops at the platform below KL Central. You can even find us on google maps.
Walking routes are shown in green, below.
