History & Culture

The earliest kingdoms established were Buddhist. In the peninsula, Kedah was the most important of these due to its strategic location at the northern entrance to the Straits of Malacca. Between the 7th and 13th centuries, Kedah, the Straits of Malacca and the Borneon coasts came under the control of Indian empire, whose regional bases were in Sumatra. So deep was the impact of these kingdoms on local society that the 1,500 years of Malaysian history between the arrival of the first Indians and the coming of Islam is called the Indian period.
The Buddhist Srivijaya kingdom reigned for four centuries and the Hindu Cola Empire for one, and these civilizations left behind numerous candi religious edifices at Bujang Valley and Santubong, as well as religious figurines and votive tablets. During this period, Buddhism, Hinduism and South Indian culture and language became widespread.

Things to Do in Malaysia

The Lake Gardens Segway tour Malaysia is a fun and environmentally friendly way to see Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park’s many animal parks, landmarks, and scenic spots. The two-hour tour covers a 10-kilometre sightseeing route within the humongous park, starting at the National Museum (Muzium Negara). Also, you can meet up with your guide at a specific location in the park. Also pay attention to the fact that Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park is fully outdoors, so we highly recommend choosing either morning or evening sessions to enjoy a more comfortable experience.

There are many photo opportunities throughout your Lake Gardens Segway tour, especially at the Perdana Botanical Gardens, Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park, and Kuala Lumpur Bird Park. If you’re scared about navigating a Segway, there’ll be a helpful guide on hand to lead you through the entire excursion. Helmets are also provided for added safety.
