A walk in this vicinity allows you to view some wonderful heritage buildings that clearly show a determination to be upkept. Signage on the nearby bridge that crosses the Klang River, provides considerable detail for many of the surrounding buildings.

It is a short pedestrian walk linking the 2 attractions. There is a clock at the center. Signage in chinese character is peeling off. There are stores, money changers, restaurants, etc at both sides of this attraction.
