Speaking of amazing, the Merdeka Square in Kuala Lumpur will be closest thing that I’ll get as being an Amazing Race participant. It was the starting line of The Amazing Race Asia 1. This place is so significant and so cool, because this is where the Malayan flag hoisted for the first time on August 31, 1957Literally called the Independence Square, you can see the grand culture of Malaysia here in this square. It’s just in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, and it is reminiscent of plazas in Italy and even Singapore’s CBD neighborhood.
