Saloma Bridge: Where Tradition Meets Modernity

On February 5, 2020, the elegant Saloma Bridge, sprawling across the Klang River, was made accessible to all. This beautiful bridge is a heartfelt tribute to Saloma, a famous Malaysian singer, and actress known as the "Queen of Malay Cinema" in the late 1950s, as a living memorial to her.

As the day turns into night, the Saloma Bridge transforms into a stunning display of colours, lighting up the Klang River with its magical glow, making it a must-see sight that visitors will never forget.

Petronas Twin Towers and the Saloma Bridge are within walking distance from each other at just one kilometre apart, or a comfortable 15-minute walk. This 69 metre long bridge is decked out in lights and comes alive during the night. Sporting the national colours of Malaysia, red, yellow and blue, Saloma Bridge is one you don’t want to miss out on. Stop along your walk on the bridge to snap a few pictures of yourself as this is one of the most instagrammable spots in Kuala Lumpur.

From the bridge, visitors can get an incredible view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, which unmistakably stands out against the Kuala Lumpur skyline, making it a perfect spot for taking photos and selfies.

The Saloma Bridge on the other hand, is not just great for sightseeing, but also a busy destination where joggers and cyclists can be seen to enjoy their daily exercises along the beautiful route. This bridge, a masterpiece by the renowned Danish architectural company Dissing + Weitling, and built by Malaysia's very own UEM Edgenta Berhad, proudly showcases Malaysia's creativity to the world.
