  • Dayabumi Complex is a building that can be seen from the vicinity of the Center and Chinatown. Most impresses with its lace pattern on the shell plating.

  • Unusual white wood building. Skyscraper next to central market. It can be seen from many points of the city. And you can navigate to find the market.

  • Near Merdeka Square is this design building built in Islamic style. Design is nice but sober-looking, jumps there doesn't really matter.
