Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur has launched an
interactive photography package in partnership with Leica.
Guests of the hotel will be able to capture the sights of
Kuala Lumpur and experience the city through a different
perspective with Leica Store Malaysia’s appointed professional
photographer who will share his photography skills throughout a
chauffer-driven excursion that encompasses the city’s cultural and
Sites include the Petronas Twin Towers – the
tallest twin towers in the world, Kuala Lumpur Railway Station –
established since 1910, The National Mosque – featuring a
73-metre-high minaret and a 16-pointed star concrete main roof and
the Batik demonstration centre – one of Malaysia’s most
prestigious handicraft centres.
Guests can gain valuable experience in the
skills of photography in terms of colour, composition, lighting,
texture, patterns and contrasts, and will be able to ‘take home’ a
piece of Kuala Lumpur in the form of photographic memories.
Other photographic opportunities for guests to explore
include views from the sky bridge that connects the iconic
88-storey twin towers, or an evening stroll through the tree-lined
paths and flowering gardens of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre Park,
or the nightly entertainment of the KLCC Lake Symphony Fountain at
the Esplanade KLCC at 8, 9 and 10pm.
Unfortunately, while the specialist photography tips and advice are included
in the promotion,
guests won't be able to use Leica’s latest and greatest - or even
their entry level models,
instead guests need to bring their own camera equipment. A missed
opportunity by Leica, perhaps.

Park View Room
