Iconic new bridge
Saloma Link, located between Lorang Raja Muda Musa 3 and Jalan Saloma (KLCC-Ampang side), is one of the newest attractions in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Directed northwest to southeast, this iconic new bridge joins the districts of Kampung Baru (northwest) and Kuala Lumpur City Centre (southeast). The name pays homage to the late Saloma (Salmah Ismail), a renowned Malaysian actress and singer who was also the wife of the legendary Tan Sri P. Ramlee.
The stunning architecture is influenced by sirih junjung – the Malays’ traditional betel leaf arrangement. Lit up at night, the bridge is extremely instagrammable. However, with its symmetrical features, the 69-metre-long bridge is just as photo-worthy during the day. Crossing over the Klang River, Saloma Link is pedestrian and cyclist-friendly and is the perfect spot to take a breather and admire the cityscape.
