It's my first time visiting the Saloma Link Bridge in Kuala Lumpur and I must say it's absolutely beautiful!

The Saloma Link Bridge KL is located in between Lorong Raja Muda Musa 3 (Kampung Baru) and Jalan Saloma (KLCC-Ampang). This bridge took nearly 2 years to complete and was opened to the public in early February 2020.

The launch of the Saloma Bridge is an effort in promoting Malaysia's tourism. At the same time, the bridge has made it easier for locals to access these two places.

Before the bridge was completed, the walking time from Kampung Baru to KLCC will take about 30 minutes as they are separated by the AKLEH Highway and the Klang River. Now the journey is shortened to a 10-minute walk, thanks to the bridge.
