Yes ✅, she wishes to enjoy holidays within her own living city 🌆🏙/ home country 🚗🚌đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ

Yeah‌ Have you heard about an instagrammable attraction 📍 in Kuala Lumpur (KL), the capital city 🌆🏙 of Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿâ“â‰ïž

It was before Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ‘s Movement Control Order (MCO) even started though…

She đŸ‘©đŸ» is gonna sharing đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“aboutthis instagrammable bridge 🌉named Pintasan Saloma in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ‘s national language aka Saloma Link Bridge 🌉

Guess what❓⁉

It’s now the longest single span steel structure elevated walkway 🌉 in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ The orientation of its floor finishes along the walkway is facing the Qibla (Read more via 🌐 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qibla) to create continuity ↔ between the Pintasan Saloma & Jalan Ampang Muslim Cemetery Park

Yes ✅, this Saloma Link with its main structure i.e. A covered elevated steel pedestrian bridge 🌉 already launched for public visit since 5 Feb 2020 in the city 🌆🏙 which commissioned by Kampong Bharu Development Corporation (PKB) 😀

It stretches 370m & span across the AKLEH Highway 🛣 & Klang River of 69m long. Its curved steel roof canopy houses the with 4.1K diamond facade panels & equipped with LED lights💡💡which brightly-lit up at night 🌃🌌 The state-of-the-art lighting actually changing the light colours from time to time to creating amazing images for public to enjoy their walking đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸš¶đŸ»â€â™‚ïž & capturing unique moments with it 📾đŸ“čđŸŽ„
