I started in the middle of Gurney Drive, at Bali Hai. This walk took about 45 minutes with a short rest around half way, but there are a few diversions on the way to see if you wish. My pedometer app said it was 4,800 steps. Basically stay on the “footpath” on the left of the road.
The route is:
Jalan Concordia, then cross
Jalan Kelawai to
Lorong Bangkok (or go one block to the left and take Lorong Burma to the right to see the Burma and Thai temples), then turn right at the end onto
Burma Road, then left into
Jalan Cantonment – you can take the next road left, Jalan Pasar, to see the Pulau Tikus Market, then return to Jalan Cantonment. Later there is the Hor Kai Kong Temple on the right side of the road. At the end cross
Jalan Macalister straight into Jalan Sepoy Lines. Watch the traffic! Here you can take a rest on a bench and watch the sports field or gaze at the mountains. Then go straight across a busy road into
Jalan Scotland, then take the first left into
Jalan Piggot, and follow this winding road through a rural feeling neighbourhood to turn right into
Jalan York, then immediately left into
Halaman York. where you take the second street on your left, which is
Medan York (this is a crescent, so the first street on your left is also Medan York) Walk until you see a large car park on your right, just past the condos, and turn right into the car park, going straight for a minute or two until you reach a park. Turn right into
the park and walk along the path until you see a bridge across the river on the left. Cross the bridge and Suffolk House will be on your left.
Suffolk House is open 10AM to 6PM, with an entrance fee of RM20 redeemable for food and drink inside. You can pay at the guardhouse. Entrance for children under 12 or students in uniform is free.
And here is a video of the walk:
