Kuala Lumpur may not be have the most glitzy modern architecture, our technology may not be the most cutting-edge, but the interplay of old versus new is very much alive here as urban decay gives way to towering skyscrapers. If you look hard enough, lying just slightly off the radar of most urban explorers are plenty of gorgeous spots that will make your venturing off the beaten track worth the time and effort.

01/ SPIRAL STAIRCASE @ FACULTY OF ECONOMICS, UNIVERSITY OF MALAYA

The city's oldest university may be famous for its brutalism hallmark architecture Dewan Tunku Canselor, but among the aged complexes within its campus ground lies a hidden spot built of the same style that will be more worth your time. It is the unbelievably gorgeous spiral staircase of the Economics Faculty. The place may have seen better days as attention for development is focused on newer buildings, but it is this exact reason that the vintage vibes are retained so nicely to allow one to be immediately transported into the yesteryear. Do not miss the beautiful hexagonal glass dome roof at the top of the staircase.

There's something about repetitive geometric patterns of spiral staircases that sooths the OCD mind, so here's another hidden gem, this time in the heart of an old flat in Chow Kit called Selayang Flat.

There's so much to love about this single block of U-shaped 17-storey tall apartment, from its exposed staircases to the floor numbers in vintage font and the colorful laundry lines, urban explorers will find many angles to appreciate this vintage playground in.
