Tour Code: KLLGK1 Duration 6 days/5 nights

Kuala Lumpur (or KL as called by the locals) is the largest city in Malaysia. It has grown from a small sleepy Chinese tin-mining village to a bustling metropolis of 7 million in just 150 years. A cultural melting pot with some of the world’s cheapest 5-star hotels, great shopping, even better food and some of nature’s wonders in just an hour away, this dynamic city has much to offer for every visitor. Kuala Lumpur has a year-round tropical rainforest climate, which is warm and sunny, along with abundant rainfall. It can even rain daily during the northeast monsoon season from October to March. KL is known for its eating and shopping, which in its many dozens of air conditioned shopping malls, can be a welcome break from the humidity. Must-sees include the Petronas Towers and a a visit to China Town should also be high on your agenda. Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast. Home to fine, powdery beaches, it’s a perfect place to kick back and relax after the hustle and bustle of KL. If you fancy something a little more adventurous, then it has water sports, trekking in the rainforest, wildlife watching, cable cars over the forest, rice fields, and waterfalls. It even has Geopark status by UNESCO. There really is something for everyone in this tropical island.

At 360 metres above the ground, on the observation deck, you’ll be able to see a spire up close and enjoy breath taking views of Kuala Lumpur.In a small corner of downtown Kuala Lumpur, a slice of village life still exists among the growing metropolis that is Malaysia’s capital. Kampung Baru, or “new village”, has been populated since the 1880s and today has become an amalgamation of seven villages over an area of around 100-hectares downtown. Officially listed as a Malay Agricultural Settlement by the British in 1900, Kampung Baru was first established as a pastoral community to attract rural Malays into Kuala Lumpur. It is a rare survivor of the almighty wrecking ball, swung by those in charge of urban redevelopment. Many of the homes had frangipani trees, coconut palms and banana trees on their lots while skyscrapers in the background overlook the timber houses built on stilts. Then on to lunch at Atmosphere@360 the revolving restaurant at KL Tower. On a clear day, you’ll get to see a fantastic bird’s eye view of the beautiful Kuala Lumpur skyline.

Pedestrians clog the walkway while browsing through a myriad of goods offered from hawker stalls on both sides of the street. Red lanterns and vibrant signs compete for space overhead while noodle carts and eateries fill the air with tempting smells.Then drive through the Little India in Brickfields. What used to be a simple residential neighbourhood just outside of Kuala Lumpur has now been transformed into a colourful community with streets lined with quaint shops and restaurants. Then it is time to drive around and visit the major landmark of the city which includes Jamek Mosque (outside), Independence Square as well as the Moorish-style Sultan Abdul Samad Buidling and the Old Railway Station Building before returning to the hotel.
