Kuala Lumpur is a buzzing metropolis. Wander the squares of the colonial centre, see the famous Petronas Towers, visit the markets and sari shops and restaurants of Little India, and immerse yourself in the energy of Malaysia’s capital.
The temples, squares and mosques of beautiful Malacca have earned UNESCO world heritage status and it’s a truly delightful city in which to wander street markets and enjoy some fantastic seafood on the banks of the river. Take a ride up the revolving tower for staggering 360-degree views as far as the coastline.
In the Cameron Highlands, wander through the tea plantations that produce some of the world’s best brews. Animal lovers, be sure to visit Kuala Terengganu on the east coast, where leatherback turtles come to lay their eggs on the shore.
