Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur or KL to Asian residents truly is an Asian city, with towering skyscrapers and modern shopping malls, just around the corner of historical temples and traditional markets. Eating, shopping and nightlife is the obvious choice of activities for most but don't overlook the many parks and heritage centers outside the city area, for a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

While Terengganu offers as much a picturesque view as any other state in Malaysia, artistic heritage is what lies between its pristine beaches and marine life. From the traditional handmade batik to kain songket, you can really get a taste of the traditional kampong (village) living. Don’t forget to drop in to the fishing village where the boats are handmade and the seafood is fresh from the sea. More on this destination >
