Kuala Lumpur is a fascinating city. An urban metropolis, its people are some of the friendliest in Southeast Asia. The Golden Triangle, in the centre of the city, is home to the best shops and restaurants. However, if you want to balance your experiences with some homegrown flavour, head to Chinatown or Little India to explore bustling markets and peruse food stalls and hawker restaurants. Kuala Lumpur’s green heart, Dataran Merdeka was once the centre of the old, colonial city and is now a place where locals go to relax in tranquil surroundings. With hundreds of holiday destinations available to you in Malaysia, you will be spoiled for choice. Head to the pristine beaches and sacred temples of Penang or the island of Langkawi or explore the rainforests of the Kinabalu National Park.
