Once little more than mud and marsh, compact Kuala Lumpur is a fast rising metropolis which effortlessly blends its colonial past with space-age towers and mega malls. KL, as it's fondly known, is best explored on foot or via the excellent public transport network including buses, metro (Light Rail Transit) and a monorail making it easy to get around. Taxis are also available, but as the roads can be busy, they may prove be a more expensive option.

At its historic heart is Merdeka Square (Independence Square). Ringed by handsome colonial-era buildings, including the Royal Selangor Club and Sultan Abdul Samad Building, the square marks the place where the Malaysian flag was first hoisted after independence from British rule in 1957. Other notable buildings include the imposing Old Railway Station and the highly acclaimed Jamek Mosque, which is a vision of soaring minarets and onion-shaped domes.

KL’s Golden Triangle is comprised of Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) and Chinatown. It’s in modern KLCC where you’ll find the eye-catching Petronas Twin Towers. Soaring 88 storeys, you can take in the sweeping vistas from the sky bridge linking the two towers at the 41st and 42nd floors. Alternatively, for skyline views including the Petronas Twin Towers hotfoot it to the higher observation deck of the Menara KL Tower.

Swanky Bukit Bintang is chock-a-block with shopping malls and boutiques as well as trendy cafés, restaurants and nightspots. There’s more high end fashion in the KLCC or at Berjaya Times Square, while Petaling Street in colourful Chinatown is a bargain-hunter’s paradise, particularly the lively night market.

Food is without a doubt a highlight of any visit to KL, with so many opportunities to feast on diverse local and international cuisine. Expect everything from award-winning gourmet restaurants with menus from around the world, to chic bistros and traditional street stalls that tempt with a choice of inexpensive dishes.

2 nts Hilton Kuching, Kuching
PLUS

Standard room with breakfast

Sarawak's state capital, Kuching, is simply unique. No other city in the region has such a romantic and unlikely history, nor displays its charms with such an easy grace. The narrow, bustling streets are crammed with shops, temples, colonial-style architecture and several interesting museums, including the historic Sarawak Museum.

A journey up and down the Sarawak River is the best way to get your first impression of Kuching, as you see picturesque Malay villages, a golden-domed mosque, a Victorian fort, a whole street of 19th century Chinese shophouses and an imposing wooden-roofed palace, all set against a backdrop of distant mountains.

The Sarawak Museum houses an extensive collection that includes tribal artefacts, indigenous wildlife and a recreated longhouse.

Kuching is also the ideal stepping stone to the cultural delights of Batang Ai, one of Sarawak's Iban heartlands with numerous communities dotted along the network of rivers that feed the Batang Ai reservoir, which is referred to as Sarawak's Blue Lagoon. The typical dwelling for these communities is the longhouse and many of those around the lake receive visitors for overnight stays, which allow you to step back in time and observe their lifestyle, ancient crafts and experience a blow pipe demonstration.

5 nts Lone Pine, Penang

Deluxe room with breakfast

Linked to mainland Malaysia’s west coast by a four mile long bridge Penang is Malaysia’s best-known beach destination and an ideal choice if looking for entertainment as well as relaxation.

Of the island’s many sun-drenched beaches, Batu Ferringhi is the best and where most hotels are found. Sweeping along a stretch of the northern coast, Batu Ferringhi is popular for watersports, although jellyfish do occasionally wash in on some tides, which affects swimming. However, all our hotels have fantastic pool areas and are right on the beachfront.

Do also take the time to explore the island’s lively capital, George Town, whose colonial quarter is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and delivers old-world Asia in spades. Tthe historic centre is easily walkable, although brightly-coloured trishaws offer an alternative way to tour. It’s not all about history though, as the burgeoning street-art scene brings an air of playfulness to the city and makes wandering a joy as you stumble across vibrant murals and fantastic artistic ironworks. Wherever your sightseeing takes you in George Town, you’ll also be sure to stumble across some fabulous coffee shops, many of which wouldn’t look out of place in hip areas of London and New York. Additionally, you can’t escape George Town’s delicious street food. Chinatown and Little India come alive after dark with carts and hawker stalls, while Gurney Drive is perhaps the most famous scene for street food in Southeast Asia.

Further island sights include Penang Hill, where a trip up the 2,270ft funicular railway rewards with breathtaking views; see the slithery residents of the unique Snake Temple; admire the magnificent Buddhist temple Kek Lok Si or go jungle trekking at Penang National Park.

When it comes to shopping Penang has a good mix of modern malls, quaint antique stalls and bustling markets. Don’t miss Little India or Chinatown in the heart of George Town for a slice of local culture, while at Batu Ferringhi, the night market tempts with souvenirs, clothes and handicrafts.

After dark, rooftop cocktail lounges, beach bars and live music venues vie for your attention along with top notch restaurants, charming cafes and sizzling hawker stalls.
