Itinerary

Day 1:

Tonight our Malaysia small group tour will stay in; KUALA LUMPUR - Our short Malaysia small group tour officially starts when you check into your Kuala Lumpur accommodation. A welcoming dinner will be had in the evening.

Better known to all as simply K.L. A bit like a smaller version of Bangkok is K.L. with loads to see and do. The Petronas Twin Towers is the must see for most

ALSO:

  • For an even higher view of the city try the 421 metre high Menara KL (KL Tower) built on top of the Bukit Manas Forest Reserve.
  • Thean Hou Temple
  • National Art Gallery
  • Islamic Arts Museum
  • National museum
  • Then in no particular order it may be the colonial Kuala Lumpur Train Station, Merdeka Square, Masjid Negara (National Mosque), Masjid Jamek (Friday Mosque) or stroll around the Central Market or Lake gardens where the K.L. bird Park; www.klbirpark.com is the worlds largest walk in aviary with almost 200 species of birds. But just like Bangkok; A month wouldn't allow enough time to see all the sights.   D.

Day 2:

 KUALA LUMPUR - Start your exploration of K.L. with an included half day city tour with a local operator to some of the major attractions The rest of the day is free and the  city centre is reasonably compact  which makes for an interesting stroll in itself. B.

FOR SHOPPING:
 NearbyPetaling street in Chinatown  has a multitude of street vendors. Other opportunities for shopping include The Central Market or the Royal Selangor Pewter Factory. With the new, cheap and extensive light rail and monorail things are now a breeze to get around to see all the attractions. Well worth a visit also is the Batu Caves, a short bus ride out of town. Walk up the 272 steps to the impressive Temple Cave. The Batu Caves is where the yearly, three day Thaipusan Hindu festival is centred around.

Berjaya Times Square.
Mid Valley megamall.
Pavillion KL.

Melaka has far to many attractions to list here. Nonya food is one of the different styles more famous in Melaka but you will find a plethora of others, both local and international . Between seeing and eating you can browse at the many shops along the famous Jonkers street now called Jalan Hang Jebat or at the modern shopping mall of Dataran Pahlawan. B.
