Destinations in Malaysia

  • Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur – known to the savvy visitor as ‘KL’ – is Malaysia’s brash and bustling boom-town: a heady urban blend of impossibly tall towers and ornate temples, mega-malls and chic eateries, big business and pure pleasure.
  • Langkawi


    Langkawi may be Malaysia’s best-known holiday hang-out, but this peaceful patch of paradise is so laid-back, it’s horizontal.
  • Pahang


  • Penang


    Vibrantly multicultural Penang – a turtle-shaped island off the north-west coast of Peninsular Malaysia – tantalises with its colonial charm, colourful streetscapes and mouth-watering mix of cuisines.
  • Sabah


    Nestled on the north-east tip of Malaysian Borneo, Sabah has almost mythical status. Where else in the world can you climb a majestic mountain, venture into primeval rainforest and swim with turtles, all in a matter of hours?
