Itinerary

Stop 1: Kuala Lumpur

A city that’s long been on the rise, Kuala Lumpur is instantly recognisable from its skyscraper studded skyline – thanks mainly to the iconic twin Petronas Towers, which come with a Skybridge and Observation Deck for travellers eager to see what all the fuss is about. But there’s plenty to see below KL’s towering monoliths too.

Day 1: Flight to Kuala Lumpur

Fly daily from London Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur.

Days 2-4: Experience Kuala Lumpur

A staple of any modern city, Kuala Lumpur comes with endless epicurean ‘go to’ landmarks. There’s Jalan Alor’s strand of Malay and Chinese restaurants, with its street a plastic sea of picnic tables; there’s the authentic Malay street food in the (as yet) untouched Kampung Baru borough; and there’s the upscale global gastronomy that accompanies its equally high-end hotels. Stay 3 nights at your hotel.

Day 5: Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu

 

Stop 2: Kota Kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu has all those delicious city break ingredients: titanic malls, cultural curiosities, an up-and-coming waterfront zone, and a dining scene reflecting the global travellers that flock here. But it throws in some pretty imaginative add-ons, with easy trips out of town to spots like Tanjung Aru Beach, Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, and Mari Mari Cultural Village.

Days 511: Experience Kota Kinabalu

Every city has that ‘best place to get your bearings’ and here it’s Signal Hill Observatory Platform, delivering views over the city, sea, and islands. That might give you a guide to KK’s scale but, to reach its soul, head for the markets – including Central Market, Handicraft Market, and Night Market – a hawker hotspot for Malay meals. Stay 7 nights at your hotel. 

Day 12: Fly home

Fly home via Kuala Lumpur
