Kuala Lumpur — 5 nights

Garden City of Lights

A holiday in Kuala Lumpur, a modern metropolis and capital of Malaysia, reveals a place where colonial influences, Asian traditions, and modern aesthetics come together in urban architecture and street layout.
Step off the beaten path and head to Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque and Turkish Baths. There's much more to do: browse the different shops at Central Market Kuala Lumpur, take in the spiritual surroundings of The Thai Chetawan Temple (Wat Chetawan), make a splash at Sunway Lagoon, and see the interesting displays at MinNature Malaysia.
