To fully experience this vast and diverse city we would recommend at least 3 days in Kuala Lumpur at the start of this great combination of city, beach and culture mulitcentre.

Penang

We love testing Penang's reputation as Malaysia's food capital, by eating our way through the local Nonya cuisine, a lip-smacking blend of Chinese and Malay styles. Penang is also well known for its cultural sights, sandy beaches, colonial Georgetown and colourful night markets. It is great for those who want to explore what this fantastic island has to offer.
