Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Batu Caves and Morib Beach. Step out of Kuala Lumpur to go to Sepang and see Sepang International Circuit, which is approximately 48 minutes away. Pack the 26th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Sunway Lagoon Theme Park. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Petronas Twin Towers, don't miss a visit to Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), stroll through KLCC Park, and meet the residents at Aquaria KLCC.
