Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

— 9 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.
Shop till you drop at Central Market Kuala Lumpur and Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque. Museum-lovers will get to explore Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia and Shalini Ganendra Fine Art. There's still lots to do: Head underground at Batu Caves, admire the landmark architecture of Petronas Twin Towers, go for a walk through KLCC - Bukit Bintang Pedestrian Walkway, and buy something for everyone on your list at Pavilion KL.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Kuala Lumpur trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Cairo, Egypt

— 5 nights

City of a Thousand Minarets

More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Get a sense of the local culture at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Great Sphinx. Head to Khan Al-Khalili and Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branchfor some retail therapy. Venture out of the city with trips to Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara) and Giza (Giza Plateau & Pyramids of Giza). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, contemplate the long history of Mosque of Muhammad Ali, wander the streets of Coptic Cairo, and walk around Al-Azhar Park.

Malaysia travel guide

4.1
Architectural Buildings · Shopping Malls · Parks
An unusual blend of a developing nation and the modern world, Malaysia ranks as one of the richest countries in Southeast Asia, its prosperity largely resting on thriving high-tech industries. Malaysia vacations remain a more affordable alternative to the expensive tourism in some neighboring countries. Take a trip to Malaysia to explore busy cities filled with colonial-era architecture, tranquil tea plantations supporting a large portion of the local population, and dozens of scattered islands happily evading the worst aspects of mass tourism. While there may be fewer visitors, there's no shortage of fine beaches, mangrove estuaries, and verdant rainforests filled with exotic wildlife.
