Malaysia Airlines operates to major International airports worldwide and connects from KL and from Singapore to Langkawi, Penang and Medan. The budget carrier Air Asia connects from KL to all major Malaysian and Indonesian airports, including Langkawi and Penang, plus major southeast Asian airports. From the UK, you can fly Malaysia Airlines from London Heathrow and Air Asia from London Stanstead.
Public transport in Malaysia is reliable and inexpensive, particularly in Peninsular Malaysia. Budget flights are a great option for hopping around the region, especially given that no ferries connect Peninsular and east Malaysia. Sabah and Sarawak have their own travel peculiarities – in Sarawak, for instance, you’re reliant on boats, and occasionally planes, for some long-distance travel.

Check in & Check out
Petronas Twin Towers Once the tallest building in the world, Petronas Twin Towers are now the world’s tallest twin structures. Located in the Kuala Lumpur city centre, the Petronas Twin Towers are 88-storey high and the two towers joined at the 41st and 42nd floors. This double-decked Skybridge is one of its major draws as it offers amazing views of the city. The observation deck set on Level 86, also allows visitors to get a great view of the city.
Batu Caves This Hindu temple and shrine is one of the best-known tourist attractions in Kuala Lumpur. Located about 10 kilometres north of the city, it's known for its huge caves, said to be around 400 million years old. Cathedral Cave – the largest and most popular cavern houses several Hindu shrines beneath its 100-metre-high arched ceiling and is considered an important religious landmark. During the Thaipusam festival (Jan/Feb) over one million pilgrims visit this site. Beware of the smart monkeys here.
China Town At the heart of Kuala Lumpur is the China Town that never sleeps. Deeply immersed in Oriental culture, heritage and history, Chinatown is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist spots in Malaysia. Foodies can ask for any Chinese dish from roasted duck to original clay pot dishes and bargain hunters can find anything from Chinese herbs to imitation goods. Touch up your haggling skills and you will be a shopper's dream.
Little India Try on and customize your own sari, get decorated in henna or just come for the numerous curries, naans and other dishes that make the Indian kitchen a true favourite in Malaysia. If you want to get the full Brickfields experience then go to KL City Hall to enquire about the guided tour which is free of charge and held every first and third Saturday of the month.
Fraser’s Hill Located about two hours away from the city in the state of Selangor but is definitely one of the best places to visit around KL. A former British hill station because of the cooler altitude, you'll now find a beautiful nature reserve in the Pahang Mountains, with brilliant cycling and walking trails. If you're feeling brave take a dip in the Jeriau waterfalls or stock up on locally-grown strawberries.
When to go The rainy season on the west coast of Peninsula Malaysia typically comes between April and October but often the rains don't really arrive until June or July. Even during the monsoon, the rains tend to come in sharp bursts, usually during the afternoon, with sunshine for the rest of the day. Penang, however, does get heavy rains in September and October.
The east coast monsoon, which falls between mid-November and February, is more marked, churning up the seas and making some of the island destinations inaccessible. These rains also affect the interior of Peninsula Malaysia, and the whole of Malaysian Borneo.
Visa & Customs Malaysia tourist visa is not required for citizens of United Kingdom for a stay up to 90 days. However, all travelers will need a passport valid for at least 90 days following your departure date from Malaysia. However, we strongly recommend traveling with 6 months validity on your passport at all times.
Most destinations, including Malaysia, require that you have adequate un-used pages in your passport. We recommend that you have at least two free pages in Visas section of your passport before any international travel.
