Kuala Lumpur has grown dramatically over the last century into a modern bustling city, whilst retaining its historical character. The multi-cultural heritage of the city is reflected in the buildings and the variety of shops and eateries found in abundance around the capital. Lose yourself in this city of contrasts, where its Colonial past jostles for attention with state-of-the-art super-structures. Visit the bustling and colourful Chinatown to sample some of the delicious delicacies on offer; Merdeka Square, the traditional heart of the city, where the city’s elite meet or The Golden Triangle, a small city in itself, where the iconic Petronas Towers dominate the skyline. Kuala Lumpur is a shopper's paradise with a huge variety of goods available, many of which are duty-free, yet there are plenty of museums, galleries and the Lake Gardens, if you fancy a change of scene.

Lined with tea plantations and strawberries, this part of Central Malaysia has a cooler climate and delightfully fresh air. In addition to visiting the plantations themselves, visitors can learn about tealeaf production in Central Malaysia.
