Malaysian twin centre that is pretty close to perfect
Oooh what a twin centre, some might say this is pretty close to perfect! A popular choice for the discerning traveller; combine the bustling capital of Kuala Lumpur with the idyllic beaches of one of the islands of Langkawi.
Kuala Lumpur (or KL as called by the locals) is the capital and largest city in Malaysia. It has grown from a small sleepy Chinese tin-mining village to a bustling metropolis of 7 million in just 150 years. A cultural melting pot with some of the world’s cheapest 5-star hotels, great shopping, even better food and some of nature’s wonders in just an hour away, this dynamic city has much to offer for every visitor.Kuala Lumpur has a year-round tropical rainforest climate, which is warm and sunny, along with abundant rainfall. It can even rain daily during the northeast monsoon season from October to March.
KL is know for its eating and shopping, which in its 66 air conditioned shopping malls can be a welcome break from the humidity. Must-sees include the Petronas Towers and a visit to China Town should also be high on your agenda.
Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast. Home to fine, powdery beaches, it’s a perfect place to kick back and relax after the hustle and bustle of KL. If you fancy something a little more adventurous, then it has fantastic diving, water sports, trekking in the rainforest, wildlife watching, cable cars over the forest, rice fields, and waterfalls. It even has Geopark status by UNESCO. There really is something for everyone in this tropical island.
