A multi-centre trip to Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi means visiting a modern Asian city and an array of over 100 secluded islands in one tour.
Your visit will start with the leg spent in Kuala Lumpur, the beating heart of Malaysia. It’s large city known for its modern sky scrapers and variety of attractions. A stay in the centre is far more than just an opportunity to visit the Petronas Towers, though taking in the view from the sky bridge is a must.
It is a place that takes notes from around the world, from the Chinese Sin Sze Si Ya Temple, to the colonial-looking KL Railway Station, the Kampung Baru village that is oozing with genuine Malay charm.
Like any good city, it is home to many star attractions like its Central Market, Istana Negara royal palace, and Batu Caves temples, KL Bird Park and Aquaria KLCC; and plenty of shops to visit at the Pavilion KL mall.
Once your time in the Malaysian capital is up it’s time to unwind and relax in Langkawi, a collection of small islands off the coast. Time spent hopping from Island to Island and settling down on its lush beaches and will give you a real sense of space and freedom.
During your stay there will be a chance to take boat trips to beaches, mangroves, and Pulau Payar Marine Park to snorkel over coral gardens. Also recommended is a ride on the Langkawi Cable Car Ride to Langkawi Sky Bridge, a curving and soaring walkway with spectacular views.
Sampling a variety of Malay delicacies is a must while in Langkawi. It has the benefit from the island’s abundance of fresh seafood and vegetables as well as unique herbs and spices. res
There are plenty of family-owned restaurants, particularly in the beach town of Pantai Cenang, which give you an opportunity to try a varied selection of food during buffet-style lunches from 11:00 onwards. After grabbing your plate of steamed rice, you can choose from 20 to 50 types of fish, vegetables, and chicken dishes. From the quintessential nasi lemak to sour-spicy assam pedas, you are certain to be treated to a dish full of flavour.
