Langkawi 3 Day(s)... Kuala Lumpur 1 Day(s)... Genting Kuala Lumpur: Kuala Lumpur is also known as the Garden City of Lights. With its colorful potpourri of races and cultures, KL, as the city is popularly known, is a kaleidoscope of fascinating sights and sounds. Immerse yourself in its abundance of attractions - exciting theme parks, world-class sporting events, dazzling cultural performances and entertaining nightlife. Langkawi: Langkawi is the largest of a multitude of islands. The island comprises of a jeweled setting of 99 islands. It is a versatile holiday destination with world-class infrastructure and facilities - a modern international airport, state-of-the-art marinas, budget hotels to luxurious resorts and a host of recreational activities. Langkawi idyllic beaches are perfect settings for a fun-filled vacation. Genting Highland - City Of Entertainment! Just 51km or about an hour scenic drive from the bustling metropolis of Kuala Lumpur is Genting Highlands Resort or popularly known as Genting - City of Entertainment. Situated at 6,000 feet above sea level, Genting has everything to offer including natural cool mountain
  2. 2. air and 24 hours of non-stop entertainment catering for the many diverse cultures and visitors from all over the world. Genting also has the distinction of having Genting Skyway - the longest cable car in Southeast Asia. At a glance Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) (http://www.raahi.com/travel-guides/kuala-lumpur/at-a- glance.html) High-rise ambitions in a colourful whirl of cultural diversity. Kuala Lumpur is an Asian tiger that roars: in almost 150 years, it has grown from nothing to a modern, bustling city. Take in its high-flying triumphs from the viewing deck of the world's tallest building, and then dive down to explore its more traditional culture in the back lanes of Chinatown. It's a modern Asian city of gleaming skyscrapers, but it retains much of the local colour that has been wiped out in other Asian boom-cities such as Singapore. It has plenty of colonial buildings in its centre, a vibrant Chinatown with street vendors and night markets, and a bustling Little India. When to Visit: KL is hot and humid almost all the time. Although there is rain through the year, March to April and September to November are the wettest months. KL's wide ethnic diversity means that celebrations of one kind or another are usually going on somewhere around the city; these can make transport more crowded than usual. Public holidays are a surprisingly good time to be around, as most locals head for the beaches and hills. In more liberal KL, Ramadan doesn't pose the same 'where to eat?' problems that affect the more devout Muslim areas on the east coast.
  3. 3. Orientation Malaysia is divided into two regions - Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia - with Kuala Lumpur in Selangor province near the west coast of the peninsula. The traditional heart of the city is Merdeka Square, easily spotted because of the 95m (312ft) flag pole - reputedly the world's tallest. KL is a relatively easy city to navigate, with major north-south thoroughfares assisting in the speedy movement of people. At peak hour, however, the city resembles most other industrialised cities in the world, and the air - already dripping with humidity - gets thick with smog. Travelling around the city on foot can be a frustrating experience. New multi-lane highways and overhead bridges divide the city with little thought to pedestrian traffic. Southeast of Merdeka Square, the banking district merges into hectic Chinatown, where travellers can find a wealth of accommodation and restaurant options. Due south of the square, past the main post office, is the historic KL train station, while further west is the 'green belt', where you'll find the Lake Gardens, National Museum and Monument and the Malaysian Parliament. Southeast of the old KL station is KL Sentral (Central Station), the new hub of Malaysia's national railway system. Puduraya bus station is on the eastern edge of Chinatown. The international airport, KLIA, is located some 75km (47mi) south of the city centre. Puduraya is between Chinatown and the Golden Triangle, KL's premier business, shopping and entertainment district. Crowded with mid-range and luxury hotels, the Golden Triangle has long since expanded from its original boundaries of Jln Imbi, Jln Raja Chulan and Jln Sultan Ismail and now stretches north to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) development anchored by the Petronas Towers. Getting Around: The public transport system within KL is speedy, comfortable and uncomplicated. The city has made significant improvements to expressways and the rail network to reduce traffic congestion. While buses and city trains move huge numbers of people, travellers will probably find most joy with the fast and frequent Light Rail (LRT) and monorail. Weather: It's hot and humid throughout Malaysia all year round, with overnight lows rarely sinking below 20°C (70°F) and maximums rising above 30°C (86°F) on most days, so whenever you go, take it easy. Rainfall is variable and falls all year round. It is rare for rain to fall all day; it usually confines itself to short-lived torrential downpours in the afternoons. The driest months tend to be June and July. Dial in code(s): City code:03 Ethnic Groups: 62% Malay, 23% Chinese, 7% Indian, 8% other Maps
  4. 4. About Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Attractions (http://www.10best.com/destinations/malaysia/kuala- lumpur/attractions/best-attractions-activities/) Over the years, many cities have become know for the signature attractions. For example, when someone mentions New York City, the Statue of Liberty is often the first image that comes to mind. The Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Gateway Arch in St. Louis are two other examples of iconic attractions unique to their respective cities. What many people don't know is what to do and see after they have experienced the city's signature attraction. Luckily, 10Best helps you make the most of the rest of your visit. National Museum is a terrific destination when you want to brush up on Kuala Lumpur history. If the whole family is making the trip, we recommend KL Bird Park located in the Lake Gardens area. Petronas Twin Towers is also a well-regarded attraction that you won't find in every other city you pass through.

If your primary desire is a place to nurse a drink and enjoy some friendly conversation, take advantage of the city's many bars, like Hard Rock Café. As the night wears on, consider catching a few sets of live music to get a feel for Kuala
  10. 10. Lumpur's local talent. Planet Hollywood is one of the best places to do that, and you can always count on an array of terrific performances. Really want to let loose? Nothing beats dancing to high-energy rhythms, and you'll find those regularly at Zouk. The music pumps, the clientele are fun, and you can practically guarantee a great time. When it comes to nightlife, there are plenty of things to do in Kuala Lumpur! Festivals & Events KL is the place to be for Malaysia’s major holidays and festivals, including Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Thaipusam. Dates for nonreligious events shift from year to year so check the exact dates of the following festivals locally. Flora Fest KL goes flower-crazy in January/February with exhibitions and the international Floral Parade. City Day KL commemorates becoming a federal territory on 1 February each year with celebrations at Tasik Perdana and Lake Titiwangsa gardens. KL International Tower Jump (www.kltowerjump.com) Adrenaline junkies descend on KL in March for the one day they can legally Base jump off the Menara KL. Malaysian Grand Prix (www.malaysiangp.com.my) Special shopping promotions accompany the annual Formula One race at Sepang International Circuit in March/April. Malaysia Fest (Colours of Malaysia) Two weeks in May – a celebration with exhibits of traditional arts and special cultural performances around town. Shopping Carnival Shopping in KL becomes even more of a bargain as prices plummet during this annual June sale. KL Festival (www.klfestival.org.my) July is a month of events showcasing Malaysian art, dance, theatre and music. National Day Join the crowds in Merdeka Sq at midnight on 31 August to celebrate the anniversary of Malaysia’s independence in 1957. There are parades and festivities the next morning – check with the MTC for this year’s venue. KL International Buskers Festival (www.malaysiabuskers.com) The streets fill with performers for nine days of musical and acrobatic fun during December Transportation
  11. 11. Local transport Taxi KL has plenty of taxis, and fares are cheap, starting at RM2 for the first kilometre, with an additional 10 sen for each 200m. From midnight to 6am there’s a surcharge of 50% on the metered fare, and extra passengers (more than two) are charged 20 sen each. Luggage placed in the boot costs an extra RM1. Even though the law mandates the use of the meter, you’ll often find taxi drivers unwilling to use it, citing KL’s traffic or the out-of-the-way location of your destination as a reason. Taxi drivers lingering outside luxury hotels are especially guilty of this behaviour. Stand your ground and, if necessary, walk off and hail another taxi. If you choose to bargain, fares around town start at RM5 and it should cost no more than RM10 to go right across the central city area. Be aware that taxis will often only stop at the numerous officially signposted taxi stands and although it is possible to wave one down, some drivers are reluctant to stop. Taxi KL has plenty of air-conditioned taxis, which queue up at designed taxi stops across the city. You can also flag down moving taxis, but drivers will only stop if there is a convenient place to pull over. Fares start at RM2 for the first two minutes, with an additional 10 sen for each 45 seconds. From midnight to 6am there’s a surcharge of 50% on the metered fare, and extra passengers (more than two) are charged 20 sen each. Luggage placed in the boot is an extra RM1 and there’s an RM12 surcharge for taxis to KLIA. Unfortunately, some drivers have a limited geographical knowledge of the city, and many are reluctant to use the meter, even though this is a legal requirement. Taxi drivers lingering outside luxury hotels are especially guilty of this behaviour, citing KL’s traffic or the out-of- the-way location of your destination as a reason for an elevated cash fare. This is baloney. If a driver demands a fixed fare, bargain hard, or walk away and find another taxi. As a guide, you can get right across the centre of town for RM5 on the meter or RM10 after bargaining. Note that KL Sentral and some large malls have a coupon system for taxis where you pay in advance. Money & costs • Money Money You’ll seldom be far from a bank/ATM. Moneychangers offer better rates than banks for changing cash and (at times) travellers cheques; usually open later hours and on weekends and found in shopping malls.
  12. 12. Moneychangers and banks are found on every other corner in KL. Rates are fairly consistent, though private moneychangers sometimes offer slightly better rates for cash than banks. Most banks and shopping malls provide international ATMs (typically on the ground floor or basement level). Useful places to change money include the following: Maybank Forex Counter (Jln Hang Lekir, Chinatown; 10am-6pm) RHB Bank (Ground fl, Suria KLCC; 10am-7pm) Health & safety Dangers & annoyances KL is generally very safe, but it pays to watch for pickpockets on crowded public transport. One ongoing irritation in KL is the state of the pavements. The temporary covers thrown over drains can give way suddenly, dumping you in the drink or worse, so walk around them. Flooding can also a be problem, particularly during the monsoon – carry an umbrella and be prepared to roll up your trousers to wade through giant puddles. While you're there Medical services Pharmacies are all over town; most common is Guardian, in most shopping malls. Dental Pro (2287 3333; www.dentalpro.org; 8 Lengkok Abdullah, Bangsar Utama; 10am-6pm Mon-Sat) Hospital Kuala Lumpur (2615 5555; www.hkl.gov.my; Jln Pahang) Tung Shin Hospital (2072 1655; www.tungshinhospital.com.my; 102 Jln Pudu) Twin Towers Medical Centre KLCC (2382 3500; www.ttmcklcc.com.my; Level 4, Suria KLCC, Jln Ampang; 8.30am-6pm Mon-Sat) Medical services Pharmacy chains Watsons and Guardian have branches all over KL selling toiletries, healthcare products, prescription medicines and, curiously, ladies’ underwear and men’s boxers. Opticians are found in most shopping centres. KL is an increasingly popular destination for health tourism, from cosmetic surgery to dental veneers. Medical centres and dentists are found in all the big malls and a private consultation will cost around RM35.
