The wonderful Malaysian diversity is epitomised in Kuala Lumpur, an excitingly modern capital that's easy to fall in love with. Penang offers a different experience, as stretching sands are lapped by azure waters.
Kuala Lumpur's amalgamation of cultures and styles is evident across the city. An eclectic mix of architecture comprises Moorish designs and sky-piercing scrapers, as well as an onslaught of mosques, Buddhist temples and Hindu shrines. As for the food, KL takes influences from Malay, Indian and Chinese cuisines and many more to create some deliciously unique dishes. Travel north west to Penang, where natural beauty and a rich multicultural history combine to create a delightful destination.

Kuala Lumpur has an equatorial climate defined by hot year round temperatures and abundant rainfall. The Titiwangsa Mountains in the west and the mountainous Indonesian island of Sumatra to the east offer protection to the city and influence its climate. The southwest monsoon rain hits KL between September and April but rainfall is not too high throughout the season. The best time to visit KL is between June and August, when the weather is driest. Penang’s equatorial climate means high heat, high humidity and high rainfall all year round. There are two main seasons – the dry season from December to March and the wet season from April to November. However, Malaysia is affected by two monsoon seasons so wet weather is always a possibility. Most people opt to visit Penang during the dry season, when rainfall and humidity are at their lowest.
