Luxury Malaysia & Borneo
Taking up a big chunk of the spectacular coastline of Southeast Asia, Malaysia could easily be seen as simply a beach destination. Home to the tallest buildings in the world until 2004, Kuala Lumpur is also one of the continent's most intoxicating cities.
The Shangri-La Hotel is an excellent base to explore the city, but the real winner here is the 5-Star Gaya Island Resort. Only accessible by boat and surrounded by a marine national park, you'll be able to hear both the waves crashing and the echoes of the dense jungle behind the resort.
Things to Do
- The Petronas Twin Towers are just as impressive from below as they are from above. 88-storeys high and connected by a 58m long bridge, we'd recommend viewing them at night to see the lights stretch into the dark sky.
- Perdana Botanical Garden shows the more relaxed side of Kuala Lumpur. Spread over a large area with a wide variety of plant life, it's a gentle change of pace.
- Conveniently close to the Gaya Resort is the Marine Ecology Research Centre. Focused on the preservation of the local coral reefs and sea life, you can learn all about the incredible work they've been doing since opening in 2007.
