DAYS 1-3 | Kuala Lumpur
There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that after you have jetted into Kuala Lumpur on your long-haul flight, you’ll be whisked away by a waiting chauffeur. Your destination is Villa Samadhi, a super sensual little boutique hotel in the leafy embassy district. From here, you can set out to explore thronging KL. Whilst it is the Petronas Towers that dominate the skyline, at ground level you experience the the juxtaposition of the old Malay and colonial era buildings being dwarfed by modern skyscrapers. A walk through Chinatown, with its smells and colours, will ignite your senses and even if retail therapy is not your thing, just seeing the massive KLCC mall is an experience. The Batu caves outside town are an extraordinary sight but you’ll need your walking shoes on to climb the 272 steps.
