Kuala Lumpur

The bright lights of KL are another must on any backpacking circuit of Southeast Asia. An injection of big-city life comes with the neon haze of Bukit Bintang and its walking markets, which brim with knock-off Ray Bans and designer trinkets (it’s a real Rolex, honest!). The dual spires of the Petronas Towers command the horizon overhead, and there’s Hindu mysticism on offer at the nearby Batu Caves. Try to score yourself a bed in Reggae Mansion. With a cinema and a rooftop bar, it’s hailed by some as the most deluxe poshtel going! Wander a few hours outside of the city and find the hidden river banks of Kampung Kuantan filled with twinkling fireflies.
