Its numerous open air markets offer your senses a kaleidoscope of colours, sights and sounds, not to mention bargains. Just about anything that you may want to buy is more than likely available in Kuala Lumpur. Its world renowned festivals including the massive Chinese New Year celebrations add to the city’s allure and charm.

Cheap hotels in Kuala Lumpur are fairly scarce with the rainy season falling around the same time as the New Year Festival. The rest of the year the climate remains constant at around 30 degrees Celsius and tourists travel here is almost continuous.

From London, you can take a train to Heathrow Airport in around 50 to 60 minutes. The Heathrow Express is the fastest method of travel, taking about 15 minutes from London Paddington station. You can also take a taxi to Heathrow Airport with a travel time of about one hour.

Interested in Kuala Lumpur? Consider Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.
