The 88-storey building is the world's tallest twin structures. Located in the heart of the capital city, the crown of the Kuala Lumpur contains a complex of office buildings, conference halls, a sprawling park and an upmarket shopping complex.

Inspired by the geometric shape found in Islamic architecture, this mega-structure was designed by Argentinian- American architect Cesar Pelli. Stretching out to one side is the spacious and beautifully landscaped KLCC Park. Other attractions at KLCC are Suria Shopping Complex, Petronas Philharmonic Hall, Petrosains Science Centre, Petronas Art Gallery and Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, where The Aquaria Oceanarium is situated.

The city of Malacca famous with its history. The Portuguese colonised Malacca from 1511 to 1641. The first thing they did was build a fort overlooking the river, calling it A'Famosa. A seven-month attack by the Dutch just about destroyed the entire fortress, leaving only the entrance fa├žade and the structure of a church at the top of the hill. The Dutch then built The Stadthuys in 1650 as the official residence of the Dutch Governor and his officers, it is a fine example of Dutch architecture of that period. It is believed to be the oldest Dutch building in the East. Then came Chinese leaded by one of the great Chinese explorer, Admiral Cheng Ho. They slowly adopted Malay culture and now they are known as the Baba and Nyonya. Today, they have become the main uniqueness of culture in Malacca. Other attractions are Jonker walk, kampung mulu's mosque, portuguese square, St. John Fort, St Peter church etc.

3. Climb the Mount Kinabalu
