The travel guide presents popular overseas travel destinations that are particularly worthwhile for Australians in winter.

If you are planning a trip to Kuala Lumpur, one of the biggest attractions is the world’s tallest twin towers, the Petronas Twin Towers. They are the city’s most famous landmark.

The nearby Art Deco-style Central Market is a great place to buy souvenirs and handicrafts, and the KL Forest Eco Park is the only remaining piece of tropical rainforest in the city.

The city also has numerous street markets, with Jalan Alor being the most popular street for roadside dining.

However, there are stalls all over the city, from Petaling Street in Chinatown to the traditional, tourist-free enclave of Kampung Baru.
