0:01 Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur (called simply KL by locals) is the federal capital and the largest city in Malaysia.
Literally meaning "muddy river confluence" in Malay, Kuala Lumpur has grown from a small sleepy Chinese tin-mining village to a bustling metropolis of 7 million (city-proper population- 1.8 million) in just 150 years. A cultural melting pot with some of the world's cheapest 5-star hotels, great shopping, even better food and some of nature's wonders in just an hour away, this dynamic city has much to offer for every visitor.
Brinchang (also Berincang) is a town and hill resort located at an altitude of 1,540 metres (5,050 ft) in Cameron Highlands in the state of Pahang, Malaysia. It is the second tourist town in Pahang after Tanah Rata.

The world's first orang hutan conservation and rehabilitation centre, Orang Utan Island at Bukit Merah Laketown Resort was set up as an orang utan sanctuary to educate, research on and better understand this protected species.
Guests get a chance to observe these primates' behaviour up close and personal, as they are taken through a 100-metre steel-cage tunnel. The island can be reached via a 10-minute (leaving every half-hour) boat ride from the main jetty at Marina Village.
4:00 George Town, Penang
George Town, the capital city of the Malaysian state of Penang, is located at the northeastern tip of Penang Island. It is Malaysia's second largest city, with 708,127 inhabitants as of 2010, while Greater Penang is the nation's second most populous conurbation with an estimated population of 2.5 million. The historical core of George Town has been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.
Established as an entrepôt by Francis Light of the British East India Company in 1786, George Town was the first British settlement in Southeast Asia. Together with Singapore and Malacca, George Town formed part of the Straits Settlements, which became a British crown colony in 1867. It was subjugated by Japan during World War II, before being recaptured by the British at war's end. Shortly before Malaya attained independence from the British in 1957, George Town was declared a city by Queen Elizabeth II, making it the first city in the country's modern history.
