Teluk Dalam, Pu­lau Redang (09 630 8888/ www.thetaaras.com). Sit­u­ated in the calm wa­ters of Teluk Dalam amid an archipelago of is­lands, this is the most lux­u­ri­ous re­sort on Pu­lau Redang.

Petronas Twin Tow­ers

Kuala Lumpur City Cen­tre, KL (03 2331 8080/www.petronast­win­tow­ers.com.my). Icons of Malaysia, the tallest twin tow­ers in the world are bea­cons of cul­ture and her­itage. Check out the dis­plays and ex­hi­bi­tions on the ground level be­fore as­cend­ing in the el­e­va­tor to the im­pres­sive sky­bridge. The views are some­what lim­ited due to the huge tow­ers on ei­ther side of the sky­bridge; it’s ac­tu­ally the view of them that’s more im­pres­sive than the view from them. Still, it’s worth a morn­ing out of any­one’s hol­i­day. Just get up early to avoid hang­ing around wait­ing for your times­lot on the bridge. Tue-Sun, 9am-9pm (closed from 1-2.30pm ev­ery Fri­day). Is­su­ing of tick­ets starts from 8.30am. Adults, RM84.80, Chil­dren, RM31.80; (MyKad hold­ers) Adults, RM26.50, Chil­dren, RM12.70.
