New York John F Kennedy International (JFK) is located in Queens. You can reach JFK using the Belt Parkway or the Van Wyck Expressway. Flight times are usually around 19-and-a-half hours nonstop from JFK to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (klia) (KUL). At KUL, you can take a chartered bus, hire a taxi, rent a car or take the KLIA Ekspres train. Kuala Lumpur is reached using MEX/E20 or Route 26 and the North/South Expressway.
Kuala Lumpur has a vibrant mix of cultural landmarks, including the Petronas Twin Towers, and entertainment options, like the Pavilion Mall. View artifacts at the Islamic Arts Museum or take a walk in the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park or the Perdana Botanical Garden. If you love food, check out Jalan Alor, a stretch of local stalls. Petaling Jaya is just around six miles south of Kuala Lumpur, and there you can take in art at the Shalini Ganendra Fine Art exhibition space and shop at the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall.
Temperatures in Kuala Lumpur are relatively stable because of its proximity to the equator, with a daytime average of 96 degrees and a night average of 65 degrees. Pack for rain if you're going during its rainy periods, which are February to May and September to November. A popular accommodation spot for travelers is in and around the city's center.
