Just because Singaporean and Malaysian leaders are having a right old go at each other over Wikileaks (bah, we think it’s a storm in a teh-o glass actually), doesn’t mean you too should give our northern neighbors the short shrift. Experience the sights and all the new haunts of buzzy Kuala Lumpur and while you’re there, why not slum it at the Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur. Why, you ask? Through Feb 28, you can indulge in (their words) “a weekend of luxurious comforts” with weekend rates going at RM 348++ ($145) per night. With complimentary buffet breakfast at the Lemon Garden Cafe, a late check out at 4pm and free broadband internet access, this one’s hard to resist.
