Helsinki

— 4 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Kids will enjoy Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Temppeliaukio Church, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Helsinki is an approximately 16-hour flight. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in December, expect Helsinki to be much colder, temps between 3°C and -3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) to allow time to fly back home.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
