Helsinki

— 6 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.
Get some cultural insight at Turku Castle and Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova. Step off the beaten path and head to Hakaniemi Market and Kansallisgalleria. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Turku (Turku Cathedral, Gallery A, &more) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Brunberg Candy Factory Shop). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Katajanokka, get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

For where to stay, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki sightseeing planner.

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. Expect much colder temperatures when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in October; daily highs in Helsinki reach 10°C and lows reach 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sun) 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."
