British Airways is dedicated to getting you to your destination in style. Incredibly comfortable cabins, gorgeous in-flight cuisine and superlative levels of customer service all go a long way to cementing BA’s place among the world’s premier airlines. To sweeten the deal even more for the aspiring traveller, British Airways has added a selection of new direct routes to make even the most far flung reaches accessible from the UK.

Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is the largest city in Malaysia and serves as the nation’s capital. Although at first the city may seem to be an impregnable maze of neighbourhoods, it provides an extremely rewarding venture for those who scratch below the surface. To get a sense of the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur it’s definitely worth checking out the city centre which also incorporates the old town. This part of town evokes a real sense of traditional Malaysia with narrow streets lined with shops selling all kinds of trinkets from South East Asia.

The mighty Petronas Twin Towers dominate the Kuala Lumpur skyline.

The Thean Hou Temple should also be high on the to do list of anybody visiting the city. This wonderfully ornate temple is dedicated to the heavenly mother Thean Hou and there is a statue dedicated to her in the impressive main hall. From the upper rooms of the temple you are treated to great vistas of the city and outside you will find a range of charming shops and restaurants.

It’s not just tradition that is celebrated in Kuala Lumpur, modern wonders such as the Petronas Twin Towers dominate the skyline. The Twin Towers were at one time the tallest buildings in the world and the views from the top are absolutely incredible to behold.

Starting from May 2015, British Airways will fly to Kuala Lumpur from Heathrow meaning you can arrive at this fantastic city in just under 13 hours.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic, while being a relatively small nation, is one of the most diverse destinations in the Caribbean. From the luxurious beaches of Punta Cana to the street carnivals of Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic has something for everyone.

The resorts found in Punta Cana deliver some of the best all-inclusive packages in the business and make it their priority to give you the holiday of your dreams.

During your trip you can also visit the enriching city of Santo Domingo. This was the earliest city settled by Europeans in all of the Americas and as such boasts an incredible array of history.
