Flights from Kuala Lumpur will take off from Kuala lumpur International Airport at 10.40 pm and land at Cochin International Airport at 12.30 am the following day. The return flight will leave India at 1 am and get to the capital of Malaysia the same morning at 7.50 am. Flight duration is about four hours 20 minutes. Kuala Lumpur is two and a half hours ahead of Kochi.

It is also one of the major tourist destinations in the country, a cosmopolitan hot pot of cultures – from Arab, Chinese and Japanese to Portugese and Dutch. The best season to visit is from August to February.
