Pearl of the Danube

You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Get some cultural insight at Fisherman's Bastion and Buda Castle. Visit Matthias Church and Dohány Street Synagogue for their historical value. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum, pick up some local products at Central Market Hall, contemplate the long history of Shoes on the Danube Bank, and boost your wellbeing at a local thermal spa.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Budapest is an approximately 19-hour flight. You'll gain 7 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Budapest due to the time zone difference. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Kuala Lumpur in December, with highs in Budapest at 5°C and lows at -1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can go by car to Prague.
