Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 7 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Lucerne. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in September: high temperatures in Lucerne hover around 22°C and lows are around 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Tue) early enough to drive to St. Moritz.
