Malacca: Warm Welcome on Wheels

Days 1-3

Malacca: Warm Welcome on Wheels

Malacca is the melting pot of Malaysia, a mosaic of many different cultures. Here, crumbling European colonial buildings, Indian bazaars, Chinese markets and modern chic all sit side by side. This is the first stop of your family holiday, and you’ll stay in the heart of Malacca’s Chinatown, peppered with paper lanterns. We will organise an eco cycling trip for you, where you’ll learn about the tropical plantations and pedal through local villages (child seats are available).

Twin Towers & Chopsticks

Days 3-5

Twin Towers & Chopsticks

Kuala Lumpur is a city of exciting extremes, where space-age skyscrapers nudge up against cluttered Chinese markets and timeless Indian. You’ll explore Kuala Lumpur independently, watching East bump into West with your own eyes. You can stare up at the famous Petronas Towers and throw yourself into lively food-court culture which is sure to offer cuisine that the whole family will enjoy!

Canopy Walk and Jungle Boat

Days 5-8

Canopy Walk and Jungle Boat

Here there are lots of adventure-packed activities to keep the kids entertained.  You’ll walk through the treetops, take a boat trip past jungle-flanked riverbanks and try a wildlife-spotting night safari during this relaxed adventure through Malaysia’s most famous national park. You’ll explore the rainforest from above, following a suspended walkway and looking for wildlife between the branches. By night, you’ll stay in a wooden bungalow in the jungle.

Sophia with batik painting, Malaysia

Days 8-10

Creative Kampung Life

Experience local life in this creative kampung, tucked away on a small riverbank near Kota Bharu. You’ll meet the local villagers, you can all try your hand at the traditional art of batik, and there’s plenty of space around here where the kids can run around and let off some steam! You’ll take part in village activities by day and stay in a cosy wooden cottage next door to your hosts by night.

Perhentian Island Escape

Days 10-14

Perhentian Island Escape

Today you’ll all take a boat transfer from Kuala Besut to the tropical Perhentian Islands. The first thing you’ll see when you hop off the boat from Kuala Besut onto the island’s warm white sands, is an idyllic palm-lined beach, a crystal clear turquoise sea and small wooden cabins. This is a family-friendly island, and is the perfect place to end your Malaysia family adventure!
