Your day-by-day itinerary

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, throw yourself into lively food-court culture and get a bird’s eye view from the top of the KL Tower.

Canopy Walk and Jungle Boat

Trek 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 world’s oldest tropical rainforest, and make sure you keep your eyes peeled for all the wildlife. By night, you’ll stay in a wooden bungalow in the jungle.

You’ll meet the local villagers, try your hand at the traditional art of batik, find out how fiery fish crackers are made and explore the local area. You’ll take part in village activities by day and stay in a cosy wooden cottage next door to your hosts by night.

Island Hopping Perhentian and Lang Tengah

This island hopping trip will give you two totally different takes on tropical paradise. It’s a laid-back, barefoot journey from postcard-perfect Perhentian Besar to peaceful Lang Tengah. Feel stranded on castaway beaches, snorkel through colourful coral gardens and eat fresh seafood set against fiery sunsets. It’s the height of stress-free living.

Daydreaming in Private Paradise

Everyone daydreams about their own private desert island and on tiny Gem Island, the dream can come true. A secluded slice of paradise with just one boutique resort, it’s like having tropical heaven all to yourself. Here, you can swing in a hanging chair outside your water villa, stare out to sea and feel like a true castaway. With stunning views and killer sunsets, it’s a seriously special place.

“Malaysia is packed with variety; from its cosmopolitan cities to its wild jungles. Here, I’ve snorkelled in beautiful waters and eaten my weight in creamy laksa noodles! My customers also love the ease of travelling around, hassle-free. ”
