Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive in Malaysia

Welcome to Malaysia! You’ll be met at Kuala Lumpur International Airport and transferred to your luxurious boutique hotel in a quiet part of town. We’ve planned nothing for you so that you can settle in, go for a walk, or simply relax poolside.

Day 2 - Discover Kuala Lumpur

Today you’ll be whisked around Kuala Lumpur to see its highlights, old and new. See the Petronas Towers, King’s Palace, National Mosque, and other iconic sites of the city. In the afternoon, visit the Batu Caves with its 140-foot tall statue of Hindu God Lord Murugan and more than a handful of monkeys to escort you.

Day 3 - Explore historic Melaka

Head south for the day to the port city of Melaka, a World Heritage Site with more than 600 years of history to explore. Your guide will walk with you through the city and share insight into the nation’s multicultural history. There’s time to visit antique and art galleries before returning to Kuala Lumpur for the evening.

Day 4 - Bound for George Town

This morning your driver will take you to the airport for your short flight to Penang. In the afternoon, your guide will show you around some of George Town’s highlights including the Khoo Kongsi clan house, harmony street with its Anglican church, Taoist and Hindu temples, and Muslim mosque.

Day 5 - Peaceful Penang

See the beauty of Penang island with its idyllic fishing villages, rice paddies, and quiet coasts. Your morning tour will take you around the island, giving you the afternoon to relax and walk around George Town as you wish.

Day 6 - South to Pangkor Laut

The transfer to Pangkor Laut will be a few hours today as your driver takes you south and a boat ferries you across to this luxurious, exclusive resort. Your Hill Villa is set amongst the ancient rainforest but the beach is only a short stroll away.

Days 7-9 - Soak up the sun

These days are yours to relax and enjoy the amenities of the resort. Consider a luxurious spa treatment, sunset sail, a guided jungle walk, or simply sit back by the pool or on the beach. Perhaps take a moment to start thinking about your next holiday.

Day 10 - Salamat Jalan!

Today you’ll head back across the water and meet your driver for the trip to Kuala Lumpur International Airport where you can catch your flight home. Safe travels!

Kuala Lumpur
Bustling, vibrant Kuala Lumpur is home to an incredible array of old and new. Colonial architecture and modern skyscrapers, gourmet restaurants and simple street food stalls, luxurious hotels and shops, beautiful parks, mosques, and temples fill the city. The city is truly a feast for all five senses. More
The port town of Melaka (formerly spelled Malacca) has been influenced by Portuguese, Dutch, British, Chinese, Indian, and Malay settlers and rulers. The resulting mix of culture, food, and architecture makes Melaka an ideal spot to see, taste, and experience the diversity that makes Malaysia such a unique part of Asia. Although you can visit in a day from Kuala Lumpur, we think it's worth an overnight visit. More
George Town
On the island of Penang sits the UNESCO-designated cultural highlight of George Town. It's home to some of the best food in the country, street art fun for all ages to find and enjoy, Chinese and Indian temples, British colonial buildings, pleasant beaches, a hill with stunning views of the area, and delightful boutique hotels. George Town truly offers a wealth of options for every visitor. More
Formally known as Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah, the island boasts beaches, rainforest, monkeys, mangroves, and views to Thailand from an incredible hanging bridge atop Mount Mat. More
Cameron Highlands
Once the favoured hill station of British expatriates in Malaysia, the Cameron Highlands is a cool respite from the tropical heat. Tea plantations, giant rafflesia blooms, and a mossy forest that feels straight out of a story book can all be found here. More
Tioman Island
Well known to divers, Tioman is home to incredibly rich waters teeming with life, making for great snorkelling and diving. With beautiful beaches and pleasant walking trails through the jungle, it's a beautiful place to relax. Best visited March through mid-October as we don't recommend trying to reach the island during monsoon season. More
Perhentian Islands
The clear aquamarine South China Sea meets white sand beaches on the Perhentian and Redang islands. There are no roads on these islands, only foot paths and water taxis. We only recommend visiting between April and mid-October to avoid rough crossings and restaurants and resorts closed for monsoon season. More
