Suggestions for a trip to Malaysia in August

Trip finder


I might have left it too late for this year but I would like to go to Malaysia. I could go, this year, anytime from now until 8th September 2011. I enjoy looking around historical sights, markets, etc, as well as lazing on a beach for a few days. I will be travelling alone. Any suggestions?

Dear Helen,

Thank you for contacting Audley regarding your possible trip to Malaysia later this year.

With regards to your enquiry, we offer both a small group tour to Malaysia, or the option to tailor-make your own trip from a blank canvass.

This year's group tour, which departs on September 11th, is entitled "Historical Trails Through Singapore and Malaysia" and it incorporates the contrasting elements of the modern and bustling cities of Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, with the Malaysia's amazing colonial history. You will have the chance to visit the UNESCO sights in Malacca and Penang and take in the dramatic scenery of the Cameron Highlands. There is also an option of extending the trip with some relaxing beach time on the beautiful island of Langkawi.

You will stay in an eclectic mix of accommodation from Chinese and Malay town houses to a colonial retreat and idyllic beach resort.

Our group tours are also ideal for those travelling alone as you would be touring with a small number of other like minded adventurers.

However, I did notice that you said you were only able to travel up until the 8th of September. This would be a little early for the group tour, but alternatively, we could tailor a very similar trip to your specific needs and requirements. For example, you would have private transfers and high quality guides throughout to provide you with all the information and knowledge you need and make sure you have a hassle free experience whilst exploring this fantastic part of the world.

I hope this has provided you with some ideas and please don't hesitate to contact me directly on 01993 838131 if you would like to discuss anything further. You can also download our new Southeast Asia brochure, or just the section which covers Malaysia, if you visit our brochures page. You can also request a free pysical copy if you like.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.
