Malaysia holidays 2024 & 2025

Waterfront houses, Malacca

Once central to the spice trade route, Malaysia absorbed influences from Chinese, Indian and Muslim merchants to create a rich culture and culinary heritage. Our specialists have sampled the delicacies of Penang’s night market, hiked through national parks and sought out traditional ways of life along the east coast. Using this detailed knowledge of the country, we can create a tailor-made Malaysia holiday to suit your interests.

The UNESCO-protected cities of George Town and Malacca are strewn with Javanese mosques, Chinese prayer halls and Edwardian Baroque architecture. The capital, Kuala Lumpur, is where the old world meets a vibrant, modern society and glittering skyscrapers share space with seasoned markets. Despite Malaysia’s development, great swathes of primary rainforest remain intact, as well as pristine beaches and unsullied coral reefs. Along the coast you find traditional kampung villages, lively resorts and islands offering secluded beachside retreats.
