What our specialists say...

Malaysia is one of the region's most culturally diverse countries, and its cuisine very much reflects that. This itinerary takes advantage of the superb food offered throughout the country, whether that be Indian, Malay, Chinese or Thai. Starting in the historical town of Malacca you will travel north, calling in at Kuala Lumpur and Penang, before relaxing on the beach at the end of the trip. This itinerary is one for the foodies - in Malaysia the locals never ask how you are, and instead ask "have you eaten!"

We recommend this trip for:

  • Malacca
  • Kuala Lumpur
  • Penang
  • Langkawi
