What our specialists say...

As a first time visitor to Malaysia or indeed Southeast Asia, this is a wonderful way to get an insight into the many different cultures and sights in a short space of time. The city of Malacca was central in the old spice trade and Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese and English colonial influence can be found all around. The lively city of KL showcases some of Southeast Asia's best food and shopping, as well as some main sights such as the KL Tower and Twin Towers. Pangkor Laut is the perfect retreat at the end of the trip, and a great place to unwind.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Kuala Lumpur
  • Malacca
  • Kuala Lumpur
  • Pangkor Laut
