Itinerary

A finely woven tapestry of Indian, Chinese and ethnic Malay cultures gives Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur its distinct identity, as well as its delicious array of cuisines - just follow the spicy aromas to the night market and dive straight in.
Climb into the backseat of a trishaw to explore the colonial streets of historic Melaka. Afterwards, take some time to wander about, absorbing Melaka’s wonderful atmosphere.
Venture into ancient rainforest in Malaysia's Taman Negara National Park, taking it all in from a canopy walk suspended high in the treetops. Brave river rapids in a longtail boat before returning to the guesthouse for a home-cooked Malay meal.
Travel east towards the coastline, arriving in Kuala Terengganu. While here, trawl the local market for traditional handicrafts and batik sarongs or visit the stunning waterside mosques.
Swim in sparkling turquoise waters, snorkel among unspoilt reefs or swing in a hammock while on some of the most beautiful islands on the planet - Malaysia's Perhentian Islands.
Discover the secrets of local silversmiths, watch giant kites being flown or learn the art of batik. Take time to sample the delicious regional delicacies such as nasi ulam and keropok losong.
Stay with Intrepid's long-time friends in their traditional home on the shores of a picturesque lake. Wake to the sound of gibbon calls, walk through peaceful villages or swim in nearby waterfalls.
Enjoy a city tour in Kuala Lumpur. At night, why not head down to Jalan Petaling to encounter its hotchpotch of hawkers and street merchants.
