Made up of 63 islands, Singapore is a thriving country with amazing food, wonderful shopping, lush parks, excellent nightlife and a fascinating blend of cultures.
An intriguing blend of Malay, Indian, Chinese and Portuguese cultures, Melaka has a wealth of interesting architecture, distinctive food and cultural heritage.
Malaysian food has been heavily influenced by centuries of migration and trade. Chinese, India, Portuguese, Dutch and the native Malay - Peranakan. No where is that more evident than in Kuala Lumpur.
Located on a picturesque lake just outside of Kuala Kangsar, a stay in the traditional home of some long-time Intrepid friends offers a truly memorable cultural experience.
Penang - Malaysia's prized island - has a beautiful coastline, wonderful cuisine and its colonial heritage is still present in amongst the modern skyscrapers that tower over Georgetown.
