Classic Malaysia Itinerary
Day 1 Singapore
Discover sultry Singapore, a city that merges towering megamalls and skyscrapers with emerald green parks and vibrant colonial history. Arrive early to take in the fragrant spices of little India, get a whiff of incense in Chinatown or escape the heat by ducking into an air-condtioned oasis for a shopping extravaganza on Orchard Rd.

Explore the cosmopolitan capital of Malaysia, a mix of Chinese, Indian and Malay cultures. Perhaps soak up the view from atop the Menara Kuala Lumpur before being treated to a cultural performance and buffet dinner.

Days 8-10 Penang - Pulau Langkawi
With miles of white, sandy beaches, lush tropical rainforest and plenty of sleepy traditional Malay villages, Pulau Langkawi is the perfect place to get away from it all. Swim with shoals of colourful fish in the Pulau Payar Marine Park, indulge in a barbecue seafood dinner and take a cable car ride to enjoy spectacular views over this tropical haven. Be sure to spend some time channelling holiday vibes while kicking back on a soft, sandy beach.
