Itinerary

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.
Travel to Melaka, a former colonial outpost that retains a distinctive old-world air. Absorb its character and unearth ancient history on a trishaw ride through its narrow winding streets.
Explore the cosmopolitan capital of Malaysia, a mix of Chinese, Indian and Malay cultures. See some of the city’s most impressive architecture on a half-day tour before enjoying a delicious dinner at the Old China Cafe.
From its elaborate Indian temples to its Chinese shophouses and statuesque Islamic mosques, Penang is packed with cross-cultural historic attractions. Take a drive out to Kek Lok Si, the largest Buddhist temple in South-East Asia and discover local culinary secrets at a cooking class.
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.
