Explore Malaysia’s fusion of breathtaking natural beauty and cultural splendours
Malaysia conjures up images of ancient jungle, tropical beaches and verdant hill stations. This fun-filled family holiday serves up all of these tantalising ingredients with a generous side helping of fascinating wildlife, including endangered turtles and dazzling fireflies. Add a dash of colonial heritage and mix in a cultural blend of Indian, Malay and Chinese influences. Finally, enjoy an insight into local customs on a village homestay and see the symbol of modern-day Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur’s iconic Petronas towers, for a delicious taste of exotic South-East Asia.
Family - Flavour of Malaysia SummaryAdd to Shortlist
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.
The quiet hamlet of Kampung Kuantan is home to one of the largest firefly colonies in the world. Located on the outskirts of KL, the fascinating Batu Caves are a series of passages and chambers, each with their own special features - including stalagmites, stalactites and curtain columns.
The rural village of Kampung Pelegong offers a wonderful opportunity to meet the locals and witness traditional activities such as freshwater fish rearing, bread making and handicrafts.
Reportedly the world's oldest tropical rainforest, stunning Taman Negara National Park is rich in plant, bird and wildlife, has extensive jungle hiking trails and plenty of river activities.
With rolling green hills covered in farms and tea plantations, the Cameron Highlands has a British Colonial feel and is a cooler change to the humid lowlands.
A pleasant seaside town on Malaysia's west coast, Lumut has lovely white-sand beaches and a quiet rustic charm.
Known for its breathtaking lake gardens, Taiping retains it historic legacy with a wide array of colonial architecture to explore.
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.
