Best of Thailand & Malaysia SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Loud, bright, chaotic and delightful, Bangkok is a city of modern excesses intermingled with simple traditions, all wrapped up in the famous smiles of the locals.
With some of the most impressive ruins in Thailand, Sukhothai is a friendly town with a wealth of fabulous sights to see.
Our fascinating homestay is hosted by some long-time Intrepid friends in a small Thai village. Enjoy a delicious Khantohk dinner while being entertained by traditional Thai music and dance.
The most vibrant city in northern Thailand, Chiang Mai has many famous temples and an interesting old city area. This 'Rose of the North' is also known for its beauty and the friendliness of the local people.
Bangkok is more than just colourful city streets, khlongs (canals) weave their way through suburbs, forest parks green up the city and Buddhist temples help bring serenity.
Khao Sok National Park is simply breathtaking. Dense rainforests hide a myriad of exotic animals and plants, and walking trails revel awesome waterfalls, lakes and caves.
Get under the skin of the culture and experience the life of a local on a village homestay in Thailand.
With powdery white-sand beaches, limestone karsts jutting out of cerulean waters and jaw-dropping scenery both in and out of the water, Krabi is a slice of paradise.
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.
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.
An intriguing blend of Malay, Indian, Chinese and Portuguese cultures, Melaka has a wealth of interesting architecture, distinctive food and cultural heritage.
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.
