Classic Malaysia & Thailand Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Kuala Lumpur

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.

Day 2 Cameron Highlands

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.

Days 3-4 Melaka

An intriguing blend of Malay, Indian, Chinese and Portuguese cultures, Melaka has a wealth of interesting architecture, distinctive food and cultural heritage.

Days 5-6 Pulau Langkawi

The largest island in the Langkawi archipelago, Pulau Langkawi is an island paradise with white, sandy beaches, pristine jungle and traditional rural areas.

Day 7 Penang

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.

Days 8-9 Bangkok

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.

Days 10-11 Chiang Mai

Awash with stunning temples, fabulous markets and a lively city centre, charming Chiang Mai is rich in culture and the gateway to the northern hilltribes.

Day 12 H'mong Lodge

Originally from mountainous areas of southern China, the H'mong people are made up of eighteen clans. Witness their colourful culture on a fascinating lodge stay.

With some of the most impressive ruins in Thailand, Sukhothai is a friendly town with a wealth of fabulous sights to see.
