What's included in this trip
Classic Malaysia & Thailand 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.
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.
An intriguing blend of Malay, Indian, Chinese and Portuguese cultures, Melaka has a wealth of interesting architecture, distinctive food and cultural heritage.
The largest island in the Langkawi archipelago, Pulau Langkawi is an island paradise with white, sandy beaches, pristine jungle and traditional rural areas.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Famed as the location of the Bridge on the River Kwai, Kanchanaburi is a beautiful town surrounded by verdant jungle, waterfalls and rivers.
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.
