Malaysia Holidays

How ever you define a fulfilling holiday, Peninsula Malaysia has all the necessary ingredients - pristine beaches and breathtaking islands, a rich tapestry of cultures and history, well-preserved heritage treasures and world-class modern facilities, diverse flora and fauna, shopping hotspots and mouthwatering cuisine.

The dynamic capital, Kuala Lumpur, is a fitting gateway to Malaysia. One of Asia’s most vibrant cities, it’s a melting pot of cultures brimming with diverse entertainment options, exciting attractions and remnants of the past jostling for space amongst the towering skyscrapers of more recent decades.

Mix and match KL with one, or more, of Malaysia’s abundant beach resorts where sparkling emerald waters are fringed by powder-fine sands. On the west coast is popular Penang, the striking archipelago of Langkawi and the secluded sanctuary of Pangkor Laut, while the east coast hosts charming Kuala Terengganu, laid-back Kuantan, beautiful Tioman Island and enchanting Redang.

Open your eyes to more of Malaysia through our short tour experiences. Options include the picturesque colonial port of Malacca, the mesmerising panoramas of the Cameron Highlands, the harmonious hideaway of Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat or eco adventures in Taman Negara, one of the world’s oldest rainforests.

And then there’s the food. The influence of various cultures has resulted in a symphony of flavours to provide a dazzling gastronomic experience. From roadside stalls where the appetising aroma of satays, noodle and rice dishes is difficult to ignore, to sophisticated restaurants with dishes from around the world, it’s easy to see why everything in Malaysia revolves around food.

Malaysia's location and the excellent flight links also mean that you can easily combine Malaysia with a neighbouring Asian country or with a stopover in the Middle East for a taste of Arabia.
