This holiday takes in the best of Malaysia from east to west. In the east you'll explore Borneo encountering its famous wildlife, beautiful natural interior and fascinating indigenous culture.
Then in the west you'll get to explore KL city and Penang Island, in both locations a variety of historical influences have left a fascinating mix of architecture and cuisine. Finally you'll spend 5 days relaxing on the shores of Langkawi in one of its best hotels; The Datai.
- Taking a river boat along the Kinabatangan river in Borneo - look out for monkeys, orangutan, and Pygmy elephants as you travel.
- Staying in stilted cabins, perhaps meeting the indigenous Abai people and exploring the wilderness at Abai Jungle Lodge.
- Sampling the food, in Kuala Lumpur and Penang where the influence of Indian, Chinese, Thai, Portuguese and even British flavours has left diverse and delicious cuisine.
- Great quality hotels and lodges throughout but you'll feel especially pampered whilst in paradise at The Datai Langkawi. A beautiful location at the edge of an ancient rainforest, overlooking a sweeping white sand bay.
