Day-to-Day Itinerary : Eastern Malaysia Explorer

Day 1  Depart The UK

Depart the UK on an overnight flight to Kuala Lumpur

Days 2 - 4  Kuala Lumpur    Explore the contrasts of the city

During your stay in Kuala Lumpur you'll join your guide to explore the local markets, learn about the varied architecture and taste the famously delicious cuisine. There will be plenty of time to relax to and enjoy the facilities and ambience of your colonial style hotel.  

Days 5 & 6 Cameron Highlands     tea in a cooler climate 

From Kuala Lumpur you'll travel into the hills with your guide to explore the Cameron Highland region; its cooler climate making it a popular retreat for the British in the colonial era.  You'll have time to visit a tea factory and learn about the tea-making process, to explore the local organic strawberry farms and perhaps to take one of the hiking trails. 

Days 7 & 8 Taman Negara   A tropical rainforest adventure  

It's around a 3-hour drive from The Cameron Highlands to Taman Negara Rainforest, a sprawling jungle wilderness that is home to elephants, tigers, rhinos and leopards. Sightings of the big mammals are rare but you’ll definitely come across monkeys, lizards, birds and an array of plantlife. 

On arrival at the park you'll travel upriver by boat to your resort, followed by an evening jungle walk with a ranger.  The next day you'll explore in more depth: canopy trails are a popular way to experience Taman Negara as they offer a great way to see wildlife and flora such as Rafflesia (the world’s largest flower) with ease. The popularity of these trails means they can be busy at certain times so we will also arrange a guided treks or longtail river boat cruise to take you deeper into the jungle, away from the beaten track.

Days 9-11 Tanjong Jara    Relax at a stylish beach hotel

Travel by road with your guide from Taman Negara to Tanjong Jara on the east coast.  After a week exploring the city, hills and jungle it's time for a bit of R&R in an upmarket resort.

Tanjong Jara had the best of both worlds: luxurious surroundings by the beach with the option to explore as well.  If the mood takes you, the resort can arrange waterfall treks and cycle tours to nearby towns where you can get a taste of authentic Malay life. 

Day 12-15 The Perhentian Islands   tropical island experience

Venture further up the east coast and off the mainland to the beautiful Perhentian Islands for a 4 night stay on Perhentian Besar. The serene tropical islands offer excellent snorkelling and a relaxed place to swim and explore. A fantastic place to spend the last few days of your holiday.

Day 16 Fly Home

Today you transfer to Kota Bharu for your flight home.
