This holiday is an excellent way to experience the highlights of Malaysia, largely away from the crowds. You’ll explore wildlife in remote Ulu Muda Forest Reserve, a wonderful eco-park that few tourists visit and you’ll stay at a charming homestay in a traditional village near Kota Bharu. There is also time to explore cosmopolitan Kuala Lumpur and bustling Georgetown (Penang) whilst trying some tasty snacks, discovering quirky architecture and staying in high quality hotels. Last but not least you’ll spend 5 days at a lovely beach resort on the east coast where the weather is usually fantastic from April to October - making this a great holiday in the Easter or summer school holidays.
- Tasting exotic fruits, local snacks and delicious Dim Sum on city safaris in Kuala Lumpur and Penang
- Passing fishermen throwing their nets and monkeys picking coconuts as you bike around the kampung (village) at Pasir Belanda
- Venturing deep into Ulu Muda Forest Reserve by boat to spot rare birds and animals
- Splashing in the crystal clear waters off the coast at Tanjong Jara
