Day-to-Day Itinerary : Classic Family Malaysia and Singapore

Day 1 Depart the UK

Depart the UK on your overnight flight to Kuala Lumpur.

Days 2-4 Kuala Lumpur

On arrival in Kuala Lumpur your guide will meet you and accompany you on the private transfer to your hotel. Your accommodation will be in a 2 bedroom apartment in a hotel in the heart of the city.  Spend your first evening relaxing and recovering from the flight.

During your stay in "KL" your guide will introduce you to Malaysia with a walking safari through the capital. With interactive elements throughout, this tour is ideal for getting all ages engaged in this unique, contrasting city. You’ll visit the vibrant morning markets where the locals bargain for their daily food as your guide explains the colourful spices, weird and wonderful fruits and tasty snacks. You’ll call in at a typical coffee house to sample curry laksa before boarding public transport towards the old part of the city – rich in interesting architecture. Wander among the garland makers near the Indian mosque and try traditional sweet tea and Indian snacks.

During your time in KL you’ll also have time to visit the iconic Petronas Towers and to try your hand at cooking some popular festival dishes!

Days 5-7 Penang

It only takes an hour to fly from KL to Penang but, what with check in times and getting to and from the airport at either end, it's not necessarily quicker than travelling by road.  Add in some interesting stops along the way and the road option we've chosen here is more fun too!

You’ll visit a small museum dedicated to the history of indigenous people and call in to the Royal town of Kuala Kangsar where the Sultan of Perak resides, before visiting the only Orangutan research facility in Peninsular Malaysia. A short boat ride will take you to see the endangered species roaming free.

On arrival in Penang you’ll check into a family suite at a boutique hotel in Georgetown. We recommend staying in Georgetown as it's the hub of Penang's culture with a mix of colonial and indigenous architecture, varied street food and a thriving art scene. Your itinerary can be changed to include a beach hotel in Penang, although we’ve allocated plenty of beach time later (in Langkawi). During your stay here your guide will take you on a tour of the town - you’ll get to taste the best Dim Sum and learn a little about the street art too.

You’ll also spend a day with your guide exploring Penang’s National Park, the smallest and youngest of Malaysia’s National Parks. We recommend the 3km trail to Pantai Kerachut, a beautiful white sand beach with a seasonal lake that is home to turtles and is a great place to enjoy a banana leaf wrapped local lunch.

Days 8 -12 Langkawi

It is possible to take a ferry from Penang to Langkawi but it isn't especially fast and can be a bit choppy, so this time we recommend the flight; it's just 30 minutes from island to island. On arrival in Langkawi you’ll be transferred to your beach hotel, The Andaman, where you’ll check in to an Executive Suite for 5 nights. This hotel is a fantastic option for families; it's located on a beautiful, sweeping white sand bay and is surrounded by an ancient rainforest so nature alone provides a range of activities to enjoy. Take a guided jungle walk as you look out for monkeys, hornbills and macaques; use kayaks and paddleboards to explore the water; and learn about the fragile offshore ecosystem with the the resort's coral conservation project. And if parents (or children) fancy a break, then there's the Young Explorers Club, the spa and golf on offer too.

Days 13 & 14 Singapore

Your flight home is via either KL or Singapore so we suggest spending a day or two in Singapore, a great city with lots of child friendly activities that can be explored with ease. You’ll stay for 2 nights in a high standard family friendly hotel - they even make up the children's room with amenities suitable for their age group. During your stay we include a guided tour to the Singapore Night Safari - a thrilling 'nocturnal' zoo where, after dark, a guided tram leads you through eight geographical regions modelled on the habitats of the African savannah, Himalayan foothills and jungles of Southeast Asia.

The rest of the time is free to enjoy the pool and facilities and perhaps do some last minute shopping before flying home.  If you prefer, we can alter the itinerary to include additional activities. From the Universal Studios theme park to cultural city walks, Singapore has something for everyone.


Day 15 Fly Home

Depart Singapore for your flight back to the UK.
