SAMPLE MALAYSIA FAMILY HOLIDAY ITINERARIES:
SAMPLE MALAYSIA FAMILY HOLIDAY ITINERARIES:
Sitting at the southernmost tip of mainland Asia, adjoining Thailand above and surrounded on all remaining sides by water, Malaysia bears a landscape dominated by dense, lush rainforests teeming with exotic plant life, birds and mammals, fringed by boundless beaches of swamp and sand.
Rural fishing villages and stilt built residences make up the communities interspersed throughout the countryside, whilst city life is everything that you would expect from an Asian outpost.
Laying along the busy maritime route of the Malacca strait lies Penang, connected to the mainland by an eight-mile bridge, and home to the UNESCO word heritage city of George Town. Strewn with historical gems including beautiful colonial architecture, classic churches, Buddhist temples and grand mansions on Penang Hill, the island is also affectionately known as Malaysia’s food capital – the street food here is a first class fusion of Indian, Chinese and Asian flavours.
This trip is a grand tour of Malaysia, from the bright lights of Kuala Lumpur, to the amazing Taman Negara national park, a stay in the Cameron Highlands, a visit to Penang and finishing up in the city of Malacca.
This Grand Tour to Borneo ticks everything off the list and is the perfect trip for a first time visitor who wants to see and experience it all.
From Kota Kinabulu, you will work your way to Gaya Island, then East to Sandakan, a visit to the Danum Valley and Kinabatangan River, down to the Mulu Caves, finishing off in Kuching before heading to Kuala Lumpur. This route will allow you to tick off all the major highlights that Borneo has to offer ( Sempilok Orangutan Centre, the Kinabatangan River, the Mulu Caves, and finally Bako National Park).
