Tailor-made Malaysia Holidays

A temple in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Home to some of the oldest rainforest on earth and one of the world’s most high-tech capital cities, there are two distinct sides to Malaysia, both figuratively and literally. Renowned for its dynamic cuisine and postcard-perfect beaches, this is a country that inspires exotic adventure. Visit the orangutans of Borneo (East Malaysia) or go on a foodie adventure in George Town – Malaysia’s foodie capital on the island of Penang. Malaysia’s palm-edged, white-sand beaches really steal the show, so ask our Travel Experts to design your itinerary to balance relaxation with experiencing the cultural and adventure-packed highlights of this amazing country.

Where to Go in Malaysia

Most Malaysia holidays begin in Kuala Lumpur, the country’s vibrant and cosmopolitan capital city. After a few days in the city, most travellers opt to fly east to Borneo Malaysia for an exotic jungle stay at Kota Kinabalu, or fly north to the idyllic islands of Penang or Langkawi. Penang and Langkawi are relatively close together and can be reached via a two-hour, 45-minute ferry or 25-minute flight, so it’s well worth visiting both islands.

Malaysia Holiday Types

A holiday in Malaysia offers a veritable platter of experiences, from the adventurous to the relaxing. So if you’re looking to simply unwind on a beach, immerse yourself in local culture or enjoy a little bit of both in complete luxury, we have a Malaysia holiday type to suit you.
