Your itinerary

Day 1

Fly from the UK to Kuala Lumpur.

Days 2-4

Kuala Lumpur

Touch down in exotic Kuala Lumpur, known locally as KL, a bit of a cultural melting pot with Chinese, Malay, western, and Indian influences. Check out Chinatown’s open-air bazaar and taste the delicious Malay cuisine. Perhaps head up to the observation deck on level 86 of the Petronas Towers for sweeping city views. The Batu Caves in KL’s northern suburbs, a vast limestone cavern filled with elaborate Hindu shrines and inhabited by monkeys and bats, are a popular excursion. Closer to home you can admire the Chinese style Thean Hou Temple, or take a wander around historic Merdeka square.

Days 5-8

Kota Kinabalu

After KL, it’s time for KK as you fly across to Kota Kinabalu on the island of Borneo. Used mainly as a gateway to access the surrounding islands and forests, as well as the soaring 4095 metre peak of Mount Kinabalu, Kota Kinablu is filled with bustling night markets, sensational cuisine and some remarkable Chinese temples. Look out for wildlife in Kinabalu Park, home to a vast array of endemic species such as the Kinabalu friendly warbler. When the sightseeing gets too much soak yourself in the soothing mineral baths at Poring Hot Springs.

Shangri La's Rasa Ria Resort & SPA

Days 9-13


Fly onwards to Penang and the kaleidoscope of colour that is Georgetown, a buzzing and atmospheric city with a strong Chinese influence. Take a look around the numerous historical buildings and admire the colonial architecture, and browse the trinkets and mementos for sale in Little India’s energetic market. For a cool respite from steamy Georgetown, take a wander up Penang Hill where you’ll be treated to an outstanding view all the way across to the mainland. Later, dine on board a steamboat as part of your Penang sunset tour.
