Fly from UK to Malacca
Transfer to the historic port city of Malacca, where you’ll find an intoxicating blend of heritage architecture, diverse fusion cuisine and a vibrant waterfront. Wander through the winding streets of this UNESCO World Heritage site, pausing to take in the ancient landmarks and colonial structures. Chinese traders have strongly influenced the history, culture and food of Malacca, and where better to witness this than buzzing Jonker Street, lined with countless museums, souvenir shops and restaurants serving the sweet yet spicy Nyonya cuisine.
Your next stop is Malaysia’s vibrant capital, Kuala Lumpur. This modern metropolis is dominated by the impressive Petronas Twin Towers and features world-class shopping and a fantastic contemporary art scene. Nonetheless, Kuala Lumpur stays close to its ancient roots and as you stroll through the city you’ll witness traditional temples, colourful markets and street food stalls dotted around. Take a trip to a local market and taste some freshly-prepared home-cooked dishes and visit the mesmerising Batu Caves – one of Malaysia’s most important Hindu sites.
It’s time to relax on Pangkor Laut, a rainforest-covered island off Malaysia’s west coast. Activities abound with twinkling turquoise seas allowing for fishing trips, romantic sunset cruises and sportier pursuits such as kayaking and golf. Discover the island’s tropical vegetation and fascinating wildlife on a guided jungle trek, or perhaps you’d prefer to feel the sand between your toes as you unwind on a soft sandy beach.
