With tropical beaches, ancient rainforests and exciting regional cuisine, it’s easy to fall head over heels for the islands of Malaysia.
A very special luxury holiday experience lies waiting in Malaysia, where the wonders of the natural world will captivate your senses, the melting pot of cultures intoxicate your soul and the scenic environment indulge your curiosity.
Here at the Inspiring Travel Company we can build your Malaysian adventure around your own ‘must see’ highlights, which could, for example, include: orangutan spotting, tree-top walks through the rainforest, cooking Malay cuisine with a professional chef, walking the Skybridge at the iconic Petronas Twin Towers or sailing on the Andaman Sea.
There are many great experiences to be had in Malaysia. The idyllic beaches, exotic wildlife, ancient rainforests, delicious cuisine and mythical traditions make it a destination that’s both fascinating and diverse and a great place to escape the poor January weather in the UK. For fine dining and brilliant shopping visit the eclectic and stylish city of Kuala Lumpur, while a true sense of escapism can be found on the pristine white sands and traditional spas of Langkawi.
Whilst in the country, it’s also well worth the utterly memorable experience of heading to the verdant jungles of Malaysian Borneo to see captivating orangutans in their natural environment; a sight which will permanently mark itself on your memory.
Most flights to Malaysia will stop in Singapore or go direct to the capital Kuala Lumpur, making for a superb and seamless stop-over either at the beginning or end of your travels in these hip cities.
