Singapore & Peninsular Malaysia in 2 weeks itinerary
This itinerary is the perfect introduction for a first time visit to South-East Asia. We suggest return flights to Singapore or Kuala Lumpur or flying into Singapore and departing from Kuala Lumpur (or vise versa). The best flight deals are usually found flying in and out of the same city and having a stop en-route usually via the middle east with Qatar Airways, Emirates or via Mumbai flying with Jet airways. Our suggested itinerary takes in the two regional metropolises of Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, relaxation on the paradise isle of Palau Tioman , the cultural and historic centre of Malacca and a journey into the Cameron Highlands.
Singapore & Peninsular Malaysia in 2 weeks Itinerary
Arrive in Singapore fresh from your 12-14 hour journey from the UK! Most flights tend to arrive in the morning or around lunch time. Get a cab from the airport to your downtown hotel, check in and freshen up ready for a relaxing afternoon exploring Singapore's central neighbourhoods. Spend another two days exploring the city, we highly recommend visiting Gardens by the Bay, China Town for Singapore's famous Hawker food centres and the Singapore Night Safari.View Itinerary
Spend five days relaxing at this luxury eco resort on the shores of the stunning Tioman Island. Here you'll find plenty of great diving and snorkelling activities, you can trek through the jungle to find beautiful waterfalls and visit the Juara Turtle Project.View Itinerary
Take the bus from Mersing jetty to Malacca where you will spend the next two nights, although the buses are comfortable this is a journey that takes pretty much al day. Learn about the rich heritage of Malacca, ride a colourful rickshaw and feast on authentic Nonya cuisine.View Itinerary
Spend two days in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s steamy capital city. Enjoy the vibrant street food scene, ascend the worlds tallest twin towers, shop 'til you drop and visit one of Malaysias most distinctive geographical features, the Batu Caves. The best accommodation can be found in the KLCC district, there are many five star hotels here (such as Shangri-La, Mandarin Oriental, etc) all priced very reasonably from around £100 / night. We stayed at the Traders hotel which has a fantastic roof top pool which doubles as a bar / nightclub in the evenings!View Itinerary
Hire a car from central KL (or take the bus if you prefer) and escape from the heat for two days of fresh air and hiking in the Cameron Highlands. Here you will find serene tea plantations and lush jungle scenery. Stay at the Cameron Highlands Resort for good hospitality, food options and orgainsed tours of the area.View Itinerary
