Malaysia

Overview

Malaysia is a fantastic place to visit with a great variety of experiences on offer, from pure white beaches to soaring peaks and jungle-adorned interiors.

Just a stone’s throw away from Singapore, peninsula Malaysia has much to offer. Lush tea hills, pristine beaches on East and West coasts, all in contrast to the throbbing nerve centre of the country, capital city Kuala Lumpur. Kuala Lumpur is a glittering lattice of office towers, high-rise apartments and mega-malls, in which the twin spires of the Petronas Towers soar above.

Just over an hour’s drive south of Kuala Lumpur, Malacca is an easy drive from Singapore to get out of the city for a weekend. Take yourself a decade or two back in time, stroll the streets and sample local fare. This small city was one the crossroads for sea trades and therefore developed rapidly, with much of its people a mix of sea farers from Europe.

The Cameron Highland Tea Station is also a favoured retreat for city-dwellers to take in fresh air while taking the kids on an educational trip. On the winding drive up, stop by tea plantations and local fruit farms to learn about the agricultural methods employed by the natives for the export of their tasty produce.

Residing on the East & West Coasts are luxury beach retreats retaining much of traditional Malay flavour in decoration and architecture, adding to the idyllic beach charm of these white sandy shores.

Langkawi is unbeatable for its luxury hotels and chic, Malay-style boutique resorts. There is much to do: kayaking through the mangrove, delving into the rainforest with a veteran naturalist, a boat trip around the archipelago or a round of golf. Or if you simply want to go horizontal by the pool listening to the gentle lapping of the waves, slap on the sunscreen and you’re good to go.

For nature-lovers, Malaysian Borneo is the ultimate destination, with the oldest rainforest in the world and home to a mindboggling species of flora and fauna. Numbers are: 15,000 species of flowering plants, 3,000 species of trees, 221 species of mammals and 420 species of resident birds! Borneo also has a tantalising mix of kampong eco-villages and luxury beachside campsites, filled with wildlife and friendly, laid-back locals.
