Luxury Malaysia Holidays
Malaysia is a holiday destination with so much to offer, from buzzing cities to white sand beaches and jungle-adorned interiors.
In capital city Kuala Lumpur, the twin spires of the Petronas Towers soar above bustling hawker stalls and wet markets. Visit Bukit Bintang, KL's shopping district; sample fragrant curries in the Little India neighbourhood of Brickfields; or take a traditional high tea at restored colonial gem, Hotel Majestic.
Malacca, located on the west coast, is a step back in time. Stroll the atmospheric streets and soak up the rich history and beautiful heritage buildings. Further north, the Cameron Highlands has cool temperatures and breathtaking views of emerald tea plantations.
Penang comes with a captivating past, a string of soft sandy shores, and is the unofficial food hub of Malaysia. Capital George Town is perfect for exploration on foot, with the old town featuring Chinese shophouses, trishaws and a blend of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences.
Langkawi is unbeatable for its luxury hotels and chic Malay-style boutique resorts. Kayak through the mangroves, delve into the rainforest, take a boat trip around the archipelago, or practice a round of golf on a world-class course. Try local street food at the vibrant night markets or get unbeatable views from the top of a cable car.
For nature-lovers, Malaysian Borneo is home to the oldest rainforest in the world and a mind-boggling species of flora and fauna. View endangered orangutans, white-water raft down raging rivers, or climb Mt Kinabalu, the highest mountain in Malaysia.
