Fascinating Malaysia boasts charming colonial towns, a dazzling capital city, incredible cuisine, pristine beaches and some of the world’s most biodiverse rainforests.
Once part of the British Empire with neighbouring Singapore as Malaya, it gained its independence in 1957 and has since developed into one of Asia’s most intriguing destinations. Experience the fascinating history through colonial towns such as George Town – named after King George III – and Malacca, and even the modern capital, Kuala Lumpur, where the influence of the British, Portuguese and Dutch can still be seen. The people are a melting pot of Chinese, Indian and Malay cultures, which is also reflected in the country’s remarkable cuisine.
Our tour of Malaysia, Borneo & Singapore also visits East Malaysia on the amazing tropical island of Borneo, featuring one of the oldest rainforests in the world, home to thousands of wonderful species of flora and fauna, including adorable orangutans and the world’s largest flower, the parasitic Rafflesia. Visit Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, a sanctuary that works to reintroduce these lovable creatures into the wild. A highlight of the trip is a three-night stay at the fabulously luxurious 5-star Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort.
