DETAILED DECRIPTION

Experience for yourself the similarities and differences between sparkling Singapore and mesmerizing Malaysia. These two countries were once part of the same state, but in 1965, Singapore became independent. Nowadays, their cultural similarities make them friendly neighbors, while the juxtaposition of their vastly different landscapes make them a fascinating combination to visit on a single trip. You'll journey from Singapore to Malacca, Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands, Penang, and round off your trip in the paradisaical island of Langkawi.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Marina Bay

Arrive in Singapore and get ready to begin your journey. You'll be greeted at the airport, and transported to your luxury hotel. We recommend the Raffles Singapore, a historic destination in itself. Once you've checked out your new temporary abode, head out into Singapore's bustling, pristine streets to explore the city. Check out Little India, Arab Street, and Chinatown, enjoying a bite to eat at a hawker stall. Round off your day with a river cruise aboard a traditional bumboat, meandering through the city’s various bays and quays.

DAY 2: Singapore

Explore more of Singapore today. In the morning, embark on an architectural tour of the city, guided by a resident architectural expert who will point out fascinating details and facts. In the evening, enjoy a light show, either at the Botanical Gardens or riverfront at Marina Bay Sands, before toasting to the day with cocktails overlooking the city at Sands SkyPark, on top one of the city’s major attraction and iconic structures, Marina Bay Sands.

DAY 3: Singapore

Learn to cook some of the delicious food you’ve been eating during your time in the city at a morning Singaporean cooking class. The Asian Civilizations Museum is your next stop, where you’ll gain some intriguing insight into the region’s culture. Finally, a trip to the Singapore Zoo is in order for a mystical and exciting safari ride through the rainforest, a perfect end to your Singapore stay.

DAY 4: Malacca

Enjoy a final gourmet breakfast at your hotel this morning, before checking out to embark on the next leg of your journey. You'll be chauffeur-driven for 3 hours to Malacca, a state on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Its eponymous capital city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and makes a great layover before you continue your journey to Malaysia tomorrow.

DAY 5: Kuala Lumpur

Drive 2 hours to Kuala Lumpur today, a major Southeast Asian hub, and a surprisingly modern city. Check in to your executive suite at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and step back out into the city to get acquainted with your new surroundings. There is lots to see in KL: we recommend Merdeka Square, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, the Central Market, Sze Ya Temple, and Petaling Street Market. If time allows, round off the day with a trip to the Lake Gardens Butterfly Park, the world's largest. Head back to your hotel this evening to relax and enjoy a restful sleep.

DAY 6: Kuala Lumpur

After a tasty hotel breakfast, begin your second day in Kuala Lumpur with a visit to the National Visual Arts Gallery. Your museum tour continues with your next stop, at the National Museum, featuring ancient Malay artefacts. Finally, check out some of Malaysia's colourful sea-life at the Aquaria KLCC. Return to your hotel to enjoy the evening at your leisure.

DAY 7: Cameron Highlands

Check out of your hotel and drive 3.5 hours to the Cameron Highlands this morning, enjoying the picturesque landscape from the car window. Drop off your bags at the luxurious Cameron Highlands Resort, one of the world's best tea plantation hotels. Tour the grounds of Boh Tea Plantation nearby, and savor a freshly-made brew. If you're up to it, peruse the nearby rainforest this afternoon, checking out the local flora and fauna, while breathing in the fresh mountain air.

DAY 8: Penang

Drive (4 hours) or fly to Malaysia's cultural heart, Penang. Refuel with a steaming hot Indian meal, rich with flavor, from one of Little India's many restaurants. Check in to your suite at the Eastern and Oriental Hotel, and freshen up. Head to Lover's Lane's famous street art, and the centuries-old clan jetties at Weld Quay. Return to your hotel in the evening, or stay out to experience Penang's nightlife.

DAY 9: Penang

Take in some of Penang's art culture this morning – you may choose from the State Art Gallery, the Alpha Utara Gallery, Galeri Seni Mutiara, Galeri Art Point, and Penang Malay Art Gallery, or even see them all! In the afternoon, you'll see two of the cities most fascinating religious sites, starting with the Kapitan Keling Mosque, with its spectacular red domes, and the Snake Temple, full of live, venom-less snakes.

DAY 10: Penang

Start your morning off with an attraction named UNESCO's “Most Excellent Project,” Cheong Fatt Tze mansion. Next, scale Penang Hill and check out the spectacular view from the top, as well as unique wildlife along the way. Return to your hotel tonight to unwind and get a good night's sleep ahead of tomorrow's departure.

DAY 11: Langkawi

Depart Penang today, and hop on a plane to nearby Langkawi this morning. This charming tropical island has excellent strips of beach, ideal for sunbathing. Check in to your suite at the Four Seasons Langkawi, and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure.

DAY 12: Langkawi

Today is all about leisure – enjoy your beach time as you please. If you feel like exploring, rent a car or bike and cruise across the island's 193-square-mile landscape, checking out new, hidden beaches and trying to find the perfect spot for a picnic. Return to your luxury hotel tonight to enjoy a five-star beachside dinner.

DAY 13: Langkawi

Enjoy more leisure time today, enjoying beachside or poolside lounging, or heading out on an island adventure. Telaga Tujuh Waterfall is a lovely spot to spend some time, or you may prefer to try out a trek through the island's pristine nature. Return to your luxury resort for a final night on Langkawi.

DAY 14: Departure

Say goodbye to Langkawi and Malaysia today, as your journey comes to an end. You'll be transferred to the international airport in time for your onward journey, either home, or to your next exciting destination.
