Malaysian Suggested Itineraries

Malaysia is a mix of so many diversities as far as vacations are concerned. On one hand, it is home to ancient rainforests with endangered inhabitants such as orangutans and sun bears. On the other hand, it has some of the most beautiful beaches you can ever see. And, a rich cultural and historical legacy is always there to be explored. Malaysia has a unique mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous tribal people. This is reflected even in cuisines seen in the country. While the climate is mostly tropical, you can see soothing climate in Cameron Highlands, tea producing region of Malaysia.
We believe you should take time to go through the country and not rush through. It is better to explore only a few places thoroughly than touching a number of places only on surface. We have given below a set of itineraries. You can choose one of these, or you can get these customized to suit your requirements in terms of time and budget.
