This two week jaunt around the East Coast of Malaysia is the perfect escape during the British summer. Hop between paradise islands, explore the majestic rainforest at Taman Negara and soak up the big city sights in both Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. A family friendly tour, as well as a great option for honeymooners and couples looking for the ultimate escape, this tour really is perfect for all. Overland travel is included to take in the beautiful views throughout mainland Malaysia and accommodation will be varied – from rainforest lodges to idyllic island hideaways with 5 star comforts. On the Perhentian Islands accommodation is more 3 star than bling, but for those looking to up the luxe the destinations can be changed to suit.
