Take Penang Island and Kuala Lumpur, add in the Cameron Highlands and a heaping spoonful of delicious food, neon-lit temples, jungles and beaches – mix it all together and you’ve got Malaysia.
Look up the definition of multicultural and you’ll find a picture of Malaysia. OK, you won’t, but you should. This country puts the mmmm in mmmmelting pot. Everyone from the Portuguese, the Dutch, the British and the Japanese have ruled Malaysia, or at least parts of it. Not to mention a sultan or two.
Then there were the traders who came from India and China, bringing with them spices and silks. The result is an awesome mix of people, cultures and food. Translation: it's easy (and delicious) to eat your way through Malaysia.
There are dumplings, curries, seafood and noodles galore. But we also recommend a few cultural activities between meals.
Scale (by elevator) the Menara Kuala Lumpur, go trekking the Cameron Highlands and explore the colourful markets of Penang.
What people say
This is a trip that is hard but also fantastic. You get to experience the culture up close and personal, as well as pushing yourself along the trail. Definitely worth it if you want to try something outside the box.
What people say
Great tour, great small group. Borneo was awesome and clean, good infrastructure and nobody haggling you. Loved it!

Discover Sabah 2017, April 2017
This trip was utterly incredible! I cannot recommend it enough! Felix our guide was an absolute credit to the company- full of life, energy and useful tips (particularly where you could find the best roti's!) The mountain climb was an absolute highlight, one of the most physically and mentally difficult things I have ever done but SO WORTH IT! The view at the top is out of this world. We were lucky enough to see orang-utans, proboscis monkeys, grey tail monkeys, sun bears and flying squirrels in their natural habitat and it was just incredible! BOOK NOW!

Discover Sabah 2017, March 2017
The trip to Sabah is packed full of activities and there isn't too much down time, but if your the adventerous type then that won't be an issue! The hike to Mt Kinabalu and homestay visit are quite memorable moments! Its definitely not one to pass on thats for sure!
