With golden temples and saffron-robed monks, soft white beaches and bright blue skies, tantalising seafood and a host of shopping spots, our journey through the Malay Peninsula and up to Thailand is sure to delight.
Day 1 Singapore
Sip a Singapore Sling in the Raffles Hotel where the famous drink was invented, or seek out a bargain on Orchard Road.
Day 2 Melaka
Get to know this historic port city and admire Chinatown's unique Peranakan architecture from the back of a trishaw.
Days 3-4 Kuala Lumpur
Absorb the multicultural mix that is Kuala Lumpur on a half-day city tour. In free time stroll Dataran Merdeka, shop in Suria KLCC or scale the 272 steps up to the Batu Caves. Be sure to indulge in the myriad tasty food options this city is famous for.
Days 5-6 Homestay
Sample succulent tropical fruits such as rambutan or the pungent durian before seeing how traditional Malays live at a homestay. Sitting cross-legged on the floor for meals, using fingers instead of knives and forks and dressing in sarongs all makes for a great cultural experience.

Don a snorkel to discover the underwater treasures of Ang Thong Marine National Park - an archipelago of untouched islands surrounded by pristine coral reefs pulsing with life. Wake early to watch the sunrise or to enjoy a final swim before boarding the train to Bangkok.
