Day 1 :  ARRIVAL KUALA LUMPUR

Upon arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, meet your tour representative at the arrivals hall and catch your transfer to your accommodation for the next four nights in the capital of Malaysia. The rest of the time is for you to spend at leisure. Depending on your arrival time, take to the streets to explore the vibrant city that is Kuala Lumpur. Be amazed by its colonial architecture and numerous landmarks, such as the world tallest twin skyscrapers, the Petronas Twin Towers; or simply indulge in the gastronomic delights that the city has to offer. 

Overnight in Kuala Lumpur 

Day 2 :   KUALA LUMPUR: PETRONAS TWIN TOWERS AND AQUARIA KLCC

After breakfast, start your day on a high with a visit to Malaysia’s tallest building, the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. This futuristic 88-storey structure rises to a dizzying height of 452 metres above the city and was the world’s highest building when it was built. Begin your tour with interactive displays that showcase its construction, from concept to completion. Climb 170 metres in a lift with a futuristic edge and hold your breath as the doors open at the double-decker sky bridge that connects the towers. The sky bridge holds a record of its own as the world’s highest two-story bridge! Continue the ascent to the 86th floor, 360 metres high, where the story of modern Malaysia’s vision unfolds before your very eyes as you take in the awe-inspiring views of Kuala Lumpur and the hills on the horizon. Having seen Kuala Lumpur from the top, now it’s time to see what lies beneath with an amazing underwater experience at Aquaria KLCC. This magical aquarium showcases animals and marine life from all over the country and around the world. Explore exotic tropical waters and wade through steamy rainforests during a spellbinding journey of discovery. See up to 5,000 examples of aquatic and land-bound creatures in a vast, sprawling complex located in the concourse level of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. There’s a break for lunch (on own accounts) at the Suria KLCC shopping centre. The evening is yours to spend at leisure. 

 Overnight in Kuala Lumpur

Day 3 :  KUALA LUMPUR: KL BIRD PARK AND HORNBILL PARK

Fill up with breakfast to power your way through a morning exploring two of Kuala Lumpur’s most colourful attractions. The KL Bird Park is just a 10-minute drive from the city centre but it feels like another planet. Located in the lush, landscaped Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens, it is the home to more than 3,000 birds from some 200 species, both native and foreign. This serene and scenic natural retreat is divided into four aviary zones, with the birds free to fly in three of them, which encourages them to breed naturally. Observe the courtship ritual of the Indian blue peacock or be amazed by the sheer size of the crowned pigeon, the largest pigeon species in the world. Catch a glimpse of doves, egrets and ibises feeding, and head over to the Flamingo Pond and watch pelicans and flamingos frolic in the shimmering waters. At the Hornbill Park, visit a true tropical Malaysian rainforest, with its towering evergreen trees, some soaring up to the height of a 10-storey building, and see the magnificent rhinoceros hornbill, with its shiny ebony plumage. Break for lunch (on own accounts) at one of the many local coffee shops before catching the scheduled Bird Show. Return to the hotel after the tour. Rest of the day at your leisure. 

Overnight in Kuala Lumpur

Day 4 :  KUALA LUMPUR: SUNWAY LAGOON THEME PARK

The action comes thick and fast today, with eight hours spent in the sensational Sunway Lagoon theme park. After breakfast, you will be transferred to the south-western outskirts of Kuala Lumpur for what promises to be a day full of thrills and spills. At Waters of Africa, make a splash at one of the largest man made surf beaches in the world. Over in the Amusement Park, shriek your way into the Lost City of Gold Scream Coaster. Explore the Jungle Trail, Aviary, Tiger Land and more at the Wildlife Park. In the Extreme area, you can ride ATVs and go-karts or load up for a game of paintball, while in the Scream Park, Kuala Lumpur becomes the ground zero of World War Z Live. Whatever you’re up for, you’ll find it at Sunway Lagoon! Purchase an e-wallet for lunch (at own expense) in the theme park. Return to hotel in the afternoon. The evening is at your own leisure. 

Overnight in Kuala Lumpur

Day 5 :   KUALA LUMPUR – PENANG (360km – 4.5 hrs)

Bid farewell to KL after breakfast with pick-up from the inn in the morning for departure to Penang. Enjoy a pleasant drive towards Malaysia’s north-western coast, crossing three states along the way. Pass through beautiful, pastoral countryside with palm oil and rubber plantations and the dramatic Cameron Highlands on the horizon to the right. Stop along the way for lunch (on own accounts). Cross the Selatan Strait to Penang via the 13.5km-long Penang Bridge, an awe-inspiring feat of engineering and check in to your accommodation for the next four nights. The rest of the day is all to yourself.

Overnight  in Penang

Day 6 :  PENANG – GEORGE TOWN TOUR

Enjoy your first breakfast in Penang before heading to George Town for an alternative take on this historic city, a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site. Begin at the 3D Trick Gallery, where three-dimensional exhibitions will have you feeling like an integral part of the murals on display. Your eyes will deceive you more than once before heading to the popular Camera Museum. Nowadays, a camera has become an extension of our hands but just a few generations ago, it was a source of wonderment – a revolutionary device that allowed our ancestors to record and portray a disappearing world. Here you’ll find out who invented photography, who made the first camera and much, much more. There are also displays of classic cameras, which you will have the opportunity to handle. Break for lunch for some local favourites, quell your growling stomach by tucking into Penang’s ‘national dish’, char koay teow (flat noodles fried with bean sprouts and prawns). Return to the hotel after the tour. The evening is at your own leisure. 

Overnight in Penang

Day 7 :  PENANG: BREAK THE CODE EXPERIENCE

Breakfast at the hotel is followed by a short hop down the road to visit Malaysia’s oldest toy museum. Admire the more than 100,000 toys and over 100 life-sized figures as well as a wide range of exhibits of dolls and miniatures, collectables from famous movies and much, much more. Then it’s time for some hands-on action at Break The Code, where you experience a real-life version of the popular point-and-click escape-the-room computer game. It requires quick, analytical thinking, strong observation skills, logic and plenty of imagination. You are locked in a dark room with other players and given a number of clues and puzzles to solve, armed with only a torchlight and your wits. There are four themes to choose from and you have one hour to escape, or else… you could be trapped inside forever! Break for a tasty hawker’s lunch at a local food court (on own accounts). Return to hotel after the activity. The evening is at your own leisure. 

Overnight in Penang 

Day 8 :  PENANG CYCLING STREET ART TOUR

Another day of activity awaits after a leisurely breakfast in the hotel. Pick up your bike for the day and cycle into town for an open-air, almost impromptu, art exhibition and a heritage trail of George Town’s historic core. Every now and then, you’ll happen upon evocative and eye-catching – and often three-dimensional – murals painted on walls and street furniture such as phone booths. It’s not graffiti but rather a ground-breaking and thought-provoking project, known as Mirrors of George Town. The murals, which depict humorous paintings of subjects such as children at play, toys, animals and other surreal images, are the handiwork of young Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic. More Zacharevic creations can also be seen at the next destination, Chew Jetty, though here the attraction is actually the homes themselves, which are built on stilts and hover over the sea. These clusters of wooden houses were built by the poor Chinese immigrants who worked near the port during the 19th century. Drop the bikes back to the shop and proceed for local Indian lunch (on own accounts), try the tandoori chicken, roti canai (Indian flat bread) or mee goreng (fried noodles). Later, you will get the chance to savour popular local desserts (on own accounts): chendol, a cold dessert made from shaved ice with coconut milk, red beans and green starch jelly noodles, or ais kacang, which is made from shaved ice with sweet corn, jelly, peanuts and red beans, all drenched in syrup and milk. Return to hotel after eating and enjoy a free afternoon and evening. 

Overnight in Penang

Day 9 :  DEPART PENANG

Savour one final breakfast at the hotel and make the most of its facilities until the time comes to leave Malaysia behind and head for the airport to catch your onward flight.
