Holidays to Malaysia
Discover two countries for the price of one
Malaysia is spread over two locations. Half of the country borders Thailand and Singapore at the south-eastern tip of the Asian mainland, while the other half lies across the South China Sea on the island of Borneo, where it borders Brunei and Indonesia. The peninsula side is teeming with skyscrapers in the capital of Kuala Lumpur – check out the handpicked offers and exclusive prices on the luxury hotels dotted about this vibrant melting pot of a city – along with wonderful colonial architecture and tea plantations. Over in Malaysian Borneo, you’ll find orangutans, remote tribes and quaint villages.
Immerse yourself in a land teeming with wonderful flora and fauna
Thanks to Borneo, Malaysia is famous for its orangutans, but it is bursting with untamed nature beyond those adorable creatures. Holidays to Malaysia can transport you to jungles packed full of rare and exotic species, from tigers and leopards to elephants and wild boar, while coral reefs are swarming with tropical fish, turtles and shark. You can discover some 200 species of mammal, 80 types of lizard, 140 kinds of snake, 600 bird varieties, 300 species of fish and thousands of insects spread across Malaysia. Meanwhile there are 8,000 species of plants, 2,000 types of tree and 800 different forms of orchid, along with 200 different types of palm tree.
Lounge on idyllic beaches, sample delicious food and enjoy the rich culture
Malaysia is a sun worshipper’s dream and perfect for luxury holidays, with average temperatures of 27ºC/81ºF, so check out our range of exclusive offers today. Malaysia’s tropical coastline is lined with gorgeous beaches that can rival the likes of Thailand and Bali. The beaches are also less trodden, cheaper, less crowded and less spoilt than the more famous names in Thailand. If you're a foodie, you won't be disappointed by Malaysia. It benefits from Malay, Chinese and Indian influences and offers a gastronomic journey into the heart of Asia and its wonderful array of herbs and spices. The dominant cultural power in Malaysia is Islam, but there are large Christian and Hindu minorities, leaving the country packed full of a marvellous range of mosques, churches and temples for you to explore. Indian festivals, Chinese street fairs and Malay village ceremonies also add colour and spice to this veritable cultural melting pot.
