Its colonial past gives it the added twist of familiarity and the mix of cultures gives Malaysia a charm all of its own.

Put simply, this is a beautiful country with a huge diversity of character, scenery and culture, which captivates all who visit.

Taking you from Kuala Lumpur and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Malacca to the verdant Cameron Highlands and the beautiful temples of Penang, this self-drive tour of Malaysia allows you to autonomously discover the best of this beautiful country.
