Malaysia Overview

An eclectic mix of culture, Malaysia boasts stunning beaches, fantastic shopping and great adventure.

With some beautiful dive sites, couples can see stunning coral reefs and wreck sites that are just waiting to be explored. If you would rather stay above the water then a guided jungle trek might be for you, if you’re lucky you may even get to see an elusive orang-utan during your trek.

After a hard days shopping, what better thing to do than to visit one of the world renowned spas and enjoy some self-indulgent relaxation before walking hand in hand along one of the many idyllic beaches.
