Kuala Lumpur & Sabah – 8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS
Kuala Lumpur never fails to impress through its mix of cultural heritage and modern day achievements. It’s a city of contrasts that seamlessly coexist, wrapped in a landscape of verdant green countryside. Bustling markets attract the inquisitive eye while Chinatown will satisfy any hungry passer-by. It’s a great place to orientate oneself and commence a longer journey through Malaysia.
With the option to fly almost anywhere in Asia from the city, we have combined it with 5 nights exploring the wildlife haven of Sabah. Extensive rainforests are home to endangered orangutan, native villages provide the opportunity to witness a rarely seen way of existence in the modern world and mountains rise from heart-achingly perfect landscapes.
Come face-to-face with an abundance of intriguing animals, dine in remote wooden lodges – connect with the natural world like never before on a journey of treasured memories.
