Classic Malaysia - spend a few days exploring vibrant Kuala Lumpur and staying in one of our favourite 5* hotels, before heading to Borneo where a day trip to see the amazing Orang Utans is included.
Day 1 - UK to Kuala Lumpur
Fly from Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur, arriving the following day. Departures from other UK airports are also available, please ask for details.
Day 2 - Kuala Lumpur
On arrival in to Kuala Lumpur you'll be met at the airport and transferred to the historic Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur, for a three night stay. We’re very accommodating when it comes to how long you spend in each location, so if three nights here isn’t spot-on for you, just let us know!
Days 3-4 - Kuala Lumpur
You now have the next couple of days to get to know Kuala Lumpur. We’d definitely factor in a visit to Petaling Street Market in to your itinerary one evening - the area buzzes with food stalls and souvenirs, but it’s the less-than-authentic designer goods that most people come here for.
Day 5 - Kuala Lumpur to Borneo
Transfer back to Kuala Lumpur airport for your onward flight to Kota Kinabalu. On arrival you’ll be met at the airport and transferred to the Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa for a seven night stay. If this hotel isn’t ideal just let us know - we have a wide selection of properties to offer!
Days 6-11 - Borneo - including Orang Utan trip
Spend the rest of your week on Borneo, relaxing and exploring.
On one day we’ve arranged a trip to the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre. Early morning, transfer to the airport to board a plane for Sandakan to visit the world’s largest Orang Utan Sanctuary. Meet and greet at the airport and drive for approximately 30 minutes to Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre where orphaned and injured Orang Utans are brought to Sepilok to be rehabilitated to return and fend for themselves back to the wild. Sepilok is a primary lowland forest; a fine showcase of Borneo’s remaining rainforest. Witness the 10 am feeding of Orang Utan from a platform in the forest. Watch the 25 minutes scheduled video documentary show. Stop at local restaurant for lunch and at 2 pm proceed for a city tour and explore the various landmarks of Sandakan, which may include the Central Market, the most amazing variety of fresh seafood and agricultural products, Sim-Sim Water Village where houses are all built close to the water surface while observing the fascinating view of the sea, visit Puh Jih Syh Buddhist Temple which offers a panoramic view of Sandakan Bay situated on the hilltop of Tanah Merah. After the tour, transfer to airport for your evening flight back to Kota Kinabalu.
Day 12 - Borneo to UK
Transfer back to Kota Kinabalu airport for your return flight to the UK.
