Kuala Lumpur | Penang
This is one of the most popular Malaysian combinations of city and beach. The friendly resort of Penang is just a little under an hour away from Kuala Lumpur and is a great place for an extended Malaysia holiday.
Day 1 - Kuala Lumpur
Arrive into Kuala Lumpur and transfer to the Furama Bukit Bintang right in the heart of the city for your three night stay. Everything is close by, including the vibrant Bukit Bintang area where you will find all manner of shops, restaurants, bars and nightlife.
Enjoy two full days exploring Malaysia's capital city at your leisure - the easy-to-use monorail is a brilliant way to get around. You'll find fine old colonial buildings and lively street markets rubbing shoulders with modern skyscrapers, including the famous Petronas Towers. Chinatown is a must or, for some peace and quiet, visit the Bird Park and Butterfly House of the Lake Gardens. Outside the city the ancient Batu Caves are well worth a visit.
Day 4 - Penang
Leave the bright lights of Kuala Lumpur behind as you fly to the popular island resort of Penang. The Holiday Inn is located right on the golden sands of Batu Ferringhi beach where the shores are washed by warm blue water.
If time permits, ask your Freedom Asia consultant about driving to Penang instead of flying, taking in the beautiful Cameron Highlands on the way.
Spend your days relaxing by the pool or exploring this delightful island. The main town of Georgetown is a fascinating mix of Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures jostling for space in the maze of narrow streets and lanes. You'll find some amazing places to eat and street markets perfect for souvenir shopping.
Just outside Georgetown are the Botanical Gardens and Penang Hill, with some magnificent views of the Island. There are plenty of temples to visit, two of the most popular being Snake Temple and Kek Lok Si Temple, the largest in Malaysia. In the evenings stroll through Batu Ferringhi's night market, right outside your hotels door.
Day 11 - Farewell
Say a sad farewell to Malaysia as you head home or continue your holiday elsewhere.
