Charles can tailor-make your Malaysian holiday to your exact requirements, be it a family adventure, a luxury honeymoon or venturing off the beaten track to trek, spot wildlife or dive.
Synonymous with the mystery of the Far East, Malaysia still conjures visions of rubber trees, sultans, jungles, pirates, headhunters and exotic beaches. However there is a lot more to the country than first meets the eye and it manages to entice travellers from afar to sample the delights on offer.
Lying between Singapore to the south and Thailand to the north the Malaysian peninsula is divided between a pulsating and affluent west located on the Straits of Melaka and a more leisurely east, fringed by the South China Sea and speckled with wonderful remote beaches. Both regions offer an extraordinary mix of culture, religion and tradition and are home to an incredible diversity of tropical plants and animals.
Malaysia's diverse cultural history has led to an open-minded approach to tourism and it is one of the few countries where people of all religions manage to co-exist peacefully together. With a melting pot of Malay, Chinese, Indian as well as indigenous tribes this also means you are treated to varied and delicious cuisines!
Accommodation ranges from small beach huts and boutique guest hotels, to larger luxury resorts including Pangkor Laut, The Datai on Langkawi and Tanjong Jara on the east coast.
A holiday to Malaysia is easily combined with the island of Borneo which lies four hundred miles further across the sea, it is the 3rd largest island in the world and the northern half is part of Malaysia. Malaysian Borneo consists of the two states of Sarawak and Sabah with Brunei sandwiched between them. Here you will find pristine rainforest, the beautiful and endangered Orangutan, meandering rivers, mountains and deserted island beached ringed by pristine reefs.
