A few of the  dozens of other options may be Vimanmek Teak Mansion, Chinatown, Wat Traimit, Jim Thompsons House, Silom or Sukhumvit road shops.
OR? Maybe just lay back and have a traditional Thai Massage.
A month in the capital wouldn't allow you enough time to see it all. 


Day 2:


BANGKOK -  A free day to recover from any jet lag by the pool or get out and experience what this truly amazing city has to offer with your tour coordinator available to point you in the right direction whether it be sight seeing and/or shopping or a real Thai meal experience that can only be had in Thailand. One of the most visited cities in the world and it wont take long for you to find out why. B.

Day 3:

 Tonight our Experience Malaysia in comfort small group tour will stay in; KUALA LUMPUR - A short international flight today will see our small group tour in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. Better known to all as simply K.L. A bit like a smaller version of Bangkok is K.L. with loads to see and do. The Petronas Twin Towers is the must see for most.


  • For an even higher view of the city try the 421 metre high Menara KL (KL Tower) built on top of the Bukit Manas Forest Reserve.
  • Thean Hou Temple
  • National Art Gallery
  • Islamic Arts Museum
  • National museum

Then in no particular order it may be the colonial Kuala Lumpur Train Station, Merdeka Square, Masjid Negara (National Mosque), Masjid Jamek (Friday Mosque) or stroll around the Central Market or Lake gardens where the K.L. bird Park; is the worlds largest walk in aviary with almost 200 species of birds. But just like Bangkok; A month wouldn't allow enough time to see all the sights.   B.


Day 4:

 KUALA LUMPUR - A totally free day to explore K.L. The city centre is reasonably compact  which makes for an interesting stroll in itself. B.


 Petaling street in Chinatown  has a multitude of street vendors. Other opportunities for shopping include:
Central Market
 Royal Selangor Pewter Factory

Just a few of the many shopping malls include: 

Berjaya Times Square
Mid Valley megamall 
Pavillion K

 Not into shopping all day then well worth a visit also is the Batu Caves, a short bus ride out of town. Walk up the 272 steps to the impressive Temple Cave. The Batu Caves is where the yearly, three day Thaipusan festival is centred around. B.



Day 5:

Tonight our Experience Malaysia in comfort small group tour will stay in; MELAKA - A morning bus ride today  will have our small group tour in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Melaka. Along with Penang, Melaka has one of the richest history in all of Malaysia.  Start at Melaka's most well known pink landmark of Stadthuys (Town Square) in the historic town centre which maybe the oldest Dutch building in the East. A large number of museums in the area include the Islamic, Architecture, Peoples,History & Ethnography and Literature Museum among others. Then maybe, St Paul's Church, 8 Hereen St, which is a Heritage trust of Malaysia restored Dutch Era residential house, Cheng Hoon Teng Temple (circa 1646), which is still in use today by the local Buddhist community or the oldest functioning mosque in Malaysia of Masjid Kampung Hulu, (circa 1728). Melaka has far to many attractions to list here. Nonya food is one of the different styles more famous in Melaka but you will find a plethora of others, both local and international . Between seeing and eating you can browse at the many shops along the famous Jonkers street now called Jalan Hang Jebat or at the modern shopping mall of Dataran Pahlawan. B.

Day 6:

MELAKA - A free day to explore all of the above which is centred around todays Chinatown. Maybe a Banana Leaf meal in nearby  Little India? B.

Day 7:

Tonight our Experience Malaysia in comfort small group tour will stay in; TANAH RATA - After a long days travel you will have the  chance to cool down when we arrive in the hill station town of Tanah Rata, the main town in the Cameron Highlands. At 1800 metres above sea level it's blankets year round at night with cooler but not cold days most of the year.

Some of the attractions include the Tea Estates. Sam Poh Temple and the Sri Tehnadayuthapany Swamy Temple.

But with the cooler climate the major passtime for most visitors is hiking along the mountain trails of which there are numerous marked ones.

Once again another foodies delight awaits in Tanah Rata with some of the best South Indian restaurants in Malaysia. Just one worth a mention is Bunga Suria with their food just about as good as it gets. Lots of Arts and Craft shops nearby to tempt you also.  B.

Day 8:

TANAH RATA - Check out the enviromental awareness in the highlands at before either a morning or afternoon half day tour of the region today. The tour includes a visit to the Boh Tea Estate; a chinese temple and a butterfly farm while all the time enjoying the great scenery as you go. B. 

Day 9:

TANAH RATA - With lots of walks to do in the cooler air there's no excuse for just sitting around and trying the sensational food. You can still do that after working up an appetite. An optional Agro Delight tour maybe?  or visit a honey bee farm for a look at a working apiary? B.

Day 10:

Tonight our  ExperienceMalaysia in comfort small group tour will stay in; TAIPING - A short bus trip today will see our small group tour in the lesser known but no less historical town of Taiping. Taiping is small enough to walk around and take in the relaxed feel of the colonial era buildings of which most are well over a century old. Taiping also has a 62 hectare lake gardens which includes  one of the best zoo's in the country.; The zoo opens in the evening also for a night safari. B.

Day 11:

Day 12:

Tonight our Experience Malaysia in comfort small group tour will stay on;  PENANG ISLAND - A short bus ride today will see our small group tour in Georgetown the big and busy capital of Penang island.

Georgetown has an atmosphere unlike any other place known to Baktrax in Malaysia and possibly all of S.E. Asia. It's one of our all time favourite destinations. Go back in time as you walk the fascinating streets of the state capital. Streets being the way to go much of the time as the footpaths are often owned by the resident house or buisness and as such are often blocked off for public use. Just a few of the main attractions include;



  • Penang Museum.
  • Fort Cornwallis.
  • Khoo Kongsi Chinese Clan House.
  • Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion.
  • Alpha Utara gallery.
  • Acheen Street Mosque or Hainan Temple and dozens more mosques, temples  and colonial buildings or head up to Penang Hill at 800 metres to get  some great views of the island. Do this either by a long  hard walk or take  the historical Funicular Train where a monkey or two is  often seen  scampering around the tracks. Lastly, but not the least, maybe a  budget visit to a local dentist to offset some of your holiday costs.  B.


Day 13:

PENANG ISLAND  - Meander around Chinatown, Little India or anywhere you please today But without doubt the main purpose of coming to Penang is the FOOD! Your accommodation is within a few minutes walk of a multitude of Malay,Chinese or Indian restaurants. Penang's Curry Laksa or Indian Tandoori chicken with Garlic Nan bread are just but 2 of the better known local favs. This will also be another chance to eat the local way with a  Banana Leaf Meal and it doesn't get much better than a bottomless one at Krsna Villa restaurant in  Little India


Day 14:

PENANG ISLAND  - Another free day to explore some more of the island and more FOOD! FOOD! FOOD!  Maybe some shopping at one of the modern shopping malls of Komtar, Prangin or the more upmarket Gurney Plaza. A farewell dinner will be had in the evening. B. D.

Day 15:

Our Experience Malaysia in comfort small group tour is officially over when you check out of our Penang accommodation. A flight to Bangkok is also included to connect you with your homeward flight. B.

You can now say you don't need to forego comfort to experience the  real Malaysia.   It doesn't get any easier for a genuine Asian cultural experience than with Baktrax in Malaysia?
