This short Malaysia small group tour is ideal for those in transit through K.L. and with enough time to check out K.L. & historical Melaka. Just enough of a taste to become addicted to magnificent Malaysia.

*Want to do this tour from a Bangkok transit instead? We can arrange flights to K.L. at great prices if so with possibly a night or two in Bangkok.

If you want an easy introduction to the region then Malaysia is a great choice. Welcoming, safe, hassle-free and with food unrivalled anywhere else on earth. Malaysia has it all but is still as truly Asian as it gets.

Many new and old attractions in both K.L and Melaka will enthral you. Once you visit Malaysia you will only want to return again and again as it is possibly the most addictive country in the world for both food and even more so for the friendly faces.

ACCOMMODATION = (7 nights x 3 star hotels).

Want a  short 9 day Thailand tour?

Expect to be enchanted with this short taste of Malaysia.

Expect to walk out the hotel door and be mesmerized by the choice of restaurants and street food in the middle of Chinatown. Then enjoy the laid back historical charm of Melaka.

Expect great shopping in K.L.

Expect to want to return for a feast of Malaysia next time rather than only a taste.

Day 1
Day 1

Tonight our Malaysia small group holiday tour will stay in; KUALA LUMPUR – Our short Malaysia group tour officially starts when you check into your Kuala Lumpur accommodation. A welcoming dinner will be had in the evening. D.

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 meters tall Menara K.L. (K.L. 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 nearby Central Market or Lake gardens where the K.L. bird Park; is the worlds largest walk-in aviary with almost 200 species of birds.

Day 2
Day 2

KUALA LUMPUR – Start your exploration of K.L. with an included half day city tour with a local operator to some of the major attractions The rest of the day is free and the city centre is reasonably compact which makes for an interesting meander in itself. B.


Nearby Petaling street in Chinatown has innumerable shops & street vendors. Other opportunities for shopping include The Central Market or the Royal Selangor Pewter Factory.

With the new, cheap and extensive light rail and monorail things are now a breeze to get around to see all the attractions.

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 Thaipusam Hindu festival is centred around.

Just three of the many Shopping Malls include:

Berjaya Times Square.

Mid Valley Megamall.

Pavillion KL.

Day 3
Day 3

Tonight our Kuala Lumpur & Melaka small group stopover tour will stay in; MELAKA – A short bus ride today will have our small group tour in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Melaka. B.

Melaka has one of the richest histories in all of Malaysia.

Start at Melaka’s most well known pink landmark of Stadthuys (Town Square) in the historic town centre which may be the oldest Dutch building in the East. A 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 too 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.

Once again be warned of the biggest danger in Malaysia of overdoing the hotel breakfast.

MELAKA – A free day to explore any of the above, most of which is centred around today’s Chinatown. Maybe a Banana Leaf meal in nearby Little India? B.
