Day 2 Kuala LumpurAfter breakfast, spend the day free at leisure to explore the
city. The metamorphosis of this capital city, started not long ago (1857) when a bunch of Chinese started to set around the edges of the rivers Klang and Gombak in search for tin, naming the place Kuala Lumpur “muddy confluence”. In the first settlement many died of malaria and other tropical disease due to the extreme conditions in the jungle. But soon the tin business attracted many others and the one that one day was a small riverside settlement become a 21th century blooming metropolis.
Day 3 Kuala Lumpur - Cameron HighlandsToday, you continue on to Cameron Highlands, located at 1,542 metres above sea level, famed for its tea plantations, strawberry farms and cool temperatures. The drive is approximately 3.5 hours on well-paved highway and country roads. As you head higher into the highlands, the road will become more winding and you will get wonderful views of the rainforests as you climb higher and higher. Upon arrival, check in and the rest of the day is free at your leisure to enjoy the cool temperate of Cameron Highlands or it back in a local café and enjoy some tea and scones. Overnight Cameron Highlands.

Your tour begins with a visit to Mount Brinchang, the highest peak (6,666ft.) in Cameron Highlands. Take a walk through the mossy rainforest before cruising down the hill to view the most scenic tea plantation, the Sungai Palas Boh estate, which is regarded as the largest and best known tea station in the region. You will cruise through the ‘green carpets’ of Boh plantations – the pioneer of tea growers in Malaysia. Take a tea break after the brief guided tour of the Boh tea factory. After the refreshing tea break, visit the butterfly farm (entrance fees NOT included). Back to the hotel.

Kindly reach the bus terminal located at Tanah Rata Town, 30minutes prior bus departure. Arrive in Penang; make your own way to your stay. Overnight in Penang. Penang is an island near the Straits of Melaka which has developed over 500 years of trading and cultural exchanges between East and West. The historic capital of George Town represents the British era from the end of the 18th century. Wander through the heritage backstreets to discover the street art, temples, mosques, and above all the delicious Indian and Chinese food where Penang is known for. Out of the town you will find the impressive Kok Lok Si Temple, and the jungle forest at the smallest National Park in Malaysia. The beautiful beach locations give you an opportunity either to relax and unwind, or to enjoy all kinds of water sports.
Day 6 PenangAfter Breakfast, gather to meeting/starting point for your daily activity. Too big to explore on foot; to special to explore from a car... the bicycle (or trishaw) is the perfect way to discover Penang's Heritage City of George Town. The excursion starting point is at the Tanjung City Marina (beside the Jetty Bus Terminal) where you will meet your guide for the day. From here, you will move on to explore the hidden gems of George Town from the Clan Jetty (the dragon boat races are often held even to this day), Cheah Kongsi, Hock Teik Cheng Sin Temple (with stories of Penang's secret societies), the Malay Mosque of Lebuh Acheh, learn the traditional method of making joss sticks used in temples. You haven't experienced Penang until you've tried the food. (Really! Ask any Malaysian what is the first thing they think about when they think of Penang... the first answer is usually 'FOOD!'). Along the way, you there will be several stops to try the local foods. Taste some of Penang's Traditional Indian-Muslim Hawker food staff for breakfast. For an early lunch, enjoy some Chinese fried noodles (Char Koay Teow) or Chicken Rice from a Chinese Hawker stall. Your final stop will be back at the Tanjung City Marina.
