Overview
Can’t decide between a tropical getaway or a city break? No problem, just visit Malaysia and experience the best of both worlds. You really can have it all inside this stunning country which boasts a skyline punctuated by minarets, skyscrapers, and lush green rainforests.  This memorable trip will start in the capital of Kuala Lumpur  where you can relish in the hustle and bustle of city life. Then be in awe of mother nature as you travel to the Cameron Highlands and then onwards to one of the oldest rainforests in the world – the 130 million year old Belum Temengor Rainforest. Finally top off the holiday by visiting the island of  Penang  – home to the vibrant city of George Town, palm-fringed beaches, and fishing villages. This package includes return flights, accommodation, and daily breakfast.

Accommodation
Live in the lap of luxury as you spend 2 nights at the E&O Residence in Kuala Lumpur . This family-friendly apartment-style hotel is a tourist’s dream as it is within a 15-minute walk of Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve and Kuala Lumpur Tower. Landmarks such as Petronas Twin Towers and Petaling Street are also within 1 mile. Then travel overland to the beautiful Cameron Highlands, where you will stay in Strawberry Park Hotel. Although it is nestled in a remote tropical jungle and mountain ranges, this resort  has so much to see and do that you will never get bored. Dine at its 7 restaurants, or take a dip in its indoor swimming pool or play a game on the squash court. It offers luxurious suites fitted with a balcony – a perfect place to sit and absorb your beautiful surroundings. Then you will travel to Belum Temengor Rainforest  and spend 2 glorious nights in Belum Rainforest Park Hotel’s  superior room. Forget all your worries as you enter the resort which sits within the peaceful rainforest. If you love to post selfies online, then you’re in luck. Guestrooms offers views of the stunning gardens and nearby lake – making it a perfect spot to snap a photo. Better still, this hotel’s package also includes free wifi so you can post as many photos of your memorable trip on social media. The venue is very tranquil, so if you want to escape from the outside world – then you can. Simply reconnect with mother nature by watching the sunrise and sunset from the comfort of your guestroom. End your trip on a high by travelling to Penang, and staying at the E&O Hotel. This is within walking distance from restaurants, shopping complexes and entertainment outlets in downtown George Town. Guests can also walk to famous landmarks such as Fort Cornwallis, the City Hall and the Penang State Museum. Hailing a taxi is fairly easy – otherwise limousine services are available for those who wish to explore the island in style.

There is little chance for boredom as the resort is just a 5 minutes drive to the Cameron Highlands Golf Course and a 10 minute drive to the lively weekend night market. Later on, you will also have an amazing opportunity to walk among one of the oldest rainforests in the world – the Belum Temenggor. Here you will spend 2 nights in Belum Rainforest Park Hotel’s superior room. You can do as much or as little during this part of your trip. Feel free to simply soak up the sunshine.
