Malaysia

Unspoilt beaches, dense virgin rainforests, vibrant modern cities and a colonial past all combine to make Malaysia a delightful destination. Explore modern Kuala Lumpur, discover the historic trading port of Malacca and the oldest British settlement in Malaysia, Penang. Relax in the tea hills of the Cameron Highlands or, for escapists, the island of Langkawi offers some the finest beaches in Asia. The tropical island of Borneo, comprising of Sabah and Sarawak, is a region rich in flora and fauna and only a short flight from the mainland. Sabah is the home of the endangered Orang-utan, jungle lodges and Kota Kinabalu, one of the most biologically diverse areas of the world, whilst in Sarawak it is possible to travel through thick rainforest by traditional longboat for visits to remote tribal villages. Pettitts have led the way in designing tailor-made holidays and tours to Malaysia for over 25 years.

Customer Testimonial

It is the fifth major trip that you have organised on our behalf, all of which have been a great success. However on this occasion you have excelled yourself. It was an excellent mix of destinations and experiences. Each was unique in itself and we find it difficult to identify which was the highlight of the trip. They all were!
