A potent mix of culture, history and the exotic await you in Malaysia and Singapore. There’s much to explore and luxury options to enjoy in these two Southeast Asia countries which feature a wealth of festivals and events throughout the year.
Whether you want to experience the excitement of the capital city, Kuala Lumpur, the peace and tranquillity of colonial Melaka or unusual events like the Rainforest World Music Festival, you’ll enjoy a unique vacation experience in Malaysia. The country is in two parts - Peninsular Malaysia (north of Singapore) and Eastern Malaysia (the northern part of the island of Borneo) – both offering travelers a range of vacation options.

Nature can be enjoyed right in the heart of cosmopolitan Singapore! There are nature reserves, parks, zoos and an outstanding aquarium so you can experience nature both on and off the beaten track. Visit Jurong Bird Park with 380 species and the world’s largest walk-in lory flight aviary at over 9 stories high.
Malaysia offers excellent spots for hiking, water sports, jungle trekking, mountain climbing and viewing wildlife. Spectacular National Parks include the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center and the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary to give you an idea of how exotic the country is.
For travelers, Malaysia and Singapore are certainly two of the jewels in the crown of Southeast Asia.
