Singapore


Cameron Highlands


Langkawi


Influenced by the traditions of the Chinese, Malay, Indians and Europeans, these are two of the most familiar destinations in South East Asia. Easily linked by train or a short flight, and combinable with most other countries in the region, both Malaysia and Singapore offer a vibrant fusion of cultures and some of the best food in Asia.


KUALA LUMPUR Offering up a superb choice of hotel and dining options, Kuala Lumpur is home to a wealth of shops, the world famous Petronas Towers and some of the most glittering nightlife in Asia. The limestone caves at Batu also present one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India.


CAMERON HIGHLANDS One of Malaysia’s largest hill stations, these temperate highlands were first cultivated by the colonial British in the 1920s. A great place to escape the oppressive heat of the lowlands, these lush landscapes are spread over 700 sq km, offering up tea plantations and wonderful forest walks, hill tribe villages and the expansive virgin rainforests of Belum.


PENANG A winning combination of cultures and cuisines, Penang is a fascinating mix of east and west, old and new. With easy access to lovely beaches and a rich cultural heritage that includes the UNESCO setting of George Town, the city can also boast the smallest national park in the country. We recommend a stay at the Eastern and Oriental Hotel.


LANGKAWI An archipelago of some 99 islands off Malaysia’s west coast, Langkawi is the country’s most popular holiday destination. Surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea, Langkawi is the very image of a tropical paradise, with fringing reefs and golden beaches and an interior of lush, verdant jungle. We recommend a stay at The Datai or The Andaman.

It’s our experience that makes yours


SINGAPORE Whether you want to explore the city’s historical heart, wander through Chinatown and Little India, enjoy a Singapore Sling in the splendour of the Raffles Hotel, or lose yourself amongst the markets on Orchard Road, Singapore is a city of colourful and enigmatic contrasts that has something to appeal to every taste.


RAFFLES HOTEL, SINGAPORE A national monument and one of Singapore’s most famous landmarks, the exquisite Raffles Hotel is a colonial treasure that has regularly been voted one of the best hotels in the world. Its 103 suites all come with private parlours and authentic period furnishings and there are few places better suited to enjoying a ‘Singapore Sling’ than the famous Long Bar.
