Welcome to Kuala Lumpur - the bustling capital of Malaysia. After you check-in, get settled in and enjoy the panoramic views of KL’s skyline before it’s time to head to an epic location. Imagine what it would be like to sip on cocktails, whilst admiring the sunset from a heli-pad? Well, imagine no more! The Heli-Pad lounge is one of the most unique rooftop bars in all of KL and here you’ll get acquainted with the group whilst enjoying a special welcome drink.

 

As your trip is taking place during Ramadan, you will get to taste the most delicious food prepared for those practicing fasting. Now that the sun has set, get ready to attend an elaborate Ramadan buffet, where you will experience the best of Malaysian cuisine prepared by top chefs. We’ll then take you on an evening walk around the Bukit Bintang area, where you can witness the most iconic twin skyscrapers in Malaysia - the Petronas Towers. If you still have energy, we will also take you to some of the best cocktail bars in the area! 

Today we are going to learn more about Malaysian culture and the importance of Ramadan. In the morning, we’ll try “Nasi Lemak” - the national dish of Malaysia followed by an excursion towards Merdeka Square (Independence Square) and the oldest mosque in Kuala Lumpur - Masjid Jamek. We will then have some free-time to explore. Optional activities include the KL Forest Eco Park, KLCC Park, Suria KLCC Shopping Mall or simply choose to relax in the hotel's infinity pool before heading up to the top of the Petronas Towers to get a unique perspective of the city.

 

Before sunset, we will head to Kampung Baru, a 100-year old village nestled in the heart of the city. Admire the contrast of the towering skyscrapers amongst modest Malay houses. From here, we will walk around a vibrant Ramadan Bazaar that is overflowing with food and atmosphere. Walk stall to stall, selecting the food that most takes your fancy. Before eating, we will join with the locals to observe buka pausa (to break the fast) and enjoy our food together.

Today we are going to learn about Indian culture in Malaysia. We’ll start our day at a mamak restaurant to try a selection of delicious rotis for breakfast. We will then travel to one of the most visited attractions in Kuala Lumpur - Batu Caves. We’ll climb the 272 steps, avoiding cheeky monkeys along the way. Next, we will go to Brickfields, also known as “Little India”, where we'll get to devour mouth-watering banana leaf curry like the locals do - with our bare hands. After that, we'll spend an afternoon at our own leisure. In the evening, we will meet for dinner and drinks in the eclectic and hipster neighbourhood of Bangsar.

Tour Ends

Today we are going to learn about Chinese culture in Malaysia. So what a better way to kick off our day than by eating kaya (cocunut jam) buttered toast and half-boiled eggs, whilst sipping on a nice hot coffee in a traditional kopitiam. We will then head to the majestic Thean Hou Temple and take endless pictures against a backdrop of beautiful red lanterns. For lunch, we’ll learn about Nyonya heritage by eating an aromatic laksa curry in the heart of China Town. For dessert, we will grab some freshly baked egg tarts at a famous Bunn Choon restaurant.

 

We will continue walking through Kwai Chai Hong to admire some of the unique street art and heritage buildings, followed by some free time to walk around Petaling Street Market - popular for shopping and grabbing street food. We’ll meet here in the evening for dinner, ending the night by discovering hidden speakeasy bars for late-night cocktails.

It is time to head out of the capital. Today we will travel around 3 hours away from Kuala Lumpur to the luscious tea plantations of Cameron Highlands. It’s the highest point in Malaysia, at an elevation from 1135m to 1829m above sea level. This area was discovered by an English surveyor Sir William Cameron in 1855 and you may notice his influence to this day.

 

In fact, once we arrive, we will go to a traditional British country house for afternoon tea - served with crumbly Devonshire scones and a good ole cuppa.

 

We will then spend the evening enjoying the cooler weather by walking around the quaint neighbourhoods of Tanah Rata and/or Brichang before conserving our energy for tomorrow's hike.

Today we’ll venture out in a 4x4 to locate the biggest flower in the world - the Rafflesia flower, often nicknamed the “corpse flower” due to its rather pungent odour. Once at the trail head, we will trek through the rainforest with a local guide, in the hopes of locating a Rafflesia in full bloom. If we are lucky, you will be instantly enthralled by its appearance and size (often growing 3 feet in diameter). There is no fixed season of when this flower is in bloom, so we hope that we get to locate this elusive flower during our hike*

 

We will also discover the luscious cascading tea plantations at the BOH Tea Centre, which will also include a tour of the tea factory, where you will get a deeper understanding of how Malaysia’s largest tea company (BOH tea) produces their tea. You will also get another opportunity to have afternoon tea surrounded by emerald green plantations and even purchase some tea to take home to your family and friends. 

*The picture shown is from our visit to the Cameron Highlands in April 2018.

Today we set off to George Town, Penang - the food capital of Malaysia. On the way, we’ll be stopping at Ipoh to explore colourful street murals surrounding the historic Concubine Lane. For lunch, we will try Nasi Ganja, which is aptly translated to “weed rice”, due the dish being so delicious that it is simply addictive. 

 

Between Ipoh and Penang Island, we will catch a short ferry ride to Bukit Merah Orang Utan Island sanctuary, where you will come face to face with endangered Bornean orangutans for a purely magical experience. 

 

In the late afternoon, we’ll continue our journey to George Town, where we will check into our accommodation and head to Chulia Street Night Street Market for dinner. We recommend Char Kway Teow, a famous dish which originates from Penang. 

Penang has been voted as a No.1 food destination time and time again and so whilst you are here, why not learn how to prepare some authentic dishes which you can share with your friends and family?

 

With that in mind, we will be starting our day by taking part in a cooking class led by Nazlina, a Malaysian culinary author featured in the BBC Good Food, New York Times, among other noteworthy magazines. Her class will be held in a 100-year-old shophouse in the heart of George Town. You will learn how to prepare classic Penang dishes and at the end of the session, we will all get to enjoy what we have prepared. Who will be our Master Chef?

 

Did you know that George Town itself is a UNESCO world heritage site? In the afternoon, we will wander through these charming streets whilst on a street art tour. Wandering lane to lane, discovering famous murals from fellow Lithuanian artist Ernestas Zacharevic, who attributed to George Town's fame. You may also wish to ride a trishaw, ending up at the Clan Jetties of Penang - a traditional overwater settlement that was created by Chinese immigrants who came to Malaysia. You will then have some free time to explore the 130-years old Kek Lok Si Temple or 19th Century Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion with its distinctive blue exterior. We will then rejoin as a group and head to Penang Hill, where we will ride the funicular train 821m high to admire panoramic views of the Island during sunset. Ending our day with more food! Cendol anyone?

This morning you are free to do some last minute exploration in George Town before we take a short domestic flight from Penang Island to Langkawi Island. A sunny tropical paradise surrounded by pristine beaches, mountains and jungles.

 

After checking-in to our beach-side hotel, take the time to relax and enjoy the on-site facilities (including a pool and spa). You may even get a chance to check out Pentai Cenang beach, which is only a stones throw away from your room. 

 

It's simply time to relax and in the evening, we set sail on a private yacht. We will coast past neighbouring islands, whilst relaxing in the on-board jacuzzi. Enjoying music, unlimited drinks, a BBQ dinner and each-others company. Ending the day watching the sun setting into the turquoise waters of Andaman Sea. Perfect!

As this is our first day on the island, we’ll take this time to explore the area. We’ll first head to Langkawi SkyBridge - the longest curved bridge in the world. To get here, you'll have to ride a cable car suspending above the jungle canopy to a height of 660m. From here, you'll be able to appreciate the natural beauty of the island. Whilst in the area, we will also have the opportunity to cool off at Telaga Tujuh Waterfall.

 

Once back at Pentai Cenang beach, you will be able to rent beach chairs and laze the afternoon away. If you are feeling more energetic, from here you can try some watersports, such as snorkelling, jet-skiing, parasailing or banana boating. 

 

For those wanting to explore more of the island, you will also be able to rent a moped. Check out Langkawi's famous eagle statue in Kuah or discover more hidden gems in the North or Eastern parts of Langkawi like Tanjung Rhu Beach or Sandy Skulls Beach.

This is our last day in Langkawi. Island hopping anyone? We will venture to Dayang Bunting Island and visit the freshwater Lake of the Pregnant Maiden - which has a unique mountain backdrop shaped like a woman lying on her back and an interesting legend to go with it.

 

Relax on the white sand beaches of Pulau Beras Basah (Wet Rice Island) and take part in a variety of activities, such as snorkelling and swimming.  

 

You will also get a chance to see the magnificent king of the skies -  eagles. Observe as they swoop down with precision to catch their prey as they are fed.

We will return back to Pantai Cenang to enjoy an evening by the beach. We can even check out the sunset at Pantai Tengah whilst enjoying some cheap duty free beer.

We are heading back to the capital today. Once we have landed in Kuala Lumpur, we will check-in to our hotel situated in the heart of Bukit Bintang.We will have some time to chill by the pool and reflect on the time that we have spent in this incredible country.

In the evening, we will explore the nearby Jalan Alor street food market and if you haven't already had a chance, now is your time to taste the strongest smelling fruit in the whole world - durian. Will you love it or hate it?

 

Here at Jalan Alor, you will be met with stall after stall selling delicious food, followed by drinks on the lively Changkat Road. If you are a lady, be rest assured that tonight is your lucky night! In specific bars, on Wednesday evenings - ladies drink for free! Free alcohol? What a way to end this tour! Speaking of epic endings... We hope you still have some room for the most insatiable late-night snack - the one and only...Ramly Burger.

It is time to say our goodbyes and go our separate ways...at least for now! We might meet again, you never know! For now, cheers to Freedom Tours!
