After some time to get settled, you’ll have a tour of the highlights of the city, an interesting mix of grand colonial hybrid architecture, epitomised by the Sultan Abdul Samed Building and the delightful railway station harmoniously sharing space with the ambitious themes of modern Islamic design, evident in the twin Petronas Towers and superlative mosques.

Today you’ll descend back to the tropical heat, travelling northward to Penang, stopping at Kuala Kangsar to visit the splendid Ubudiah Mosque and the former Sultan’s palace. Later, another stop at Bukit Mera Laketown Resort affords the opportunity to meet Malaysia’s most iconic creatures on Orang Utan Island, before reaching the coast and travelling over the 13 km bridge to Penang and your Georgetown hotel.
