Beaches of southern Thailand
Day 1 Arrive Bangkok: Arrive in Bangkok at anytime.
Day 2 Bangkok: Jump aboard a longtail boat or maybe a tuk tuk and explore the charismatic mix of markets and temples that Bangkok seems to throw at you! Shop til you drop, recover with a massage and top it off with some tantalising Thai cuisine.
Days 3 - 4 Krabi: The beaches of Southern Thailand are simply idyllic. Try some adventurous such as rock climbing or sea kayaking, options or, weather permitting, kick back on a longtail boat as it glides between remote beaches for a great day of snorkelling and swimming.
Days 5 - 6 Penang: The winding streets of Georgetown are best explored by bicycle rickshaw. Check out the colonial architecture of the fort, pop into the colourful Indian quarter, and visit the lively Chinatown. After all that exploring, it will be time to indulge in a meal at the waterfront night market.
Day 7 - 8 Cameron Highlands: We head for the Cameron Highlands, one of Malaysia's most famous hill stations surrounded by tea plantations and strawberry fields. The cooler weather is perfect for a relaxing walk through the cloud covered forest.
Days 9 - 10 Kuala Lumpur: Discover KL, Malaysia's premiere city. Stare up at one of the world's tallest buildings, snag a great bargain at the night market, explore the nearby Batu caves and top off your day with the some of the best food in south east asia.
Day 11 - 12 Melaka: A historic fusion of Chinese, Indian, Malay and Portugese influences, Melaka remains one of Malaysia's great destinations. With the fascinating Peranakan architecture and newly restored buildings in Jalan Jonka, you will be more than happy to stroll the streets all afternoon. Try a riverboat ride, stop in at the local historical parks, or climb the steps to St Paul's Church.
Day 13 Singapore: Boasting such landmarks as Clarke Quay, the dazzling shopping malls of Orchard Road and regal Raffles Hotel, ultra-modern Singapore also has beautiful parks and the traditional areas of Chinatown and Little India. Probably the cleanest and most orderly city in Asia, Singapore is a delight.
Day 14 Depart Singapore: You are free to depart at any time today.
