Journey through Malaysia with Tioman Island

This fascinating journey takes us through the jungle landscape of western Malaysia to the idyllic forested island of Tioman in the heart of the South China Sea. Starting in rural Penang we cross over to the beautiful highlands on the mainland; from hill station villages to tea plantations and magnificent gardens, there are many sights to explore. Boarding a riverboat we travel deep into Taman Negara National Park
searching for kingfishers along the banks and eagles over the tree-tops. We also spend time discovering the skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur, the colonial buildings in Malacca and the busy port in Singapore. A trip highlight is the visit to the mountainous Tioman Island where we can swim, snorkel or just unwind on its sandy beaches.
