- This was a really great trip, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Malaysia is really interesting, the people are very friendly, and the food is wonderful. The tour leader (Mazlan) and driver (Arifin) were exceptional - very informative, good fun, and really helpful and flexible. The time in Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, the Belum Rainforest and Penang was great. In those places, the balance between organised activities and free time was good. The organised activities were very enjoyable, and the tour leader gave us lots of good suggestions for things to do in our spare time/where to eat etc. But the last 3 days of the tour, in a beach resort town in Langkawi, with no organised activities, would have been really boring if the tour leader had not been so helpful in arranging visits for us. Penang and Melaka were much more interesting than Langkawi, and we didn't really have time to see everything there - so the tour would probably be better if it spent a little bit longer in Penang and Melaka, and less in Langkawi. And also better if there were some organised activities in Langkawi. But overall, it was a really great trip, and I would certainly recommend it.
