Asia in a nutshell – Perhentians and tea plantations

From 1300 eur

Idyllic beaches, tea plantations, orang-utans, impassable thickets of jungles, tropical rambutans and durians -– all these await you in Malaysia to the accompaniment of one of the world’s richest cuisines.

The best way to sum up the country is often repeated by the locals: “Malaysia, truly Asia”. Malaysia represents the Asian spirit in a nutshell, with its lush jungles and paradises of white beaches along with the tea plantations and hundreds of exotic fruits. In this natural environment, you'll discover the cultural mix of Malay, Hindu and Chinese traditions, cuisines and customs. Let your journey begin!

Flight from Europe to Kuala Lumpur.


Cosmopolitan Kuala Lumpur

Arrival at Kuala Lumpur, the pride and glory of Malaysia. It's first and foremost a melting pot of Malaysian, Hindu and Chinese culture. A Madras breakfast, a Hong Kong lunch and a Malaysian dinner? In Kuala Lumpur this is the norm.

For breakfast we recommend dim sum -– steamed dumplings cooked in bamboo pots from the early morning. After such a meal, you'll have enough energy to climb the Petronas Towers until recently the tallest building in the world. The view from the top is unforgettable!

In the evening you transfer to the Perenthian Islands.


Paradise Perenthian Islands

You now begin a week of sweet laziness on these tiny islands in the Gulf of Thailand. If in Kuala Lumpur you were being woken up by the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, here in the morning you will only hear birdsong, the croaking of frogs and the lap of the waves on the shore. There are no roads or cars on the island and the whole piece of land can be crossed on foot in a few hours. Your only dilemma will be whether to dive, swim, snorkel, play volleyball, lay down on the soft sand or search for monkeys in the jungle. The choice is yours! :)


Tea Fields

After a week of working hard on your suntan, you leave your tropical heaven to reach the Cameron Highlands in the Malaysian interior. The region is renowned for its tea plantations originally founded here by British settlers. It's eternally spring here, so you can spend endless delightful hours wandering through the fields, butterfly farms, plantations of orchids and discovering tropical fruit you may never have even heard of! Try to spot the rafflesia –a plant that sports the biggest flowers on Earth.


Farewell to Kuala Lumpur

Return to the hotel in Kuala Lumpur. In Chinatown you'll have a last great chance to go on a shopping spree we recommend the famous Malaysian batik as a souvenir. In the bazaar you'll also be able to find all kinds of articles from Gucci purses to barbecued pig intestines. :)


Back to Europe


Flight from Kuala Lumpur back to Europe.


The above travel plan is just an example of what you might expect when travelling with Planet Escape. We tailor each travel plan to the individual client’s needs and we carefully select the right beach, accommodation, activities and the length of stay to suit your individual requirements.


Kuala Lumpur

Our favourite place to stay in Kuala Lumpur is a small cosy hotel in the heart of vibrant Chinatown. Here you will find everything necessary for a good rest after the long flight to Malaysia –a homely atmosphere, quiet rooms, super comfy beds, etc. All Chinatown's stores, restaurants and bars are just a stone's throw away, as is the metro station (only 300 metres from the hotel). This is just the perfect place to stay when you want to explore Kuala Lumpur to the fullest. :)

Bungalows on the Perenthian Islands

Heavenly nights in stylish wooden bungalows just a couple of minutes walk from the beach. :) The resort is situated in an emerald tropical garden behind which a coconut palm grove begins. Stylish furniture, clean bathrooms, hot water and the local restaurant serving delicious dishes guarantee an unforgettable stay on the island.

Cameron Highlands

You will be staying at a backpacker hotel just a few minutes walk from the centre of Tanah Rata. With the international vibe of the place, excellent food, tea and orchid plantations just a stone's throw from here could it get any better? Yes, we think so – it is also the perfect location to go trekking or check out the nearby bars and restaurants.


We consider Malaysian cuisine to be one of the best in the world. Apart from a perfect mix of Malaysian, Hindu and Chinese traditions, it's also renowned for its freshness and diversity of produce used. A Malaysian friend of ours who visited Europe recently summed it up very well– she said she was not so poor as to have to eat frozen prawns, canned coconut milk or the same soup for the second day running. :) That is what you would probably hear from the majority of Malaysians. It's easy to get lost among the host of Malaysian specialities and flavours, so before your trip, we will equip you with a guide book to the local curries, noodles, vegetables, fruit and what-not.
