Explore Malaysia By Day...

For a day spent ashore in sultry Malaysia, these are the places to be pampered, the sights to see, the shopping districts to delve into, the activities to indulge in, and the gourmet treats to discover.

Pampering
The Datai
The benchmark for Malaysian luxury and glamour, The Datai in Langkawi is a seductive rainforest retreat with every indulgence accounted for. The Datai is also home to an indulgent health and wellness centre offering a variety of exclusive and innovative treatments, all of which make use of local fruits and oils and are administered by expert therapists.


Rasa Sayang Spa
The Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Spa is also an extravagant haven for rejuvenation, situated as it is on the crest of the lush forests of Penang, providing an exquisite, healing backdrop.


Sights
Langkawi Cable Car
For a bird’s eye view of beautiful Langkawi, hitch a ride on the Langkawi Cable Car: rising to the summit of one of its highest peaks, Mount Mat Cincang, the views are absolutely stunning and, on clear days, you can see the thousands of Thai islands dotting the ocean.


Pantai Kok
For long stretches of pale gold and glittering white sand, head to Pantai Kok island. On the north side of the island lies Tanjung Rhu, which is fringed by tall Casuarina trees and is one of the best places to kick-start a Thai island cruise while Pantai Cenang, a 2 kilometre stretch of pristine sand, is just around the corner.


Shopping
Kuala Lumpur
Retail is the lifeblood of Kuala Lumpur and that pulse goes frenetic during the thrice-yearly mega sales of March, August and December, when prices drop by up to 70 per cent on every kind of luxury good.


Bangsar
For upscale boutiques head to the suburb of Bangsar, which is bursting with fashion houses and couturiers, or to the eye-catching Lee Rubber Building.


Markets
Those craving a good haggle should head to the realm of street traders whose wily shenanigans take place all year round in Chinatown and the Central Market.


Activities
Seven Wells
Langkawi is an island peppered with stunning waterfalls: the most beautiful and accessible are the Seven Wells, known to locals as Telaga Tujuh where glittering water cascades into seven pools that are open to anyone up for a splash.


Island Exploration
Sail out and explore Langkawi’s 99 islands in order to find your own personal favourite for a day of secluded and extraordinary fishing, diving, canoeing, kayaking and beach barbeques.


Canopy Adventures
Meet up with resident adrenaline junkie Juergen Zimmerer and join him on a rainforest canopy zipline adventure that is sure to raise the pulse and enchant the eye.


Nature Trips
In order to truly experience Langkawi's lush landscapes, nature-hikes and kayak trips are the best and most popular way of soaking the gorgeous sights. Keep an eye out for the bird-life as Langkawi and its numerous exotic species make this area a twitcher’s paradise.


Fraser’s Hill
Escape the frenetic pace of Kuala Lumpur by heading up into the highland area of Fraser’s Hill. This quaint resort is perfect for bird-watching, jungle trekking, white-water rafting and much more.


Bites
Madam Kwan's
The hip, young Kuala Lumpur crowd keeps the hunger pangs at bay by heading to stylish Madam Kwans in trendy Bangsar for meals of deliciously traditional nasi lemak.
