Golden Buddha, George Town, Penang, Malaysia

Langkawi and Penang

The west coast offers a perfect example of Malaysia’s multiculturalism including intriguing delights with the islands of Penang and Langkawi.

In the far north, just before reaching Thailand, lies Langkawi with its palm-fringed beaches and renowned accommodation, from the luxurious Datai to the more laid back Bon Ton – the perfect spot to relax. Alternatively, you could retreat to the privately owned island of Pangkor Laut and stay in a stilted, overwater villa amidst the islands 300 acres.

Amy Waters

After my degree in Fine Art I didn’t really know what career I wanted or what path I would take. The only thing I knew is that having spent a summer in America it had given me the desire to explore and see as many places as possible before becoming a grown up and entering the real world.

Clare Higginson

It was my passion for languages that first encouraged me to leave the UK behind and grab my rucksack. Since then, it’s been a mixture of intriguing cultures, jaw-dropping landscapes and the wonder of seeing animals in their natural habitat that sees me continuously extending my travel wish list. I also seek adventure; exploring the deep blue or hiking a peak often winning favour. Although it’s my time horse herding in Mongolia that I regularly want to relive.
