Day 1 UK to Hong Kong

Our VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your overnight flight to Hong Kong.


Day 2 Hong Kong

On our arrival in Hong Kong, we transfer to our hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure.


Day 3 - 4 Hong Kong

A fusion of western and eastern life fuels Hong Kong. Ascend Victoria Peak for breathtaking views of the glittering city skyline and Victoria Harbour. Visit the Aberdeen floating fishing village. Admire the fine white sands of Repulse Bay. And shop to your heart’s delight at Stanley Market.

After an afternoon of relaxation, we include dinner followed by a cruise on the harbour and an unforgettable night-time spectacle - the ‘Symphony of Lights’.

The following day is at leisure.


Day 5 Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur

Following a free morning we take a flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s dazzling capital city.


Day 6 Kuala Lumpur

Today we drive through the Lake Gardens, stop at the National Mosque and Independence Square, the Masjid Jamek, Central Market, and the 88-storey Petronas Twin Towers.

A traditional Malay dinner and cultural show completes a memorable day.


Day 7 Kuala Lumpur to Malacca

We continue to Malacca, a historic town showcasing a medley of Portuguese, Dutch, Islamic and Chinese architecture. Enjoy a cruise along Malacca River and visit a typical Peranakan house.

We then spend a cultural afternoon at Cheng Hoon Teng Chinese temple, the oldest in Malaysia, Kampung Kling Mosque, and Bukit Cina, where over 12,000 Chinese graves are located, some dating back to the Ming dynasty.


Day 8 Malacca to Singapore

Beyond vast fields is the border with Singapore. On crossing into this sensational city-state, we head to our hotel, superbly situated on Orchard Road.


Day 9 - 10 Singapore

The National Orchid Garden, set within the UNESCO-listed Botanic Gardens, makes for a tranquil start to our exploration of Singapore.

Our morning tour also includes a stop at the Merlion statue, Chinatown and Marina Bay Sands Skypark Observation Deck, offering breathtaking views of Singapore.

A day at leisure follows.


Day 11 Singapore to Sampran

The Kranji War Memorial is a hillside cemetery that honours the men and women of the Commonwealth who died in the line of duty during World War II.

After a morning visit, we head to the airport for our flight to Bangkok and onward transfer to our family-run, eco-cultural hotel.


Day 12 Sampran

Located 32km from Bangkok, the stunning resort is set in 70 acres on the banks of the Ta Chine River. Family owned and run for over 40 years, and employing over 60 full time gardeners, this peaceful haven is the perfect place to learn about Thai culture.

We visit the Organic Farm, then sit back and relax amongst the manicured gardens or beside the pool.


Day 13 River Kwai to Bangkok

Our journey continues to the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre, a museum dedicated to the history of the Thai-Burma ‘Death Railway’, and on to the War Cemetery, the final resting place for over 6,000 allied prisoners of war.

We then take a train ride on the notorious Bridge over the River Kwai. The original wooden version of the bridge was bombed several times and no longer exists, but the adjacent steel bridge, also the subject of numerous raids, was rebuilt after the war.

Our coach takes us to a floating restaurant for lunch on a raft, before continuing to Bangkok.


Day 14 Bangkok

No visit to Bangkok would be complete without a visit to the Grand Palace complex and the sacred Temple of the Emerald Buddha, housing a fabulous Buddha image carved from a single piece of jade.

We return to our hotel for a relaxing afternoon, before a memorable dinner cruise on Bangkok’s ‘River of Kings’.


Day 15 Bangkok to UK

We transfer to the airport for our overnight flight back to the UK.


Day 16 UK

Upon arrival, your vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
