An ultimate Malaysia trip, with a super-plush Shangri-La city stay, wildlife excursions and a dreamy island hang-out - travel included

No one image can define Malaysia, from the cloud-piercing, futuristic skyscrapers and ancient temples of the bustling capital Kuala Lumpur, to the deep and dense tropics and tranquil white-sand beaches of Borneo - its wild charm is unrivalled. On this enviable holiday, you'll bag yourself both of these spellbinding destinations, plus enviable island beach chilling in exotic Langkawi and heartwarming visits to orangutan, bear and monkey sanctuaries.

Your trip begins at the five-star Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Overlooking the city, this tranquil retreat features lush tropical water gardens, a labyrinthine maze, eight restaurants and bars, a spacious decked swimming pool and a health club complete with steam rooms, Jacuzzis and saunas. With all this, it unsurprisingly ranks among Malaysia's top 25 hotels as a 2017 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice pick.

From this extraordinary base, you'll set off to explore the best of this captivating city on a morning tour that reveals the National Monument, King’s Palace, National Museum, Independence Square, Sultan Abdul Samad Building and Kuala Lumpur City Gallery. You'll round off this sightseeing splurge with an Insta-worthy snap at either the Petronas Twin Towers or the National Mosque.

The pretty town of Sandakan in Borneo is your next port of call, where the Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan offers unparalleled bay views and top-notch facilities. On an eye-opening, full-day animal experience, you'll meet man's closest relatives - orangutans - and learn about their rehabilitation back into the wild at the the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre, before a walk through the bloooming life-filled Tropical Lowland Dipterocarp Forest of Borneo. You'll also get to witness rescued sun bears thriving at the Sun Bear Conservation Centre and marvel at more mind-blowing faces at the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary.

Slinking off to the beach for your final seven nights, you’ll find yourself among a cluster of wooden chalets at Langkawi’s Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa. Behind its traditional low-rise Malay village design on the white sand shores of Cenang Beach, this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning resort is full of five-star luxuries, including two free-form swimming pools, a selection of watersports, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a spa. Add in lively drinking and dining choices and you'll find yourself falling into a state of unrestrained bliss and relaxation right up until you return home.
