A spellbinding Malaysian adventure, with orangutans, a mangrove tour, Kuala Lumpur's bright lights and Borneo's shores – includes all travel and tours

Out-of-this-world Malaysia has so much to offer the adventurous visitor – steamy jungles, fascinating wildlife both at sea and on land, buzzing cities and tranquil paradise beaches. Enjoy all this and more with this action-packed holiday, beginning in Kuala Lumpur, moving on to Borneo’s Sadakan for a raft of jungle, river and wildlife experiences, as well as a stay on Kinabatangan’s peaceful riverside. You’ll end your trip on the tranquil shores of Kota Kinabalu.

Fly to Kuala Lumpur, where you’ll be whisked to upscale Traders Hotel by Shangri-La for a three-night stay. While here, you’ll have two full days to explore the city at your leisure – maybe scale the iconic Petronas Twin towers, wander Chinatown or go shopping.

Next, fly into Sandakan on Borneo’s north coast, where you’ll stay overnight at Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan. The next day, it’s on to Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, where you’ll walk in the tropical forest, witness orangutan feeding and watch endearing youngsters frolicking in the nursery. Later, continue to the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre, where you can spy these delightful creatures enjoying their natural habitat in the enclosed forest.

You'll then cruise through a magical mangrove forest to the Lower Kinabatangan River Sanctuary, where you’ll check in at Abai Jungle Lodge for an overnight stay by the river. Enjoy a mystical pre-sunset wildlife cruise and after-dark firefly display. After dinner, there’s a guided nighttime jungle boardwalk to seek birds, snakes and insects – not for the faint-hearted! Next morning, a river and wildlife-spotting trip to Pitas Lake awaits (you may spy an elephant family...), following which you'll join in on a tree-planting project and lunch with the locals.

You’ll then cruise upriver again, along the way searching for probiscous monkeys, birds and other wildlife. Arrive at Sukau and check in at the Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge for a night. Enjoy a late afternoon trip up the narrow Menanggul river for up-close-and-personal nature spotting. Wake to the calls of gibbons or hornbills, before returning to Sandakan.

Jutting out into the cerulean blue of the South China Sea and overlooking a national marine reserve, the five-star Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa sits serenely on the northwest coast of Borneo in Kota Kinabalu, the capital of the Sabah State. With four nights here, visit the base of Mount Kinabalu to gaze up at its jagged peak and try out scuba diving and snorkelling off the coast, where you're sure to see some stunning marine life. The hotel's Chi Spa was voted 'Best Spa in Malaysia' by SpaFinder, the dining is refined and varied and the wellness facilities are top notch, with a health club and a huge outdoor pool.
