Itinerary

Day 1: KICK START IN KUALA LUMPUR

Touch down in Kuala Lumpur and welcome to the buzzing capital city of Malaysia. Look out to the lively blur of city life as your private transfer whisks you to your boutique hotel in KL, knowing you’ll soon be immersing yourself in this vibrant scene come evening. The city’s origins began in 1857, when a small mining town sprawled into a booming city during the Industrial Revolution’s hunger for raw materials. Attracting Malays from nearby villages, British businessmen, Chinese labourers and Indian immigrants, Kuala Lumpur grew into the exotic mix it is today. Here you’ll find the largest and most developed city in the country, with soaring skyscrapers piercing the sky along with glitzy hotels, colonial buildings and authentic food stalls down at street level. After freshening up at your hotel, we will head into the city to explore its pulsating nightlife. Soak in the energy of the streets as your expert Pack Leader brings to life this nocturnal hub. From swanky cocktail bars to dynamic nightclubs, get a flavour for this diverse city after dark. Here you can get to know your fellow Flashpackers over welcome drinks in the capital, knowing a whole lot of awesome adventure awaits.

Day 2: A FLAVOUR OF LOCAL LIFE

Rise and shine in Kuala Lumpur, ready to taste your way around the capital. We’re looking beyond the tall buildings and fancy exteriors to get a delicious flavour of authentic Malaysian cuisine. For the next 3 hours, you will be led on a flavour-packed tour of KL’s favourite foodie hotspots, seeing where locals go to get the best food in town. Enjoy this glimpse of local life off the tourist radar as you walk down backstreets in search of amazing local delicacies. We’ll stop by Brickfields, also known as Little India, where you may try dishes such as sizzling yam and sweet potato fritters, Indian food served on banana leaves and traditional tea-time snacks such as vade and curry puffs. You can also satisfy your sweet tooth with Malaysian’ sugary morsels like fresh banana fritters or cendol with its exotic combination of shaved ice, plum sugar, kidney beans and coconut milk jelly. There are also the culinary delights of Chinatown to enjoy, where you can tuck into spicy noodles with refreshing lime juice and amazing Chinese pancakes. Then for a boost of caffeine, we’ll visit an old-school coffee shop for local coffee served with kaya toast and coconut jam. Feeling refreshed and well fed, the rest of the afternoon is then free time to explore KL. The iconic Petronas Towers are well worth seeing in all their 88 storey splendour, or you could make the most of the mega-sized shopping malls here. There’s also the Central Market for more authentic handicrafts, or simply stroll along the banyan-tree line streets and discover local parks and temples- do whatever you please.

Upon arrival, you can explore the colourful sights of this UNESCO World Heritage City, with its awesome display of boutique galleries, edgy street art and colonial architecture. This afternoon, we’re going off the beaten path and heading out of the city on a three hour cycling ride through the Malacca countryside. Saddle up and prepare for an afternoon pedalling through traditional Malay villages and rubber and palm oil plantations. Look out for monkeys in the swaying palm trees along the way, with your guide stopping to show you local herbs such as lemongrass, citronella, turmeric, curry leaves, galanga and tropical fruit trees. Depending on the season, there may also be the serene charm of paddy fields to cycle past as you enjoy this glimpse of rural Malaysian life. You’ll be dropped off back at your hotel where you can freshen up and relax. This evening we’ll be dining at a local restaurant where you can tuck into a well-deserved dinner- sit back and enjoy.
