Reviews for Malaysia holiday, 14 days


review 19 Sep 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The visit to Georgetown, Penang was one of the most memorable. We enjoyed the guided bike ride around the ethnic areas and avoiding the traffic was a challenge! Noordin Mews was a very pleasant place to stay. The visit to the tea plantation and factory was special as was the guided walk in the 'mossy' cloud forest. The canopy walk In Taman Negara was also a challenge but disappointingly no animals were seen, well a couple of leeches and a butterfly.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Pack light clothes for the heat and humidity but some warm wear for the Cameron Highlands. Dress conservatively as Malaysia is a Muslim country.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local people were employed as a result of tourism and their skills were being utilised and developed. This was particularly evident in Taman Negara.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very interesting and enjoyable. We saw a lot of contrasting places in Malaysia.

Hi Helen, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your trip to Malaysia. I am so pleased you enjoyed this beautiful country as much as I did - it sounds like you had some wonderful experiences! Noordin Mews in Penang is one of my favourite hotels that I stayed in so I am glad you enjoyed it too. The bike ride is also fantastic and so informative - I love supporting the small local businesses on this too. It is really nice to see and support the local people of the country and that they really care about their jobs! Thanks again for your feedback Helen and we hope to hear from you again soon. Best wishes, Chloe
