"The St Regis Langkawi is an amazing place. It is a beautiful resort with lovely staff, fabulous. We love it! We were able to extend our stay and flights so are still here and loving it - we may even stay longer again! " — Steven and Anna, Melbourne, September 2017
"The itinerary with our customized changes worked well, the hotels and also the guides were fine especially Cheng from Malaysia. He went over and above to make our week with him excellent and took us to some great places to eat so that we experienced different types of food at very low cost. Highlights for us were the elephant sanctuary, Mt Kinabalu, an excursion to Sandakan and the longhouse visit. The day at Mt Kinabalu and Poring hot springs was enhanced by a visit to Kundasang War Memorial near Ranau where the Sandakan death march ended. For any Australian, this basic, small war memorial operated by volunteers is an incredibly moving place. This was not on our itinerary and was an extra provided by our guide Cheng. The war memorial was wonderful and of course the Orang-Utans and the sun bears were delightful and conveniently located next to each other. Also, the English Tea House was a treat! Generally Malaysia provides a very good example of all that South Asia can offer. It has big modern cities, shanty towns, rich and poor, beaches and resorts, jungles and forests, amazing animals, incredibly diverse cultures, beautiful temples and mosques, very interesting history, war history particularly involving Australia and Britain and so on. It struck us that if a traveler could only see one Asian country then perhaps Malaysia would be it!" — Mr. and Mrs. Barker, Sydney, NSW, August 2017
"I really enjoyed Sarawak! The caves in Mulu are excellent and heaps to do there. All staff in hotels in Borneo were friendly and had a lovely time. " — Mr Wallis, Perth WA, March 2017
"Our favorite experience would have to be setting off in a boat from Abai Village on our first afternoon and coming around a corner in the river to see a family of Pygmy Elephants eating on the riverbank. We were SO close to them. They were just beautiful. The guides we had were absolutely amazing and our kids loved them. They made the trip extremely interesting and fun. The natural turtle hatching was very special too. " — Cortona Family, Sydney, October 2016
