Spend a week on a palm-fringed beach in Penang, then round off your trip in Kuala Lumpur -- Southeast Asia's "capital of street food" (Financial Times) -- with this 10-night escape from Destination2. At under £500 per person, this entire holiday is cheaper than the cost of the flights alone and is up to 52% less than packaging the deal yourself.
Depart daily from London Heathrow throughout November, 2016; January-March, 2017.
It's an extra £20 per person to travel in May and June, 2017.
Holiday Inn Resort Penang is on Batu Ferringhi beach in Malaysia's Penang Island, an area which has been described as a "microcosm of the exotic east" by Lonely Planet. It is steps from the town's bustling night bazaar, and its amenities include a restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool, an oceanfront barbecue and a beach volleyball court.
The hotel is less than two miles from Penang's Tropical Spice Garden, an abandoned rubber plantation now famous for its "cornucopia of herbs, spices and decorative flora" (Rough Guides). Penang National Park, where you'll find old-growth mangrove forests, undisturbed beaches and nesting turtles, is four miles away.
Berjaya Times Square Hotel is a centrally located property in Kuala Lumpur's Golden Triangle. The hotel is connected to the Berjaya Times Square development, which contains a mall and the largest indoor theme park in Malaysia, and has three restaurants, a fitness centre and a wellness spa.
There is also a rooftop swimming pool with a skyline-view poolside bar, which boasts panoramic views of the city's minarets, domes and skyscrapers.
