Lush Khao Sok National Park awaits. Today, you can set off to Lake Cheow Lan to take in the views while hiking or swimming in the national park. Spend tonight falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle.

Day 5 Koh Samui
Take a scenic day trip to pristine Koh Madsum, with a stop first at the colourful reefs off of Koh Taen. The views here are unforgettable, try to spot all the different kinds of marine life and explore by kayak and on foot.
Day 6 Koh Samui, Thailand to George Town, Malaysia
Gear up for a long day of travel. Ferry back to the mainland and continue by private vehicle to cross the border into Malaysia and on to George Town, Penang.
Day 7 George Town
A full day in Penang. Explore the busy streets and check out the colourful famous street art. Trust us: they make for a great backdrop!
Day 8 George Town to Chenderoh Lake
Learn about local culture (especially how to properly tie a sarong!) at this island homestay, nestled in the middle of a beautiful lake. Tonight, relax as you take in the scenery and connect with the family that runs this homestay.
Day 9 Chenderoh Lake to Cameron Highlands
Enjoy slightly cooler temperatures in the Cameron Highlands. Here, explore the well-marked trails through the lush tropical forest, visit a tea plantation, or search for the rafflesia: the world's largest flower.
Day 10 Cameron Highlands to Kuala Lumpur
Today is yours to take on. Walk around and explore, but don't skip trying the national dish of Malaysia, nasi lemak - a traditional rice dish made with coconut milk and pandan leaf. Once the sun sets, see another side to the city as you stop by the famous Petronas Towers (which light up at night) before checking out the local nightlife.
Day 11 Kuala Lumpur
You've got the whole day for exploring. Head out of town to visit the famous Batu Caves or the Orang Asli Museum. Later tonight, head to some rooftop bars for drinks and dancing, or stop by the night market and find some flavours you never knew existed. Built in 1928 as a fresh market for locals, and revamped in the 1980's as an outlet for all Malaysian handicrafts, the night market is a local institution. Make sure you don't miss it.
Day 12 Kuala Lumpur to Melaka
Take to the canals by boat, and see a different side of this old port town. Stop for some famous chicken rice at Kedai Kopi Chung Wah in Chinatown. Locals love it here; they often line up for hours to get a taste. The streets of Chinatown (also known as Jonker Walk) are also lined with Peranakan (Straits Chinese) shophouses offering their traditional cuisine, Nyonya. Explore the many temples, churches, mosques, museums, and forts.
Day 13 Melaka to Singapore
Head to Singapore today, where you can use your free time to see that famous skyline by boat or eat so much street food, you can barely walk. For a peek into the city-state's past life, wander the old streets of Little India and Chinatown.
