What You’ll Get
A 6-day, 5-night jaunt through Bali, Indonesia’s cultural highlights; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s brightly lit streets; and the fortunes to be made at Genting Highlands’ casinos
For your first three days, you’ll encounter Bali’s high Hindu culture, manifested through a kecak dance at Pura Luhur Uluwatu; Barong dances at Batubulan; views of the magnificent seaside temple of Tanah Lot; immersions in the gorgeous water temples of Pura Ulun Danu and Tampak Siring; and a glimpse of the soaring beauty of Taman Ayun and Gunung Batur in Kintamani.
Bali is famous for its culturally-significant souvenirs: the tour lets you loose in the Galuh Batik Factory and Sukawati Art Market shopping centre.
On the fourth day of the tour, you’ll jet out to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, whose city center features some of Southeast Asia’s most daring architecture and statuary, including the Malaysian National Monument & ASEAN Garden Sculpture; the historic buildings around Independence Square; the dizzying heights of the Petronas Twin Towers; and the Islam-inspired lines of the original Kuala Lumpur railway station building, the National Mosque, Islamic Arts Centre, and Masjid Jamek (Mosque).
Make Jadi Batek Handicrafts Centre your last stop in Kuala Lumpur, before transferring to Malaysia’s gaming hotspot in the heights, Genting Highlands, hopefully with Lady Luck on your side!
