(Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi)
Come face-to-fin with one of the deep blue sea’s most mysterious creatures as you extend a hand to feed the sting rays that circle your boat in the crystal waters that surround stunning Langkawi.
Despite their unusual appearance, the inquisitive sting rays are actually very friendly and will flock to your boat-side for feeding time. You’ll also cruise through eerie limestone caves and discover hidden canyons where wild monkeys, kingfishers, monitor lizards and mud crabs make up the vibrant population of bank-side wildlife. Visit Bat Cave and a fish breeding farm before taking some time out to swim and sunbathe on a remote beach and lunch at an authentic floating restaurant. Discover a very different side of Malaysia as you tour the futuristic skyline of Kuala Lumpur and connect with the city’s rich multi-cultural past that brings together traditional architecture and cultural traditions from many of the world’s major religions that have been practiced here in harmony for centuries.
Your premium level hotel will provide a bastion of peace in the contemporary heart of Kuala Lumpur’s city centre, and your luxury beach resort and spa on Langkawi provides ample opportunity for rest and relaxation as you explore the island’s pristine beaches, lush rainforests and isolated waterfalls. Your private guides will provide an engaging insight into the local cottage industry of Langkawi including traditional batik painting techniques, and reveal the cultural history of the metropolitan melting pot that is Kuala Lumpur.

"I wanted to let you know that our trip to China was great! Everybody enjoyed themselves. When planning a trip I am always concerned about the itinerary, the vehicles and the guides. All 3 of these were great. The guides were particularly good and in this case really made the trip a pleasure. Overall a great trip. Thanks for all you did."

"We just returned from our thailand/cambodia trip. It was fantastic. You did a great job. The guides were excellent as was the drivers. We loved the Victoria Hotel you selected in Siem. Wish we had more time. Thailand met our expectations but our expectations for Cambodia were low and they exceeded them. Loved the places selected for the included lunches. Certainly would use Kensington again"

"I highly recommend Kesington Tours. The planning of our trip to Cambodia was outstanding. Our advisor Alexis Mayer was unbelievably patient, knowledgeable and responsive. We planned the trip in every possible detail and Alexis was extraordinary during the whole process. Once we were in Cambodia, we had a tiny issue with the car. I was able to get in contact with Alexis right away and the problem was instantly solved. The trip itself was fantastic. Everything was very well planned and perfectly organized. The local guides and drivers were great. The hotels were very well chosen.
Great trip. I would definitely travel again with Kensington Tours."
