Let say you are coming from Singapore.

You can take a coach to Melaka (for historical building visit) 2D1N, then head to Kuala Lumpur for (shopping - 3D2N), en tour to Cameroon Highland for nice cool weather (Tea plantation, cactus valley, bee farm and strawberry farm) 2D1N, then head north to Penang (Food, shopping and culture) 3D2N and finally if you are interest on relaxation on beach and waterfall, you can take a ferry to Langkawi 2D1N.


Travel in Malaysia, it's adviceable to use interstate bus/coaches. It's cheap, fast and enjoyable.

Not that I discourage you on Singapore. To me, staying more than 5N in Singapore will surely bored you.
There fore, if you are planing your holiday for 3 weeks, I suggest you include Thailand into your itinenary.

I totally agree with Karloon, while you are in that part of Asia, you may as well jet over to Thailand, either Phuket or Ko Samui for gorgeous beaches and plenty to see and do at both destinations. Flights from Singapore or KL will be really cheap through AirAsia so I'd go with that as I have heard the same from people who have seen Singapore. Reply to this

3 weeks is a whole lot in Malaysia Singapore. Think you should add Indonesia/Thialand.

There are a lot of tourist attractions at Singapore. You can go to Sentosa Island, visit Jurong bird park, Night Safari, Singapore Zoo. You can also tour around the city to see Singapore's popular landmarks. Shopping in Orchard road, Suntec City, and Raffles city is also a must when you go to Singapore. hehe

You may also visit other neigboring countries such as Malaysia via bus or train. Visit this site about further details about Singapore and how to go to its neighboring countries...
A 3-week vacation is a lot for Singapore... take the chance to visit its neighboring countries for your vacation to be more worthwhile.

There's plenty to do in Malaysia! It all depends on what you have in mind - from sight seeing, shopping to adventure experiences. And it's also quite reasonable to fly around Malaysia (Peninsular & East), with timing and proper planning, of course. Do check out the following for more official information on Malaysia - Peninsular and Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.

singapore is great we are returning for the 3rd time in 4 years this time with my wifes family. 3 weeks may be to long in just one country when there are others so close and with completley different personalities. Thailand is so close also indonesia is just a short ferry ride from the east coast of singapore which also has the singapore flyer , think londons eye , east coast park food and a water park - heaven!!!


have fun Reply to this

Hi Lorna,

Malaysia very much welcomes and celebrates occassions that are non-related to Muslims as well. For that being said, rest assured you'll get to feel the Xmas spirit whether in KL, Terengganu, Sabah or even Sarawak. As for where to celebrate, it all really depends on what your interest are, i.e. outdoor sports, shopping and such. From there, you'll be sure to get plenty suggestions from travelblog-ers. Remember, all states that makes up Malaysia has their own beauty and uniqness, so it's good to plan ahead and know where you're going to set your foot on.

Welcome to Malaysia 😊

8 days is a long enough time in Singapore. I'd check out Sentosa Island, night Safari, little India on a Sunday evening, raffles, I'd think about taking a trip into Malaysia maybe Melaka as it's not too far over the border really. Reply to this
