Tour Overview

From urban immersion to dense jungles and stunning highlands; from colonial tea plantations to a strident island port, Peninsular Malaysia offers a vast array of sightseeing and cultural opportunities.

Singapore is often referred to as “The Little Red Dot” on the world map. Though only a small city, Singapore was once a fishing village turned into a cosmopolitan city brimming with harmonious diversity from its multicultural society. Encounters with the locals will give you a chance to experience the diverse, cohesive, nostalgic, historical and cultural aspects this city can offer.

From its not so glorious days as a humble shanty town, Kuala Lumpur has evolved into an ultra modern 21st century metropolis with Southeast Asia’s tallest skyscrapers. Stunning cityscapes and a food scene to rival Singapore’s will hold your attention long after you’ve left.

An exotic boat ride out of Kuala Lumpur transports you to the jungles of Taman Negara. Wildlife excursions, canopy walks and guided night tours put the entire ecosystem on display. A short trip north brings you to the equally impressive wilds of the Cameron Highlands. Colonial style stepped tea plantations cascade down the hill sides in the few developed areas of the Highlands.

Everything met, or exceeded our expectations!

We did not know what to expect with our trip to Vietnam, but everything met, or exceeded our expectations! The guides were both excellent, and added their own local perspective to the areas we explored. All of the included meals were excellent, and exceeded our expectations!

Our trip was fantastic!

Our trip was fantastic! We were met us at the airport in Saigon when we arrived and shuttled to the Hotel, the guide got us settled in and arranged the schedule with us for the next day. Each day we knew in advance what was planned and had enough time to relax too. Both guides (in the South and Central Regions) were very good. We also had a private driver in our van which was constantly stocked with cold bottled water and moist wipes for cooling off after every activity. In general the Hotels were all excellent and a couple were even better (Hoi-An and Victoria Chau-Doc). Both guides were flexible to our needs and very personable and accommodating. We had ample food and it was all great. On a couple of occasions the Guide in the Central Region even made adjustments to our Menu to make certain that we got better items (which we appreciated). We got Heavy rain on one day only and that was the day that we were driving back to Saigon from the Mekong delta, so we were safely ensconced in the Van. We saw a lot in our time there but we really have no complaints at all. The guides in country were excellent in keeping us on schedule without making us feel hurried. In Saigon the last night we even arranged for an extension of the Hotel room (for half a day) and a show that started at 8PM that evening. The guide arranged to pick our luggage up for us at the hotel and then come pick us up after the show at the Opera House and get us to the Airport in time for our flight back to Tokyo. If we go back again we will certainly be happy to use you again.

Though our time was short, our agent was able to include all our requested stops

A friend & I just completed a 10 day tour of Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand) that was compiled by Yampu Tours. Though our time was short, our agent was able to include all our requested stops while adding some very interesting side tours, all within our budget. Everything and everyone we encountered were great: guides, hotels, flights, train, food, tours, and service.
