The deal
Want to see lush jungles, lounge on gorgeous beaches, wander through buzzing streetscapes and visit age-old villages in one single trip? If this heady combo of urban and nature delights sounds appealing, we recommend a visit to two stunning Southeast Asian destinations — Singapore and Malaysia! We found a variety of well-priced trips to these fascinating spots, starting at just $1,068 with airfare, hotels, and more.

See Malaysia’s best for just $1,068
Looking for a package that combines a city and beach experience? GoBundle.com offers the perfect trip: spend two nights in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur and then head off the beaten path for a three-night stay in Malaysia’s Langkawi archipelago. Rich in folklore and legends, this cluster of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea provides an ideal tropical retreat. The price starts at $1,068 for travel between August 21 and November 30 and covers air from Los Angeles or New York; airport transfers; and hotel stays with daily breakfast. Also thrown in are two excursions: a half-day sightseeing tour of Kuala Lumpur and a half-day island discovery tour in Langkawi.

Singapore & Borneo for only $2,499
The best bet for an active holiday is the Globotours package to Borneo and Singapore. Priced at a low $2,499, this eight-night adventure features air from your choice of three getaways (L.A., S.F. or N.Y.); airport transfers; midrange lodging; meals; and a variety of stellar tours. The trip explores urban delights of Singapore and the rustic highlights of Borneo, a captivating island off the coast of Malaysia. Activities include a visit to the extensive rainforest of Batang Ai National Park and cultural enrichment at the Ugat Sea Dayak Longhouses; the famous Sarawak Museum; and the beautiful Fort Margherita, a former residence of the White Rajah.

The Malay Peninsula from $2,570
We also found a fabulous deal to the highlights of the Malay Peninsula, currently on offer by Pacific Holidays. This vacation package priced from $2,570 includes 14 days and 11 nights of travel to Malaysia’s capital of Kuala Lumpur; the dynamic city state of Singapore; the island of Penang; and Thailand’s capital of Bangkok. This low price is valid for several fall departures in September and October. In addition to round-trip airfare, it includes three-star hotel stays with daily breakfast; airport transfers; and a variety of sightseeing tours and activities. Those include a dinner cruise in Singapore and a Malay dinner and cultural show in Kuala Lumpur.
