The first stretch will lead you out of the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur towards some of the best back roads in Malaysia which will be followed by a climb up towards Fraser’s Hill. The route will be demanding. However, it will also be very rewarding as you will get some of the best views of the country.

The first day will see you cover some 180 kilometers and gain 5,000 feet in altitude. You will be spending the night in Fraser’s Hill which is a mountain village known for its highland rainforest and extensive birdlife.

Day 2: Fraser’s Hill to Cameron Highlands (200 kilometers / 125 miles)

You will leave after breakfast from the hotel and head from 5,000 feet from sea level and back up to 5,200 feet on some visually stunning mountain roads. The highlands are famous for their tea plantations, strawberries, and nature trails, all of which is on the itinerary!

Day 3: Cameron Highlands to Penang (260 kilometers / 162 miles)

You will leave the highlands after lunch and head from 5,200 feet back to sea level. You will have a mix of curvy mountain roads, highways, and the crossing of South East Asia’s longest bridge at 24 kilometers in length.

Nicknamed the “Pearl of the Orient,” Penang is famous for its soft sandy beaches and its vibrant nightlife. It is also fondly known as the food capital of Malaysia. Penang is a must-see destination while visiting Malaysia. As night falls, you will head to the party district for drinks, dinner, and some good music!

Day 4: Explore Penang

On day four, you will relax with a late breakfast and then head out to Penang Hill where you will take a train ride up to the hilltop for some 360-degree view of Penang Island. There, you will indulge at one of the many bistros for lunch. Those who are interested can ride to the beach for some swimming and water sport activities. You will end the night early as you will have an early start the next day.

Day 5: Penang to Tok Bali (370 kilometers / 230 miles)

It will be the second longest leg of the journey on a road that is popular with motorcyclists for its winding path through pristine conservancy. The road will pass through the forest reserve of Malaysia and if you are lucky enough, you will see elephants, deer, leopards, and wild boars!

The road will take you from the west coast to the east coast which is home to some of the best beaches of the country. You will arrive at the resort in time for a barbeque dinner at a private beach.

Day 6: Tok Bali to Perhentian

You will depart Tok Bali and take a short boat ride to the nearby Perhentian Island. Imagine crystal-clear waters reflecting turquoise skies and perfect for diving and snorkeling. Imagine jungles thick and fecund and beaches with blindingly white sand. At night, there are beach bonfires and phosphorescence in the water which illuminate the velvety black fabric of darkness. There are a myriad stars are mirrored above. The Perhentians offer all that and more.

Day 7: Relax in Perhentian

Relaxing and soaking up the sun is what you will do on day seven as you head out for island hopping and snorkeling in crystal clear waters. For those who are a bit more adventurous, there is scuba diving as well. You will end the day with some drinks and a barbeque dinner.

Day 8: Perhentian to Taman Negara (415 kilometers / 258 miles)

It will be the longest ride of the tour and so you will take the first ferry out of Perhentian Island and head to the mainland to collect your motorcycle. Then, you will ride to the world’s oldest rainforest. Taman Negara is a vast national park. It encompasses a sprawling tropical rainforest that is said to be 130 million years old.

Kuala Tahan, the main entry point, is a base for the nearby canopy walkway, river trips, and treks through the jungle to the top of Mount Tahan. The park is home to tigers, macaques, and birdlife, as well as the enormous flowers of the Rafflesia plant.

Day 9: Explore Taman Negara

After breakfast, you will walk on the world’s longest canopy walkway, 530 meters long, and 40 meters above ground. It is a must-do activity in Taman Negara and one of the most memorable memories for you to bring home. Enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of flora and fauna along the walkway.

You will have lunch at one of the floating restaurants of Taman Negara. Following which, you will take a speedboat ride upstream through the rapids to go see the aborigines of Malaysia. As night falls, you will head out and trek into the rainforest to observe the some of the nocturnal animals.

Day 10: Taman Negara to Putrajaya (270 kilometers / 168 miles)

The first stretch will lead you out of the rainforest towards open highways. You will ride towards Kuala Lumpur and through some city roads to reach your destination. Built on an expansive marshland and former oil palm estate, the city spans an area of almost 5,000 hectares and lies 25 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur.

Putrajaya takes over the administrative functions of the capital city Kuala Lumpur and is part of the Multimedia Super Corridor project of the Malaysian government.

Day 11: Putrajaya to Melaka (180 kilometers / 112 miles)

The ride from Putrajaya will be along a coastal highway. At its center is Jonker Street, Chinatown’s main thoroughfare. It is known for antique shops and its night market. Melaka has transformed itself from a faded port city into a strutting tourist hub and its kaleidoscope of cultures makes it one of Malaysia’s most irresistible weekend away.

The trick is finding the time to sample flavors from Peranakan to Pakistani, roam from Chinatown to the Chitty village, and go gallery-hopping and shopping.

Day 12: Melaka to Kuala Lumpur (210 kilometers / 130 miles)

It will be time for the last stretch of tarmac with Nomad Motorcycle Adventures. The ride back from Melaka to Kuala Lumpur will be a scenic route which has a mix of back roads and highways. As always, all good things come to an end and so the time will come for you to fly back home.
