      An unique riding experience for the 2-wheels lovers among st culture, history, cuisine and nature of the Malaysian Peninsula, an area which has been influenced by the trade between Asia and Europe since centuries. Places such as Cameron Highlands and Belum have been modified by the British colonizers  who built the roads connecting those territories once isolated in the middle of the jungle. On the other hand, coming to Malaysia without visiting its forests is a missed occasion to know the country in its complexity. In the last few years Belum National Park has become a place of research and study for no-profit organizations and an eco-friendly tourist destination.

      During the tour you will spend 3 nights in Kuala Lumpur, one in Cameron Highlands, 2 in Belum and 2 in Georgetown and all the accommodations are included. The ride starts in Kuala Lumpur, the bustling and modern capital of Malaysia, and ends in George Town, the town once capital of the former British settlements on Penang island – an interesting arrival destination  from both a cultural and architectonic point of view, as well as for the fact you can have a coast-to-coast bike tour of the island.

      Please note that a minimum number of five participants is necessary to organise the tour. You may choose a bike between the following: Kawasaki Versys 650, Yamaha XJ6 Diversion, Honda CB500X or similar models. All the bikes come with 2 saddle bags or a back one, plus a basic tool set. Any of the motorbikes is covered by an insurance – the cost of which and the bike itself is included in this offer. The insurance is a basic liability one covering  third party, fire and theft. We’d recommend you to subscribe a separate travel insurance policy before coming to Malaysia which covers sports activities such as motorbike driving.

      All foreign licenses are valid to be used in Malaysia within your social visit period. Your license however must be at the appropriate level to ride our motorcycles in accordance with its cubic capacity. International license is not a must but a plus point to have especially if your license is not written in English. If you’re stopped by the police, have your passport and license ready for inspections. At road blocks, lift up your visor (especially if they’re tinted) to show that you have nothing to hide.

      The fuel isn’t included in the package, so it will be at your own expenses – please consider fuel prices are quite low in Malaysia, an oil rich country. Upon request you can have a vehicle with mechanic on board during the tour.

      Regarding the accommodation and hotels, these are included – while booking we can further assist you choosing what  better suits your needs and budget in any of the stop over during the trip. However, in Belum only a single resort is available. You will have the same guide and tour leader from the beginning till the end of your tour.

      We recommend to have with you: suitable motorcycle gear, such as motorcycle riding suits,  helmet, boots, and all which you usually wear when riding in your country, shoes and outfit for the forest, a mosquito repellent, a raincoat (a disposable one will do), a hat, swimsuit and sunscreen.
