Malaysia and Hong Kong have teamed up to provide the ultimate Asian experience by crafting a new trip package.

“We are very proud of this partnership because it provides visitors a chance to explore two diverse and exciting countries,” said Amin Yahya, vice president of tourism Malaysia, Los Angeles. “We hope to give travelers the trip of a lifetime between multi-cultural Malaysia and bustling Hong Kong. Since 2007 is Malaysia’s 50th anniversary of independence, our entire nation is in celebration, making this year the best time to visit.”

Prices start at $1,827 for eight days and six nights, including fuel surcharge and taxes. The trips, courtesy of Ritz Tours, offer weekday departure on Cathay Pacific Airways out of Los Angeles and San Francisco, and offer luxury accommodations based on double occupancy.

This new itinerary embarks in Hong Kong with a half-day city tour, including visits to such sites as Stanley Market, Aberdeen’s Floating Community, Repulse Bay and a cable-car ride up to Victoria Peak. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital, travelers can take in the Petronas Twin Towers (the world’s tallest twin structures), King’s Palace, Sri Perdana, Independence Square (where the country’s 50th anniversary will be celebrated on Aug. 31), Batu Caves and more.

The tour allows time for clients to experience the eclectic culture and cuisine, surroundings and world-class shopping available in both destinations.
