LAKE BLED & PORTOROZ, SLOVENIA – 27th June – 4th July 2017 & 4th-11th July
Lake Bled is every bit as lovely in real life as it is in pictures. With its emerald-green lake, picture-postcard church on an islet, a medieval castle clinging to a rocky cliff and some of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps and the Karavanke as backdrops, Bled is one of Slovenia’s most popular resorts. Enjoy our 4* Hotel Jelovica, wonderful optional excursions, sunbathing and swimming at the Lido of Lake Bled. Following a short drive for a visit to the capital Ljubljana we will continue to our superb resort of Portoroz. Stretching around a sweeping bay Portoroz, a tiny pinch of the Mediterranean, offers a surprising wealth of attractions. The name meaning ‘port of roses’ is a reflection on a combination of aromas – sea, wind, salt, palms, evergreen plants and roses – all words associated with this resort in the heart of Europe. Enjoy time at leisure to wander along the seafront soaking up the Mediterranean atmosphere and shop for local souvenirs. Our 5* spa hotel Grand Hotel Portoroz is situated right on the beach.
Kuala Lumpur & Malacca – 28th October – 4th November 2017
Kuala Lumpur (or KL as it’s fondly called) is the capital city of Malaysia, boasting gleaming skyscrapers, colonial architecture, charming locals, and a myriad of natural attractions. Divided into numerous districts, its main hub is called the Golden Triangle which comprises Bukit Bintang, KLCC and Chinatown. KL is widely recognized for numerous landmarks, including Petronas Twin Towers (the world’s tallest twin skyscrapers), Petaling Street flea market, and Batu Caves, which is over 400 million years old. We will be staying at the wonderful 5 star Renaissance Hotel situated within the Golden Triangle.
Expansive shopping malls like Pavilion KL and Suria KLCC are also among the biggest tourist attractions in the city, plus, if you need more reason to love Kuala Lumpur, there is the abundance of gastronomic delights – with thousands of hawker stalls, cafes, and restaurants serving every imaginable type of delicacies.
We will then spend two nights in Malacca, a Malaysian state on the Malay Peninsula’s southwest coast. The charming capital, Malacca City, has a colonial past seen in its preserved town centre, the site of 16th-century, Portuguese St. Paul’s Church. It’s also home to Christ Church, built by the Dutch in the 18th century. Next to Christ Church in Red Square is the Stadthuys, the Dutch-era town hall now housing a museum of Malaccan history and ethnography.
