Please help with a trip to Malaysia & Sin for a solo traveller interested in Colonial Architecture & WW2/Tenko camps

Jump to last reply

I am quite new to this board (normally at the Europe site) but have decided to return to Asia next summer.

I am a solo traveller and have been to Thailand (twice) and Sri Lanka (once) - loved them both.

I have decided to go to Malaysia & Singapore because it is somewhere that has held my interest since I watched the TV programme TENKO in the UK (many years ago). However,I have googled TENKO and can't find any information on camps preserved. Can anyone help?

Also, can I please ask for a critique of my preliminary itinerary (nothing booked yet) and if there is somewhere I have missed please advise.

Day 1 UK to Singapore
Days 2-4 - Singapore (Considering the YMCA International Hostel)
Day 5 - Early bus to Malacca and stay overnight (Budget accommodation recommendations welcome)
Days 6-7 Bus to KL (Acc/ Recom as above)
Day 8 - Bus to Cameron Highlands ??
Days 9- 14 Bus to Penang. I want to vist Georgetown but would also like at the end of my trip to spend 4 days in a nice hotel where I can relax and read a few books. Is Penang the place to do this?
Day 15 - Air Asia Flight to Senai Airport and bus to Singapore Airport for flight home.

Is this doable?
