West of Malaysia in the Andaman Sea lies pure island paradise.
Touch down in Penang and discover the rich cultural history of the Malay, the roots of which meld with China, Europe and India. One can taste it in the nasi kandar from the markets, hear it in the music of the temples and mosques, and see it in the architecturally diverse townscape of George Town. Explore further out from the city to find stunning rainforests teeming with native plants and animals, and beautiful beaches that seem naturally intended for leisure and relaxation. There’s no better way to experience Malaysia than to sail through the waters of the Andaman Sea from one island paradise to the next.
Land and Sea Cruises
One could spend a lifetime cruising the coastlines of Europe and Asia, but there’s plenty more to experience on terra firma. Peregrine’s new Land and Sea Cruises deliver the best of both worlds: small-ship coastal cruising and classic Peregrine adventures on land.
