This month the world’s most adored royal couple embarked on a nine-day tour of Southeast Asia and the Pacific islands. Beginning in Singapore they were welcomed to the country’s Botanic Gardens, a tribute to Princess Diana, before moving onto Malaysia, the Solomon islands and Tuvalu. Their visit to Malaysia was no doubt a highlight however, encompassing lush tropical rainforests, Orangutans and Kate’s first ever public speech outside the UK. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also visited the commonwealth War Cemetery, met the king of Malaysia and attended a traditional tea party with the British High Commissioner.
Will and Kate’s packed schedule on their whistle-stop tour demonstrates the true diversity of Malaysia, and will no doubt raise awareness of the country and its potential as a great holiday destination among the British public. Although the average holiday maker may not be able to meet the king, couples and families can certainly emulate at least some of the royal couple’s visit as well sampling the unspoiled beaches, admiring the beautiful architecture and experiencing the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur.
