Malaysia Yacht Charter
A very sound yacht and extremely helpful base staff
Now imagine a country where you can disconnect completely, travel at a pace set by the earth itself, and explore untouched beaches, rainforests and jungles so ancient and exotic that they are home to plants and animals found nowhere else on earth. Malaysia is that country.
