Malaysia plates up the perfect gourmet getaway

Font Size:

With its mixture of bustling hawker markets, high-end dining and local specialities, Malaysia is the perfect destination for Aussies looking for a gourmet getaway.

For travellers who want to take their love of fantastic fare abroad, Adventure World has recently launched the new Flavours of Malaysia package. This seven days, six nights tour gives travellers the chance to cook up a storm in an authentic cooking class in KL, visit a tea plantation in the Cameron Highlands, sample Nyonya cuisine in Melaka, and visit the famous Gurney Drive in Penang. Priced from $2908pp*, this package gives travellers an insight into the rich culture and history that defines Malaysian cuisine.

For holiday goers who prefer to travel at their own pace, there is an endless array of gourmet options on offer.

First stop on a culinary tour of Malaysia is Penang. Time Magazine previously bestowed Penang the title of ‘Best Street Food in Asia’, while CNN recently ranked local specialty Penang Assam Laksa as the world’s seventh most delicious food. For travellers looking for the ultimate souvenir to take home there are a range of home cooking classes available. The Penang Homecooking Class provides a masterclass in Malaysian cooking, incorporating Nyonya, Chinese, Malay and Indian cuisine, in recipes passed down through generations.
