A motorcycle tour of Malaysia among different cultures and natural paradises
Malaysia: the name alone brings back memories from when, as kids, we were dreaming of the Orient, the warm waters of the South China Sea, sailing adventures filled with pirates, colonial mansions in Sarawak and crimson sunsets over the Strait of Malacca.
Well, Malaysia is all that, and much more.
To know Malaysia is to love Malaysia: a bubbling, bustling melting-pot of cultures and religions, where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. Multiculturalism and biodiversity make Malaysia a natural paradise and a cultural and gastronomical destination, home to hundreds of colorful festivals.
Nature reigns supreme over Malaysia: a Country that is as diverse geographically as it is culturally. Tall mountains reach for the sky while their rainforest-clad slopes sweep down to immense floodplains, bustling with forest life. From cool, high-altitude hideaways, down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves. For the perfect adventure, full of surprises, the time is now, the place is Malaysia.
The GIVI Explorer will experience Malaysia in full.
Starting from the capital Kuala Lumpur, they will first visit the headquarters and production units of GIVI Asia.
From there they will ride to Ipoh, to vist the Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan and Kellie’s Castle.
They will then visit the Belum rainforest and the manmade Tasik Temenggor lake, dotted with hundreds of islands. From the lush rainforest the Explorers will then ferry over to the sandy beaches and crystal-clear water of Taaras Beach on Redang Island.
In the following days there will be stops to see Malacca City and its treasures: A’Famosa Fort, St. Paul’s Church, The Stadthuys and Christ Church.
On the 7th day of the 2019 GIVI Explorer Tour, the participants will experience a very unique event: a race in the heart of the jungle, called Rimba Raid. One of them will actually register to race it, while all the others will be part of the support team.
After the Rimba Raid, the Explorers will continue their ride that eventually is going to take them back to Sungai Lembing, Mat Daling before returning to Genting Highlands in Kuala Lumpur.
A total of 11 days for more than 2500 km across one of the most exciting and magical areas of all Asia!
