Hi SmitaSCHEDULING AND FOCUS OF SINGAPORE-MALAYSIA TOUR
3-4 days in Singapore sound a comfortable duration to see the main sights.
However, trying to pack Kuala Lumpur, Genting Highlands, Penang and Langkawi in 6 days is simply too ambitious. You end up with a lot of travelling and little time to see each place properly.
For something slightly different from Singapore, I recommend that you spend the Malaysian leg of your vacation in Penang and Langkawi.
Your can spend 3 nights in Singapore (24-27 May) and then on the 4th night (27 May) take a night bus from Beach Road in Singapore and arrive in Penang on the morning of Day 5 (28 May).
