Take a break

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MATTA FAIR -

TAKE a break from the hus­tle and bus­tle of your daily rou­tine and go on a hol­i­day to re­mem­ber. For a value for money get­away, check out pack­ages from En­ergy Hol­i­days.

One pack­age to look out for is from the 2016 Rus­sia Se­ries Group Tour, fea­tur­ing a 10D/ 8N visit to the cap­i­tal city of Moscow, St Peters­burg, Sergiev Posad and Pushkin.

Fly­ing by Air As­tana of Kaza­khstan al­lows for a visit to Kaza­khstan’s largest me­trop­o­lis of Al­maty. You will fly into Moscow and exit via St Peters­burg, trav­el­ling by high- speed train from Moscow to St Peters­burg – there is no back­track­ing of itin­er­ary and saves you more time for tour­ing in Rus­sia.

En­ergy Hol­i­days is of­fer­ing spe­cial MATTA Fair dis­count of RM300 per per­son for book­ings made dur­ing the three days of the Fair.

The tour price starts from a very at­trac­tive price of RM5,798 ( af­ter dis­count, ex­clud­ing peak sea­son sur­charges and mis­cel­la­neous charges), stay­ing at four- star ho­tels with four nights in Moscow plus three nights in St Peters­burg and one more night at Al­maty ( Kaza­khstan) on the re­turn leg en route to Kuala Lumpur.

This tour of­fers an ex­tra bonus of vis­it­ing Kaza­khstan.

The new 2016 itin­er­ary has been re­de­fined to show you more of Rus­sia as the well- planned itin­er­ary pro­vides the right com­bi­na­tions of vis­it­ing must- see tourist at­trac­tions, se­lected fa­mous churches and stun­ning parks. The pack­age in­cludes en­trance to Trin­ity St Sergius Monastery in Sergiev Posad, as­cend­ing the Moscow Os­tank­ino TV Tower to en­joy a panoramic view, visit to the Cos­mo­nau­tics Mu­seum, en­trance to Ar­mory Mu­seum in Moscow’s Krem­lin and a visit to the stun­ning Tsar­itsino Park in Moscow and Neva River Cruise ( sum­mer sea­son) in St Peters­burg.

The pop­u­lar pack­age also in­cludes full board meals with a spe­cial din­ner at the pop­u­lar Hard Rock Café in Moscow and spe­cial Rus­sian din­ner serv­ing pan­cake and red caviar.

You will have the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the po­etic and lit­er­ary ac­claimed “White Nights” in St Peters­burg dur­ing the sum­mer sea­son from end of May to end of July.

No other ma­jor Euro­pean city can ri­val this ex­pe­ri­ence or the at­mos­phere on the streets of St Peters­burg dur­ing the sum­mer months – lively, friendly, ro­man­tic and bustling with peo­ple through­out the night as well as the day.

You may also opt to visit Italy with the 8D/ 5N Italy Se­lect tour, fea­tur­ing Rome, Pisa, Florence, Venice, Verona, Mi­lan, Lake Como, Lake Lugano and Fox­town ( Switzer­land), fly­ing by Qatar Air­ways, which won the ti­tle of World's Best Air­lines of 2015 at the Sky­trax World Air­line Awards.

This tour flies into Rome and ex­its via Mi­lan with no back­track­ing of the itin­er­ary.
