Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country with a lot of charm and is very exotic. But what makes Malaysia so fascinating is its diversity. In the same country, you can explore thriving, modern cities, explore colonial architecture, relax on some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet and hike through lush green jungles.
Kuala Lumpur is known for its Petronas Towers which are the tallest twin towers in the world. But you can also enjoy a myriad of experiences. Climb any of the skyscrapers overlooking the Twin Towers and have a cocktail or a swim at the edge of the abyss.
One of the best places to admire wildlife in its natural habitat is Taman Negara National Park. Between waterfalls and canopy walks, you can see tapirs, wild boars, deer, monkeys, and countless birds and insects. In Borneo, you may be able to see even larger animals such as elephants, tigers, rhinos, and orangutans.
Malaysia preserves much of its coastline in a virgin state and its more than one hundred islands are a paradise for snorkelers and beach lovers. On the east coast, the traveler will discover paradisiacal archipelagos surrounded by crystal-clear waters, such as Perhentian, Tioman, or Seribuat. On the west coast, the choice will be difficult between the small Pangkor, with its attractive beaches surrounded by jungle, the island of Penang, or even Langkawi, the largest island of the country.
Your passage through Malaysia will be an enriching and fascinating experience, being a country full of religions and where all of them coexist in peace and harmony. You will learn about the Malays, Buddhist temples, Hindu temples, see the Batu caves, Taoist holy houses, or small tribes such as the head cutters and their ancestral rituals. They speak different languages, eat different food, wear different clothes, pray to different Gods... And yet they are all proud to be part of this diverse country.
This country has one of the richest and most varied cuisines in Asia. Thanks to Indian, Chinese, and European influences, along with indigenous flavors, the menus are full of different and tasty recipes. Nasi goereng, satay and mee goereng are the most typical Malaysian dishes. Whatever you choose, you'll get it right (but watch out for the spiciness) and, what's more, it's cheap!
