Malaysia is a multicultural country where Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists have been living in harmony for decades. From the luscious rainforests of Borneo to the crystal clear waters of Sabah, this country really does have something to offer everyone. Whilst here, you have to visit the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Kuala Lumpur, which blends perfectly into the diversity of the destination.
- Visit Kuala Lumpur – the capital city of Malaysia. This city is characterized by shining skyscrapers and colonial architecture, as well as many natural attractions like the canopy walk in the KL Eco Park and the KL Bird Park. The main area of the capital is called the Golden Triangle which comprises Bukit Bintang, KLCC and Chinatown. The most important landmark of Kuala Lumpur is the Petronas Towers (the world’s tallest twin skyscrapers). Don’t miss the Petaling Street flea market and Batu Caves, which is over 400 million years old.
- Explore the old streets of Malacca and Georgetown, also known as the “Pearl of the Orient” and widely recognised as the food capital of Malaysia, along with being the first British settlement in Southeast Asia. In Malacca you can see the imprints of British, Dutch and Portuguese forces left behind in forts, museums, churches and towers.
- Dive into the mystical waters of Langkawi, which is a popular destination in itself for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts. The best attractions in Langkawi make the most of the natural landscapes, extensive parks, and iconic structures that no first-time visitor should skip on their travel itinerary.
- No trip to Malaysia is complete without a visit to Borneo, home of incredible eco-systems and an environment for endangered species such as orangutan to roam free in the wild. Borneo isn’t only centred around the the rainforest, it also hosts the magical island of Sabah along with its fascinating culture.
