Cosmopolitan capital Kuala Lumpur, scenic tropical islands and the jungles of Borneo combine to create a great sense of variety, akin to multiple countries in one, populated by a blend of Malays, Chinese, Indians and indigenous groups.

Malaysia’s rich cultural heritage, huge variety of annual festivals, traditional architecture and rural crafts are omnipresent, with its many pockets of ethnicities, religions and landscapes all united by its superb food culture. From the Chinese-Malay ‘Nonya’ fare, Indian curries, Chinese buffets, Malay food stalls and Dayak specialities plus some impressive Westernstyle food, visitors will rarely be left feeling unsatisfied.

Travellers get to indulge the rest of their senses with the sights and sounds of Malaysia’s astonishing natural beauty, from the states of Sarawak and Sabah, to the blissful beaches, timeless tropical rainforests and national parks teeming with wildlife. Adventure seekers can climb to the summit of Mount Kinabalu, get up close to the orangutans, venture into caves or snorkel and dive in search of marine life. City dwellers will love the buzz of Kuala Lumpur or the authentic side of Penang’s George Town, while the island of Langkawi, off the northwest coast of the mainland, is blessed with sleepy fishing villages, soft sands and a wonderfully tranquil atmosphere.
