Malaysia is a montage of varied cultures and flavours, with a dash of colonial heritage. From the blue beaches of the Perhentian Islands to the dense jungles of Sabah, Malaysia is a traveller’s paradise. If you are travelling to Malaysia, a few nights marvelling at the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur is a given. When you are done indulging in the urban delights of the capital, head to the misty tea plantations of the Cameron Highlands. Definitely explore aborigine villages while you are there. For those seeking adventure, Malaysia has no shortage of activities and things to do. Trek through one of the forests of Borneo for wild encounters with giant flowers (Rafflesias) and some of the last remaining orangutans. You could also hike up Malaysia’s tallest mountain, and Southeast Asia’s fourth tallest, Kota Kinabalu. A dive down the pristine waters of the Sipadan Island that is home to barracudas and manta ray. Malaysia is also a cornucopia of cuisines and aromas. A paradise for food lovers, don’t leave here without trying their mee goreng, otak otak and the assam laksa.
