Destination Guide >> Malaysia




A vibrant blend of Asian cultural influences and British colonial heritage, Malaysia is one of the southeast Asia region's most fascinating and diverse destinations. From the cosmopolitan capital of Kuala Lumpur with its iconic twin towered skyscraper to the humble oceanside fishing communities that pepper the country's east coast, Malaysia offers a cornucopia of delightful travel experiences. Foodies can indulge in the diverse national cuisine that includes Chinese, Indian and Malay dishes, while visitors in search of escape can head to the hill stations or well tended national parks where nature takes centre stage and the variety of flora and fauna is immense. A well developed road and rail network makes travelling around Malaysia swift and comfortable and with English widely spoken, communication is easy.
