Malaysia is a tropical country located at the heart of Southeast Asia, just south of Thailand.
It has a wide range of attractions including beaches and rainforests, fabulous shopping malls and culture at every turn.
Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur, is home to the Petronas Twin Towers. One of the most popular spots in Malaysia, the Petronas Twin Towers are two of the world’s tallest buildings. Here you can get tickets to the sky bridge that connects the two towers and check out the amazing view of the city. If you want to go much higher for a more spectacular view, you can go to the 86th floor’s viewing deck.
For those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of KL, plan to visit some of the islands and try out diving, trekking or swimming at the beautiful beaches. The Taman Negara National Park is one of the of the oldest rainforests in the world. It is estimated to be about 130 million years old. You can simply take a stroll or go on a more challenging form of exploration by taking a 100-km trek and engage in exciting activities such as canoeing.
The Batu Caves are another tourist favourite. These three limestone caves are actually a temple where devotees carry offerings during the Thaipusam celebration. Be warned though – to visit these caves, you’ll have to walk up 272 steps.
For those who want to immerse themselves in the rich cultural history of Malaysia, the Sarawak Cultural Village is the place to visit. Here you will see cool performances, artwork, music workshops and most importantly, learn about the cultural groups in the country.
When it comes to beaches and water activities, Langkawi Island, Redang Island, and the Perhentian Islands top the list. If you want a challenging adventure, why not try trekking in Mount Kinabalu National Park?
Aside from its many tourist attractions, Malaysia also has a rich local cuisine. Some of the local dishes that you should try are nasi lemak, apambalik, satay, nasi danang and laksa.
