Welcome To Malaysia

Welcome to Malaysia!

Discover the intoxicating beauty of Malaysia!

This country of 22 million people is the quintessential land of contrasts, from Peninsular Malaysia, to Malaysian Borneo, from the gleaming skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur to the wooden houses of Kampung Morten, and from the Islamic tradition of the majority, to the Chinese influence of the historic Peranakan people.

This study in contrasts is a large part of the fascination people have for Malaysia, a nation given birth in 1957. Here, you’ll find seaside adventures, colonial buildings, and historical museums, in a country where the ringgit goes a long way, and transportation is inexpensive and, for the most part, modern.

Peninsular Malaysia

Important stops include the colonial Penang city of George Town, historic Melaka, and the dynamic capital of Kuala Lumpur. Her natural marvels include the Cameron Highlands, Tioman Island, and the rustic uplands of Kelantin state.



Malaysian Borneo

Sarawak’s highlights include the cultural capital of Kuching, and the National Parks of Bako and Gunung Mulu, and upriver travels along the great Rejang River.

In Sabah, you find some of Asia’s best diving in the islands just off the coast of the seaside city of Semporna. Mountain adventures beckon on the heights of Mt. Kinabalu, the highest mountain between the Himalayas and New Guinea.

Getting to and around Malaysia is relatively easy, with many international and local flights, and a very good intercity bus system.
