Here is the Orient in one country - a tapestry of Asian landscapes, cultures and traditions; picture-book beaches and island retreats; lush tropical rainforests and misty mountains; amazing wildlife; exotic culinary delights; and modern cities with a vast array of sightseeing and shopping.
A nation of two halves - divided by 330 miles of South China Sea - and a lively cultural diversity, Malaysia bubbles with 21st century energy and technology. It’s also home to primitive tribal longhouses, rainforest jungles, prolific wildlife, and ancient traditions that flourish amid a colourful mesh of races and religions. Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous cultures produce a vibrant living jigsaw that makes for never a dull moment as you travel the country. Driving on the left and 3-pin plugs will remind you of past colonial connections.
Beaches? Malaysia doesn’t do things by halves here either. From mainland Peninsular Malaysia to the magical Andaman Sea and South China Sea islands and the coasts of Sabah and Sarawak you’ll be spoilt for choice by a host of drop-down beach menus, garnished with luxury resorts and romantic retreats.
Malaysia’s stunning environment means there are few bounds when it comes to adventure options – from serious rock-climbing and cross-jungle trekking to rafting in foaming rivers, off-road driving and mountain-biking. Less challenging but as rewarding is gentle exploration of the great national parks (over half of Malaysia is covered by tropical rainforest hosting a vast array of exotic plants and animals) and such geological wonders as Sarawak’s Mulu Caves.
Nightlife & Party with Locals
Malaysia’s nightlife does the business! In the main cities you’ll find a huge selection of nightclubs, karaoke lounges, discos, pubs and cineplexes. Nightspots offer every kind of preference and themes - from R &B, blues, jazz, country, canto pop (Chinese), the popular Malay dangdut, Bollywood. Many hotels entertainment programmes feature cultural shows.
Gourmet Cuisine & Dining Out
For some visitors, Malaysia’s array of delicious cuisines could prove reason enough for a holiday here! The authentic and creative cooking styles and flavours of Malay, Chinese, Indian and other ethnic groups provide endless variety and appeal. You can dine in five-star hotels, food courts, hawker centres, kopitiam (Chinese coffee shops), restaurants, local and international fast food outlets or even alfresco at warungs or roadside stalls. Malaysian cuisine is definitely worth experiencing during your luxury holiday in Malaysia.
