Malaysia covers two geographical areas; Malaysian Peninsula and the northern half of the island of Borneo. You will find Malaysia to be an incredibly diverse country, offering everything from the exciting capital city of Kuala Lumpur, where the modern day is mixed with traditional Malaysia, to the beautiful island resorts of Penang, Langkawi and Pangkor.
Malaysia is the home of satay, the tallest twin buildings in the world and thriving flora and fauna populations. It is also the home of a distinctive multicultural society: mostly Malay, then Chinese, Indian and indigenous people. Though Malay is the official language, English is widely spoken on the street.
Visitors can easily unwind and relax and forget the stresses of daily life once they've stretched out on some of Malaysia's fine beaches, or explored perfect, unspoilt jungle in the National Parks, enjoyed a tantalizing meal in Kuala Lumpur's energetic Chinatown. Historical relics of colonialism by Portugal, the Netherlands and Great Britain only add to Malaysia's charm. And a well-developed tourism industry means you will be able to enjoy all of Malaysia's highlights in ease and comfort.
Be it the oldest rainforest, tropical islands with crystal blue waters, culture, shopping or just plain Malaysian gastronomical delight, there is something in Malaysia to suit everyone's taste.
