Malaysia is a southeast Asian melting pot, where cultures and cuisines coalesce in a place like no other. Hopping from temple to mosque, high-rise to jungle is commonplace in a nation as diverse as this. If you’re an animal lover, head to Penang National Park which boasts – at last count – 271 wildlife species. If food is your first love, sample spicy curries, laksas, and rendang across the country.
A short flight from the capital Kuala Lumpur will bring you to the eco-paradise of Malaysian Borneo – home to a cherished indigenous culture and a haven for endangered wildlife like the orangutan. Malaysia truly does have it all.
