From charming countryside areas to laidback islands and oceans teeming with corals and marine life, Malaysia is a unique holiday getaway.


The Beaches of Malaysia Are Truly Stunning

Some of south-east Asia's best beaches are found in Malaysia. Catering to the sun lover who looks for loads of action on and below the water, the beaches are also perfect for spending long lazy days under the shade of a swaying palm tree. You will find the best beaches are those in Redang, which is an island not too far from the eastern coast. Snorkel around the northern end and you will come across sea turtles and may even catch them laying eggs on the beach. Equally stunning are Langkawi's beaches, catering to tourists; these havens are occupied by international chain hotels such as Berjaya Hotels & Resorts, spread across Malaysia.


The Culture and History is Fascinating

Malaysia is a melting pot of culture, home to a multi-ethnic community consisting of immigrants from China, India and Indonesia; Malaysian culture influences many facets. You can savour this harmonious fusion of cultures in districts such as Penang, while George Town a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers the culture buff a neighbourhood packed with colonial relics, grand mosques, Buddhist and Hindu temples as well as vintage architecture that still has the power to awe. The most well-known hotels in Malaysia are strategically placed to help you enjoy the best of each city, town or district; hence, choosing your favourite Malaysian experience is simple and easy.

The Wildlife is Exotic and Amazing

Malaysia and the cheeky Orang-utan go hand in hand, but this famous mammal is not the only lure; make sure to check out the Tropical Butterfly Farm in Teluk Bahang. You can observe the orang-utans in all their splendour in Borneo where the forests of Sepilok are home to the wild creatures. Once done make sure to trek up Mount Kinabalu for picturesque views of the countryside consisting of jungles, green paddy fields and rustic little villages.


The Food is Out of this World

The food in Malaysia is fabulous, especially since dishes are influenced by the multi-cultural races. Treat the foodie in you to the array of street food varieties, or splurge and enjoy a meal at one of the capitals fine dining restaurants; either way, your taste-buds are in for a treat.
