Top Things to Do in Malaysia – The Highlights of a Captivating Nation

If you visit the nation of Malaysia, you will find many interesting things to do for a fun holiday; these include experiencing local markets, taking a Belungkor Mangrove eco tour, enjoying the Adventure Waterpark and more.


Explore local markets

A great experience to enjoy in Malaysia would be visiting some of its vibrant markets. By doing so, you will be able to have a genuine local experience and gain a fascinating insight into the Malaysian culture and way of life as you mingle with residents. In fact, food markets, particularly those functioning at night, happen to be a significant element in the native culture. Naturally, you will find plenty of delicious foods at these markets, meaning that you will have the opportunity to enjoy a tasty and affordable meal here. Almost every Malaysian town will have one of these markets, whilst large cities such as Kuala Lumpur will have many.


Take a Belungkor Mangrove eco tour

Nature lovers should undoubtedly take the opportunity to join a Belungkor Mangrove eco tour which will take you on a cruise across the Belungkor Forest's mangroves. On this tour, you will be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide who is also a naturalist. On this adventure, you will be able to learn a great deal regarding the traditions and way of life of the local fishermen, as well as their fascinating superstitions. You will also have the chance to plant some mangrove saplings and enjoy typical local foods at the village of Kampung Linting.


Enjoy the Adventure Waterpark

Visitors of all ages will enjoy Desaru Coast's Adventure Waterpark. Here, you will find an array of slides and rides providing varying levels of thrills and excitement as well as several different zones specially created for visitors of specific age groups. You will be able to relax and unwind as you drift along the lazy river, try the exciting surf simulator and get your adrenaline pumping on the more exhilarating attractions. An accommodation choice to consider close to this water park would be Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas which is amongst the appealingly located beach resorts in Malaysia.


View the Petronas Towers

Your visit to Malaysia would not be complete without viewing the spectacular Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. These towers will undoubtedly be counted amongst Malaysia's best-known landmarks, being considered at one time to be the world's highest buildings. You will find that these towers present a spectacular sight in the daytime but are even more breathtaking after nightfall. Visitors will also have the chance to ascend the towers and enjoy the amazing views over the city.


Visit Batu Caves

Another engrossing sightseeing attraction in Malaysia would be the remarkable Batu Caves. This happens to be a site that is sacred to Hindus whilst also being a popular tourist attraction. It is famed for its vibrantly coloured steps; if you desire to secure the best photos of these renowned steps minus the crowds, you should arrive here early. After taking your pictures, you may ascend the steps to visit the enormous inner cave temple. However, you should be wary of the mischievous monkeys who make their home here too!
