Introducing Malaysia

Malaysia’s Islamic background makes some people think that it’s going to be boring or dangerous. It’s far from true, Malaysia is a save country for anyone to travel, people are extremely friendly, natural disasters and storms only seem to happen across the border and the multi-ethnic population gets along well in most cases. In short Malaysians are very laid back, warm and friendly.

To know Malaysia is to love Malaysia, A bubbling, bustling melting pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. There are so many thinks to see and do in Malaysia; Why not take a leisurely walk around Penang where wafts of Chinese incense blend with durian while Indian tunes blast from an Indian shop. After that visit the Cameron Highlands where you can visit colonial tea plantations in the cool air of the highlands; or, on the Seribuat Archipelago, off the east coast of Johor, snorkel through coral gardens and lounge on a beautiful beach. For more adventure head to Taman Negara and track elephants, or how about the adventure to experience the depths of Sarawak and Sabah in the mythical Borneo the second biggest rain forest in the world where you can see wild orang-utans and climb massive Mt Kinabalu south east Asia’s 5th highest mountain? Boring? I don’t think so.

Malaysia is located against the Straits of Melaka, protected, against swells and tsunamis, this part of the peninsula has welcomed foreign visitors since the days of early traders. Such a convenient shipping route has, over the centuries, created a cosmopolitan culture that is well-schooled in English.

One of Malaysia’s key attractions is its extreme contrasts. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts, and five-star hotels sit several meters away from ancient reefs. A fascinating fusion of tradition and modernity, Malaysia’s architecture today is a reflection of Asia’s many styles, cultures and religions. These influences include Hindu-Indian, Arab-Muslim, Chinese and European. Portuguese, Dutch and British colonization have also influenced local architecture. Now, the country embraces an independent modern Malaysian vision whilst staying true to its rich culture and heritage.

For the perfect holiday full of surprises, eclectic cultures and natural wonders, the time is now, the place is Malaysia.
