Malaysia is a remarkably diverse travel destination. The landscape alone is varied; a mix of jungles, beaches and pulsating cities that form the lifeblood of this remarkable nation. While predominantly Muslim, other religions also inhabit the land, so there are some stunning mosques, churches and temples dotted throughout Malaysia.
Malaysia's territory on the island of Borneo is one for adventure lovers – a place to hike through lush jungles, witness the lives of ancient indigenous tribes and even spot an orangutan or two in the wild.
Similarly, Peninsular Malaysia is home to an abundance of unspoilt wilderness, including the brilliant Taman Negara National Park, which is located in one of the oldest rainforests in the world. On the other hand, the peninsular is also home to the incredibly cosmopolitan capital city of Kuala Lumpur. It’s one of the most sought after city destinations in the world, home to the famous Petronas Twin Towers, as well as a vast array of high-end restaurants, luxury hotels and supermalls.
Among Malaysia’s many charms is its incredible dining scene. As you’d expect from such a cosmopolitan country, you can find just about anything you fancy: authentic Chinese and Indian food, Malay delights or the wonderful fusion dishes that take on a life of their own. Chilli crab is very popular, as is the slightly more sedate pepper crab. Sample the sata too – a traditional dish of spiced fish wrapped in banana leaves.
