A melting pot of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Arabic and British influences, the Malaysian Peninsula is a land of captivating contrasts. Within its borders, you’ll discover primary rainforest, gleaming skyscrapers, tempting street food, fragrant tea plantations, tropical beaches and more.
Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia’s beating heart, the dynamic capital city with the sightseeing, shopping and nightlife opportunities to match. High above the hustle and bustle of the streets, the views from the top of the soaring Petronas Towers is breathtaking.
Away from KL, Malaysia continues to delight with its verve and diversity. The west coast allures with its paradise beaches and high-end resorts, whilst the east is peppered with laidback fishing villages and quieter beaches fringed by native jungle and coconut plantations. For a taste of the country’s mouth-watering street food you have to explore the buzzing night markets of Penang, the earliest British settlement in Malaysia and home to the UNESCO-listed George Town.
The cooler climes and scenic landscapes of the Cameron Highlands provide a welcome break from sightseeing in the cities. Here you can wander manicured tea plantations and strawberry fields, admire old colonial buildings and explore local produce markets. Equally atmospheric is historic Malacca, strewn as it is with antique shops, Javanese-style mosques and Chinese temples.
