Malaysia, a vibrant tapestry of cultures and landscapes, beckons through its diverse regions. Kuala Lumpur, the modern capital, dazzles with skyscrapers and cultural diversity. Penang’s historic streets and vibrant cuisine allure, while Borneo’s rainforests and wildlife enchant. From the Cameron Highlands’ cool retreats to Langkawi’s island paradise, Malaysia offers a rich mosaic of experiences.
Kuala Lumpur is the federal capital and the largest city in Malaysia. Literally meaning “muddy river confluence” in Malay, Kuala Lumpur has grown from a small sleepy Chinese tin-mining village to a bustling metropolis of around 6.
Langkawi really is a haven for those seeking the most perfect beach holiday. Langkawi is known as ‘the jewel of Kedah’ for this reason.
Penang is an island-state off the northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It comprises two halves – Penang Island, where the capital city of George Town is located, and a strip of mainland Peninsula named Seberang Perai (formerly Province Wellesley).
In the 1970s, Time magazine selected Tioman as one of the world’s most beautiful islands. The densely forested island is still sparsely inhabited.
