Overview

"Malaysia Truly Asia". It is amazing how 3 words could translate the essence of a country. The campaign began in the 1990s and it has rung through the years until today. What makes the line "Malaysia Truly Asia" perfect is that Malaysia is a packet of Nasi Lemak of Asian culture. Gathering together the unlikeliest ingredients wrapped into one delicious national dish. Multi-racial and multi-cultural, Malaysia represents Asia at its finest and its more delicate.

 

Whether you want to tour the north in search of food in Penang, or touring to the east to go for a dive inside Terengganu's warm azure blue waters or even to Sabah and Sarawak to discover their hidden treasures, Malaysia offers anything for anyone who's looking for their Personal Legends (from Paulo Coelho's 'The Alchemist'). Although it might be true that neighbouring countries such as Thailand and Singapore get most of the attention when it comes to tourism, it must be said also that Malaysia offers a unique and otherworldly experience for those who want to venture through the road less taken. 

 

In Malaysia, food is not to be taken lightly (literally and figuratively). Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be experienced in plenty of ways. You can have them inside a Michelin-starred restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, or you can even eat with your hands by the roadside with locals. And within these two extremes, the multi-cultural background of Malay, Chinese, India and other ethnic groups creates a truly diverse pool of eating options wherever you go as you tour Malaysia. 

 

INTERESTING PLACES

 

Urban Adventure

- Touring around Kuala Lumpur is your safest bet to experience Malaysia's rapid city life. With a potpourri of Malaysian culture here, you can expect a rich and diverse culinary delights with Jalan Alor being a prime example. Long rows of street food is nothing short of amazing when you're hungry. Touring around Kuala Lumpur too is where you can modern 21st-century skyscrapers with the Petronas Twin Towers as its crown jewel. You can also find pockets of lush greenery in Kuala Lumpur at Bukit Nenas and Perdana Botanical Garden. All of these is made reachable thanks to Kuala Lumpur's well-managed public transport system. 

- A tour around the historically rich and Unesco World Heritage-listed, Melaka and Penang also offers a distinctive architectural and cultural diversity inside its city space. In Kuching and Kota Kinabalu to East the of Malaysia, these two cities offer a completely different take on city life with the introductions to contemporary and tribal life in Borneo.

 

Tropical Beach Paradise

-If you're looking to tour Malaysia for a beach holiday, you have come to the right place! Being home to 878 islands (where 394 of them reside in Sabah), Malaysia is blessed with not just a fantastic island retreat, but also warm hospitality to match. Featuring pristine beaches and a tranquil ambience, Pulau Pangkor is a charming fishing settlement that also offers a homely beach holiday. Perfect for those who want to slow things down by the beach. It is also worth mentioning that  Pulau Redang, Pulau Kapas, Pulau Tioman and Pulau Rawa could make any beach lover swoon over their beauty. 

- If diving into deep blue oceans and observing marine life is more of your thing, the state of Sabah should be your destination. There you can find some world-class diving sites such as Pulau Layang-Layang, Pulau Mabul and Pulau Sipadan (where you can find the world's first and only converted oil rig diving platform). 

- Pulau Perhentian (which consist of Perhentian Besar and Perhentian Besar) should also be in your list if  you're looking for some entertainment by the beach

 

The Vast Greenery

- Malaysia prides itself with some extraordinary rainforest. Significant chunks of the major rainforest here are among the most ancient ecosystems on earth. These rainforests remain intact and protected by national parks and conservation projects. With more than 30 Taman Negara (which literally translates as "national park" in the Malay language) all across Malaysia,  it is often toured by nature lovers from all around the world. The luscious rainforest is home to some amazing wildlife which includes the Hornbill, Long-tailed Marque Monkey, Malayan Tapir, Tigers and thousands of different species of flora and fauna. 

- The oldest tropical rainforest in the world (130 million years old) can be found at Taman Negara Pahang. Being also the biggest national park in Malaysia you can walk on a long canopy walkway as you tour the forest high in the trees that normally isn't visible from the ground. Here you can also jungle trek your way around the forest under the rainforest canopy, caving, fishing, camping, observing wildlife, and many more

 

Foodies' Heaven

- Malaysia's passion for food is something to admire. The melting pot of culture in Malaysia has created the perfect grounds for a gastronomical experience like no other. The Indian, Malay, Chinese and other ethnic groups have developed their dishes that are to die for. And more often than not, it is the street food that truly reflects on how delicious Malaysian food really is. You can find street food wherever you tour around Malaysia. 

- When it comes to food, Penang is your go-to place. This northern state of Malaysia offers those who tour there unrivalled street food delicacies. In this small island is where you can find the most delicious Nasi Kandar (rice, curry gravy, mixed vegetables and your choice of protein) at Restoran Deen Maju, the scrumptious fried squid noodles at Hameed Pata or wash down the spices away with a cold cendol (shaved ice, there is an abundance of coconut milk mixed with palm sugar syrup) at Penang Road Chendol. A food hunting coma awaits you in Penang. 

 

FESTIVALS

-  Festivals in Malaysia can go all-year-round. With different cultures and religion living together, Malaysians are excited about celebrating festivities with their friends and family from different backgrounds together (and also Malaysians enjoy the holidays too. But that's another story). 

- For Malays, you can expect Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Aidil Adha to be their biggest festivals (which is in May and July respectively). Food during this festival will be in abundance as those celebrating will be having open their houses for those around the neighbourhood to meet together and have a good time. Aidil Fitri is the season of forgiving while Aidil Adha is the season of sacrifice.

- The Chinese New Year is a highlight for the Chinese community. Touring Malaysia during this festive season is where you will see the famous Lion Dance at temples, shopping malls and even inside offices! This dance involves people dressing in costumes to perform rhythmic dances for good luck and to chase evil spirits away. You can experience Chinese New Year in Malaysia by the end of January.

- Deepavali, the Festival of Lights, is celebrated by the Hindus. During this festival, Hindus decorate their houses with oil lamps and pretty lights. It is a celebration of good triumphing over evil. Local Hindus will also celebrate by using coloured chalk to draw and shapes on the ground while scattering coloured rice creating a beautiful pattern. All races and religions are welcome to join in the event, which takes place in people’s houses or public areas such as the mall. Deepavali is celebrated during the month of November

- Rainforest World Music Festival is held in the Borneo forest. Here you can find the of world music, held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. Music workshops, cultural displays, craft displays, food stalls and many different activities on the Sarawakian culture can be found during the day. And at night and main-stage sets alight as international musicians come together and celebrate music together.

 

GETTING AROUND MALAYSIA

- Getting around Malaysia is budget-freindly and its public transport reliable. In Kuala Lumpur riding the train is your best bet. Getting around is easy with an efficient web-like train system. You can ride the LRT, KTM, MRT, Monorail to get where you want. And if the location you would like to go is far from the train station, you can also ride the public bus where trains can't be accessed. We would advise you to purchase a Tuch n Go card to pay for public transport.

- To reach other different states, we would advise you to ride the bus or aeroplane. Airlines from Kuala Lumpur would link you to Langkawi, George Town, Alor Setar and Johor Bahru among others in West Malaysia on a daily basis. Convinient for those who are constantly on the move touring Malaysia
