Cities buzz, rainforests hum, colours bursts, and aromas tantalise all across the beautiful nation of Malaysia. This multicultural country weaves Malay, Indian, and Chinese influences together to create an extraordinary culture. Visitors are welcomed by the warm and friendly Malaysian people and encouraged to soar to new heights in urban and country landscapes.
Rich and diverse marine life along the Indo-Pacific Basin makes Malaysia one of the world's leading dive destinations. Lankayan Island, Mabul Island, Pulau Sibuan, and Langkawi Island are only some of the country's most popular destinations. Magnificent coral reefs, schools of fish, hammerhead sharks, and shipwrecks bring life and mystery to each dive.
Bazaars dot the streets and luxury malls tower in the city. In Malaysia, shopping opportunities are around every corner. On duty-free islands of Labuan and Langkawi, or in the duty-free shops in Kuala Lumpur and Panang, visitors can snag all types of goods. While you are not encouraged to haggle at these stores, you are welcome and encouraged with street vendors.
George Town dominates the street food scene in Malaysia. Some of the must-try dishes include Asam laksa, Lor bak, Apom manis, Otak otak and Chendol. Sample traditional cuisine at local favourites: Lorong Baru Hawker Stalls, Mews Cafe, and My Nonya Favourites, where you'll find nasi goreng, cincalok cher bak, and eggs balanda.
Malaysia is recognised as one of the 12 mega-biodiversity countries in the world. The incredible flora colour the Parks in cities, such as Kuala Lumpur's Perdana Botanical Gardens and Perka's Taiping Lake Gardens. Further from the cities lie sprawling national parks: Kinabalu, Endau Rompin, Gunung Mulu, and more.
