About Malaysia

Malaysia is a bubbling, bustling melting-pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. Our multiculturalism has made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise and home to hundreds of colourful festivals. It's no wonder that we love celebrating and socialising. As a people, Malaysians are very relaxed, warm and friendly. 

Geographically, Malaysia is almost as diverse as its culture. 11 states and 2 federal territories (Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya) form Peninsular Malaysia which is separated by the South China Sea from East Malaysia which includes the 2 states (Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo) and a third federal territory, the island of Labuan. Located strategically in the heart of South East Asia, Malaysia connects major cities around the world directly and affordably. 

One of Malaysia's key attractions is its extreme contrasts which further add to this theme of ‘diversity’. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts while five-star hotels sit just metres away from ancient reefs.

 

Rugged mountains reach dramatically for the sky while their rainforest-clad slopes sweep down to floodplains teeming with forest life. Cool highland hideaways roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves. 

Experience the Sights, Sounds and Smells of Malaysia. From relaxing on the warm sandy beaches to hiking through the deep jungles of Borneo or just experiencing the hustle of everyday life on a typical Malaysian street observing people, practices and culture.  When it comes to food, there is no shortage of choice with something for everyone. Ranging from fine dining, fusion cuisine to the absolute best street food this side of the world.
