The Top 5 Places to go to in Malaysia




Known for its rainforests, beaches and blend of cultural influences, Malaysia is fast becoming a sought after tourist destination. The country’s two giant land masses to offer so much to see and do that you could quite easily spend weeks adventuring them. Here are some of the top locations that you don’t want to leave off your list.

Penang

Eager to try some of the best Malay cuisine on offer? Penang Island is the place to satisfy your taste buds, offering a wide array of restaurants. The historic George Town is a must-see, sporting architecture that is a melting pot of British colonialism, Chinese influences and Indian culture. Its influences come from being located on one of the world’s most popular shipping routes. Anyone into their marine history can learn a lot about it at one of the area’s many museums.

Kuala Lumpur

Boasting the world-famous 452 meter Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur is the country’s capital as well as its largest city. The metropolis has everything to offer, from unique dining experiences and luxurious boutique stalls, all of which you can read about here! Hotels and hostels are not in short supply – there’s one around every corner. And if you’re on a short business trip or have an early flight, you can even book a hotel room at Kuala Lumpur Airport.


Cameron Highlands

Located up in Titiwangsa Mountains, the Cameron Highlands are a great location for taking a break from the humidity of the lowlands. Tea plantations and flower farms make up the rolling landscape, many of these establishments open to the public. There’s also the chance to see some rich wildlife here too, from exotic butterflies to snakes. The climate is cooler than the rest of the country so remember to pack some long trousers and a rain jacket.

Gunung Mulu National Park

Impressive limestone rock formations and a sprawling network of caves make up Gunung Mulu National Park. The world’s largest cave chamber, The Sarawak Chamber, is also present here, so large that it is estimated to be able to hold up to forty Boeing 747s. Night walk trails and canopy sky walks can be booked that let you explore the surrounding rainforest. Monkeys, deer, giant porcupines and civets are all known to inhabit the area – if you’re lucky enough you may spot one. Oh, and three million bats are said to pour out of Deer Cave every day at dusk!

Langkawi

Also known as the Jewel of Kedah, this archipelago made up of 140 islands offers some of the country’s most beautiful beaches. Thai and Japanese influences can be found here, found in both the architecture and the gastronomy. One of the islands, to this day, is still inhabited by the Pulau tribe. There are also several hidden islands that only reveal themselves during low tide.

Those wishing to travel here can either take a plane directly, or a boat from the mainland. There are so many islands to explore here that this is a trip in itself.
