Malaysia, is one of the rising stars of South– East Asian tourism; a nation looking to the future while cherishing the proud history of the past. Centuries of trade combined with a vibrant mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and tribal influence have created a diverse people and culture that make it a colourful and intriguing place to visit, and a gastronomical paradise.
Malaysia today is a country of contrasts. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts, and five-star hotels sit several feet away from ancient reefs. Cool hideaways are found in the highlands that roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves. To visit Malaysia is to experience a harmony of varied cultures and landscapes.
