Malaysia is one of the most diverse places in Asia, with a blend of Chinese, Malays, Indians and indigenous groups each bringing their distinct culture to the country. From traditional architecture to a wealth of fantastic cuisine, to unique rural crafts and amazing natural beauty, Malaysia is easily one of the best places to visit in Southeast Asia, if not the world.
Home to some of the world’s oldest tropical rainforests and gorgeous beaches, the beauty of Malaysia is reason enough to visit. If you’ve never been before, Kuala Lumpur is a must. Take in the boa constrictors slithering through traffic and monkeys frolicking across buildings.
Though busy, the city is surprisingly organized and peaceful, giving you room to process the merging cultures, the Iranian and Arabian shopping, the Indian food and the exotic markets among palm-lined, ordered streets. You’ll fall in love with the natural beauty, yet urbanization of this eclectic city.
