Magical beaches, diverse wildlife, rich culture
The piercing, modern skyline of Kuala Lumpur, dominated by the Petronas Twin Towers, is synonymous with Malaysia. The capital city is certainly worthy of exploration time, but beyond this vibrant metropolis is much more.
Malaysia boasts 25 national parks famed for their rainforested mountains, waterfalls and millenia-old caves. Hiking trails invite hikers to explore their unique landscapes. Wildlife conservation centres provide sanctuaries for endangered species including orangutans, elephants, tapirs, sun bears and tropical birds.
The former trade centre of beautiful Malacca, renowned for its heritage buildings reflecting British, Dutch and Portuguese influences in its churches, museums and forts, offers antique shops and night markets. Centuries-old shop-houses still stand proudly.
Tioman Island, off the east coast of the Malaysian Peninsula, entices the more intrepid traveller with its lush tropical rainforest, white sand beaches, nature reserves and clear ocean perfect for diving and snorkeling. Accessed by ferry from Mersing, it is a destination worth the journey.
