Malaysia finds itself alongside the household names of Europe, America and Asia when it comes to travel experiences. The nation, despite its modest size, has built a world-beating reputation for its sights and sounds to delight visitors of all ages. For travelers seeking an alternative melting pot of South East Asia, famed for its natural beauty, friendly locals and world-class resorts, then Malaysia might well be the place for your next visit abroad.
Malaysia tourism has run ad campaigns extolling the virtues of wildlife, but to see it with your own eyes is something truly breathtaking. Tropical islands sit off beautiful coastlines washed by the gorgeous clear waters of the South China Sea. Back on land you'll find culture for days in the historic Straits towns of Malacca and Penang. It isn't just history to soak up here, however, it's also fun for all the family up in the hill resorts of Cameron and Genting. If the underwater world is your thing then get to one of Malaysia's world recognized dive resorts in Sipadan, Labuan or Tioman to explore colorful coral reef with trained and experienced guidance.
