Malaysia destination guide

Malaysia is a nation where Hindu temples and gold-domed Malay mosques jostle for space with bustling markets and towering skyscrapers. Away from the cities, untamed nature awaits for the best outdoors getaway in Asia. Malaysia is like two countries in one: Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo.


The northern half of Peninsular Malaysia is very mountainous and thinly populated. While on the western side of the peninsula, there is a long fertile plain running down the sea, on the east, the mountains descend more steeply and the coast is full of sandy beaches. The peninsula is where people come for bustling cities and colonial history to experience the best heritage holiday in Malaysia.

Malaysian Borneo is covered by dense jungle and is the gateway to a mysterious world of lush rainforests inhabited by isolated indigenous tribes and islands where you can find coral reefs teeming with turtles, sharks and rainbow-coloured tropical fish. In Malaysia a world of wonderous exploration awaits to experience a special nature break in Asia.
