Malaysia is a Tropical Paradise

Malaysia – A Tropical Paradise

Are you an adventure seeker? A foodie? A history buff? A nature lover? Or looking for a romantic getaway? Malaysia has it all. This tropical paradise is the perfect destination to fulfill anyone’s idea of a dream holiday.

Breathtaking Islands
Malaysia
is blessed with many exotic islands – from the islands in the west coast of the Peninsular like Penang and Langkawi that offer diverse cultural and gastronomical experience, to the remote islands in the east coast such as Perhentian, Redang, and Tioman that are more laidback and serene. Not to forget the stunning islands in Borneo, many of which are listed among the most beautiful islands in the world. Sipadan, Mabul, Gaya and Pom Pom are just some of the many quintessential islands in Borneo that boasts a stunning view of the turquoise ocean, white sandy beaches, swaying palms as well as fascinating coral and marine lives.

Mesmerising Highlands
For those seeking respite from the tropical weather, Malaysia has cool highland townships that offer the refreshing retreat. Each township gives a different kind of experience to the visitors. Genting Highland is famously known for its indoor and outdoor theme parks and is a perfect spot for a family getaway. Bukit Tinggi, which is just a stone’s throw away from Genting Highlands, will welcome you with a replica of the Colmar village in France and as you go higher, you will be greeted with a scenic view of Japanese-themed garden.

Cameron Highlands, on the other hand, is Malaysia’s largest hill-station that is best known for its extensive tea plantations and strawberry farms. In Fraser’s Hill, you can go bird-watching, jungle tracking, and horse riding while enjoying the quiet atmosphere of this untouched township. Across the South China Sea, lies the charming Kinabalu Park, Malaysia’s first World Heritage site that boasts a wide array of flora and fauna. The main attraction of Kinabalu Park is, of course, the highest peak in Malaysia – Mount Kinabalu.

Tropical Rainforests
Malaysia’s rainforests are believed to be some of the oldest and most biologically diverse in the world. In fact, Conservation International recognizes Malaysia as one of the 17 megadiverse countries in the world. The country has lowland and highland rainforests, peat swamp forests and mangrove forests among others. Due to its topographic variation, Malaysia’s rainforests host a wide range of flora and fauna.

The Taman Negara, Pahang alone is home to a whopping 14,000 species of plants, 200 mammals and 240 types of trees. Some of the rare species of flora and fauna found in Malaysia are the Malayan Tiger, Sumatran rhinoceros, Malayan Tapir, Malayan Pangolin, Leatherback Sea Turtle, Bornean Orang Utan, Proboscis Monkey, Rhinoceros Hornbill, Rafflesia and Large-leaved Pitcher Plant. Apart from Taman Negara, among the top national parks in Malaysia include Bako, Gunung Mulu, Niah and Gunung Gading in Sarawak; Kinabalu Park, Crocker Range Park and Tunku Abdul Rahman Park in Sabah; and Endau-Rompin, Gunung Ledang and Mersing in the Peninsular.

Bustling Cities
In the midst of the reefs, rainforests and mountains lies bustling cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Georgetown, Johor Bahru, Melaka, Ipoh, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching. Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia is a picture of modernization and grandeur. Standing tall in the city center is the Petronas Twin Towers, the tallest twin structure in the world.

Putrajaya is the country’s federal administrative center where all the government offices are located. The city is well-planned with more than a quarter of the area reserved for green spaces. Georgetown and Johor Bahru are two other major cities that are the reflection of ‘modern Malaysia’.  Melaka and Ipoh are relatively smaller cities and have a good balance of modern and traditional elements. The Bornean counterpart, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu will give you a whole new experience. In spite of the mushrooming buildings and complexes, these two cities still maintain its greeneries.

For shopaholics, you can shop till you drop in these bustling cities of Malaysia that have both luxury malls that sell designer goods as well as bazaars and night markets for cheaper and more localized alternatives.

Historical Marvels
In the early days, Malaysia was an important port of call on the trade route between India and China and was a part of the international spice route.  This plus the colonization and invasion of the Portuguese, Dutch, British, and Japan as well as the presence of various religions have greatly influenced its culture and heritage. From its architecture to its people and food, Malaysia’s diversity is apparent in every corner of the country.

In Penang, the British influence in its architecture is the most imposing and the buildings in Malacca are very much influenced by the Portuguese and the Dutch. Meanwhile, Kedah, Perak, Pahang, Terengganu, Sabah, and Sarawak are among the states that house many archaeological sites.

Unity in Diversity
Being a cultural melting pot, Malaysia boasts a harmonious mix of people. Apart from the three major races in the country, namely the Malays, Chinese and Indian, there are myriad of indigenous ethnic groups, especially in Sabah and Sarawak. There are also many people of mixed-races including the Eurasians and the Kristang people (people of mixed Portuguese and Malacca descent). Islam is the official religion of the country with the freedom to practice other religions. The rich mix of ethnicity and religions is vividly displayed through various colorful celebrations throughout the year.

Gastronomic Experience
The rich culture and history of Malaysia have obviously contributed to the variety of mouth-watering cuisines in every corner of the country. Each state offers unique food; from laksam in Kelantan, to Char Kuey Teow in Penang, Masak Lemak Cili Api in Negeri Sembilan and Ikan Patin Masak Tempoyak in Pahang, the burst of taste will leave you craving for more. Other must taste food in Malaysia include nasi lemak, roti canai, thosai, roti jala, yong tau foo and the list can go on and on.
