Travel to Malaysia - beautiful and modern

You'll be amazed by Malaysia. Soak up shiny and modern skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur, enjoy a homecooked, traditional meal in a small village, visit the dreamy beaches on one of Malaysia's many islands, and explore the amazing wildlife and nature. The reasons to travel to Malaysia are many. Even though the country has a predilection for the Western lifestyle it has kept its own distinctive stamps very well. One thing you can't miss out on is the local Malaysian cuisine, and in particular the Malay Chicken Satay – spicy chicken on barbeque skewers served with a sweet peanut sauce. YUM!

Kuala Lumpur

The capital Kuala Lumpur is a modern and busy metropole and often shortened to 'KL'. Unlike the rest of the country where the major ethnic group consists of Malay, the majority in KL are Chinese. The city offers a variety of exciting cultural attractions and sights. You'll find plenty of temples, exotic markets and historical museums, as well as nightclubs and shopping malls, plus the famous Petronas Twin Towers.

Borneo

Visiting Borneo and the Malaysian state of Sabah, "the land below in wind" in local words, is a must for any traveller in Malaysia. Borneo is the world's third largest island and here you can climb Mount Kinabalu (the highest mountain in Southeast Asia), dive in Sipadan (one of the best diving resorts in the world) and meet the orangutans and proboscis monkeys.

Perhentian Islands

The Perhentian Islands consist of two islands with endless beaches, crystal-clear water and gorgeous coral reefs just waiting for you to explore. If you prefer relaxation in beautiful surroundings, as well as a choice of exciting adventures, then you should pack your bikini immediately and head towards these wonderful islands.

In addition to cool water sports, the Perhentian Islands offer great trekking through the lush jungles with the chance to spot unique and colourful wildlife. Catch a bus from KL to Kuala Besut where there's a speedboat service which takes you to your final destination, takes about 30 minutes from the pier. If you prefer flying, jump on a plane to Kuala Terengganu or Kota Bharu and take a bus or taxi to the pier in Kuala Besut, it takes about 1 – 1½ hour.

Penang

Penang is an island located to the north-west, close to the border of Thailand, and offers lush jungle forests, cosy farms and small fishing villages. Georgetown is Penang's centre where most travellers head to. Don’t miss out on the cable car ride up to Penang Hill, a mountain with amazing views over the entire island. From here you can spot Southeast Asia's longest bridge among other beautiful sights. Enjoy lunch or dinner at the restaurants located here on the top of the mountain, followed by a tour to Kek Lok Si, the country's largest Buddhist temple. From the temple you'll get great views over Georgetown, and inside there's a little lake with cute turtles you can handfeed.
