Malaysia

An exotic mix of cultures makes this a diverse and fascinating country

Visiting Malaysia gives you the opportunity to discover an incredibly diverse culture and contrasting landscapes. The gateway is Kuala Lumpur which is one of Asia's biggest cities. A shoppers paradise with plenty of museums, galleries and the Lake Gardens if you fancy a change of scenery.

Head away from the capital and head for the Peninsular Malaysia where you can take jungle walks, river cruises and visit one of the top dive sites in Asia which is great for snorkelling too.

There are a number of resorts on the island of Langkawi which is perfect for nature lovers seeking peace and quiet. For the ultimate visit Pangkor Laut a privately owned island with beaches that you call your own whilst you are there.

Kuala Lumpur

The capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, is well worth a visit with its spectacular towering skyscrapers and ultra modern shopping malls. The sky line is dominated by the magnificent twin towers of the 451 m high Petronas Towers. Visitors are able to try out the observation deck or the sky bridge for a real bird’s eye view of the city. For more orthodox architecture, from the British colonial era, there’s Sultan Abdul Samad building or the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station.

Taman Negara

If you would like to try a jungle experience, Taman Negara is the place to go. The national park is home to tigers, macaque monkeys and an abundance of bird life. It’s a fantastic experience to trek through the 130 million year old rain forest with an experienced guide who will indicate all the points of interest. You can even try a night trek. Tour operators can provide a number of packages and they can even pick you up from your hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

Batu Caves

The Batu Caves are one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India. Rising almost 100 m, the temple complex comprises of three main caves. You must bear in mind that you need to be reasonably able bodied to be able to enjoy your visit. For example, the Cathedral cave (the biggest cave) is reached by climbing a steep set of 272 steps.
