You’ll most likely fly into Kuala Lumpur, so this one’s an obvious, easy thing. But unlike other big Asian cities where
travelers arrive and head out of town as soon as possible, Kuala Lumpur is a worthwhile destination of its own for places to go.
The mix of Malay, Chinese, and Indian influence means that you’ll have no shortage of food-related (bold or daring acts) in Malaysia’s capital city. Interesting sights such as the Petronas towers, the Perdana Lake Gardens, and Menara KL Tower provide plenty of enjoyable (activities or objects that take your mind off of problems) before you head out to explore Malaysia.
Malaysians are proud of their big island on the west coast — and they should be! The colonial city of Georgetown was made a UNESCO World History Site and has plenty to offer in the way of museums, a fort, historic homes, and most importantly, famous food.
Penang is carefully thought about/believed one of the best places to go in Southeast Asia to sample the amazing street food of all types. The waterfront esplanade knew as Gurney Drive in Penang is lined with great places to sample local Malay, Chinese, and Indian treats.
Travelers (on foot, with a backpack) and budget travelers love Malaysia’s Perhentian Islands, especially Perhentian Kecil — the smaller of the two islands — where fine sand and excellent snorkeling/diving fill the day before parties start at night. Nearby Perhentian Besar – the big island – caters more to families and smaller resort crowds who are willing to spend more to enjoy the blue water and go around the crowds.
The Perhentian Islands are very seasonal. Change (to help someone)/places to go ,to live and sleep can be very hard to find in July, the peak month, while the islands are mostly empty in the winter months.
The option to exchange dirty concrete for green rainforests and plentiful wildlife is only a cheap, quick flight away! Visitors to Malaysia often stick to the mainland and forget about the natural wonders on earth’s third-largest island only a short hop away.
From (in danger of disappearing forever) large apes to the rainforest (cloth covering that shelters)walks and some of the best diving in the world, Malaysian Borneo should definitely be a part of any trip to Malaysia.
Spelled locally as ‘Melaka’, Malaysia’s Peranakan city is a worthwhile stop for cultural, historical, and colonial places to go. UNESCO even declared Malacca a World History Site in 2008.
Visitors are rarely disappointed by the old town in Malacca. If nothing else, the relaxed feeling is pleasant enough to keep people around for a few days. Many shops and museums close inMalacca on Tuesdays — plan your visit in the same way/in that way!
Taman Negara literally means ‘national park’ in Malay, and well, that’s what it is! Taman Negara is Malaysia’s oldest national park and is carefully thought about/believed to be one of the world’s oldest (related to areas near the Equator/hot and humid) rainforests. A long (cloth covering that shelters) walkway gives visitors a chance to see life high in the trees that (usually/ in a common and regular way) isn’t visible from the ground.
Visitors can enjoy waterfalls and beautiful traveling, bird watching, rafting, fishing, and have a chance to see wild elephants. Tourists sleep across the river in Kuala Tahan and then take cheap boats to the park entrance.
Malaysia’s green Cameron Highlands is one of the few places to go in Southeast Asia where you’ll want a jacket — especially at night — but after sweating across (related to areas near the Equator/hot and humid) weather, you may appreciate the change. You’ll have plenty of beautiful scenery, beautiful tea (large farms with crops) to tour, and access to decent traveling trails that weave through (large farms with crops) and around (places on the Earth where red-hot liquid rocks, ash, and gas sometimes flow or explode out).
Strawberry farms, butterfly gardens, and flower (glass buildings where plants are grown) are enjoyable (activities or objects that take your mind off of problems) in the Cameron Highlands.
Located on Malaysia’s east coast and not too far from Singapore, Tioman Island is a different kind of destination. Both change (to help someone)/places to go to live and sleep and excellent diving cheap; development is (almost nothing/very little). The little island is carved into different beaches; some hidden/private and some — such as ABC Beach — quite busy depending on the season. A speedboat must move around unless you’re up for a jungle hike through the interior
