Malaysia Tours & Trips
Malaysia includes modern cities, first rate beach resorts, lush jungles, verdant rainforests and numerous National Parks. The influences of the ethnic mix also add to Malaysia’s attraction with its Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures.
The country is divided into two specific regions, Peninsular Malaysia and the northern half of the island of Borneo.
In Peninsular Malaysia, the capital, Kuala Lumpur combines the old and new with modern high rises including the skyscraping Petrona Twin Towers and its neighbourhoods such as Chinatown.
Penang is a large island offering some excellent beach resorts. A tour of the island includes a visit to colonial Georgetown, Fort Cornwallis and many attractive temples including one featured in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”.
The port of Malacca shows off its interesting Dutch, British and Portuguese influences with its fortress and genuine Portuguese cuisine.
Langkawi, a very scenic island features excellent beach resorts for all budgets. Another resort to consider is Tioman Island off the east coast where the movie “South Pacific” was filmed.
If a get away from it all is needed, try the hill resorts of Genting and Cameron Highlands where you can simply relax or go for great walks in the surrounding hills and forests. Taman Negara is a natural rainforest offering amazing scenery.
The Island of Borneo has two States. One is Sarawak. The capital, Kuching is an excellent centre to explore from. Don’t miss the whimsical Cat Museum. From here, unique would be a visit to a Longhouse reached by road and boat before arriving in a remote part of the country. Stop over and see how the original Headhunters now live. Two other Sarawak highlights are the Niah limestone caves dating back 40,000 years and the Bako National Park, a treasure chest of fauna and flora.
The State of Sabah offers Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in South East Asia, an Orang Utan sanctuary near Sandakan and Sipadan Island with its diverse marine life and bird sanctuary. Excellent scuba diving can be experienced off the coast of Sabah.
