Malaysia is a tremendous holiday destination, as it has something for everyone … a gentle coastline with lovely beaches, dense jungles, high forested mountains, world-renowned resorts and gentle, hospitable people.

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 has grown to be a modern, bustling city of well over a million people. Superficially, KL (as it's almost universally known) may appear to be just another modern Asian city of gleaming skyscrapers, but it retains much of the character and local colour that has been so effectively wiped out in other Asian-boom cities such as Singapore. It has plenty of colonial buildings in the centre, a vibrant Chinatown with street vendors and night markets and a bustling Little India.

Penang Island, off Peninsula Malaysia's northwestern coast, is the oldest British settlement in Malaysia and one of the country's premier resort areas. The major attraction is the vibrant and intriguing city of Georgetown where you are certain to see beautiful old Chinese houses, vegetable markets, temple ceremonies, trishaws, mahjong games and all the other aspects of Asian street life.

Malacca is an interesting blend of Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch and British influences and is considered Malaysia's most historic city.

The Cameron Highlands, in the centre of Peninsular Malaysia, is a series of hill stations at altitudes between 1500m (4920ft) and 1800m (5904ft).

This fertile area is the centre of Malaysia's tea industry and it is the place where locals and visitors come to escape the heat of the plains. Attractions include jungle walks, waterfalls, tea plantations, beautiful gardens and plenty of wildflowers.
