  • Kuala Lumpur

Why is Malaysia considered a top bucket list destination?

With cultural influences from Indonesia, China and India, Malaysia is a true melting pot of people, religion and especially food making it a leading bucket list destination. Offering stunning tropical beaches, friendly locals and great contrasts (city vs nature), the country has something to make every traveller satisfied. Neighbouring Borneo is also home to one of the oldest rainforests in the world.

What are the top bucket list activities on a Malaysia vacation?

For most first time visitors, a trip to Malaysia wouldn’t be complete without taking in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur with the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and nearby Batu Caves. Other great bucket list activities could include climbing Mt. Kinabalu in Borneo, skydiving in Langkawi or checking out the famous street art in historical Georgetown in Penang. Penang is also known to have one of the best food scenes in all of Asia.
