Malaysia Travel Guide

Malaysia fast facts:

Malaysia is home to extremes. In one block you can find towering skyscrapers and wooden houses on stilts and five-star hotels sitting several metres away from ancient reefs. And just like the landscape, every person jetting off to this¬† Southeast Asia paradise is going for a different reason. You’ll just as likely to be sitting next to someone on the plane who is ready for an action-packed adventure of hiking, kayaking, diving and monkey spotting as you are to be sharing your in-flight magazine with a lazy beach goer looking for some rays and some serious shopping bargains. Yup, Malaysia has got everything to satisfy the most extremed of travellers – and so much more!
