Malaysia

A COUNTRY THAT COMBINES MODERNITY AND TRADITIONS
FROM KUALA LUMPUR, THE METROPOLIS, TO ORIGINAL VIRGIN FORESTS

BOOK THIS DESTINATION AND DISCOVER MALAYSIA
Malaysia, whose name comes from its main ethnic group, is a federation of states, many of which are sultanates. It shares the Malay Peninsula with Thailand and the Island of Borneo with Indonesia, of which it occupies the northern part. The peninsular part is crossed from north to south by a mountain range. Plantations and crops are concentrated along the coastal plains, while the north is the rice granary. The island portion of the country is for a very large part covered by tropical forests. In addition to its agriculture, it has mineral resources and offshore oil reserves. Being near the equator, Malaysia has a very wet tropical climate with smaller differences in temperature than its northern neighbor.
 
Kuala Lumpur is the country’s economic metropolis and a city of a very modern style, which works well in conjunction with Singapore. An administrative capital, Putrajaya, was created ex nihilo about twenty kilometers south near the Malaysian Silicon Valley, Cyberjaya. When you decide your destination, you will have the choice between the discovery of the peninsular portion and/or the island portion of this country.

THE MALAY PENINSULA: A DIVERSITY OF WONDERS TO DISCOVER

Kuala Lumpur is not only famous for its twin towers. Admire its modern architecture, and its organization which provides a nice quality of life. Why not check it out at night by watching it from the top of a panorama tower. If you like religious monuments, go to the Batu Caves nearby. They are the largest Hindu religious shrine outside of India. If you’re a history buff and are looking for remains of colonization, go through Malacca, on the Strait of the same name. Here you will find memories of the Portuguese, Dutch and English presence. You will enjoy the quiet charm of this small provincial town which was an important harbor both for control of the Straits but also to host ships during the long periods of headwinds.
 
If you love the sea, you will find all along the coast beautiful beaches conducive to relaxation or water sports. Think about the Tioman or Perhentian islands on the east coast. On the west coast, the island of Penang will offer a wider range of activities such as visiting the historical city of Georgetown, the great Chinese Kek Lok Si Temple, Penang Hill and its funicular leading to beautiful panoramas, etc. If you love nature, think of Cameron Highlands, suitable for growing tea or a plunge into the primeval forest in Taman Negara National Park. You will be completely disoriented and have the opportunity to go in search of wild animals in a deafening atmosphere of intense insects activity.

THE MALAYSIAN ISLAND, A DIRECT CONTACT WITH NATURE

SPORTS ACTIVITIES OR SIMPLE DISCOVERY WALKS
Sabah province offers you the opportunity to climb the 4,000 meters of Mount Kinabalu where you will have breathtaking views, and if you left at night, a magnificent sunrise to reward your effort. If you prefer the quieter discoveries, take a boat to discover the rich ecosystem of the Kinabatangan River or Sepilok and its rehabilitation center for orangutans. In the province of Sarawak, the former territory of headhunters, is now the national park of Gunung Mulu and protected as World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
 
Its visit requires a certain spirit of adventure but is rewarded with impressive karst landscapes, some very extensive cave networks, some of which can be visited, such as the Deer Cave including hundreds of thousands of bats who fly out on most nights. Not to mention the tropical jungle with all the richness of its fauna and flora. Another National Park: Bako, opened in 1957, so the oldest Malaysian park, home to proboscis monkeys, the monkeys with a long nose, and who are an endangered species. And, of course, a series of beautiful beaches offering all the pleasures of the sea.
