With sun-kissed white sand shores, incredible scenery and friendly locals, Malaysia is a laid-back country that is an absolute pleasure to travel to. The roads are a breeze, there is a wealth of wonderful restaurants and plenty of places to escape the hustle and bustle commonly found in Asian countries. Visitors to Penang can admire the open air museum of George Town, as well as visit the many contemporary art galleries. Malacca’s Jonker Walk Night Market is a shopping haven and the Kinta Valley around Ipoh offers a virtual time warp into colonial-era Malaysia.
And did we mention the beaches? Langkawi, Pangkor Islands, Tioman Island, Perhentian Islands and Redang are all incredibly beautiful and can be added on to any tour of Malaysia. In Malaysian Borneo, away from the must do orangutan spotting or searching for the rare Borneo pygmy elephant, you can relax with some exotic bird watching or enjoy a massage at one of the excellent spas in Kota Kinabalu. Even with a busy itinerary, you won’t be short of time to relax!
