If you want to experience a genuinely Asian getaway, then enjoy a holiday in magical Malaysia. This multi-cultural country is a microcosm of what the East is all about – towering skyscrapers mixed with traditional sights like Colonial and Chinese buildings, Buddhist mosques and Hindu temples.
The country is divided into two separate regions: Peninsula Malaysia, which is close to Thailand, best known for its vibrant cities and Colonial history. Then there’s the eastern part of the country, which makes up the northern part of the island of Borneo, near enough to Indonesia to visit if you wish. This unspoiled natural area is the base from which to explore fairytale rainforests and jungles, famously home to isolated indigenous tribes.

Outside the city, you’ll find impressive cave temples and Hindu shrines. Further afield, there are magnificent coral reefs (Malaysia’s dive sites are legendary and among the best in the world), tropical jungles, national parks and wildlife reserves to explore.
Malaysia’s beautiful islands are also waiting to be discovered… There’s Langkawi, a paradise for lazing on palm-fringed beaches and exploring a magical underwater world. Enchanting Penang is home to idyllic fishing villages, numerous fruit, clove and nutmeg plantations and the infamous Snake Temple, where pit vipers laze on altars. Its capital, Georgetown, offers many sights, including the Goddess of Mercy Temple and Fort Cornwallis. And if you’re keen for adventure, head to Kota Kinabulu on the island of Borneo, the ideal base from which to go white-water rafting, deep-sea fishing, sea kayaking, snorkelling or mountain climbing.
