Malaysia is a unique country that has so many different ethnicities living together in harmony. This fusion of cultures has influenced many aspects be it religion, culture or food.
There is something for each and every traveler be it adventure, beauty, tradition or modernity.
For a true blue traveler out to experience the real Malaysia with all its colours and flavours, we have the following ideas for you that can be further customized in to an itinerary based on your requirements.
– Kuala Lumpur
– George Town, Penang
– Sipadan Island
KUALA LUMPUR (2-3 DAYS)
The Malaysian capital is a bustling hub of bars, restaurants and street food stalls. There’s enough to do in Kuala Lumpur to keep you busy for the entire week, but you can cover the the sights in 2-3 days.
Walk through the serene KLCC Park at the foot of the Petronas Towers. Go up to the 88th floor of the towers, once the tallest buildings in the world, for panoramic views of the city.
For a taste of the local food , head to Jalan Alor. Also known as Satay Street, this road is lined with street food stalls billowing steam and serving satay straight from the grill. End the night on Changkat, a street lined with cocktail bars and pubs.
Just 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station, the Batu Caves are the perfect day trip from Kuala Lumpur. Inside these ancient caves is a 100-year-old temple decorated with statues and idols that attracts devotees from across the world.
GEORGE TOWN, PENANG (1-2 DAYS)
George Town is Malaysia’s second largest city and is UNESCO heritage town. Wooden shop fronts and narrow streets give the centre an old-world ambience.
The city is a paradise for foodies. The amount and variety of good food is almost overwhelming.
Start with a coffee from one of the many artisan cafés, in the historic centre. Caffeine is an art form in this city. The streets are lined with age-old shops, houses, temples and mosques.
For some authentic Penang fare, head to New Lane Hawker Centre for dinner, where the full array of the island’s street food is on offer from hawker stalls.
Discover the flora and fauna of the island with a trip to Penang Hill that has views all the way to Langkawi on a clear day. Or, hike from the entrance to Penang Botanic Gardens.
LANGKAWI (2-3 DAYS)
Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands, and the perfect introduction to Malaysia’s pristine beaches. Home to rich rainforest and calm, clear shores, could literally take a “chill-pill” and unwind here.
Chill out on Pantai Tengah, an idyllic sweep of sand lapped by crystal shallows. For the adventure loving travelers you could spend time jet-skiing or parasailing.
As the sun sets over the ocean, the bars and restaurants in the buzzing town of Pantai Cenang spark to life.
Discover Langkawi’s wild side with a trip into the jungle, where you can spot geckos, monkeys and monitor lizards, and swim in natural swimming pools.
SIPADAN ISLAND (2-4 DAYS)
For the scuba divers, Sipadan is close the holy grail of diving. The island is known above all for some of the best scuba diving anywhere in the world.
Sipadan is the only oceanic island in Malaysia that rises 600 metres from the seabed. It was formed by living corals growing on top of an extinct volcanic cone that took thousands of years to develop.
With that fact, do we even need to market this to the scuba divers? ☺
