A beautiful country with a rich cultural heritage that blends Asian and European influence, Malaysia offers many attractions. We list some of the best cultural and natural sights, venues and locations in Malaysia. So, let’s began.
Kuala Lumpur’s Central Market is a bustling, colorful market packed with stalls. In Malaysia, the stalls are grouped in lorongs (lanes) based on the main ethnic races (most notably, Chinese, Malay and Indian), and sell a myriad handmade crafts, from clothes to wooden carvings and jewelry to batik fabrics; all alongside plenty of street food options. The market also contains the Annexe, a space reserved for art galleries showcasing the work of local artists.
The main island of a group of 99 is Langkawi which form the archipelago with the same name. Often overlooked, especially by Western tourists, in favor of the better-known Thai islands and Singapore, Langkawi offers breathtaking scenery with its beautiful beaches, crystal-clear water, coastal mangrove swamps and fine sand. The inland areas are no less striking; the tropical jungles are thick with luxuriant vegetation and rich in fauna (the island’s name itself indicates an eagle with characteristic reddish feathers), and largely untouched rainforest will impress nature lovers looking for a pristine.
George Town :
The capital city of Penang is George Town, an island state in Malaysi awith the biggest Chinese population. But for the British, Penang was an important trade center and the city of George Town in particular, named after Britain’s King George III, is a fascinating testament to the mix of Asian and European influences that the island experienced over the course of its history. Elsewhere skyscrapers rise high above the city. George Town’s multicultural past is especially enshrined in the city’s rich and eclectic architecture, filled with enchanting, historical buildings, mostly situated in the oldest part of the town.
A Famosa :
In Malacca, A Famosa (Portuguese for ‘The Famous’) is a historical fortress the capital city of the Malaysian Malacca state. Built in the early 1500s and continually expanded over the course of that century, with only the entrance gatehouse, the four-towered fortress is now a ruin to see. Malacca City offers other interesting sights, such as the Stadthuys, the 17th-century residence of the Dutch governor, and Jonker Street, popular for its many shops and restaurants.
Petronas Twin Towers
In a country with a rich and beautiful natural landscape, Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers stand out as an unusual example of Malaysia’s urban design excellence. Designed by American architecture star César Pelli and officially inaugurated in 1999, until 2004 the towers were the tallest buildings in the world. The towers’ most impressive feature is the double-decker bridge that connects them on the 41st and 42nd floors. Visitors can enjoy a spectacular view of the city below their feet from the bridge, at 170 meters above ground.
Sea lovers planning to visit Malaysia should put the Perhentian Islands on the top of their list of places to see. This island beach resort is set among lush green surroundings, and can be found directly across from beautiful white sandy beaches. Guests can enjoy walks in the outdoor gardens. This is a small archipelago with two main islands; Besar, the bigger, and Kecil, the smaller. The charming wooden chalets at Perhentian Island Resort all include tea and coffee making facilities, as well as a private balcony with views of the ocean, while upscale suites add a bath tub. Apart from tourists, the islands are mostly uninhabited, making them a perfect place to disconnect and take a break from modern life. The Perhentian Islands are especially recommended to those who enjoy the sea not just for a swim, but also for water activities such as canoeing (both islands can be circumnavigated in a day), scuba diving and snorkeling. Perhentian Island Resort features two on-site restaurants, where guests can enjoy both local and international cuisine, while on-site barbeque facilities are also available.
