Close your eyes and imagine rustling treetops, swinging lianas, screams of the monkeys, sounds of the ocean. Put on the flippers and watch the colorful fish under the blue water surface.

We can also move to the city and admire the modern architecture that is a fascinating contrast to the jungle. Welcome to Malaysia!

Why should you experience Malaysia at least once?
Malaysia is one of the places that does not have to strive for anything, its existence is enough. Its unique nature, architecture and overall atmosphere will immediately inspire you. You could easily plan a program in Malaysia for a few weeks. Or you can simply choose from these activities and places. We will not be at all surprised if you want to return to Malaysia in the future.
Get lost in wonderfull caves
Local beauties include, for example, caves. On Borneo Island is Gunung Mulu National Park, whose history tells of 3,000 year old formations. On a guided tour you can visit the Turtle Cave, a cave known as the Paradise Garden or the Wind Caves. Near Kuala Lumpur, you will be impressed by the Batu Caves, which are formed by limestone and offer hiking opportunities with beautiful views.
Malaysia is a tropical country with a warm climate and miles of coastline. Of course, there is no shortage of beautiful beaches here. You can find them on the mainland but also on the islands, which are most popular with beach lovers. Langkawi is a place very popular with tourists. If you want to visit a place where there are probably far fewer tourists, choose Redang. The beautiful local scenery also offers a peaceful refuge for turtles.
Malaysia is a dream of hiking and wildlife lovers
If you like long walks and wandering around the country, you are at the right place. One of the best hikes is Mount Kinabalu, which stretches for miles of hiking trails across six vegetation zones. If you want to go to the very top, count on two days and an overnight stay in a campsite.
A large part of Malaysia is undeveloped and gives space and freedom to wildlife. You can watch animals, for example, in Taman Negara National Park. You will find tapirs, wild boars, deer, monkeys, many birds and insects, as well as beautiful waterfalls and treetop walkways. In Borneo, you can experience elephants, tigers, rhinos and orangutans on guided tours.
Exciting Kuala Lumpur
The capital Kuala Lumpur is a fascinating example of modern architecture. Today’s skyscrapers form one of the most iconic Asian horizons. Head to the twin towers of Petronas in the district known as Golden Trianle. They have 88 floors and measure almost 452 meters. They used to be the tallest buildings in the world. Today they are connected by a bridge in the clouds.Photo source: Shutterstock, Dreamstime, Unsplash.com
