The Ten Must Visit Places in Malaysia

Written by admin

Malaysia is a country located in the South East Asian region neighbouring Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei, where various ethnic culture blend together. Formerly known as Tanah Melayu or Malaya before the formation of Malaysia back in 1963, the country achieved independence from the British Empire on 31st August 1957. After nearly six decades, Malaysia is now a bustling tourist destination with many different attractions that will dazzle just about anybody. Malacca should be on every tourist’s top ten must visit places as it is not only a state rich with history, but offers fun and relaxation in many different forms. Jonker Walk is one example. As its name suggests, this attraction is located at Jonker Street, Malacca’s very own Chinatown. The Stadthuys, a historical structure with a clock tower situated in the centre of the city. The building is famous for its red exterior and Dutch architecture. The Red Square is worth a visit if one ever visits Malacca. If a bustling metropolitan or city isn’t something that appeals to you, then Pulau Redang should provide the leisure you seek. Located in Terengganu, north of Peninsula Malaysia, the island is one of the largest in the country and is known for its beautiful beaches. Mabul Island, which is located on the east coast of Sabah is a good alternative if you are exploring East Malaysia. The island is only 30 minutes away via boat from Tawau. However, Mabul Island isn’t exactly what one would call a ‘modern’ as it lacks modern amenities and infrastructure so those who are adventurous or simply wish to be disconnected from the computing world (temporarily) should visit Mabul Island. One’s trip to Malaysia would not be complete without visiting the capital of the country – Kuala Lumpur. The bustling metropolitan offers everything from a tour of Taman Negara, known as the oldest tropical rainforest in the world, to the ever lively Bukit Bintang, the city’s most popular shopping district. Alternative shopping areas include Petaling Street, KL’s Chinatown or if you wish to take it a step further, Mid Valley Megamall, the largest shopping centre in South East Asia, should blow you away. Malaysia is not only a country full of diversity, with people from various ethnic backgrounds living together in harmony, but one that is famous for its food so whether it’s Malay, Indian, Chinese or even Western food, lots of restaurant offer just about everything. If you love food and wish to see the cultural fusion between different ethnics, Malaysia should be your choice of destination.
