A cultural fusion marrying the best of three cultures, Malaysia's native Malay, South Indian, and Chinese influences combine like a delicious Penang soup. Blessed with modern cities, ample nature, and the solid infrastructure required to get you between the two, Malaysia is varied and stress-free. Hike through tea plantations to jungle waterfalls, stroll the white-sand beaches of Langkawi or scuba dive off idyllic Tioman island. Spot jungle wildlife from treetop hideouts in Teman Negara National Park, digest Penang's open-air food stall markets or live it up in modern, vibrant KL. Think you've seen it all? There's still the "other" Malaysia: the states of Sabah and Sarawak, separated by 1,000km (621 mi) of sea, carved out of Borneo's enormous jungle expanse.
Malaysia has a wide range of tourist attractions. The sheer diversity of tourism destinations is astounding. These include the high-tech city of Kuala Lumpur, tropical island of Langkawi, colonial hill stations of Genting and Cameron Highlands, numerous pristine beaches, National Parks, and the world's oldest tropical rainforests. Malaysia has the potential of catering to tourist of every hue and it truly lives up to its tag line of Malaysia Truly Asia.
