HIGHLIGHTS OF BORNEO-MALAYSIA

Image result for travel malaysia

Nature and civilization, together at last

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.
