There is luxury, entertainment, history and culture as soon as you make your presence in Malaysia. For now, we will stop talking and let the following 6 reasons to visit this glorious state better motivate you:
- Beautiful Landscapes
To say that Malaysia has ginormous landscapes doesn’t do it any justice at all. The pristine beaches, the verdant rainforests and idyllic tropical islands as far as the eye can see are what draws us in. Go on a trek of Mount Kinabalu in Borneo, which is the highest peak of South Asia and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
There is a mess of flora and fauna to go looking for as well as other activities such as snorkeling and scuba diving, which is a favorite for tourists.
- See Some Of The World’s Best Skyscrapers
If you wanted to see something with a view, try one of the world’s tallest and popular skyscrapers known as the Petronas Twin Towers for a change. For a splendid panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur, it is an absolute must for you to go to the sky bridge that connects the two massive towers.
Be sure to come and visit the bridge when the times are appropriate. You can get gorgeous views of the city in both day and night.
- Massive Wildlife
Malaysia is also largely known for is incredible wildlife. You will find an array of fauna at national parks, landscapes and natural getaways that are fit for scuba divers who wish to explore the mysteries of the deep. Borneo is your best bet to discovering over 700 bird species and 200 mammal species.
You can also give Kuala Lumpur’s FRIM forest reserve a shot to see a school of butterflies and troop of monkeys as much as you like.
- The Black Hole Of Shopping
The title is worth it when you get a load of the shopping centers and how crowded they can get. Next to Dubai, Malaysia has the greatest pull of shoppers from the locals and foreigners. You can get just about anything that recently caught your attention from advertisements and commercials.
If you wish to give yourself a real shopping treat, then it is imperative that you head out to the Berjaya Times Square. It is insanely large and includes a ton of stuff that you can shop for and places for you to dine at. Under all of this, it is also a five-star hotel.
- Food That You Can Drool All Over For
What is better than eating something that comes with variety and authenticity? Well that is exactly what Malaysia is cooking up. It combines two of the world’s most renowned cuisines; Chinese and Indian. The Chinese food here comes with a splash of variety that you cannot find in other West-Cantonese themed Chinese restaurants.
The Indian cuisine is mostly southern Indian, which is lighter and spicier than northern food. Other than that, there are lots of cultural delicacies that Malaysia is hailed to provide. Start your feast with Chinese-Malay ‘Nonya’, and then switch to Indian curries, Chinese buffets, Malay food stalls and then the Western delight.
- The Locals Are Open And Very Friendly
There may be a few bad seeds everywhere, but Malaysia boasts some of the more generous and hospitable folk that you’ll ever encounter anywhere in your life. The locals of Malaysia are virtually ready to welcome visitors from all around the world and will gladly help out whenever we get ourselves into a pickle.
If you are planning your next trip now, we sincerely hope that Malaysia is on your radar for the time being.
