Malaysia – an Experience like No Other in Southeast Asia

If you are a tourist looking to experience life in Southeast Asia, then you should consider visiting Malaysia. It is a country that is well renowned for its beautiful and expansive beaches; thick, beautiful and largely untouched rainforests; and really friendly disposition to cultures from all around the world. In fact, the country itself is a potpourri of different cultures including Malay, which are the natives, Chinese, European, and Indian. All of these influence its culture to a certain extent and people from all over the world will definitely feel at home amidst them all.

In case you are wondering what it is that is fascinating about this country, the following should give you an idea. They are sure to pique your interest and make you want to visit as soon as you can manage it.

Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia and it is, therefore, a prime location to take in some of the beautiful sights that this country has to offer. One of such sights is the Petronas Twin Towers, which were allegedly the tallest buildings in the entire world from 1998 until 2004 when it was knocked off this pedestal by Taipei 101. It is built using a postmodern Islamic architecture style which further supports Malaysia's supposed acceptance of all cultures. This 88-story structural masterpiece is one of the most memorable landmarks in the country; it is, therefore, a must see.

What's more, it is connected by a sky-bridge, which makes it even more suitable for the adventure-minded traveler.

Check out some Singapore to Kuala Lumpur flights here today.

Genting Highlands

Genting Highlands is a region of granites mountains that make up Peninsula Malaysia's north-south backbone. This region is basically the Las Vegas of Malaysia and it features several attractions designed to help tourists have the best fun of their lives. There are several casinos, nightlife attractions, and luxury hotels to experience and have fun at, with Resorts World being one of the foremost. It is also home to First World Hotel, which was, as at 2006, the largest hotel in the whole wide world, according to the Guinness Book Records. For a full list of Genting Highlands hotels, check here out.

Lastly, Genting Highlands also features several cave temples which gives you an insight into some of the religions practiced in the region. You will also find skyways, theme parks, and several eye-catching, and memorable places to visit.

Batu Caves

The Batu Caves are an absolute must see for people who are touring Malaysia. While Hinduism is a religion that is mostly restricted to India, there are notable shrines in other parts of the world, one of which is in these caves. Your experience starts right from the mouth of the caves where a 140 ft high status of Lord Murugan - a Hindu deity - constructed of steel, concrete, and gold paint sits. The complex consists of three mains caves and several smaller ones. Of the three major caves here, the biggest requires tourists, and devotees of Murugan, to climb 272 steps. This series of caves is fun to explore and it has several attractions including Hindu statues and paintings, among others.

Other fun places to visit in Malaysia include Mount Kinabalu, Redang Island, Taman Negara, Langkawi Sky Bridge, and Kek Lok Si Temple, among others.

Malaysia is a country for the adventurous tourist who is interested in seeing nature as it can be, and also to enjoy the wonders of civilization.
