ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Malaysia is one of Asia's most culturally and geographically diverse countries. Its multiculturalism features a melting pot of religions and races, including Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups who live together in peace and harmony.
There are two areas of Malaysia offering distinct experiences, almost like two countries in one. The peninsula, where the exciting city of Kuala Lumpur is situated, offers some of the best cuisines in the world. The island of Borneo is home to jungles, granite peaks, orangutans and fabulous resorts.
A few significant points-of-interest in Malaysia include Taman Negara National Park, with its gigantic trees, plants and colorful wildlife; Sabah's state parks and stunning Mount Kinabalu; the world's largest orangutan sanctuary near the town of Sandakan and Sarawak's collection of national parks.
