Discover a wonderfully rich multicultural and environmentally diverse country in South East Asia. From its lush rainforests and pristine beaches, ancient temples, and mystical shrines, to thriving futuristic cities, Malaysia offers something for every style of traveler. In the mountainous region of Sarawak, you will find the Gunung Mulu National Park, home to the largest cave system in the world. Malaysia is believed to contain almost 20 per cent of the world’s animal species, and the reefs and marine environments surrounding the country are some of the most biodiverse waters in the world. Kuala Lumpur is the country’s capital and largest city, where you will find the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers. In the north, the city of George Town remains the country’s historic and cultural hub; the city center was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. Established as a British settlement in the late 1700s, today the city contains an eclectic mix of colonial and traditional Asian architectural styles and is fast becoming known as a foodie destination for its ubiquitous street food.
Malaysia comprises of two regions, the Malay Peninsula south of Thailand and East Malaysia on the island of Borneo, separated by approximately 640 miles of the South China Sea. Most of the population lives on the Malay Peninsula, where the capital Kuala Lumpur is located. The official language is Malaysian, while English, Chinese, and Tamil are also widely spoken. Malaysia was a British colony during the 19th and early 20th century and became independent in 1957. The country enjoys a temperate tropical climate. Monsoon season usually runs from October to February, while the dry season lasts from April until October. Average temperatures range from around 65 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
