To know Malaysia is to love Malaysia, bustling melting-pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live in peace and harmony. This multiculturalism has made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise and home to hundreds of colourful festivals. As a people, Malaysians are very relaxed, warm and friendly.
Geographically, Malaysia is almost as diverse as its culture. One of Malaysia's key attractions is its extreme contrasts which further add to this theme of 'diversity'. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts while five-star hotels sit just metres away from ancient reefs.
Malaysia will invigorate and surprise you, from its picture-perfect beaches and sumptuous cuisine to adventure activities and eclectic cities. For the perfect holiday full of surprises, the time is now, the place is Malaysia.
