Malaysia Travel Guide
A Quick Intro to Malaysia
When I think of Malaysia the first thing that springs to mind is the food. Give me a plate of crispy roti canai and a cup of frothy teh tarik and I’m a happy bunny. From beef rendang and assam laksa to ais kacing and onde-onde Malaysia has hundreds of authentic dishes to try and is famous for its street food.
Your first stop in Malaysia will likely be Kuala Lumpur, which is home to attractions such as the Batu Caves, the Petronas Twin Towers and the Petaling Street flea market. If you want to sample Malaysian cuisine, head to Jalan Alor food street, which is filled with casual restaurants serving all sorts of mouth watering dishes.
Sadly most tourists seem to just visit Kuala Lumpur as a stopover on their way to other countries Southeast Asia. Which is a shame because Malaysia is a fantastic country that has lots of incredible places to visit.
Sip tea in the Cameron Highlands, ride a colorful trishaw in Malacca, hike Mount Kinabalu, drive around the island of Langkawi or relax and unwind in the Perhentian Islands. And if you have enough time on your Malaysia itinerary, make sure you hop on a flight to Borneo to spot adorable orangutans in their natural habitat.
Malaysia is one of those countries that often gets overlooked while destinations like Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam grab all the attention. Yet it’s a really fantastic and underrated country that’s worth putting on your bucket list.
