Malaysia

Tropical culture.

If there were ever an award for the easiest nation to visit in Southeast Asia, Malaysia would be very much in the running. Its geography, which offers forested countryside, mountains, and beautiful beaches on its west and east coasts, and its location, south of Thailand and north of Singapore and Indonesia, make it an ideal place to travel to and a wonderful jumping-off spot. And its trains, planes, and car rental services (or, if you prefer, chauffeur-driven, make getting around pretty straightforward. A prosperous country marked by British colonialism, Malaysia, a federation of thirteen states, features a mix of ethnic groups that give it a unique feel: about half are Malays, living along Chinese, Indians, and indigenous peoples. So, as you might expect, restaurants, whether in the westernized capital of Kuala Lumpur or in the lush countryside offer a tantalizing mix of dishes. Be sure to visit the island of Penang, known as the "Pearl of the Orient," which combines the old and the new in an exotic setting. It can be reached by direct international flights, by bridge from the mainland, or by a 20-minute ferry ride (recommended if you’re coming by train from Thailand).

  • Petronas Twin Towers: it's really awesome!! With 88 levels, the builidings are well-known as the icon of Kuala Lumpur. Don't forget to pay a visit the shopping mall inside these towers. ^^

  • Maly ist immer eine Reise wert !! Ich fahre ca. 1 Mal pro Woche von Singapore aus nach Maly. Mal hoch bis Ipol or Faser Hill dann nur bis JB. 2 kleine Wehrmutstropfen, die Polizei ist käuflich und damit kein wirklicher Schutz. 2tens hier gibts in Hülle und Fülle Seafood, frisch vor der Küste gefangen. ... nur leider werden auch die Fäkalien oft ungeklärt unmittelbar an den Fanggründen ins Meer eingeleitet. .. also ich, obwohl ich Seafood liebe ess das Zeug nicht.Liebe Grüsse aus SingaporeFalko
