Malaysia Travel Info
Looking for an Asian destination? Or planning a tour of Asia? Malaysia should definitely top your list. Situated in the heart of Southeast Asia, Malaysia is a tropical delight.
Separated into two regions, the Malay Peninsula and Borneo,
Malaysia has much to offer those looking for a quiet retreat or those
who are looking to experience the Asian urban metropolis. The eastern
coast of Malaysia is lined with picturesque beaches of golden sand and
emerald-green waters. Or for something different, visit the black sand
beaches of Pantai Pasir Hitam. With over a hundred tropical islands within
the borders of Malaysia, you can swim, surf, snorkel or just watch the
sunset over the South China Sea. Book your beach getaway on one of the
many tropical travel packages to Malaysia available through Direct Flights.
Besides its endless beaches, the Malaysian cityscape is also legendary. Towering 452 metres above street level, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur cannot be missed. An awesome feat of architecture, these towers have helped establish Malaysia’s status internationally. Go up one of the 10 passenger lifts to the Skybridge and take in the glittering view of Kuala Lumpur. Entry is free but make sure to arrive early as there is usually a queue for tickets.
There are many choices for Malaysian accommodation; there are many international hotel chains, such as the Shangri-La with its luxurious views of the Petronas Twin Towers, and whose deluxe room rates are comparable to economy room rates in other large cities. Cheap accommodation in Malaysia is definitely not hard to find, especially in Kuala Lumpur or Penang. For a taste of old-world luxury, Carcossa Seri Negara, a 102-year old mansion perched above the hills of Kuala Lumpur, is highly recommended, even by Queen Elizabeth II who had stayed there a few years ago.
A cheap Malaysian holiday is not complete without indulging yourself in the country’s delicious and inexpensive food. Take a trip down Little China or Little India and have some roti canai or nasi lemak. A mix of Chinese, Indian and Malay foods, Malaysian cuisine is one of the best in all of Southeast Asia.
