Reasons to Visit
Malaysia`s picture perfect white sand beaches and year round travel season means they are the envy of their Southeast Asian neighbours! From the private island of Pangkor Laut, long quiet beaches around Kuala Terengganu, popular white sand beaches on Langkawi and hidden gems on small islands off the East coast.
UNESCO sites Malacca and George Town were once cities which rose from humble fishing villages to become major centres of the spice trade. Four centuries of European influence have left behind rich cultural icons including Dutch churches, remnants of ruined Portuguese and British fortresses and imposing town halls.
Enjoy the peace and solitude around the Cameron Highlands, following jungle trails to streams, lakes and waterfalls, or take time to visit one of the nearby tea plantations.
Explore Taman Negara National Park on foot, by boat and even 25 metres up in the jungle on a canopy walkway. Climb Teresik Hill, swim in the water holes around the rapids of Lata Berkoh or just walk amongst the flora of the oldest rainforest in the world.
A foodies delight! Malaysia is a true melting pot of cultures and the Indian, Chinese and Malay influence is strongly evident in the food. Places like Penang, Malacca and Kuala Lumpur have hawkers stalls and local restaurants on every corner. Eating really is a national hobby here so get involved!

Accessible by boat or a short flight from Kuala Lumpur, these twin islands lie off the west coast of Perak Province.
The jetty is just three hours by road from Kuala Lumpur and, of the two islands, the more beautiful and exclusive Pangkor Laut is home to the most luxurious accommodation.
With just one resort the island is pristine, from the jungle and its lush tropical blooms and bright, flitting shapes of countless birds to the soft sand beaches and the offshore coral reefs.
Nearby Pangkor Island is an emerging destination with some fine new accommodation options and a small airport with direct flights to Subang airport near KL.
