About Malaysia

Malaysia is a multicultural country with much to offer visitors–regardless of their budget or what their idea of fun might be. Kuala Lumpur, the country's capital, is a cosmopolitan city with amazing shopping and stunning architecture–within blocks, you'll find both the ultramodern Petronas Towers and several colonial palaces and buildings.

Malaysia is divided into 13 states and 3 federal territories inclusive of Peninsular Malaysia, East Malaysia, and the island of Labuan. An outstanding feature of Malaysia is the stark contrasts between its developed and natural attractions. Skyscrapers tower over wooden houses while hotels are located not far from beautiful beaches.

Just a short drive away from the capital, there are plenty of things to do–from islands, mountains, and record-breaking caves to countless temples and a unique chance to explore the fauna-rich jungle of Borneo.

For a refreshing new adventure, there is no better place than Malaysia.
