Malaysia is one of the most diverse countries in the world, a melting pot of multiple faiths and cultures living side by side in harmony and peace. You have 21st Century architecture in bustling Kuala Lumpur where the mighty twin Petronas Towers reach towards the sky dwarfing the city center below. In contrast, Malaysia has many islands dotted around its coastline where relaxing in world class hotels is the order of the day, whilst North of Kuala Lumpur you have the Taman Negara rainforest, untouched for centuries.
Malaysia also governs the North West of Borneo which it shares with Brunei and Indonesia and offers the intrepid traveler a glimpse of what once was. Head-hunters in Sarawak, Deer cave near Miri made famous by David Attenborough and of course the Orang-utans, which in Malay means the people of the forest, who are protected now in Borneo and at the forefront of Asia’s efforts of conservation.
