Malaysia has so many different facets - both areas of this South-East Asian country, divided by the China Sea, are well worth a visit!First of all, dynamic Western Malaysia, a peninsula on the Asian continent: this is home to the bustling capital, Kuala Lumpur, with its ultra-modern high-rise buildings, and to the breathtaking jungle which can be explored in the Taman Negara National Park. The coastline along the Malaysian peninsula is home to white sandy beaches and old colonial trading posts, such as beautifully preserved Melaka, while offshore, idyllic islands tempt scuba divers and visitors looking for a truly relaxing holiday. b>And then there's the more hidden Eastern Malaysia on the island of Borneo, with its hospitable local inhabitants of Sarawak and delightful footpaths through the Kelabit Highlands. The parks and nature reserves here remind us that Malaysia boasts some of the richest flora and fauna in the world - its primary forest is home to the last orangutans on the planet. Finally, as you explore this fascinating country, take time to sample its delicious cuisine with a huge variety of dishes which reflect the diversity of its local inhabitants.
