Where cultures collide with joyous results
Whether you seek flora or fauna, urban or rural, highland or island, vibes or tribes Malaysia will oblige. Nature lovers will relish the chance to encounter elephants, monkeys, tapirs and 350 species of birds at Taman Negara, Malaysia’s oldest national park, while culture fans will enjoy the urban distractions of Kuala Lumpur and the historic port towns of the west coast. Cool mountain air, hiking trails and emerald green tea plantations greet you in the colonial outposts of the Cameron Highlands, and a sprinkling of dreamy tropical islands encircle the peninsula, tempting beachcombers to linger.
