What an experience of a lifetime, visiting Malaysia, especially the islands. You get to see many cultures as Malaysia is inhabited by Chinese Malaysians, Indian Malaysians and Malay Malaysians. Which each have their own sub culture within this enormous culture. You will have no trouble travelling as there is abundance of public transport, trains buses the taxi's are very expensive so be careful as some do not use meters especially on islands. The food is wide a varied any from western to Indian to Malaysian style curries. Each with their distinctive flavours. oh and for the buses always have the right amount as it does not give change. English is spoken at most places, thus you will be understood very easily if you can speak English. Keep safe travelers and Enjoy Malaysia travel everywhere and use the home stays or back packers they are cheap and there are loads of them especially on the islands

Malaysia has an awesome mix of Chinese, Malay, and Indian influences and is reflected in its various displays of religion, government, neighborhoods and foods. While there are tensions between the three ethnic groups, the coexistence of living side by side makes Malaysia a fascinating area to visit. It's the only country I've encountered thus far where I can easily see a Chinese Buddhist temple, mosque, and Hindu temple along one street. You can hear the call to Muslim prayer several times a day while seeing Chinese folks bringing incense to their temples. Plus, the food is amazing and is considered one of the best in the world. Most backpackers tend to ignore Malaysia on the Southeast Asia circuit and go to Thailand or Bali instead. It's unfortunate because Malaysia is such a fascinating country.

The ‘Land of Contrasts’, Malaysia is undoubtedly one of the most sought after holiday destinations in South-Asia. It’s a land that boasts of gleaming skyscrapers, heritage quarters and offers unforgettable experiences to visitors who come to explore its magical landscape. No wonder innumerable tourists search for cheap Malaysia flights each year to experience a land that is famous the world over for its serene beaches and enchanting natural beauty.

Malaysia has always captured my imagination but I've always found it to be disappointing. I've visited KL (2x), Sabah, Penang, Langkawi and Melaka. Each has its charm but nothing I've seen in Malaysia rivals what is on offer in nearby Thailand or Indonesia. The "Malaysia Truly Asia" commercials have certainly done a good job of raising interest but I'd only choose Malaysia if you've seen the rest of the region and just want to demystify it.
I haven't gone to Pulau Sipadan or Pulau Tioman but friends rave about these. I do like KL. I also liked Mt. Kinabalu and the Turtle Islands. Langkawi, Penang, and Melaka are nice.. they just aren't as nice as other places.
The food in Malaysia is exceptional and KL is a great place to enjoy it. Malaysia also has great infrastructure and is easy to get around.
I like it... but I love other places in the region.

A country with a multi-racial and vibrant culture. There are a wide variety of tourist spots to check out. For nature-lovers, the caves, coral reefs, tropical rain forests and islands will excite you. For city hoppers, skyscrapers and shopping malls in the heart of Kuala Lumpur will satisfy all your shopping, foodspotting and exploration desire.
As a country with multiple races, you will also get a chance to try a wide variety of food and cuisines, ALL IN ONE COUNTRY!

My last trip here was a whirlwind of activity and familiar faces. Unfortunately though one of them was in love with my sister at the time though it was nonreciprocated we all had a great time nonetheless. There's a lot of culture and modernization to enjoy. And we parties till 4am.
