Destination Overview

The great mix of Malay, Chinese, Indians and Europeans all living and working together also provides a great opportunity to experience the amazing cultural depth that Kuala Lumpur has to offer.

Malaysia is part of the Malay Peninsula in southeast Asia. It’s mostly covered by forest, which provides the world with ebony, sandalwood, teak, and other woods. The inhabited regions filled with a diverse and vibrant culture. In Malaysia, you’ll find the juxtaposition of old and new with skyscrapers next to wooden stilt homes; and a temperate exchange from rugged mountaintops to sandy beaches. You would be hard pressed to not find something to like about Malaysia.
