Malaysia

© photo: by Khalzuri
Dubbed as “Truly Asia” for its eclectic racial and cultural groups, it is a country with natural wonders, beautiful islands, pristine beaches, colorful festivals and unique culinary delights.
Malaysia, a multicultural and diverse nation with a panoramic vista of sparkling blue water beaches, lush rainforest and the vibrant capital city of Kuala Lumpur with a skyline dominated by the stunning Petronas Twin Towers. Located in the heart of South East Asia, Malaysia lacks none of the raison d’etre that attracts and awes visitors to Asia.
