Malaysia is a fascinating fusion of experiences with Malay, Chinese, and Indian cultures of peninsular Malaysia on the west side of the South China Sea, dense jungle and tribal peoples on the island of Borneo to the east. From modern Kuala Lumpur to Mt. Kinabalu, a range of activities can be found, both outside and in.
A visit to Malaysia is not complete without diving into its outstanding food, especially that found on the west coast of the peninsula. Situated on an important trade route, it is a melting pot of culinary influences. Sampling the Chinese-Malay Nonya cuisine is a must.
