malaysiaMalaysia is a Southeast Asian country occupying the Malaysian Peninsula and part of the island of Borneo. It’s known for its beaches, rainforests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences.

The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such as Bukit Bintang, and skyscrapers including the iconic 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers, whilst the rest of the country has the secluded beauty of many secretive islands. Malaysia has so much to offer.
