You're certainly in for a treat when you visit amazing Malaysia. This country in Southeast Asia has so much to offer, you'll have a hard time deciding on what to focus on. Longer stays in Malaysia are recommended, as you'll need time in both Eastern and Western Malaysia to dig deep into the rainforest on a Kinabatangang river cruise, enjoy the local cuisine (lemon tea bing and char kway teow from local corner shops = highly recommended), meet the 'man of the forest' which is what orangutan means in Malay, dive with whale sharks and greenback turtles, and last but not least, sit back and enjoy the sunset overlooking the South China Sea with a fresh cool coconut in your hand!
We had a hard time deciding on the 8 best activities in Malaysia, but here's the ultimate list of adventures in both Western (the part of Malaysia where Kuala Lumpur is) and Eastern (Borneo) Malaysia. Get ready to explore Malaysia!
