Hello guys! How is life going? Guys, I am so glad to share with you my Top 10 places to visit in Malaysia. Malaysia is a super beautiful and diverse country. It`s a mix of Asian and European cultures together. Each city has its own history, tradition, and culture.
1. My all-time favorite place is Genting Highland,
just a 1-hour drive from KL and you are in an amazing hills area. There you can
visit a Buddhist temple, discover paradise and hell through the funny
exponents. But the main reason to travel there is the weather. After hot,
tropical Kuala Lumpur I am urging to feel cold temperature and breathe some
clean, mountain air. Plus, in Genting, you can enjoy cableway from the biggest
mall to the temple. Also, you can find inside the mall an amusement park and
even experience SNOW WORLD. Perfect place to hang out with friends the whole
2. Penang. This island is enormously huge. You will need a minimum of one week to explore at least half of the city. Did you know that originally mamaks (traditional Malaysian street food serving cafes) came from Penang? The food is incredible here, and prices totally affordable especially for students. My advice to all of you guys, go to Mamak at the front of the beach and order some seafood, you will thank me later. BTW George Town is a must-visit, only here you can see street graffiti made by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic. If you do not trust my words go and check this link https://penangfoodie.com/instagram-worthy-penang-2019/, you will find gorgeous views and historical important buildings.
Langkawi is an archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast. Surrounded by the turquoise sea, the interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills. If you’re intent on carting off duty-free goods, clothes, and chocolate, then this is the place to be. Still, nature lovers will find the island just as agreeable as the shoreline is fringed by powder-fine sand and swaying coconut trees.
The island is especially recognized for its excellent diving opportunities and this tropical gem hides a treasure trove of other exciting holiday opportunities. From the expansive Underwater World Langkawi along Pantai Cenang to the soaring Cable Car in Pantai Kok, Langkawi is an electrifying locale that keeps visitors coming back for more.
Perhentian islands Northeast of Peninsular Malaysia, nearby the city of Kota Bharu, there are two small islands that form the Perhentian Islands. The names are Perhentian Besar, the larger of the two and popular among couples and families with children, and Perhentian Kecil, the smaller island. Both the islands have plenty of accommodation available to stay overnight. This ranges from luxurious resorts that offer cabanas complete with air-conditioning, to simple lodges where you will have to do with cold water and a fan. There are no (internationally renowned) hotels. Perhentian is most popular because of the great places for diving and snorkeling; in most cases, you can enjoy the underwater world right in front of the resort. It is also very popular because the island is easy to reach.
Pulau Redang is a small island group in the South Chinese Sea, on the east side of Peninsular Malaysia. Redang lies within protected marine waters, also known as Terengganu Marine Park. It lies about 45 kilometers from the coast of the city of Kuala Terengganu. Next to the main island of Redang are many other smaller surrounding islands. The island is surrounded by crystal clear water and has various beautiful diving possibilities for the aficionados. You can also snorkel around the island; the coral reefs are in good health. Redang usually is not too crowded, though during local school holidays and public holidays it can get very busy on the island. Because Redang is part of a Marine Park, all visitors have to pay a marine park entrance fee of RM5 upon arrival.
6. Cameron Highland
Cameron Highlands is the most popular of the highland retreats in Malaysia. Located at almost 2,000 meters at its highest point, Camerons offers visitors a moderate climate with daytime temperatures averaging around 25°C and 18°C at night. This makes the environment conducive for growing continental plants, fruits, and vegetables while providing a cool escape for city-dwellers. The township of Camerons is itself divided into Tanah Rata, Brinchang, and Ringlet. In a short story the perfect escape from busy KL.
7) Batu Caves
The Batu Caves are possibly one of the best places to see in Kuala Lumpur – well, for caves at least! Perched just on the outskirts of the city, it’s one place you have to visit when in the city. Just be ready with some comfy shoes, there are literally hundreds of steps to climb (but it’s totally worth it).
Malacca is the historical state of Malaysia, rich with heritage buildings, ancient landmarks, and colonial structures. It was here that colonial forces first made contact with Malaysia, which eventually shaped the country into its current economic and political system.
Today, in Malacca, you can still see the imprints of British, Dutch, and Portuguese forces left behind in forts, museums, churches, and towers. Visit Malacca for the cultural experience of a lifetime.
10) Sultan Abdul Samad Building
With its Moorish architecture and stunning staircases, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building is one lovely building you should see in the city. Now, you won’t spend too long here but it’s well worth a little gander as you traipse around Kuala Lumper.
