What’s Special about Malaysia?

Aside from its pristine beaches, ancient rainforests and beguiling wildlife, Malaysia boasts a rich cultural tapestry shaped by various Malay kingdoms and its role as a commercial hub for international trade. Astounding diversity is the watchword in Malaysia, from its natural wonders to its cultural delights.


Well accustomed to travelers, the people of Malaysia take pride in their nation’s recent development and their polished skills at hospitality. You’ll find a happy medium of comfort, convenience and adventure here.


Hot and humid year round, Malaysia does offer microclimates according to region and topography. While Borneo sees the most rain from October to February, the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia gets its monsoon season from April to October.


While Malaysia’s religious leanings keep raucous nightlife at bay, you’ll find amazing ways to stay entertained in the cities and in the wild. Discover world-class shopping in Kuala Lumpur, sumptuous cuisine in Penang and river safaris in Sabah.


On our private Malaysia tours, you’ll have the chance to revel in the local tribal customs, Chinese and Indian immigrant traditions, European colonial architecture, and the myriad languages, cuisines and religions that coexist here.


On any crowded street you’re bound to hear Malay, Hindi, Chinese—and perhaps even a tribal language or two. English is widely used, and you’ll also find traces of Dutch and Portuguese in the names of places and foods.


Humans are thought to have inhabited Malaysia for some 40,000 years. While the various branches of the Orang Asli are thought to be the first indigenous inhabitants, a heady mix of Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic and European histories have also taken root.
