They say Malaysia is truly Asia and I think they definitely got the slogan right. From bustling cities like KL to hawker food heaven in Penang, this vibrant country has got it all.
Malaysia is one of South East Asia’s most postcard-worthy and exciting holiday destinations and it’s a place where there truly is something for everyone.

This amazing part of the world boasts amazing shopping, culture and food that changes depending on which part of the country you’re visiting. Uber has made it to Malaysia, so it’s also super cheap and easy to get around.
Malaysia is a proud and traditional country. Chinese, Indian and Malay cultures and cuisines entwine to create a tantalising experience.
There’s so much to do in Malaysia: get in amongst the hustle of Kuala Lumpur and shop until you drop, take a day trip out to the Batu Caves and see some of Malaysia’s natural beauty or head out to Langkawi for a beach side getaway.
Most of all, foodies and explorers alike will fall in love with Penang where hawker food is plentiful and fresh and costs next to nothing.
In addition, Georgetown is the place to be to see colourful colonial buildings that look great in photos. Penang is also the site of a recent uprising of street art that is every where you look around the town.
