MALAYSIA TRAVEL GUIDE
Plan your trip to Malaysia
One of Malaysia’s tourist attractions, which I’m sure you’ve heard of, are the Petronas Towers. The towers were built in 1998. They were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 till 2003. Today, the Petronas remain one of the country’s main attractions. I’ve had these giants in front of me and I must admit, they are quite impressive.
However, the Petronas and Kuala Lumpur are only a small part of all the incredible places to visit in Malaysia. The country doesn’t only have incredible nature, but also incredible cultural diversity. The official religion of Malaysia is Islam. However, many Chinese and Indians live in Malaysia which creates this great contrast of people, architecture, religion and customs.

PLACES TO VISIT IN MALAYSIA
Tips for every destination
Some of the best cities to visit in Malaysia are Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Melaka. If you are interested in visiting nature, I recommend Cameron Highlands. If you are looking beautiful beaches, the main destinations in Malaysia are Langkawi Island and the Perhentian Islands.
Below you can find my published blog posts about the different areas of Malaysia.
Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia and the most visited city in the country. The two main attractions in Kuala Lumpur are the Petronas Towers and the in Batu Caves, a very unique place to go see. I also recommend visiting the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, Kuala Lumpur Tower, Thean Hou Temple and eating in Alor Street.
Melaka (also known as Malacca) is an interesting and attractive town located in the southern part of Malaysia. As a result of British, Dutch and Portuguese colonization, Melaka has a very varied and striking architecture.
I recommend walking along the river that runs through the city, visiting the Red Square (Dutch Square) and visiting the ruins of St Paul’s Church, the oldest church in Southeast Asia. Also do not forget to watch the sunset from Malacca Straits Mosque.
On the island of Penang, you’ll be able to visit one of the best paces to visit in Malaysia: George Town. This city stands out for its attractive street art and its delicious cuisine. Walking the streets of the center is quite an experience. I also recommend climbing Penang Hill, visiting the Kek Lok Si Temple and going to some of the best beaches on the island.
