Five Malaysian Masterpieces

A country known for it’s natural resources, booming economy and refreshing beauty, Malaysia captivates the individuals that sets their feet onto the land. Past the natural beauty, it’s home to some wondrous cities, including the nations capital, Kuala Lumpur, home to the Petronas Twin Towers, the tallest twin buildings in the world. Nature enthusiasts will love to land too, as it’s home to 20 percent of the world’s animal species, carrying breeds that could only sustain life in it’s specific habitat. The following cities are some of the countries finest, spots ideal for a Malaysian vacation.

1. Kuala Lumpur
As the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur will amaze you with the shine that glows at night. That shine is partially produced by the Petronas Twin Towers. From 1998 to 2004, the towers were considered to be the tallest buildings in the world, however, presently, it is renowned to be the tallest twin buildings. Not only will you see the skyline, but you will have the privilege of seeing the natural beauty that is Kuala Lumpur. Sightseeing is the major part of Kuala Lumpur, with it’s traveled scope of Hindi caves and impressive aquariums. A highly suggested viewpoint is the Kuala Lumpur Tower, which features a revolving restaurant, giving the panoramic view of the city.

2. Melaka City
Rich with different cultures, history and religions, the Melaka City is surrounded by harmony of modernism and traditionalism. Consistent with different types of religious buildings, tourists often like to roam around the city. You can travel as freely as you wish, and observe the artistry of the public. We recommend visiting the Melaka Sultanate Palace. The wooden replica of the 15th century palace was constructed entirely without wood and contains over 1,350 artifacts, portraits and drawings of the Malayan heritage.

3. Kota Kinabalu
If you wish to overcome a challenge, hike a climber-friendly mountain, the highest mountain of Southeast Asia. Mount Kinabalu is a majestic trail of determination and willpower. However, if you wish to rest in luxury and peace, you can go to the islands to enjoy the underwater life or pamper yourself with the resorts down below the mountain. The preferred activity is island hopping, which is cost-efficient, visiting different islands and staying for a limited time in each one. Although all of this is available to you, one thing to be especially excited for here is the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, which hosts the Borneo Elephant Ride. With reasonable prices and family fun what more could you want?

4. Penang Island
For any foodies out there, the Wonderfood Museum offers a magnificent variety of food. But, be sure your search doesn’t end there and hit the streets to have a taste of the local’s cooking at their stands. Penang is wonderful when it comes to nature as well. Entopia, known to be a tropical sanctuary for mostly insects, was built to captivate those who favor the bold colors of the wild — a must-see location.

5. Langkawi
The nightlife escape you can only dream about, Langkawi offers you the amazing hospitality of Malayan courteousness. Langkawi combines the robust scenery of flame lamps and candles with the sounds of the waves, and enjoy the food mixed with delicious cocktails. If you want to do something for the day, you can see the strange and exotic wildlife throughout the ancient rainforest, and ride a cable car throughout tropical temperatures. The Langkawi Skycab is perfect with the viewing platforms, made to mesmerize your eyes.
