A cultural fusion marrying the best of three cultures, Malaysia's native Malay, South Indian and Chinese influences combine like a delicious Penang soup. Blessed with modern cities, ample nature and the solid infrastructure to get you between the two, Malaysia is varied and stress-free. Hike through tea plantations to jungle waterfalls, stroll the white sand beaches of Langkawi or scuba dive off idyllic Tioman island. Spot jungle wildlife from treetop hides in Teman Negara National Park, digest Penang's open-air food stall markets or live it up in modern, vibrant KL. Think you've seen it all? There's still the 'other' Malaysia: the states of Sabah and Sarawak, separated by 1000km of sea, carved out of Borneo's enormous jungle expanse.
