Malaysia is located in Southeast Asia and is known for its multicultural population. From impressive views to food, there is nothing missing here, but here are the top ten things to do in Malaysia.
Visit many temples
Malaysia is proud to be multicultural and with all different races and cultures such as Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Sikhism and so on. There are many temples and mosques! Architecture is not only gorgeous, but also a symbol of their religion.
Head to the Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur
Formerly known as the world’s tallest building until 2004, KLCC, built in 1998, is still the world’s oldest tallest building at 1,483 feet. You can enjoy great views of Kuala Lumpur, and at night it offers glistening city lights just by looking at the chills.
Petaling Street for cheap shopping
Shopping is always mandatory during the holidays! You can buy cheap knockouts, souvenirs and handicrafts at Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur. Petaling Street, also known as Chinatown, is always busy and full of locals and tourists looking for street food and bargains. However, remember that you need to be careful about pickpockets.
Discover the Pasari Sem, created by the locals for their unique arts and crafts
Pasar Seni is loosely translating the Art Market. As the name suggests, you can get local crafts and unique sculptures here. You can even see a lot of favorite and antique items on sale, so you should definitely check out all the corners, as it can be quite confusing there.
Visit the National Zoo
Pop at the National Zoo, where you can see exotic animals. There are many exhibits that show animals that have been either rescued or endangered. If you have children, they have the opportunity to join and interact with smaller animals at the pet zoo. Plus, there’s even a giant panda show that you need to check out.
Head to Rainy Taiping
Taiping is known among Malays as the best place to retire. Everything and everything there is quite cool and relaxed, so when you go on a day trip, it is nice to visit all the hotspots, such as lake gardens, museums and the zoo.
Food hunt in Penang
Penang is a food paradise for the locals, so it is safe to say that if you want to try delicious Malaysian food, go further to Penang. You have to take a ferry to get to the island.
Go back in time to Melaka
Melaka has a rich history, dominated by Portuguese, Dutch and British, which in turn offers them an amazing variety. Stroll through Jonker Street until late to enjoy local food and culture.
Swim in the crystal clear waters of Pulau Perhentianus
Have you ever seen seawater that is so clear that you can clearly see your feet? Well, Perhentian Island is known for its clean, unpolluted waters. Enjoy swimming with marine life and even go hiking to get the best experience from your visit.
Pose with wall art in Ipoh
Ipoh is a quaint city that can look like a city until you see it from morning to late evening. When Penang was a pioneer in street art, Ipoh has also grown up in street art and there are many you can pose with. Each mural comes with a plaque explaining the artist and its origins.
