    Kuala Lumpur

    Spend 2-3 days in KL.


    Penang is a must visit. Penang boasts an array of charming historic buildings and places of interest displaying both Eastern and Western influences. There are also idyllic beaches for sun-worshippers and picturesque hills for nature lovers. Not to be missed too is Penang’s superb food, from the famous nasi kandar and Penang Street chendul to English tea on Bukit Bendera and Chinese fare.


    Visit Langkawi for it's famous beaches.

    Pahang - Taman Negara (National Park)

    The 4,343 sq km National Park or Taman Negara is home to million year old tropical rainforests. Within the park boundary are picturesque jungle trails, giant trees, limestone caves, excellent fishing spots and exciting river trips. The 400-metre long and 25-metre high canopy walk is the longest in the world. Within the park is Gunung Tahan, the highest peak on Peninsular Malaysia at 2,187 metres. Camping grounds, resthouses, chalets and hostels are available here.

    I lived in Malaysia l and know the country well

    For the Beach try to go to the Island Puala Kapas

    Elephant riding is not common in Malaysia like in Thailand you might not get this chance

    To see a Elephant in Malaysia (Except in the zoo) it is very difficult

    For Nature go to Taman Negara NP one of the best in the world

    Canopy walks , jungle hideouts, night walks, exotic birds , some rare endangered mammals may be seen with a bit of luck

    Bumbung Kumban hide if lucky you might see a black panther, tapir or elephant at a waterhole below

    The MATIC in KL can put you with a tour operator who will take you to Taman Negara from KL and back

    Gentling Highlands and Gap are good for bird watching but some strenuous climbing may be necessary

    Malaysia’s rich cultural heritage is apparent. Besides this, Malaysia boasts of fine beaches with crystal clear waters, the world's oldest tropical rainforest, spectacular cave systems and the tallest twin towers in the world.

    Kuala Lumpur - One of my favorite destinations in South East Asia, Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia's crowning jewel.

    Melaka (also known as Mallaca) - My second favorite place in Malaysia, Melaka is around an hour and a half's drive from Kuala Lumpur.

    Penang - One of the most popular destinations in Malaysia for Thais and people traveling from Thailand is Penang, as it's so close.

    Cameron Highlands - Cameron Highlands is famous for the silk trader, Jim Thompson, who left his home in Thailand for a trip to Malaysia.

    Langkawi - Malaysia's beautiful 99 islands. The area known as Langkawi, is actually off the coast of Malaysia and is one of the most popular and best tourist destinations in south east Asia.
