With beaches, bustling cities and dense rainforests, Malaysia is one of the most diverse countries in the Asian continent. The country's diversity isn't restricted to its geography however, Malaysia is also home for people from a range of religions and ethnic backgrounds making it a fascinating cultural travel destination.
The capital city of Kuala Lumpur is a great introduction to Malaysia. One of the best things to do here is to visit the various street food markets and night markets that are so well loved by the locals. Chow Kit market is a much adored favorite and is a popular spot for sourcing fresh local ingredients and vegetables, as well as street food delicacies such as Roti Canai (flatbread) or Laksa (noodle soups).
Similarly fascinating is the more high end Plaza Mont Kiara market where local designers display their handcrafted, one-of-a-kind designs.
One thing not to miss while in Kuala Lumpur is the chance to visit the iconic Petronas Towers. Though the inside of the buildings consist mostly of offices or unoccupied spaces, there are some stores and restaurants on the first floor and of course, this is a great photo opportunity! Further afield in Malaysia, don't miss spiritual Penang. Often referred to as being the “Pearl of the Orient”, Penang is adored by locals and tourists alike, especially for its miles and miles of undisturbed sandy white beaches and its rich local food culture.
For a little rest and relaxation, be sure to venture over to Batu Ferringhi or Tanjung Bungah -- both are seaside beach resorts where life moves a little slower and one can enjoy a glass of Malaysian Kopitiam as the sunsets over the horizon. These two locations are referred to time and again as being among the best beaches in Penang.
The spring months are the best time to visit Malaysia. During this period, the temperatures are hot but not too humid and travelers can avoid the wrath of the monsoon season that falls in late summer/ early fall.
