Malaysia Travel Guide
Malaysia is a mosaic of cultures and flavors, combining the best of China, India, and Southeast Asia with smattering of old colonial legacy. Capital city Kuala Lumpur is thoroughly forward-looking, with its gleaming Petronas Towers and immaculate rail transport that's surprisingly not crowded. Its compact size—though giant compared to neighboring Singapore—means you can cycle between Penang's 19th century shop houses in the morning and wander past hawker stalls in KL by night. Eating is a national hobby here; hopefully you'll be contentedly patting your expanding stomach after just a day or two.
