A visit to Malaysia

One of the most developed countries in Asia is Malaysia. It is located in South-east Asia which is the region visited by many tourist. It consists of two unconnected parts and is bordered by Thailand, Singapore, Brunei and Indonesia. The capital of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur which is a modern city with its famous landmark the Petronas Towers. Besides its modern buildings, Kuala Lumpur also has some colonial buildings. Some of the other cities or towns to visit include the seat of the government Putrajaya, the historical town of Malacca or the cultural city of Georgetown. Besides its cities there is another highly appreciated side to Malaysia which are its white beaches with blue water. Some of the best beaches of Malaysia include Langkawi, Tioman, Penang and the Perhentian islands. Some of these places have been fully developed and resorts have sprung up everywhere. Other places such as the Perhentian Islands still give you that authentic feeling where you find many small bungalows along the coast line and if you take a water taxi you can visit a beach with few tourist on it. For some scenery there are several places where you can see jungle and agricultural land. The Taman Negara national park is home to some of the oldest rain forest on the planet. The Cameron highlands shows you expansive views of tea plantations and allows several opportunities to go walking. Because Malaysia is a modern country and English is spoken basically everywhere, getting around is straightforward. For a relaxing holiday this place offers a combination of comfort and a true Asia experience. Malaysia is also a great place to get some nice Asian food as it is home to many of the cultures in Asia.
