Malaysia

 

Malaysia is one of the most enjoyable and easy country to visit in Southeast Asia. Several decades of sustained economic growth and political stability have made this nation one of the most prosperous and richest in the region. While it is true that political power (Malay) and economic influence (Chinese) have traditionally separated along ethnic lines, Malaysia has defended a pluralist culture based on a vibrant fusion of cultures and traditions of Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous people. Most visitors stay in the Malaysian peninsula, where the bustle of Kuala Lumpur hit is offset by the quiet colonial Cameron Highlands Hill station or the hedonistic torpor of Langkawi. Few visitors come to Sarawak or Sabah, on the island of East Malaysia, which have a spectacular wildlife, longhouses and the awe-inspiring Mount Kinabalu.
