Malaysia and Borneo Map

Malaysia lies just north of the equator surrounded by the South China Sea.  It is sandwiched between Thailand in the north and Singapore in the south.  It is a country in two halves, part occupying the Malay Peninsula and the other part the northern part of Borneo.  It’s known for its beautiful white sand beaches on some of its 900 scattered islands, lush rainforests that are home to some unique creatures, and a heady mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European cultural influences.

Kuala Lumpur

Nowhere more is this cultural melting pot apparent than in Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur.  KL (as it gets referred to) is home to a wonderful melange of colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such as Bukit Bintang (Malaysians love shopping), and achingly modern skyscrapers, such as the iconic, 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers.  The street food in KL is delicious and well worth sampling – get a guide to show you round for a few hours, but make sure you’re hungry.READ MORE
