Luxury Malaysia Holidays

With a blend of Malay, Chinese and Indian, indigenous cultures and customs, plus the mix of 21st century Western industrialism and unadulterated nature at its best, Malaysia is a fascinating place to experience. Luxury Malaysia holidays are glorious as the country is relatively easy to travel to and tour around. In the affluent capital city of Kuala Lumpur, skyscrapers nestle alongside remnants of traditional Malay villages. In smaller areas such as Terengganu, visitors will find a more typical mix of colonial architecture, amazing temples and mosques and sunny beaches.

The Cameron Highlands, in the centre of the peninsula, provide a rural setting with a series of hill stations at high altitudes and form the centre of Malaysia’s tea industry. It offers a great escape from the heat of the cities. The central virgin rainforest of Langkawi has a variety of wildlife, such as monkey, hornbill and flying fox, while the underwater world of Pangkor is not to be missed.

Malaysia is one of the few countries where old and new sit comfortably side by side, providing an eclectic mixture of sights, cultures and atmospheres. The new can evidently be seen in its array of luxury hotels and accommodation.
