Great Asian Heritage – Malaysia

Multicultural acceptance has made Malaysia a gastronomical heaven. Malaysia is a home to hundreds of colourful festivals. It's no doubt that we like & love celebrating and socialising. As a human being, Malaysians are very laid back, affectionate and friendly.

Geologically, Malaysia is as varied as its culture. There are two parts to the country, 11 states in the peninsula of Malaysia and two states on the northern part of Borneo. Calm hideaways are found in the highlands that roll down to warm, filthy beaches and rich humid mangroves. One of the Malaysia's key charisma is its extreme contrasts. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts, and five-star hotels sit several metres away from ancient reefs.
