Malaysia's stunning natural wonders, and its place as a melting pot of Chinese, Indian and Malay cultures make it a truly unique destination. Throughout the length and breadth of this rich and diverse country, these influences are reflected in the landscape, the food, the architecture, the customs and the people.

Malaysia also houses lots of secrets. Did you know that Malaysia is home to the world's oldest tropical rainforest, Taman Negara, and South-East Asia's highest mountain, Mount Kinabalu? And that the country's dive site on the island of Sipadan ranks as one of the world's top dive walls and Sepilok is the largest orangutan sanctuary in the world?

Better known treasures include the beaches and historic towns. Malaysia's beaches are amongst the world's most celebrated, whilst historic Georgetown in Penang, has been declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site.

For those after paradise it can be found on the tropical, sun kissed islands of Pangkour Laut and Langkawi off the West coast. Or at the world class Datai on Langkawi, get up close and personal with the mystery of the jungle and fall asleep listening to its bewitching sounds.

Big, bold and bustling is Kuala Lumpur - more commonly known as KL - Malaysia's modern and fast paced capital. Home to the Petronas Towers, once the world's highest building, Kuala Lumpur assaults the senses. Explore the night markets, savour street food bursting with flavours and observe the easy mingling of Indian, Malay and Chinese ways of life. One thing you will become aware of - this is a city in a hurry.

A more leisurely pace can be found on the island of Penang. It is often touted as the 'must visit' destination in Malaysia. Its historic capital Georgetown will delight even the most jaded traveller. For those who love to eat, this is the place for you. Penang's street food is world renowned.

Alateraldiversion to the eastern state of Sabah can see you hiking up Mount Kinabalu to Low's Peak at 4,095 metres. The pain of getting there is worth it as you watch the sun rise and the clouds and mist clear. After the long trek down, rest those weary limbs with massages and poolside drinks at luxurious hotels in Sabah's capital, Kota Kinabalu. A short flight from Kota Kinabalu takes you to Sepilok. At the dedicated reserve, orphaned orangutans are rehabilitated for their return to nature.

For more wonders of the animal world escape to Sipadan. Located off the East Coast of Sabah this site is legendary even amongst the most hardened of dive aficionados. Relax in the most tranquil setting whilst having an adventure with hammerhead sharks and sea turtles.
