Even if you’re a Malaysian, it’s really hard to start planning for a getaway in your own country.
While my friends are all geared up to conquer the world, I’m more inclined to travel smart to discover Malaysia.
For me, there is no greater diversity of culture that can be found elsewhere than in my country.
Whilst Malaysia is best known for its beaches, rainforests, it is her unique diversity of electric ethnicity of her people that makes Malaysia truly Malaysian.
Both the Peninsular (West Malaysia) and East Malaysia are separated from each other by the South China Sea.
You may meet the Malay, Chinese, Indian, Eurasians, and the Orang Asli in West Malaysia and think we are diverse. Or we all sound very different.
For me, I only found out how truly united we Malaysian are when I traveled to Sabah and Sarawak.
It is in Sabah that I met the friendliest mix of ethnic groups living happily together.
Malaysia is the only place that Malaysians feel most at home when they travel.

There are very few things that you have to plan and think hard about before making plans to travel.
If you’re visiting Malaysia for the first time, I assure you will fall in love with a multiracial country with cheap, and delicious

You could spend a day at the best dive sites and the next on a night out in the capital, Kuala Lumpur.
So if you’re planning the next couple getaway, a family vacation, or even a gap year backpacking trip, you will find your travels here enjoyable and memorable.
On this page, you’ll find a list of articles related to planning your trip. All you need to decide is how long your vacation is – whether it’s a 3D2N over the long weekend or even 2 or 3 weeks.

Is this possible? To fall in love with the way to live here?
Malaysia has many a healthy expatriate community who first came to Malaysia as a tourist or to work.
Many eventually, fell in love with life in Malaysia after backpacking around the country and visiting the beautiful islands on the East Coast.
The balmy tropical weather appeals to tourists who love the outdoor and nature as they could adapt to the lifestyle easily.
It is easy to get around in Malaysia where the people are friendlier and the local spicy food hard to resist.
