Malaysia is separated by the South China Sea into two parts making it seem as though it is two countries instead of one. The peninsula has bustling cities, colonial style architecture, tea plantations and multiple islands and Malaysian Borneo boasts jungles with orangutans and remote tribes and fantastic diving opportunities. Malaysia has a population of over 30 million people and has much to explore and experience all of which is possible on a variety of tours that are available.
If you are a first timer to Malaysia, then you would want to explore the charm of Kuala Lumpur on a sightseeing tour that takes place in the morning or afternoon. On this tour you will be able to see Indo-Moorish architecture and other structures like the old and new King’s Palace and Merdeka Square. Other highlights that you will be able to view on the tour include the National Museum, National Mosque and the Royal Selangor Visitor Center. The tour takes about three hours and provides insight into the famous sights of Kuala Lumpur.
To understand Malaysia’s multicultural influences an afternoon tour to the Batu Caves is a must. This three hour tour takes you to the Batu Cave Hindu Temple that just like its name suggests is located inside a cave and is lined with different Hindu deities. Also visit Brickfields also known as Malaysia’s own Little India and see the batik designs and pewter arts that are famous in this area.
A half day tour in Penang will take you to the Kek Lok Si Temple and Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddha’s and also gives you the opportunity of taking a ride on the Penang Hill Railway. If you happen to be visiting on a clear day you will be able to experience views that extend all the way from Georgetown to mainland Malaysia. In all the tour takes about 4 hours.
