Infinite Attractions for an Inspiring Holiday (holiday in Malaysia)
Malaysia is one of the fastest growing tourist attractions in Asia, especially due its adventure, food, and shopping spots. It offers some of the most exhilarating experiences that one can indulge in.
When it comes to shopping, the place you need to visit without fail is Kuala Lumpur’s Petaling Street, a shopper’s haven. The most popular shopping district transforms into the most happening place in the evening, with the hundred-plus stalls providing its customers with products at the cheapest prices you will find in the region. After a night out shopping, a stop at China town would be the most apt way to quest your craving for some good food. China town provides you with plenty of good food to choose from.
Malaysians are synonymous for their motto of ‘feed the stomach first, and then talk…” And you will find that strictly followed in the small hawker-style food outlets. The stalls are parked all along the street. It is quite an overwhelming experience for the first timers, who may have some difficulty on deciding where to eat.
Kuala Lumpur tourism is built around its diversity of attraction, and another tourist attraction in KL is the Petronas Twin Towers, which held the title ‘World’s tallest building’ from 1998 – 2004.
Malaysia is not just about sky scrapers and shopping, it has its own heritage sites as well. If you make your way to Ipoh you will see limestone hills, which are getting rare to find. Their beauty is so magnificent when you see them when the sunlight breaks over the valley.
Another site tourists don’t want to miss is the Batu Caves are situated 13 kilometers north of the capital city Kuala Lumpur. They are the sacred place for the Hindu’s in Malaysia, and comprises of 3 main caves, and a few small ones. The caves which were found in 1892 are very popular Hindu shrines outside India, and are dedicated to Lord Murugan. If you visit during Thaipusam (a festival in January), you will experience the unforgettable. There is an offering for the adventure seekers as well, with mountain climbing a hot activity in Malaysia.
In Borneo, deep in Sarawak’s Gunung Mulu National Park, lie the most spectacular caves on earth. This is known as Malaysia’s adventure capital, which is an attraction for jungle hikes, and its magnificent world heritage caves. There’s more to Malaysia in the form of the world’s highest via Feratta on Mount Kinabalu, the highest sandstone mountain in Sarawak called Mount Murud, Penan Tribe, and Malaysia’s legendary restaurant Pan Heong.
