Malaysia is like it has in itself, two countries, both divided into half by the South China Sea. While the peninsula has the colonial architecture, bustling cities, tea plantations and chilled out islands, the Malaysian Borneo is host to granite mountains, remote tribes, Orangutans, and you can also go for some quality diving. Across these both regions it has a wide variety of microcosms from traditional longhouse villages on Sarawak to the high-rise of Kuala Lumpur. One thing that united all of the Malaysian landscapes, ethnicities, and religion is the food. With Chinese buffets to Indian curries, it has got so much western style impressive food to offer that it won’t let even a single tourist go hungry. A few places to keep in mind while designing your Malaysia Tour packages from Mumbai:
Cameron Highlands : This place is the largest hill station area of Malaysia. Eucalyptus freshens the air here, tea plantations and strawberry farms are so abundant that they can be seen as far as your sight can see. These highlands were mapped down in the year 1185 during the colonial period. Bungalows, golf courses and even gardens appeared in 1930s, making this place a refuge for the heat hating Brits. Temperature here never goes above the 30° C mark. Tourism is the main business here as it attracts a lot of tourists to come here to have strawberry along with sipping tea cups on weekends, so you must expect some competition when you come here.
Kinabalu National Park : This National Park is situated on the mountain Kinabalu, which is the highest mountain on the third largest island in the world. This is not just the scenery. It is so widely and evenly spread across the Sabah region that is in your sight no matter where you’re seeing. It is only when you gaze at it properly that you realize how beautiful this peak really is, shading amidst valleys and catching the passing by clouds, this is by far the biggest tourist attraction in this region. Also everything is expensive in here, with bottled water about 4 to 5 times the normal price. This place is also Malaysia’s first UNESCO world heritage site. For a fact, this mountain is still growing at a rate of 5 mm annually.
Pulau Perhentian : It has crystal clear waters, electric teal, fecund and thick jungles, and beaches with sand so white it might blind you. A night at these beaches is mandatory with the bonfire and water emitting it’s dark colors to bring out the velvety dark shade in the atmosphere. This place has two main islands, one is ‘Kecil’ which means small and is famous amongst the young crowd. The other is ‘Besar’ meaning large, which offers more relaxed ambience and higher standard accommodation options. You can just spend RM20 to transit quickly between the two islands. You can usually find beach parties here, which have not gotten the Thai-style yet. It is strongly advisable to bring in some extra handy cash, as these islands don’t have any bank or ATMs. Also the island stays shut during the monsoon months, but a very few hotels in Coral Bay keep thyself open for stronger traveller.
