Malaysia – Things to do

Things to do in Malaysia

You’d be wrong to compare Malaysia to anywhere else in the world. With Chinese, Indian, Arabic, British and Persian influences, it really is unique. Kuala Lumpur is a mesmerising capital city where you can experience incredible views from the Menara and The Petronas Towers. The country has 28 national parks where you’ll encounter some weird and wonderful animal and plant life.

Orang-utan

Wild Orangutans

Discover how conservation efforts are preserving the wild orangutans in Borneo. Sightings are all but guaranteed if you take a tour round the Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, where orangutans are permitted to roam within the forest.

Langkawi Sky Bridge

Langkawi Cable Car

We highly recommend you take the SkyCab cable car up to Machinchang Mountain if you want to get a bird’s eye view over the bucolic hills of Langkawi. If you’ve never seen a flying fox or macaque monkey, consider hiking the spectacular Gunung Raya.
