I love Malaysia!
I visited Malaysia for a short time in early 2016 (I visited Kuala Lumpur and Melaka, but I hope to visit Penang and Langkawi in the future!), and it has to be one of the best places I have been on my backpacking trip.
Find my 5 reasons why below.
The Malaysian population is divided by three main cultural groups. You have the Malay people, Chinese and Indian. Because of this there so much variety with the architecture, the food, and even the traditions. I visited Melaka whilst I was there, and that’s a cute little town with a lot of Portuguese influence. Whether you want to visit a temple, a museum or just take in the sights, you will never be disappointed or short of things to see.
Some of the reasons I love Kuala Lumpur!
Kuala Lumpur, or KL as it is otherwise known is the capital city of Malaysia and an amazing place to visit. Malaysia’s population is divided into three main nationalities; Malay, Chinese and Indian, and due to this there is a huge amount of culture. The city is obviously very built up and modern, but it has a lot of beautiful greenery and palm trees everywhere as well. It’s clean and very cheap for a backpacker, and the people are just so lovely. I actually stayed with a malaysian family for a bit of my time there and they were so amazingly lovely and helpful, meeting them has been a highlight of my trip.
Malaysia has a hot climate so a tip from me to be would to stay at an Airbnb with a rooftop pool, there are loads to choose from and you can get some great deals! There’s loads to do if you want to get out and explore the city, here are some of the things I did during my time there..
