About malaysia

Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country consisting of 13 states and three federal territories. It acquires a total landmass of 330,803 Sq Km which is separated by the South China Sea into two similarly sized regions - the Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo. While the Peninsula flaunts bustling cities, tea plantations and beautiful colonial architecture, Malaysian Borneo comprises wild jungles, remote tribes, and granite peaks. The country presents a perfect balance of modern amenities and natural habitats.

The capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur boasts a shimmering skyline, which is dominated by the world's tallest twin towers - Petronas Towers. It is also the tourist hub of the country with magnificent attractions like Aquaria KLCC, Merdeka Square, Batu Caves, Istana Budaya, Thean Hou Temple and a dozen museums, parks and shopping centres.

Providing a striking contrast to it are the traditional longhouse villages and pristine rainforests in the state of Sarawak. You can spot orangutans, crocodiles, proboscis monkeys, and the world’s largest flower - the Rafflesia here. Adventure seekers can take a 'flying coffin' riverboat up the Batang Rejang river, or to the fascinating Bat Caves and extraordinary rock formations of Gunung Mulu National Park. The state of Sabah also lure tourists with its turquoise-fringed islands having mesmerizing coral reefs.

In Malaysia, Islam is the state religion. However, the constitution guarantees freedom of religion to the residents of the country. Thus, you find Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and manu Chinese religions practiced in the country too. Malaysian, a standardised form of Malay is the official language of Malaysia whereas English remains an active second language.

The multi-ethnic and multicultural make-up of the society in Malaysia is evidently seen in the type of cuisine it offers. Chilli peppers, Belacan, Rempah, soy sauce and coconut are indispensable to Malaysian kitchens. Lemongrass is a common herb used in preparations whereas fried tofu is served with most dishes as a side accompaniment. Not to miss, the dishes of Congee, Nasi lemak and Roti Canai that are a must try here.
