Map of Malaysia
Few places can match the cultural diversity of Malaysia, a region of Chinese temples and longhouses, where Indian festivals rub shoulders with traditional Malay arts. Whether you fancy relaxing by tea plantations and jungle trails in the Cameron Highlands, shopping in Kuala Lumpur, or soaking up the history in Georgetown, Penang, use our map of Malaysia to start planning your trip.
This marvellously varied country offers plenty to explore. Adventurers can spot exotic wildlife on river cruises through Sungai Kinabatangan, trek through the rainforest of Taman Negara, or even tackle Mount Kinabalu. Foodies can tuck into spicy chilli crab at Singapore’s hawker centres, or snack on delicious street-food amid the hustle and bustle of capital city, Kuala Lumpur. Meanwhile beach bums should head to the east coast islands, for white-sand beaches, clear waters, and superb snorkelling and diving.Find out more about Malaysiachevron_right
