Malaysia- Tailor made holidays by Eastravel

Wayang Kulit dancers, Malaysia

Malaysia is a wonderful, eclectic cocktail of cultures, nature, and history, spread across South East Asia. Peninsular Malaysia, bordering Thailand in the north and Singapore to the south, lies between the South China Sea and the Straits of Malacca. The East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, together with the island of Labuan, form part of the island of Borneo.

On the peninsular, a long tradition of Chinese and Indian immigration among the majority Malays has enriched the culture of Malaysia, its customs, cuisine. The British colonial heritage, the institutions of state, railways, and grand public buildings adds another layer. This fusion is deepened in Borneo by the added dimension

The British colonial heritage, the institutions of state, railways, and grand public buildings adds another layer. This fusion is deepened in Borneo by the added dimension of the aboriginal tribes, their traditional architecture, festivals, and unique cultural heritage.

This sense of ever shifting contrast defines Malaysia. 21st Century skylines provide a glittering backdrop to wonderfully preserved colonial grandeur, timeless attap hut dwellings. Cool hill stations hover above humid rain forest filled with birds, primates, plants, found nowhere else. Pristine white beaches, mangroves rich with life fringe crystal seas studded with islands rarely trodden.
