Enjoy a River Safari
With so many things to do in Malaysia, it might be hard to decide which things to choose. If you enjoy wildlife at all, a river safari may be the ideal excursion for you. One of the most popular sites for such a safari is on the Kinabatangan River. Located in Sarawak, this long river provides an opportunity to view elephants, monkeys, and a multitude of other native wildlife. It will definitely be a time to take your camera, unless you’re so caught up in the enjoyment that you forget to snap a photo.
Sample the Cuisine
No one should visit Malaysia without sampling a wide variety of the awesome food items they have available. For a feast of different selections, you can visit Jalan Alor, which is located in Kuala Lumpur. They have hawker stalls where you can dine on different foods from a variety of cuisines. No one walks away still hungry. In fact, it’s a good idea to allow time for more than one trip to Jalan Alor while you’re in Malaysia, because you’ll have the pleasure of trying foods that probably won’t be available when you return home. It’s also a great way to learn about the culture, by experiencing the local cuisine.
The beautiful and exotic Malaysia has so much to offer to the traveler that you’ll find yourself longing to go often. With opportunities to base-jump off tall buildings, observe the local wildlife, enjoy an all-inclusive theme park, or enjoy a variety of new foods, you’ll be hard-pressed to run out of things to do. Not to forget, the background of Malaysia is one of stunning natural beauty. That makes everything even more pleasant. Next time you plan a trip to Asia, you’ll definitely want to schedule some time to enjoy the amazing Malaysia. It can definitely change your life.
