Separated by the South China Sea East Malaysia and Peninsular Malaysia are a world apart. The two halves of the country are worlds apart when it comes to scenery, Peninsular Malaysia is made up of busy cities and tea plantations, colonial architecture and relaxed islands, while Malaysian Borneo boasts great granite peaks, unique diving spots, orangutan inhabited jungles and secluded tribes. Malaysia as a whole is an intriguing country made up of beautiful landscapes in each area; it’s made up of many different religions and ethnic groups, which probably explains why the food is out of this world. Expect Chinese-Malay delicacies, Indian curries and Malay food stalls. Malaysia is a shock of colour and sound, a treat to the senses which won’t soon be forgotten.
Kuala Lumpur is an endless skyline dotted by minarets, domes and enormous sky scrapers. Walking through the streets you’ll be greeted by colour and noise as the smells of the food-stalls draw you in under the leafy shade of banyan trees. Kuala Lumpur locals have two favourite pastimes, shopping and eating, Kuala Lumpur is the shopping capital of the country and days can be spent wandering through shops in air-conditioned malls. In the Central Market you’ll find handmade souvenirs and brick a brack, while Bangsar and Pubika are known for housing the works of independent designers and funky labels. The capital is rich with historic monuments, lively nightlife and flourishing parks. During your visit don’t pass up the opportunity to see a vibrant mosque or a temple of the Malay communities, a beautiful mix of old and new, Kuala Lumpur shines as the countries cultural capital.

Penang’s alluring charm and diverse cultures, religions and food attract visitors year in and year out.

Penang is a paradise, worlds away from day to day life in Ireland.
