Why Malaysia Is Becoming A Hugely Popular Tourist Destination

When planning a trip for your entire family, you’ll first need to find a good starting point. It is often best to first identify your destination of choice. There are plenty of excellent locations out there, but few can compare with Malaysia. During the course of several years, this location has managed to establish itself as one of the leading tourist hot spots on the planet. What makes Malaysia such a good tourist destination for a family or a single traveler? You’ll find out in the comprehensive guide provided below.

The Architecture Of Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia isn’t known as a very modern city, but this is simply a misconception. Believe it or not, there are many areas in the country that are actually very modern. When visiting a few specific cities, you’ll find Wi-Fi hotspots and many other high-tech amenities. If you visit the City of Kuala Lumpur, you’ll find yourself amazed by the amazing, modern architecture of the city. In fact, the city is home to several contemporary skyscrapers. If you want to see the most beautiful skylines in Asia, you owe it to yourself to make a stop in Kuala Lumpur. The Petronas Twin Towers will leave you mesmerized.


A lot of Asian countries have their very own Chinatowns, but nobody does it quite like Malaysia. This is a country that has been long influenced by the Chinese way of life. When visiting the Chinatowns in Malaysia, you’ll want to visit the Kuan Yin Teng Temple, which is more than 200 years old! You should also take the time to enjoy the street fare and local restaurants. They’ll give you a rare glimpse into modern Chinese culture, without needing to visit China. So, you can virtually visit two countries in one by traveling to Malaysia’s amazing Chinatown.

Hiking For Thrill Seekers

Are you an adrenaline junkie? If so, you’ll most definitely want to consider visiting Malaysia for the mountains. This country might not be considered a hiking hotspot, but it has a handful of amazing hiking spots that you’ll definitely want to check out. For the best time, you need to visit Mount Kinabalu, which is located in the state of Sabah. This mountain contains miles of hiking trails, which pass through many different vegetation zones. If you want to reach the summit, you’ll probably need to spend more than one day on the mountain. Nevertheless, it’ll prove to be well worth your time. The views from the top are simply amazing.

Go Diving

f you sign up for one of the Malaysia tour packages, there is a pretty good chance that you’re going to be invited to dive. This just happens to be one of the most common reasons that so many foreigners travel to Malaysia. The country is home to many amazing diving spots with the Sipidan being the most notable. It is located right off of the tip of the Malaysian Borneo. The waters are protected and only a specific number of individuals will be able to dive each day. So, you might have to wait in line. Still, the wait will be worth it in the long run.

While diving here, you will be able to see many wildlife, including barracudas, parrotfish, turtles and even sharks. Good alternatives include Tioman and Redang.

An Abundance Of Beaches

Beaches are truly a must for any excellent destination. If you want to keep your entire family satisfied, you just need to take them to the beach for the day. This is why Malaysia is an absolute must for traveling families. The mainland is home to many beaches, but you may want to check out the nearby islands. Langkawi is a must for tourists looking for extreme comfort and relaxation. The Redang island is also a good option.

Visiting The Caves

Finally, you should know that Malaysia is home to many amazing caves. The country contains the Gunung Mulu National Park. This national park dates back more than three thousand years. Despite being equally amazing in many areas, it is likely best known for its stunning caverns. There are guided tours and it is best to sign up for one to ensure you do not get lost along the way. Be sure to check out the Turtle Cave or the Wind Caves. You will not end up disappointed.
