Malaysia at a glance

Soak up the diverse culture of one of the most contrast-rich countries in Asia. Use our Malaysia travel guide to help decide where you want to go and what you want to see... Witness the sheer scale of Friday prayers at the oldest mosque in Kuala Lumpur, and then spend some time exploring the other religions popular in Malaysia, from the Khoo Kongsi Chinese Temple in George Town to the Hindu Sri Mahamariamman Temple in Kuala Lumpur, and from the Kek Lok Si Buddhist Temple in George Town to the Protestant Church in Malacca. Chill out on a soft sandy beach on the heavenly Perhenthian islands and, in Peninsular Malaysia, go full-on Indiana Jones and trek with a trusty guide through one of the world's oldest primeval forests, in search of the Rafflesia, the enormous pungent red flower that can weigh up to just under two stone.
Enjoy a cocktail in the sky bar, facing the Petrona towers, above the multicoloured neon lights of the supercharged city of Kuala Lumpur. And in Borneo, after several hours in a dugout canoe (pirogue) with paddles hitting the water the only sound, arrive at a traditional longhouse, to be welcomed by the Iban people of Sarawak, descendants of the headhunters.
