Southeast Asia - Malaysia (Chapter)
This is the Malaysia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Southeast Asia on a Shoestring guidebook.
Malaysia is two countries in one: the multicultural peninsula with its Malay, Chinese and Indian influences and Malaysian Borneo, host to a wild jungle of orang-utans, granite peaks and remote tribes. The beauty of Malaysia lies in the fusion of it all.
- waking up, swimming, lying on the beach, napping, snorkelling, eating, wandering and snoozing on Pulau Perhentian
- hoofing it over pitcher plants and moonscapes for the sunrise atop the looming granite spire of Mt Kinabalu
- hopping from one perfect beach village to the next, diving reefs and wrecks, and spotting monkeys in the jungle on Pulau Tioman
- restaurants & accommodation
