OK, so you know you want to travel, but you don't know where to go. With so many amazing and exotic places in the world, it can be hard to pick just one place when they all offer something so unique. Truly, how does one decide? Well, what if there was a place so spectacular and diverse that you could feel as if you're in several countries all at one time? How about a destination that accommodates everything from outdoor adventures in rainforests and beaches to modern shopping districts and colonial buildings? Or one that has a fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European cultures?
Don't worry - such a place exists. Malaysia is the ultimate destination for travellers who just can't decide on one place. Read on to learn about some of Malaysia's perfect attractions for indecisive vacationers.
Petronas Twin Towers
The Petronas Twin Towers stand above Kuala Lumpur at an amazing 451.9 metres making them the tallest twin structures in the world. They also boast the highest two-storey bridge, as the towers are connected by the sky-bridge which is open to visitors for the best view in Malaysia. This attraction will surely wow any lover of modern architecture.
For another tall adventure, the family should hike on over to UNESCO World Heritage Site Kinabalu Park. Everyone might not be able to make it to the summit of Mount Kinabalu - it's 4,095 metres high - but the whole family can partake in fun activities like mountain biking or animal watching. And, if the family needs a break, also nearby is the Poring Hot Springs, perfect for lunch or a quick dip.
LEGOLAND and Hello Kitty Town
Now a little something for the kids - check out LEGOLAND and Hello Kitty Town for everything from zippy thrill rides to live performances by the cast of Hello Kitty. This amusement park also includes interactive displays and, of course, block building so it's easy for the whole family to get involved in the fun.
BBKLCC, Kuala Lumpur
Once labelled as the fourth best shopping city in the world, Kuala Lumpur has everything for shopaholics. You'll find items from local goods to popular international brands. With year-round sales going on, visitors will never have to shop out of season.
It should also be mentioned that Malaysia has a flavour for all taste buds. Picky eaters will be pleased to find many Western-styled foods available, whereas more explorative palates can sample Nonya fare, the mix of Chinese-Malay foods.
For those who love to travel, but don't know where to go, Malaysia seems like the obvious answer. See you there!
