A walk through the paradise of Asia; Malaysia
Take a step into paradise in the Asia Pacific, an island with cultural diversity and tropical beauty; take a step into Malaysia.
Located in the heart of the Asia Pacific region, Malaysia benefits from a strategic location and a tropical climate all year. It is well-known for its cultural diversity - Malay, Chinese, and Indian - and the unique ethnic communities of Sabah and Sarawak, with 13 states, three Federal Territories, and a population of more than 30 million people.
Malaysia's capital city, Kuala Lumpur, is a bustling metropolis with unique landmarks such as the KL Tower and the Petronas Twin Towers. It has everything from pristine beaches and breathtaking islands to a rich tapestry of cultures and well-preserved heritage treasures (the tallest twin towers in the world). Not only is the natural rainforest of KL Forest Eco Park located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, but the administrative capital of Putrajaya is rich with impressive architecture and bridges.
Malaysia’s other destinations such as Melaka, Penang, Langkawi, Sabah and Sarawak, each has its own charms.
The historic cities of Melaka and Georgetown are generously endowed with UNESCO World Heritage Sites, not to mention Malaysia’s first World Heritage Site of Kinabalu Park, as well as Gunung Mulu National Park.

Uncover your new pursuits at Langkawi - Southeast Asia’s first UNESCO Global Geopark, the tropical island paradise with incredible landscapes. At Kuching, tuck into its foods to experience and understand what makes Kuching a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.
Malaysia’s stunning islands and beaches provide the ideal sun, sea, and sand getaways. Some of these islands, particularly along the coasts of Terengganu and Sabah, are world-class dive sites with amazing underwater landscapes. Sipadan island is well-known as one of the world’s top diving destinations.
Malaysia's latest attractions include the newly-opened Genting SkyWorld, an outdoor theme park in the highlands, and the magnificent Merdeka 118 Tower in Kuala Lumpur, currently standing as the world’s second-tallest building.
As Malaysia has officially reopened its borders starting April 01, 2022, fully-vaccinated inbound travelers can enjoy quarantine-free travel to Malaysia and no longer need to undergo pre-departure and on-arrival COVID-19 tests, including children aged 17 and below. Travel insurance is also not a prerequisite for foreigners entering the country.
