Enchanting Malaysia

Front Cover
John Beaufoy Publishing, Oct 23, 2014 - Travel - 80 pages
Malaysia is a hugely diverse country and supreme holiday destination. Divided into Peninsular Malaysia and the island states of Sabah and Sarawak on Borneo, each offers a wealth of unique attractions. For travellers interested in history and culture, the capital city, Kuala Lumpur, as well as other major cities, such as Putrajaya, Melaka and George Town, are fascinating to explore. Eco-tourists have an amazing choice of destinations from the Taman Negara National Park on Peninsular Malaysia to Gunung Mulu National Park in Sarawak and the Kinabatangan River in Sabah. Visitors to these natural places will be able to see Orang-utans, the Malayan Tiger, the Western Tarsier, Proboscis Monkeys and many other primates. Birdwatching in Malaysia is particularly rewarding with 656 species recorded in Peninsular Malaysia and 669 on Borneo. For the adventurous, there are challenging mountains to climb, such as Mt Kinabalu in Sabah, some of the world's best diving around Sipadan.
