Malaysia – A Microcosm of Asia


Thursday, May 1, 2014

Malaysia’s tagline reads ‘Truly Asia’. When you travel to Malaysia, you will know why. It is truly a microcosm of the continent of Asia. It is like two separate countries integrated into one. It is a multicultural diversity. While the peninsula showcases Malay, Indian and Chinese influences, the Borneo half of the nation posts dense wild jungles, granite peaks and remote tribal livelihood.

Most part of the country is shrouded in thick foliages of the jungles that cover its peninsula region, with a thinly scattered populace in its northern frontiers. But this little populace is enough to enchant you. You will be riveted and enticed by the sheer diversity existing in this Asian holidays nation.
