Malaysia – Melting Pot of Multi Ethnic Cultures
Malaysia with its spectacular beaches, modern cities with skyscrapers, exotic wildlife, steep mountains, sleepy tribal villages and great food attracts millions to its fold.
Malaysia is a country located in South east Asia. Malaysia is said to be two countries in one cleaved in half by the South China Sea. One part is located on a peninsula in Asian mainland and other part is situated on the northern third of the island of Borneo. The peninsular Malaysia or West Malaysia is home to bulk of population of Malaysia and its cities. It also more developed. Within peninsular Malaysia, the west coast is more developed and urbanized and is separated from more rural east coast by a mountain range namely the Titiwangsa. While the peninsula homes a multicultural mix of Malay, Chinese and Indian flavors, Borneo hosts a wild jungle of orang- utans, granite peaks and remote tribes.
Borneo is loved by nature lovers. It is comparatively unpolluted and without too much of development. It is the tremendous scope for wildlife destinations that makes Borneo or East Malaysia attractive. The two states of Sabah and Sarawak are in East Malaysia. They are noted for their pristine beaches, the national parks and hills and mountains. Muly caves, Mount Kinabalu and native longhouses are the attractions of Borneo.
Standing at a height of four thousand and ninety five Mount Kinabalu is the highest mountain in Malaysia. In its shadows is Kinabalu National Park which is declared a UNESCO world heritage site for its extreme bio-diversity. The mountain is very popular with tourists as the climb is very scenic and it can be achieved without any special skills in mountaineering. One start out in lush green forests and as you moves on vegetation gets sparse and at the end there is only granite. It is an attractive part of tour package to Malaysia.
Another attraction of Malaysia Tours is its twenty eight national parks which let you savor the mega diverse fauna of Malaysia. Malaysia homes a high number of species and exhibits high levels of endemism. It is estimated to contain twenty percent of animal species of the world and the mammal species number to about two hundred and ten. Diverse forests of mountains of Borneo exhibit high level of endemism because species are isolated from each other by lowland forests. There are endemic bird species in the mountains of peninsular Malaysia and also in Malaysian Borneo. Apart from land, some of waters of Malaysia are also bio-diversity hotspots.
The city of Kuala Lumpur is undoubtedly an inevitable part of Malaysia Holiday Packages. Kuala Lumpur is highly modern city with bustling streets, skyscrapers and cosmopolitan air although the past of the city is still present in the evocative British colonial buildings of Dataran Merdeka and midnight lamps of the Petaling Street night market. Petronas Towers is the important landmark of Kuala Lumpur. Standing at a height of one thousand four hundred fifty three feet, it is the tallest twin structure of the world. Central Market is now an important landmark of Malaysian culture and heritage. Originally a wet market, it is classified as a Heritage site by the Malaysian Heritage Society. It is in the heart of the city and strategically located. As a tribute to its multi racial culture which exists in peace and perfect harmony, Central Market has created a corner to display multi ethnicity and earmarked the stalls based on features of each race.
