Peninsula Malaysia is a true melting pot of cultures, with Chinese, Malay, Indian and European influences with its frenetic cities, street art, tea plantations and some of the world’s best street food. Historical influences loom large in the stately colonial architecture of Georgetown (Penang Island) and Melaka. Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia. Its modern skyline is dominated by the 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers, a pair of glass-and-steel-clad skyscrapers with Islamic motifs. The city is also home to British colonial-era landmarks such as the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station and the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. Malaysia one of Asia’s most attractive destinations.
