Malaysia is like two countries in one, cleaved in half by the South China Sea. While peninsula flaunts bustling cities, colonial architecture, misty tea plantations and chill-out islands, Malaysian Borneo hosts wild jungles of orangutans, granite peaks and remote tribes, along with some pretty spectacular diving. Throughout these two regions is an impressive variety of microcosms ranging from the space-age high-rises of Kuala Lumpur to the traditional longhouse villages of Sarawak.
If there was one thing that unites all its pockets of ethnicities, religions and landscapes, it’s food. Between the Chinese-Malay ‘Nonya’ fare, Indian curries, Chinese buﬀets, Malay food stalls and Dayak specialties, with some impressive Western-style food thrown in for good measure, travelers will never go hungry here.

Imagine a city, its skyline punctuated by minarets, Mughal-style domes and skyscrapers, its colourful, food-stall-lined streets shaded by a leafy canopy of banyan trees.
This is Kuala Lumpur (KL), Malaysia’s sultry capital packed with historic monuments, steel-clad skyscrapers, lush parks, mega-sized shopping malls, bustling street markets and trendy nightspots. Also an essential part of the vibrant mix are incense-wreathed, colourfully adorned mosques and temples of the country’s Malay, Chinese and Indian communities. A reverence for these ancient cultures is balanced with a drive to be plugged into the contemporary world, as evidenced by an exciting contemporary art and design scene and a buzzing digital economy.
Today's KLites are separated by barely a handful of generations from the tenacious Chinese and Malay tin prospectors who founded the city, carving it out of virgin jungle. By the time the British made it the capital of Peninsular Malaysia in the late 19th century, erecting the grand colonial buildings that continue to stand proud, KL had only been in existence for a couple of decades.
Since then, the city has been the scene of history-defining moments for Malaysia. Stadium Merdeka was where, in 1957, the country’s first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman punched his fist seven times in the air and declared independence. And the iconic Petronas Towers were officially the tallest buildings in the world when they opened in 1998.
Reach for the sky by all means, but also keep a close eye on what’s happening closer to the ground. To fully connect with locals, join them in two of their favourite pastimes: shopping and eating. Malaysian consumer culture achieves its zenith in KL, where you could spend all day browsing glitzy air-conditioned malls such as Pavilion KL and Mid Valley Megamall in search of bargains. Alternatively, explore Central Market for locally made souvenirs, then dive into the culinary melting pots of nearby Chinatown or Masjid India.
Take to the Streets
It won't take you long to realise, despite the heat, this is a city best explored on foot. Walk and you can catch all the action and save yourself the frustration of becoming entangled in one of KL's all-too-frequent traffic jams. To tackle this problem, a new mass rapid transit (MRT) system is under construction. Soaring property values are also causing characterful old buildings to be torn down and replaced with bland new towers. Such disruptions aside, parts of KL retain the laid-back ambience and jungle lushness of the kampung (village) it once was.
Introducing Genting Highlands
Though referred to as a hill station, Genting is a modern and very heavily developed resort 2000m above sea level. About 50km north of KL, it’s in stark contrast to the Old English style of other Malaysian upland resorts. There are no walks here, no quaint stone village, and in general little public space to stroll about and enjoy the mountain scenery. Genting’s raison d’être is Resort World Genting, a glitzy casino billed as the only one in Malaysia.
Big changes are set for 2016, though, when 20th Century Fox World opens with a 10,000 seat stadium and a theme park based around movies such as Ice Age, Life of Pi and A Night At the Museum. At the time of writing, you could get to Genting on a day package. This included a bus trip to the base of the hill where the 3.4km-long Genting Skyway whisked you up in an 11-minute ride above the dense rainforest. There’s no shortage of places to eat, including cheap fast-food outlets and noisy food courts, and if you want to stay overnight, the resort has a choice of six hotels (book online). Expect Genting to look like a giant construction zone throughout 2015 and 2016.
