MALAYSIA: ACCESSIBLE ADVENTURES
It is not difficult to see why Malaysia is considered by many to be one of the easiest travel destinations in Southeast Asia. Rich in history, equipped with world-class hotels and an excellent transport infrastructure, it is a breeze to journey around. Coastlines fringed with sandy beaches, majestic mountainous landscapes, and a culinary portfolio that encompasses some of the best hawker food in the region make the nation the ideal choice for intrepid travelers who seek adventure with ease.
Malaysia is open to vaccinated travelers without quarantine.
PENANGThe Old Penang Funicular
Penang is one of Malaysia's most charming destinations. Its colorful history as a hub of trade and cultural melting pot it can be easily digested in the city of George Town. The island's main city revels in a sensual melange of influences where watermarked Chinese shophouses sit cheek by jowl with shops selling Indian spices and grand mosques. The island is also home to some of Malaysia’s (and subsequently the world’s) most delicious hawker food. These open-air stalls are particularly strong on Chinese dishes, but seafood and the island’s legendarily creamy durian are other “must-tries”.
BORNEOOrangutan in Sarawak, Borneo
Shrouded in myth and mystery, the island of Borneo is famous for towering peaks, impenetrable jungle, and incredible biodiversity. All this and more can be found in Sabah, the northeastern portion of Malaysian Borneo. Land of the lush green landscapes, the craggy peaks of Mount Kinabalu, and iridescent blue ocean, Sabah is a place where wilderness fantasies come true. The state is famous for diving, while its jungles and the Kinabatangan River offer some of the best opportunities for orang-utan spotting in the region. Neighboring Sarawak is another portal to Borneo’s wilder side. The best of the state’s adventures includes the discovery of the spectacular bat caves and rock formations of Gunung Mulu National Park and a river ride up the Batang Rejang, a river that was once synonymous with remoteness and enigmatic rival tribes should not be missed.
PENINSULAR MALAYSIATea Plantations at Cameron Highlands
Occupying the southern section of the Malay Peninsula, adjacent to Singapore, peninsular Malaysia packs a lot into its relatively small dimensions. Here you'll find enticing cities such as Kuala Lumpur — Malaysia's space-age capital — and Malacca, a cosmopolitan trading port with some of the region's best-preserved heritage architecture. It's a paradise for beach lovers too. Established superstars such as Pulau Langkawi, Pulau Tioman, and the Perhentian Islands continue to wow old and new fans alike. An emerging beach hotspot is the Desaru Coast in the southern state of Johor. In 2020, the One&Only Desaru Coast, the brand’s first property in Asia, debuted as a spectacular tropical sanctuary with a spa and golf course. Also newly opened is the Anantara Desaru Coast Resort and Villas, with lush gardens and lagoon swimming pools. An entirely different experience awaits in the Cameron Highlands. Where emerald tea plantations unfurl across the hill-station area and offer cool restorative temperatures, gorgeous scenery, and remnants of genteel colonial culture.
