1. Petronas Twin Tower
So, you came to Malaysia, and you definitely don’t wanna miss out the Twin Towers on your itinerary. You can ask someone "have you been to Petronas Twin Tower?" instead of "have you been to Malaysia?" Do you get what I mean? Come here, take a couple selfies (or wefies), sit and enjoy the beautiful architectures that the twin towers could offer.
Char Koay Teow
As a multiracial and multicultural country, no doubt there will be all sorts of different delicacies one could find in Malaysia. From road stalls to high-end restaurants, sweet to spicy, you will just want to eat till you drop at this foodie heaven!
Food to try out for:
Nasi Lemak, Nasi Briyani, Char Koay Teow, Penang Prawn Mee, Asam Laksa, Banana Leaf, Mee Rebus, Roti Tisu, Rojak, Nyonya Kuih, Cendol
Last but not least, DURIAN!
Weather is probably the top factor that foreigners choose Malaysia, especially those who plan to escape the winter in their home country. With summer all year long, despite occasional monsoon season and rainy days, Malaysia (and maybe some other neighboring countries) might be one of the best places to go sunbathing or just relax your mind.
So, which are the best?
4. The Highlands
Thinking of escaping from the humid hot weather on ground lands? Then, you should take a turn or two at a few famous highlands in Malaysia which are Genting Highlands, Cameron Highlands, Bukit Tinggi.

5. Tourists hot spots
A Famosa - the oldest surviving European architectural remains in South East Asia
Interesting stuffs always attract tourists. Just like anywhere in the world, Malaysia too have some very interesting spots for foreign travelers.
Penang mural – Approximately 6 months ago, locals kept posting pictures of these classic paintings on the walls and finally its popularity boomed after they were filmed in the Hong Kong drama “Outbound Love”.
Malacca – A place for historians who love ancient relics and architectures that were left by the Portugese.
Sekinchan – Famous for its paddy fields and beach.
6. Shopping Malls
Bukit Bintang Shopping District
Unlike Seoul or Tokyo where there are many sightseeing spots one could find around the city. However in Malaysia, you won’t be able to find many interesting places but you can definitely find shopping malls easily all over especially in the Klang Valley area.
