Architectural Buildings · Shopping Malls · Parks
An unusual blend of a developing nation and the modern world, Malaysia ranks as one of the richest countries in Southeast Asia, its prosperity largely resting on thriving high-tech industries. Malaysia vacations remain a more affordable alternative to the expensive tourism in some neighboring countries. Take a trip to Malaysia to explore busy cities filled with colonial-era architecture, tranquil tea plantations supporting a large portion of the local population, and dozens of scattered islands happily evading the worst aspects of mass tourism. While there may be fewer visitors, there's no shortage of fine beaches, mangrove estuaries, and verdant rainforests filled with exotic wildlife.

Jewel of Kedah
Langkawi District, an archipelago of 99 islands off the coast of the mainland, supports tourism with spas, bars, and cable cars, but it also maintains protected areas rich in native wildlife and culture--so the cluster of islands offers escape and entertainment in equal measure. Trek across the protected mangrove forests to see the richness of plant and animal life that live there. Or learn of the legends of the islands on guided tours, which offer mystery and nature in abundance. Beaches and lagoons draw tourists for their dive and snorkeling experiences.
