A melting pot of cultures. A rich heritage and history spanning more than half a century. Urban neighbourhoods mingling with sprawling, pristine sceneries. A smorgasbord of flavours to suit every palate.
Malaysia is, without a doubt, a multi-ethnic paradise.
Aptly branded ‘Truly Asia’ by our national tourism board, Malaysia has long been a magnet drawing not only curious wanderlusters, aspiring scholars, and business sojourners from around the globe but also locals because even for Malaysians, there’s always something new to discover about their motherland.
Malaysians are the very foundation of what makes the country. Their unmistakable and indivisible spirit regardless of the political climate, bonding over sports and nasi lemak, cutting across barriers of language and sharing inside jokes that only Malaysians know how lah, and working towards a common goal of tolerance and harmony are deeply ingrained in our DNA.
