If you hear Malaysia, the first thing to cross your mind is Malaysian cuisine! Sushi, Singapore noodles, kung pao chicken, and dumplings bless our stomachs. Some could even rank it to be the best food in the world. There is typically everything for anyone including special requests due to allergic reactions.

The best thing about the food apart from the marvelous taste is the cost. I don’t think such flavors can be found at affordable prices as in Malaysia. If you feel like your account is about to break, you can even try the local delicacies from food hawkers where the taste and flavor are equally good.

You can’t also hear Malaysia without the mention of the stunning sceneries and landscapes. The Perhentian Island where the water is cool for swimming, partying and chilling. The amazing Cameron Highlands and Selangor, lush forest the wildlife of East Malaysian Borneo.
