Take a bunch of Malays and a pinch of Indians, add a dash of Chinese influence and a smattering of world religions – mix them all together and you’ve got Malaysia.
Look up the definition of multicultural and you’ll find a picture of Malaysia. OK, you won’t, but you should. This country puts the mmmm in mmmmelting pot. Everyone from the Portuguese, the Dutch, the British and the Japanese have ruled Malaysia, or at least parts of it. Not to mention a sultan or two.
Then there were the traders who came from India and China, bringing with them spices and silks. The result is an awesome mix of people, cultures and food. It’d be easy just to eat your way through Malaysia.
There are dumplings, curries, seafood and noodles galore. But we also recommend a few culture activities between meals.
Scale (by elevator) the Menara Kuala Lumpur, go trekking the Cameron Highlands and explore the colourful markets of Penang.
What people say
his is a trip that is hard but also fantastic. You get to experience the culture up close and personal, as well as pushing yourself along the trail. Definitely worth it if you want to try something outside the box.

Discover Sabah, August 2016
Be prepared for the heat and humidity of the rainforest, freezing wind on the top of Mt. Kinabalu, and the awesome animal spotting (binoculars advised).

Discover Sabah, July 2016
We have just finished the Discover Sabah Tour in Borneo. It was fantastic. Our tour guide was excellent (Johmin) and our little group (3persons), transits (bus,plane, boat etc) and the activities (Mount Kinabalu, Kinabatangan River, Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre...) were all great! Thank you very much for the good and unforgettable time. Tim & Jenni
