Crystal clear water at Perhentian Island

Perhentian Dream

One of the most beautiful islands in Malaysia is Perhentian Island, which actually consists of a big island and a small island. Both islands offer fantastic scuba diving and snorkeling facilities. The islands are especially famous because of the laid-back atmosphere. Alongside the beaches you will find basic lodges, moderately luxurious resorts, cozy restaurants, dive centers and boat operators advertising their services ranging from water taxis to snorkeling trips.

Lake Kenyir

True Paradise: Lake Kenyir

Lake Kenyir is a beautiful lake located in the state of Terengganu in northeast Malaysia. It is the largest man-made lake in Southeast Asia. The lake borders the wildlife park Taman Negara to the west. In and around Lake Kenyir you will find hundreds of small islands, stunning waterfalls and amazing caves. Lucky travelers can spot wild animals, birds and insects like hornbills, monkeys, snakes, spiders and even wild elephants and tigers.

Mount Kinabalu Summit Trail

A 4095 meter tall mountain

Mount Kinabalu is the tallest mountain in Malaysia and the 20th tallest in the World. Mainly because of the biological diversity the mountain is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Climbing the mountain is not an easy feat for the untrained; though it will absolutely be one of the best experiences ever. Watching the sun rise in the early morning will definitely make you forget all the hardships you had to endure during the hike up.

Most popular National Park Taman Negara

Ultimate Jungle Experience

Taman Negara is one of the world's oldest primary rainforests. The national park stretches roughly across the center of Peninsular Malaysia and is easily accessible from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Over recent years the park developed into a popular ecotourism destination. Taman Negara is home to some very rare mammals but due to the sheer size of the park, close encounters with wildlife is not that common.

Tropical island of Langkawi

Tropical Gem Langkawi

The tropical island of Langkawi is one of the most popular destinations within Malaysia. Though the island is recognised as one of the most beautiful islands in the world; you will never feel you're visiting a crowded tourist overrun island. Visit Langkawi for wonderful jungle, fantastic sightseeing and beautiful beaches. There is an abundance of accommodation available for every type of traveler, ranging from basic B&B's to luxurious 5-star resorts.
