Rain forest trekking.
With rain forests that rival even the Amazon itself, Malaysia is home to some of the most ancient rainforests out there. And you have the ability to trail them to your hearts’ content!
And if you’re looking for some amazing ones to start your journey with, then how about checking the island of Borneo, which has Sabah and Sarawak, which are some of the more popular rain forests to trek in the nation as well.
But you can choose to trek certain unnamed rainforests yourself, as the country makes sure to preserve its natural habitat carefully. Just make sure you do it during the day and with a guide or two to help.
Since the country is just overflowing with culture from other countries, festivals are a seasonal occurrence. And trust me, with every season, comes a new festival.
In Malaysia, thanks to the clashing of different cultures and religions, comes a festival for each season. Meaning during Ramadan, you can enjoy delicacies from the Muslim Malay Market. And when Chinese New Year comes rolling in, you can also collect ang pau packets and toss some yee sang salad in order to participate in the tradition.
So whatever season you may come over, there will always be a festival waiting just for you!
Malaysia is a country filled with cultural diversity, lush natural lands, and never-ending festivals for all to enjoy. It’s the country where you get to enjoy a little bit of everything, from everyone across the globe.
