Malaysia is a fascinating mixture of the modern world and a developing nation. It is a country in Southeast Asia located partly on the Asian mainland and partly on the northern third of the island of Borneo. Malaysia shares a border with Thailand and is connected by a bridge to the island state of Singapore. Coastlines, beaches, and waterways are on the South China Sea and the Straits of Malacca.
Malaysia is a melting-pot society. Malays make up most of the population but there are also Chinese, Indian and Portuguese and other indigenous peoples who call Malaysia home.
Malaysia tourism is the third major source of income and Malaysia's islands are the 9th most visited areas in the world. In 2015 over 27 million tourists arrived in Malaysia to bask on white or gold but very sunny beaches. Malaysia is tropical and because of its proximity to the equator warm weather is a positive advantage. The tropical coastline features gorgeous and famous beaches of Malaysia. You can pick £5-a-night chalets, family resorts, affordable boutique hotels and luxury resorts.
Visit Langkawi’s tranquil beach and play on the fine white sand and visit the limestone outcrops by the water’s edge. Here you can stay at the lavish Four Seasons Resort or rent, for cheap, a holiday caravan (camping trailer).
One of the best hotels in Malaysia is the Lone Pine Resort, Btu Ferringhi, Penang. The first hotel to open in Malaysia (1948), the Lone Pine Resort is a choice destination in and of itself.
