Malaysia is one of the most visited countries in Southeast Asia and attracts travelers from all over the world.
It’s not strange, with its comfortable weather, English-speaking population, cultural heritage, and diverse cuisine.
Here, you can find beautiful islands like Rendang, Langkawi, and Tioman. Cities like Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Malacca, and Penang get tens of millions of visits yearly.
