Malaysia Travel. Collected Malaysia Travel Blogs showcasing destinations in Malaysia, places of interest, fun attractions, historical, cultural, and wildlife-related Malaysia travel ideas.

Kuala Lumpur is a bit of a favourite of ours, along with Kuching in Sarawak. Kuala Lumpur is a massive travel hub in Southeast Asia, being the base for Air Asia. It seems that every trip starts for us in KL. A recent discovery is Ipoh Malaysia, we enjoyed that city a lot. We're not huge fans of beaches in Malaysia, we prefer cultural and historical destinations, but there are plenty. There are also scuba diving and snorkelling possibilities.

Malaysian food is interesting. You'll find plenty of Indian and Chinese food in Malaysia as well as Malaysia's blended cuisine. Malaysia is an awesome place to get your Indian food fix!

We've also been to quite a few theme parks and water parks in Malaysia. We particularly enjoyed Legoland Malaysia, near the Singapore border, and The Lost World of Tambun water park near Ipoh.

Kawan Kawan Guest House Malacca (Melaka) Review

Malacca doesn’t seem to be much of a backpacker town, most of the tourists we see are local and/or considerably richer than us, which isn’t hard. Maybe all the backpackers are in other districts rather than the Old Town. Finding cheap accommodation (for a family of 4 in particular) in Malacca has been tricky. We …
