A brief introduction to Malaysia

Malaysia, separated by the South China Sea into two similarly sized regions, Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia, is a Southeast Asian country with diverse ethnic cultures. Its multicultural background makes it well worth visiting. In Malaysia, tourists may get the feeling that they have visited many different countries in one day of traveling.


Malaysian landscape


Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital, is an emerging international metropolis that has perfectly infused the country’s eastern and western parts into a harmonious whole. The culture here is diverse and unique.


Penang is a Malaysian state that is full of delicious food and charming wall paintings. Tourists visiting Penang are there either for its food or for its wall paintings. In Penang, tourists can look for the beautiful wall paintings hidden in the streets while enjoying the region's traditional snacks. 


The sunset in Sabah is one of the world’s top-10 most beautiful natural sights. The long beach turns a fiery red as the sun sets, and the dark silhouettes of the coconut trees stand still and beautiful against the backdrop of the flaming sky.


Malaysian cuisine

Malaysia is definitely a foodie haven. Its diverse ethnic cultures have mixed to create a charming pastiche of foods that includes Malaysian cuisine, Chinese cuisine, north and south Indian cuisine, peranakan cuisine, and more. The options are dizzyingly wonderful!


Roasted prawn with butterfly pea flowers and coconut rice is a creative traditional Malaysian cuisine. Lobster is roast with sambal sauce and paired with rice that is cooked with Malaysian butterfly pea flowers.


Char kway teow
(or “stir-fried rice cake strips”) is a traditional Chinese cuisine that is popular in southeast Asian countries including Malaysia and Singapore. The kway teow (“rice-cake strips”) of Char Kway Teow should be thin and slippery, the shrimps should be fresh, and the fire should not be too fierce. The dish is more tempting when it is cooked with Malaysian special soy sauce.


Satay is a Nanyang (Southeast Asia)-flavor kebab. It is one of the most traditional Malaysian cuisines. Marinated beef, lamb, and chicken skewers are roasted under moderate heat and then a thick layer of satay sauce is applied. Satay sauce is made of peanut butter, coconut sauce, baby shrimp, and more. The best way to eat a string of satay is to pair it with cucumbers, onions, and traditional Malaysian rice wrapped in coconut or banlan leaves.


Roti canai, or roti prata is a type of Indian-influenced food that can be easily found in Malaysia. The main ingredients of its dough are eggs, flour, and water. Ghee is usually added to improve the taste and to lubricate the dough after the dough is kneaded thoroughly and rolled flat. A roti prata chef will usually fold it many times to make a lot of layers, and then fry it in a pan. The Fried roti prata is fluffy and crispy on the outside.


Malaysian culture

Teh tarik ("pulled tea") is a hot milk tea beverage. Originally created in Malaysia, the drink is often referred to as the country's national drink. It is made from black tea and either condensed milk or evaporated milk. The mixture is poured back and forth repeatedly between two vessels from a height, giving it a thick frothy top.This process helps to thoroughly mix the tea with the condensed milk and give it a better flavor.


The Henna tattoo is an ancient body-decoration art form. The materials, known as Henna or Hina, are made from the leaves of a shrub called the Henna tree. Henna leaves are picked and ground into a very fine paste, which becomes an important natural drawing material.
