Lying just north of the equator, Malaysia comprises Peninsular Malaysia and the states of Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo. A blend of East and West, of different lifestyles, cuisines, architectural styles, peoples, religions, and attitudes, Malaysia is a fascinating and at times bewildering country. The dynamism of Malaysia's cities contrasts with the tranquility of the country's diverse landscapes. The adventurous visitor can ascend Southeast Asia's tallest building or the region's highest peak; taste the delights of the capital's cosmopolitan restaurants or sample Penang's famous hawker food; explore Asia's largest caves and trek through the world's newest shopping malls or oldest rainforests; relax in luxury hotels or sunbathe on perfect white beaches. This book presents the many faces and facets of Malaysia.
