The best of Malaysia

Expatriate Lifestyle - - Editor’s Note -

The Best Of Malaysia Awards re­sults are here! For weeks we scoured the coun­try in search of the best bou­tique ho­tel, fam­ily stay, shopping ex­pe­ri­ence and much more. We put it to you to vote and while some of the re­sults were ex­pected, there were a few sur­prises.

Malaysia is one of those coun­tries that ac­tu­ally of­fers some­thing for ev­ery vis­i­tor, and that’s not just guide­book spiel. Ev­ery­thing from an­cient trop­i­cal jun­gles and pri­vate is­lands with gor­geous re­sorts to UNESCO Her­itage sites and ex­cel­lent din­ing op­tions are avail­able here, all at pretty rea­son­able prices (es­pe­cially with the ex­change rates now). Have a look at our win­ners and plan your next week­end break and din­ner treat.

As al­ways, we have a cracker of a food fea­ture as our as­so­ciate edi­tor Karin went on a whirl­wind tour of the best high teas in the city. Many scones and cakes later, she came up with a de­fin­i­tive list of where to go f or the best se­lec­tion of dainty pastr ies and all the little nib­bles that make this a pop­u­lar week­end blowout this month.

We have a car­pet ex­per t of­fer­ing ad­vice on all the diff er­ent types of beau­ti­ful floor cov­er­ings you can have to en­hance your liv­ing space, as well as how to take care of them. We’re not talk­ing about just any old car­pets ei­ther, but stun­ning hand­crafted pieces from Iran, Afghanistan and Pak­istan. Mean­while, per­form­ing arts is the fo­cus of our ed­u­ca­tion fea­ture so check out which schools of­fer the best pro­grammes for your Broad­way star in the making.

As al­ways, feel free to get in touch via email ( edi­tor@ex­pa­tri­ate-life­ or through Face­book ( fb. com/ ex­pa­tri­atelifestyle), and fol­low us on Twit­ter and In­sta­gram (@el­malaysia). We’re al­ways open to sug­ges­tions (good ones only) and would like to hear from you.
