A trip to Malaysia will provide an experience like no other; its bustling cities full to the brim with life, and natural surroundings hosting an abundance of wildlife
Separated by the South China Sea, Malaysia could easily be mistaken for two countries in one. One half boasts bustling cities, classic tea plantations and colonial architecture, while Malaysian Borneo will present you with a host of wild jungles, orangutans and some spectacular spots for diving.
The two regions alone are spectacular, but throughout the two there are even more treats to feast your eyes upon and you definitely won’t be disappointed by what is on offer. From the space-age architecture that surrounds you in Kuala Lumpur to the historic charms of Penang, business travel in Malaysia will provide you with a sensory overload of the best kind.
A uniting factor of the country’s various microcosms is without a doubt its food. Between the Indian curries, Chinese buffets, Malay food stalls and a little bit of Westernised food thrown in, going hungry will not be a problem on your travels.
Due to its investment in high technology industries and moderate wealth from oil, Malaysia has quickly become one of the richer nations in Southeast Asia. It provides a mixture of the modern world and a developing nation. For the majority of business travellers this will be a happy mix and enable an interesting and smooth trip.
With Malaysia’s proximity to the equator, it is a safe bet to pack expecting warm weather. On average the temperatures will range from 32°C in the daytime, to an ever so slightly cooler 26°C in the evenings. Like the majority of Southeast Asian countries, it is important to remember if you are travelling between November and February that your sunshine may well be interrupted by Malaysia’s impressive Monsoon season.
You will never find yourself bored in such an enticing and vibrant setting, even a busy schedule won’t hinder your ability to enjoy Malaysia’s splendours.
