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.
