Malaysia at a glance

Good to know
Malaysia's country shape is just as interesting as the landmarks and people inside of it. The land splits into two. In order to get from cities like Kuala Lumpur to Bau, you may find yourself needing a ferry or even a flight. Head to Gunung Mulu National Park to see spiky karsts sticking out of forestry. The nature in Malaysia is just as striking as the booming cities.
