The Southeast Asian country of Malaysia may easily be divided in half. Half of it corresponds to the peninsular geography, which drew various colonial exposures and led to the development of contemporary opulent regions that appear to surpass their origins.
The other half of Malaysia is representative of the actual Malaysian race, faith, and culture and has its pockets filled with the works of nature. Trying to get the best of both worlds might be a little perplexing. Here is our list of the Top Things to Do in Malaysia after spending hours contemplating each of its moods.
The PETRONAS Towers, also known as the PETRONAS Twin Towers because they are a pair, are situated in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur and are the tallest twin towers in the world.

Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park is a group of five islands that are located off the coast of Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, East Malaysia.

Some of the islands, like Sulug Island, are almost unexplored while others, like Gaya Island, are livelier and more populated. The park is reachable via ferry.
Enjoy the culture of Malacca, which is regarded to have the most intriguing architecture in all of Malaysia due to its past Portuguese colonial history and the presence of several red lacquer structures from that era, including Christ Church.

Located in the state of Kelantan on Malaysia's west coast, Kota Bharu offers a unique contrast to the country's east coast in terms of pace and atmosphere. However, many tourists pass it by, perhaps because it has a reputation for being a more conservative area than much of the rest of the country.
The Perhentian Islands' clear waters and beaches are its main draws, and scuba diving is a well-liked pastime here. Eat freshly caught fish that has been grilled over coconut husks at night on the beach.
From Teluk Burau's "oriental village," begin your trek to Mount Machingchang's breathtaking heights, where the Langkawi Sky Bridge is situated. Visitors may enjoy panoramic views of the island and, on a clear day, a clear glimpse of the Indonesian island of Sumatra during the fifteen-minute cable car ride.
The park offers several "lost world" rides and exploration excursions, as well as a selection of hotels and a sizeable spa with a wide choice of treatments for weary would-be archaeologists.
In Penang, Gurney Drive is a seaside walkway that provides views of many beaches, notably North Beach.

If you wish to escape the city, go to Tioman Island, which is in the state of Pahang. Visitors may go hiking from one side of the island to the other in a day and there are eight towns on the island, part of which is still covered in a beautiful rain forest.
