Malaysia summary

hornbillMalaysia appropriately celebrates its multiethnic character. It’s a lively melting pot of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European cultures. Georgetown and Malaka were particularly interesting in this respect, especially their food dishes. Both have recently been recognized as World Heritage Sites to reflect their history and uniqueness.

Tioman Island was a special treat. The Cameron Highlands were refreshingly cool and picturesque with the tea plantations.

    Oh, and the photos are great.
