The diversity of modern and colonial architectural style with the background of Titiwangsa mountains is exceptionally beautiful in Peninsular Malaysia. This time I mainly enjoyed exploring Kuala Lumpur. At the same time, I’ve loved the natural beauty of Cameron Highlands in East Coast Malaysia. I had no idea this country could have so much to offer. The following 7 must-read travel books to visit Malaysia and explore the best.
I must say, I’m highly impressed by the high-tech infrastructure of the capital city of Kuala Lumpur.
