Malaysia and diversity are almost synonymous. Inhabitants are a blend of Muslims, Taoists, Buddhists, Indusits, Peranakans and Eurasians as well as other religions and people. In its long history it managed to cultural assimilate them all and have one single ethnic identity.

The country fell in the hands of the Portuguese, the Dutch, the Brits and the Japanese. Diversity is also a key word for Malaysian regions and towns where the colonial legacy is coupled with contemporary growth. Kuala Lumbur may be chaotic with its twists and turns and small alleys, incredible bottlenecks, irregularly built constructions, stores and open-air food stands are so typically Asian.
Then, there are places such as Georgetown, Melaka and Kuching where the past comes alive and at times visitors may think that they are lost in the hallways of a folk or cultural museum. And far from urban centers there are tropical forests and mountain ranges, beaches and cute islands, crystal clear waters, coral reefs along with peculiar flora and fauna.
What is impressive is that these places are not swarmed with tourists yet. Communication and infrastructure are good, tour agencies are reasonably updated, accommodation and airports arte possibly amongst the best in SE Asia. And most Malaysians speak English.
