Those who have got acquainted with Malaysia fall in love with it once and forever. There are many reasons to love Malaysia. I have been to Malaysia many times, but I still have a few reasons to visit this amazing country again. Malaysia is known for its breathtakingly beautiful tropical beaches, diversity and mix of different cultures, friendly people and exquisite food. In fact, there are so many things to be fond of so you won`t stand it but indulge the temptation and visit this fantastic country.
1. Coast lines
This must be number one in any list compiled about Malaysia. Its beaches are just paradise. You can relieve your body and soul there. You can do all the possible sea activities and enjoy yourself in peaceful atmosphere sipping coconut water. And if to think that summer never ends in those lands you come to relies that Malaysia is the best place in the world.
Nothing can be compared with the dishes you can try only in Malaysia. Actually there is no pure Malaysian cuisine as the multicultural population of the country adds something special from their own cuisine traditions to the cuisine of the natives. It is not purely Chinese or Indian, they interweave with each other forming Malaysian Indian and Malaysian Chinese meals. You can enjoy them only in Malaysia among the locals.

Malaysia has a very rich history and fascinating traditions. It is multi-faceted as it combines cultures of Malays, Indians, Chinese and Bornean natives. The country has a special atmosphere of feeling the oncoming festival. And what festivals they have! The nation really has the inborn talent to arrange such exciting, pompous and splendid events. That`s why they have so many public holidays which you just can`t miss.
Unfortunately, in our contemporary world we can`t entirely avoid pollution but Malaysia definitely belongs to those countries with less pollution. You can feel it immediately as you get there. Nothing can substitute the delight of breathing fresh air, walking clean streets and seeing clear blue sky above. I think this is very important for us to strive for clean ear and grounds always and everywhere.
Malaysia is the ideal place for those who love summer above all. The climate of the country allows people to go at the beach and enjoy water and sun any time you want. It is a real paradise not to worry about the cold, isn`t it? As you move from Europe to Malaysia you certainly feel the difference between Malaysian hot and humid climate and cold European.
Mother Nature has endowed Malaysia not only with climate but also with beautiful greenery, animal world and landscape. This allows tourists and natives to be engaged into all kinds of outdoor activities. You may go hiking, rafting or jungle trekking. Here you can draw nearer to nature and, of course, find many adventures. This would make anybody love this country!

7. Friendly people
It’s amazing how people who have absolutely different backgrounds can come together as ‘One Malaysia.’ People in Malaysia know how to respect each other because they live in a multicultural society. In Malaysia, nearly half the population can speak the 3 languages, which are Malay, English and Chinese. Communication is obviously extremely important for people living in a peaceful society. What I love the most about Malaysia is that the people are very friendly, especially taxi drivers. If you don’t find them annoying, they can be a wonderful companion.
8. Taman Negara
Taman Negara (literally translated “National Park”) encompasses 3 states across the northern part of West Malaysia and covers a total area of about 4,343 km². The major activities here include adventurous cave exploration, exciting trekking, interesting fishing, canopy walking (the longest of its kind in the world), fabulous night walks, great swimming, and visiting the Orang Asli (Semokberi and Batek) and their villages.
9. Paradise for shopaholics
Do you love shopping? If your answer is ‘yes,’ then you should definitely consider going to Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur is the paradise for all shopaholics. It offers everything ranging from beautiful handmade products to funky clothes, and many more. There’s a great variety of large shopping complexes that let you shop for yourself, your family and friends. Plus, there are awesome sales and discounts so make sure to check them out.
I can`t wait to come back to Malaysia as it is a fascinating, beautiful and wonderful country. I really hope you`ll be lucky to visit it at least once in your lifetime and you will fall in love with it from the first sight, then your heart will be dying to come back there again.
