Malaysia has a vibrant mix of oriental culture – it is a true melting pot that offers a perfect fusion of Chinese, Indian and Malay customs and cultures, with a smattering of Dutch colonial art and architecture. Its cities are the ideal blend of old and new, classical and contemporary, with modern skylines in Kuala Lumpur mixed with perfect examples of colonial architecture in Malacca and George Town. Its landscape is just as varied, ranging from the palm-fringed, perfect white-sand beaches of Langkawi, to the rolling hills of the Cameron Highlands and the wild jungles of Borneo. The country is also renowned for its award-winning hotels, like The Datai and the private Pangkor Laut island resort, as well as for its equally-famous spas at Tanjong Jara and the Spa Village at Pangkor.
