Here are the top 5 best places to visit in Malaysia. If countries were to be awarded for diversity, Malaysia would rank first. Malaysia is not only a melting pot of ethnic cultures but also a fusion of many different customs, cuisines, and religions that all coexist peacefully. From large island groups to mountains and tropical rainforests, the country’s geography is diverse in every respect. Moreover, Malaysia is a unique country that is divided into two main land masses. West Malaysia occupies the southern half of the peninsula shared with Thailand, while East Malaysia is located on the island of Borneo. Here’s a look at the best places to visit in Malaysia.
Melaka, often referred to as Malacca, is one of the most important centers of Malaysian history. Melaka has been an important trading center due to its location along the spice route. Due to this attractive location, many traders from India, China, Portugal, Holland, and Arabia used to come to this port to buy and sell their goods. Traces of all these people can be found to this day, so it is not surprising to see temples, churches, and mosques on the same street. Today, Melaka is one of the most visited cities in Malaysia by locals, Singaporeans, and Chinese tourists. Melaka’s great appeal stems from its many historic buildings, street markets, and Peranakan culture. The latter form a unique ethnic group, as they are the descendants of Chinese traders who married Malay women. So, visiting some of their museums as well as trying their food is highly recommended. In the list below, you will find some of my recommended places.

Masjid China Melaka, Cheng He Museum How to reach Melaka, Take a bus from Kuala Lumpur (tickets are usually very cheap, and the trip takes about three hours).
