If you fancy watching a naturally synchronised light show performed by fireflies or a chance to visit the Pearl of the Orient, Malaysia is the country to visit. Malaysia is a country full of exotic sights, natural beauty, and a rich diversity of land and culture.
If it is the fireflies that take your fancy, head for Kuala Selangor, north of Kuala Lumpur, the capital. The tiny insects gather in particular trees along the Sungai Selangor river and boat trips are constantly ferrying passengers to the ‘show trees’ for a dazzling display of lights. The Pearl of the Orient is the island of Penang, a popular tourist destination in the north of Malaysia. Here you can gaze at colonial architecture, visit the newest national park of Malaysia, and take a look at the largest Buddhist shrine in Malaysia.
