Malaysia is a place that is wrapped with liveliness, surrounded by exotic sea sides and blended with amazing cultural diversity. From Penang to Sipadan Island, wherever you go you will be welcomed in the lap of nature with hints of adventure in the air.
1. Language Diversity
There is no need to think twice about language in Malaysia. Being a multilingual country you will find English speaking people easily there. The native language is Malay which is the official language too and is the commonly used language. But tourists can easily use English as the medium of communication. Many people also speak Chinese, Tamil and Iban.
2. Delicious Delicacies
As the cultural diversity is influenced by many countries, therefore cuisines are also of much varieties. They are cheap and easily available at the local market places.
The Nasi Lemak is the national dish which you must taste once. You will find lots of Chinese , Singaporean and Filipino cuisines around the country. If you are a foodie and love all the spicy delicacies then Penang is your destination.
3. Poor Restaurant Service
Food is great, no doubt, but service is not up to the mark. First you will receive a waiter at your service ready to write down your order even before you sit properly. Second, their organization is poor. They do not bring the plates together, so most of the time you will have to wait till all comes.
4. Environmental Issues
Right after getting down to Malaysia you will notice that the palm tree plantation is excessively done almost in all part of the country. People also use much plastics and the rainforest is vastly depleted. People are not towards a sustainable environment rather only making advancements.
But there is one thing worth mentioning and that is the care they take to protect the wildlife. There are many natural parks and reserves where you will see wonderful animals.
The Malaysian rain forest is regarded as the oldest rain forest which is even older than the Amazon forest. Here you will find orangutans, white tigers and tigers freely moving about in their natural habitat.
