Malaysia

Malaysia is called "true Asia", because the country is the intersection of many Asian cultures. Malays, Chinese, Hindus and Indian Muslims, Thais and the indigenous people of the peninsula live here.
Malaysia has glittering towers of the 21st century side by side with colonial shops, orchid gardens and traditional antique markets. The highlight of the country are also the snow-white beaches and the impenetrable jungle, where you can dive headlong into the world of wild nature and experience its pristine beauty.

As a result of historical migrations of colonization by foreign powers and its geographical location, Malaysia's culinary style is primarily a blend of traditions of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, Filipino and Thai cuisine. This resulted in a symphony of flavors that make Malaysian cuisine very complex and diverse. During your trip to Malaysia we recommend that you try the following dishes:
Nasi Lemak - rice cooked in coconut milk, garnished with a spicy sambal shrimp chili sauce;
Ikan Bakar - fish grilled over charcoal and in a banana leaf with chili paste;
Assam Laksa - noodles in brown fish soup;
Char kuay teow - rice noodles fried over high heat with shrimp, bean sprouts, chives and often an egg.
The official language is Malay, the mother tongue of the majority Malay ethnic group. The main ethnic groups in Malaysia are the Malays, Chinese and Indians who speak their own language. English is widely understood and spoken in the service industry and is a compulsory subject in elementary and secondary schools. It is also the main language spoken in most private colleges and universities.
