Further north is the island of Penang, where history and culture meet amazing tropical beaches. On the west coast is Melacca, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its rich colonial history that has been preserved and proudly displayed throughout the town.
Across the South China Sea is Malaysian Borneo.

Outdoor enthusiasts also make their way up to the summit of Mt. Kinabalu, the country's highest peak found in Sabah . Scuba divers should not leave without travelling the depths of Palau Sipadan Island, Layang Layang, and many more. These are just a few of the innumerable things to see and do in Malaysia, which can be discovered through the various Malaysia tours.
