After living in Europe, a question that keeps on making us (Malaysians) kind of annoyed is “Where is Malaysia?”. Unfortunately, I think many Malaysian’s think that we are big enough that the world kind of see us. But honestly, we are still as big as an ant in the eyes of the world. Sometimes we even have a smirk on our face when they know Malaysia for the wrong reasons. Well! Sadly its either the missing or bombed airplanes, mosquitoes, muslim weirdo’s and not forgetting the bribery issues. *Rolling eyes*. Don’t get us wrong, of course there are some who do know where Malaysia is but the percentage is still relatively low in our opinion. Despite feeling sad, we don’t blame other’s of not being able to see us but we guess it is us who are not outstanding enough to be seen by others.
So, enough said! We have to start spreading nice words about our country. We are proud Malaysians after all. In fact, we are worth much more than that and we believe we are some hidden gems retaining values not only from the competitiveness of our people, the knowledge, the technology, the vision and even the attractions. Don’t stop reading yet because trust me we do have it all.
Firstly, “Where is Malaysia?”, asked a tourist guide in Austria. Slightly embarrased, “Well if you know Thailand and Singapore, then we are actually situated in between both countries”, replied Azuki Tours. Please see our country map below:
Geographically, Malaysia is located in the Southeastern of Asia. There are two parts of Malaysia which is known as the east of Malaysia or Peninsular Malaysia and also the west of Malaysia which consist of one-third of the island of Borneo. Peninsular Malaysia consist of the borders with Thailand and Singapore whereas West Malaysia borders with Indonesia, Brunei and south of Phillipines.
Malaysia is kind of a cool country in our opinion, not being biased as we are Malaysians but we believe it really is, after living in few places in the world as a comparison such as Indonesia, China and currently Europe. Of course each country has their own pro’s and con’s but we do believe it is one of the best country to include it in your bucket list at least once in a lifetime.
Why do we say that?
For someone who loves nature, we have it all from beaches, sunny weather all year round with some rains of course, green rainforest with varieties of flora and fauna’s, ice cold waterfalls, breathtaking highlands, mountains for climbing, hills for trekking, rivers for animal sightseeing, diving or snorkelling locating colorful sea animals and many more.
For someone who loves vibrant, energetic or even partying, we have unbeatable nightlife up to 3am daily, cinema’s with latest movies from Hollywood as early as the same 1st day screening in America, 24 hours mamak restaurants for cool chats to ease the party overdrive before heading home, theme park with more than 90 attractions and also outdoor activities such as rock climbing, ATV terrains as well as paintball.
For someone who only wants to relax and do nothing, we offer an easy access to massage parlour, romantic sunset view either from the boat or the beach or even on a 45 storey high building, breathtaking green view of the tea terrace while having scones or even just laze in the swimming pool or beach under the sun.
We won’t talk about shopping because it is paradise for shopaholics. Again we are reminding you to include Malaysia in your bucketlist. Sometimes we have a feeling that we have at least 1 shopping mall in every 5km radius. Well at least in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor..hahaha..
