Shall we saunter to hidden beaches and rest along the white sand? Batu Ferringhi, Redang or Langkawi might suit us quite well. Or perhaps we should take our chances in spotting Malaysia’s clouded leopards, hornbills, orangutans, and walking catfish? Off we go to Borneo, where we’ll stay in a top eco-friendly lodge. Or would we rather stroll through colonial buildings, shop along cobblestone streets, and indulge in some of the world’s best street food? Let’s go to George Town, where diverse cultures from India, China, and Malaysia are celebrated over generations, and modern street art adds to the local flavor. Conveniently enough, George Town and Penang are easy to add to any other Asia trip as an extension.
