Mount Kinabalu, the highest peak in Malaysia.
4,095.2 m (13,435 ft)

The main peak of the mountain can be climbed by a person with a good physical condition, and requires no mountaineering equipment. Other peaks along the massif, however, require rock climbing skills. The mountain features a large variety of flora, including wild pitcher plants and orchids.

An hour outside of Kuala Lumpur, deep into the jungle, you find the tourist resort Bukit Tingi. Built like a french village, it has a cheezy atmosphere

Penang





Penang bridge - The longest bridge in Malaysia

Before 1985, transportation between the island and the mainland was solely dependent on the state-owned ferry services that runs between Butterworth and George Town.

Currently, the Penang Bridge is being expanded from 4 lanes to 6 lanes to accommodate the increasing traffic on the bridge. There was also a proposal for a second bridge or tunnel-bridge to be built but it was postponed indefinitely due to its formidable cost.

Bridge specification

Overall Length: 13.5 km (8.4 miles)
Length Over Water: 8.4 km (5.2 miles)
Penang Island Viaduct & Approach: 1.5 km (1.0 miles)
Height of Tower Above Water: 101.5 m
Height of Bridge Above Water: 33 m

Perak



Kellie Castle

The ruins of Kellie’s Castle is located near Batu Gajah and is about 30 minutes’ drive from Ipoh. The castle remains in ruins because the construction was never completed by the original owner due to his untimely death.

The property of English rubber tycoon William Kellie Smith, the incomplete 19th-century building remains dark and mysterious with much speculation among locals and visitors about hidden rooms and secret tunnels.

Its allure and romance led these ruins to be chosen as one of the set locations for the filming of "Anna and the King" in the mid 1990's.

Melaka - The historical state of Malaysia



Melaka is the second smallest state in Malaysia, and is located in the southern part of the Malay Peninsula, on the Straits of Malacca.

Straits of Malacca and in Malay Selat Melaka is a narrow stretch of water between Peninsular Malaysia (West Malaysia) and the Indonesian island of Sumatra.



This wide-angle map of south-east Asia shows that the Strait is the
most direct route from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific. The narrowness of
the Strait makes it a pinch point for world shipping.






Christ Church: Constructed in 1753, the structure reflects original Dutch architecture. The building houses hand-crafted church benches, jointless ceiling skylights, a copper replica of the Bible, a headstone written in the Armenian language, and a replica of "The Last Supper".

Negeri Sembilan



Negeri Sembilan translated literally means "Nine States," so named because it comprises a federation of nine states. It is located on the south-west corner of Peninsular Malaysia and encompasses an area of 6,645 sq km including a 48-km gentle coastline. Seremban, the capital of Negeri Sembilan, is 64 km south of Kuala Lumpur.

Negeri Sembilan is noted for its Minangkabau-styled architecture, reflecting the influence of the State's first inhabitants from Sumatra.
