Whether we like it or not, our generation is a product of the Lonely Planet guidebook industry. So this is not a list of tourist “Things to Do in The Philippines”; this is a list of local “Must Share” experiences. A compilation of images, tastes and opportunities that are indelible to one place, and – unlike museum entrance fees and hostel names – won’t change over time. These things, the obvious and the unassuming, are so distinctly Malaysian, they make the islands different from every other country in Southeast Asia.
“Selamat Datang” = Welcome to The Pearl of The Orient!
While visiting, you should:
- Learn Bhasa Malay
- Heed the call to prayer
- Follow the food trails
Have you been to Malaysia? What experiences do you think are a distinct part of any visit to the Pearl of the Orient?
