Tourism in Malaysia is certainly a photographer’s delight as it is a land of almost surreal juxtapositions.
Where else in the world can a visitor take in breathtaking vistas that seem to flow back and forth in time, from an ultra-modern airport to acres of plantations that once spearheaded the country’s agricultural dominance, and from pre-war shop houses all the way to towering skyscrapers?
Here, a tourist can cast his eyes in a sweeping panorama of bewitching million-year-old rainforests to a luxurious five-star resort, and wonder if he has stepped into a Salvador Dali painting.
From the prevalent Malay crafts dating back to the days of sultanate rule, to the exuberant Chinese festivities, Indian trade influences and a smorgasbord of other communities, the imagery of Malaysia’s social fabric is at once vivid and truly unique.
Yet even as words or pictures can articulate the essence of a place, Malaysia’s most intimate nuances, like the genuine smiles of its people to year-round warmth of its tropical climate, must be experienced to be fully appreciated.
