On my recent trip to Malaysia I was able to attend the celebration of the official Deepavali Festival in Melaka, just a couple of hours south of Kuala Lumpur. Dignitaries and ministers from the country were all in attendance. In fact, I was seated at a table next to the Malaysian Prime Minister!
I’m excited to announce that I’m going to Malaysia this weekend! The country has been high on my list for a while, and I just missed going there last Fall after diving in Thailand. I’ll be there for almost 3 weeks, traveling all over the country looking for the best food and cultural experiences I can find. Here are my top 5 reasons to go to Malaysia.
