Malaysia: Best Asian destination

Attracting over 29 million visitors from across the world, Malaysia is becoming one of the major stopovers for international travellers, backpackers and adventure seekers heading out to other amazing destinations in the Asian Pacific Region. Great cultural mix, interesting history, exotic islands and world-class cities are amongst many reasons why avid travellers choose Malaysia as a starting point for exploring the region. Not only this, AirAsia, Malaysia's best budget airline is one of the fastest-growing budget airlines in the world offering cheap airfares to some of the most interesting destinations in ASEAN countries and beyond.

I have driven extensively across mainland Malaysia as well as Southern Malaysia and have accumulated a wealth of experiences on the way. Most of the content on this site is coming from my trip notes, road trips and family holidays taken in a period of the last fifteen years.

Darling Harbour is situated walking distance from the central station as well as Town Hall Sation (nearest). Central location for tourists Darling Harbour is popular with tourist from all ages groups. There is an IMAX theatre, Japanese Garden and Maritime MuseumChina Town is just down the road. It's better to explore the area on foot as there are lots of walkways and both sides of the harbour are lined with top of the line restaurants. King Street Wharf has some of the trendiest nightclubs and bars including Cargo Bar and Varanda Bar which are quite popular with the younger crowd. 

You can hop on one of the lunch or dinner cruises on King Street Wharf and learn more about the history of the area while enjoying some breathtaking views. You can also charter your own cruise for special events. The ferries run from the harbour bridge all the way to Paramatta in the west and up to Manly towards the north. 

Star Casino is located right next to the casino and there is a number of nice restaurants in the adjoining area of Pyrmont including Flying Fish and Signorelli  Gastronomia.
