Malaysia is one of the most pleasant, hassle-free countries to visit in southeast Asia. It is buoyant and wealthy, and has moved towards a pluralist culture based on a vibrant fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous cultures and customs.

However, the island of East Malaysia offers spectacular wildlife, longhouses and the awe-inspiring Mt Kinabalu. Malaysia's love of Western-style industrialization is abundantly clear in its big cities.

Asia_Sri-Lanka_128294927

Sri Lanka

For a small island, Sri Lanka has many nicknames: Serendib, Ceylon, Teardrop of India, Resplendent Isle, Island of Dharma, Pearl of the Orient. This colorful collection reveals its richness and beauty, and the intensity of the affection it evokes in its visitors.

The Philippines

There are plenty of natural wonders in the Philippines - dramatic waterfalls, beautiful beaches, ancient rice terraces, hills resembling chocolate drops, reefs teeming with aquatic life. The real natural wonder of the Philippines is its outgoing people; the Bayanihan communal spirit holds Filipinos together, and they extend it to visitors as well.

Asia_Vietnam_87741958
