Chow Down on Plenty of Rendang
The local people of Malaysia certainly do know how to eat, and if you enjoy filling your stomach with lots of spicy food, you may already be familiar with rendang, which is a spicy meat curry that is enjoyed all over Indonesia and Malaysia. You can find all different kinds of meats in a rendang, but beef is probably the most traditional. The thick sauce typically contains coconut, garlic, shallots, chilli, ginger, and lemongrass, and it packs a mighty punch.
Take a Ride on the Jungle Railway
There are many different ways to traverse the land of Malaysia, and one of our favourite ways has to be taking a ride on the Jungle Railway, which starts in Trumpat and winds its way through thick rainforest to reach Kota Bahru. At some points the jungle surrounding the train is so dense that the foliage scrapes against the train carriages on both sides to that you feel totally immersed in nature. You can only buy tickets on the same day.
Pick Strawberries in the Cameron Highlands
The Cameron Highlands is the best place in Malaysia for escaping the heat and humidity, and for cooling off a little in beautiful greenery. This part of the country is best known for its gorgeous tea plantations that thrive thanks to the cool temperatures that the altitude brings. But this part of Malaysia isn’t just about tea, it’s also a spot where a lot of strawberries are grown. The Big Red Strawberry Farm is a place where you can actually pick strawberries yourself and also eat lots of strawberry flavoured treats.
Shop at the Bustling Central Market in Kuala Terengganu
If you want to get to a know a country, you really have to immerse yourself in its market culture. This is particularly important in southeast Asia, and one of the greatest markets in Malaysia is the Central Market in Kuala Terengganu. Now this isn’t the kind of place where you are going to stroll and purchase cute souvenirs – it’s a bustling and frenetic market for local people. You’ll find lots of exotic snacks, and a bevvy of photo opportunities.
