ABOUT MALAYSIAN CULTURE
The culture of Malaysia has arisen from the mingling of the traditions of the various peoples who have been settling on its shores and in its hills for centuries with those of indigenous Malays. Religious traditions sit in harmony with modern technological advances, and the Buddhist and Hindu minorities coexist peacefully alongside the Muslim majority. This has made Malaysia a country rich with living religious history: ancient temples and festivals from across a full range of beliefs are still maintained alongside the metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, allowing visitors to the country to experience an unparalleled cross-section of Asian culture.
Malaysians aren't shy about celebrating their heritage, and you'll find the streets of its cities and villages transformed into carnivals overnight in observance of festivals and holidays ranging from Chinese New Year (Chap Goh Meh) to the Hindu festival of Thaipusam. Lanterns, parades and holiday dishes ensure that no day in Malaysia is like any other. Odds are your visit will coincide with a variety of cultural events - get ready to experience Asian culture as never before!
