Come & Experience The Heritage Of All...

 

Greetings any visitor to Malaysia is an amazing diversity of local faces and global races. A legacy born since the days when this realm that straddles the Asian continent and the Malay Archipelago became a historic crossroads of peoples and cultures of seafarers and traders.   From the age of ancient kingdoms culminating in the fabulous 15th century Malacca Sultanate came a legacy of trade that brought people from China, India, Persia and Arabia, and from the 16th century a succession of Europeans Portuguese, Dutch and British. Over time all the groups intermingled, natives and newcomers, weaving a rich heritage that evolved to become the multi-ethnic yet harmonious nation it is today.   Thus to experience the heritage of Malaysia is to share in an ancient and modem mix of the cultures in all of Asia, and beyond.
