A melting-pot of Malay, Chinese, Indian, colonial and indigenous influences have created a stunning array of landscapes, architecture, culture and festivals. Spirit of Malaysia takes the reader on a whirlwind tour – from the bustling metropolises of Kuala Lumpur and George Town to the tranquil padi fields of Kedah and the from rainforests of Sarawak to the idyllic beach resorts of myriad tropical islands. Packed with up-to-date photographs of the country’s varied treasures this fascinating visual feast is the ultimate souvenir for visitors wanting to capture the true spirit of Malaysia.
