Pinterest is now fully translated into Malay, the language spoken in Malaysia. We’re excited to welcome our new Southeast Asian Pinners and to celebrate, we’re going to share a few of our favorite Malaysian Pins and boards.
Malaysia is located partly on Asian mainland and partly on the northern tip of the island of Borneo. The mainland side shares a border with Thailand and the island part shares borders with Brunei and Indonesia. To start your Malaysia tour across land and sea visit the capital, Kuala Lumpur, home of the Batu Caves, Petronas Towers and more.
The Langkawi Sky Bridge is also a must see. It’s a pedestrian bridge located at the peak of the Gunung Mat Chinchang mountain that dangles 2,300 feet above sea level!
Couple your trip with a visit to Indonesia, Singapore or Thailand — all of which are just a short boat ride, flight or drive away! Create a place board to plan your trip or make a bucket list for your travels to Malaysia like these Pinners.
Eating Malaysian food
Malaysian food is delicious and spicy, with influences from lots of cultures around the world. Why not try making something of your own this week? You could try congee, a rice porridge, or spicy laksa soup, or even sweet kuih ketayap crepes with coconut filling!
Exploring Malaysia’s diversity
Malaysia is a biodiversity hotspot. In the mountains of Borneo, you can go ape over the Orangutan Sanctuary or get close to pygmy elephants, the smallest elephants in the world. Malaysia is also home to tapirs and orchid praying mantis.
Thank you for following us through Malaysia today—we’ve got one last stop on our world tour!
