Malaysia Is Southeast Asia's Most Multicultural Country, According To CNN.COM
CNN.com recently described Malaysia as “Asia’s cultural melting pot.” The country is made up of a unique fusion of three of the continent’s oldest civilizations: Malay, Chinese and Indian, further enriched with the traditions of ethnic communities. “The rich mix of ethnicity, religions and historical influences is most vividly displayed in the nation's lively and animated culture,” according to CNN.

Multiculturalism has made Malaysia home to hundreds of colorful festivals, so much so that it is known as the Land of Festivals. The same blend can also be found in Malaysia’s diverse cuisine. CNN described the cuisine as “a smorgasbord of Asian flavors” that “will eventually become one of the world's most sought after.”



In addition, CNN stated that despite the global downtown, Malaysia remains “one of Asia’s most vibrant economies.” Gleaming skyscrapers dominate the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Among them are the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers, which are “the potent symbol of Malaysia’s development.” Lastly, CNN stated that National cuisine, exotic wildlife and colorful festivals make it a tourist favorite.”
