Rock climbing opportunities with more than 160 routes in the area are also accessible for the more daring travelers.
2. Relax in the cakes
The city of Sarawak Kuching in East Malaysia was named after a miscommunication between the discovering James Brooke and the local indigenous population, who believed they were referring to a street cat when asked about the land on which the city was located.

6. Ascend to Taiping Maxwell Hill
Taiping is located on the outside of Penang, in the Perak State, an unknown location which is doubly popular for having a unique Chinese name in Malaysia and being the wettest city in the world. The second is the more critical one, because the wildlife is exuberant and fertile, and some of them are over a hundred years old in Lake Taiping Gardens. There is also a hill station at an altitude of about 1.000 feet called Maxwell Hill, which offers visitors the chance to trek and camp, and jeep tours to the station are very much enjoyed by locals and tourists.
