Before you decide to travel to Malaysia, you should first plan your vacation. Malaysia consists of Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah&Sarawak which separated by the South China Sea. (look at the map). If you have decided to go to Penang for example, you can get a pamplet to guide you from the travel agency. Learn to familiarize with Malay Language. Its a national language for Malaysia. If you want to greet someone "How are you?" say, "Apa Khabar?" . Below I listed down few words that can guide you a little.
