Malaysia is a multicultural country in South-East Asia. By ‘multicultural’ I mean, that besides Malay ethnic who are 50%, there are also Chinese 23%, Orang Asal (indigenous people) 12%, Indians 7% and others. Each of these ethnics groups has a typical religious, food, culture and language. The official language of Malaysia is Malay Bahasa.
Malay are Muslims (Sunni Islam) and speak Malay Bahasa. Chinese are mostly Buddhists and speak Cantonese (some also Mandarin). Indians are Hindu and speak Tamil (South Indian language). Orang Asal who are indigenous people consisting of 18 tribes are mostly Christian.
All ethnics eat typical authentic food. In George Town in Penang, in one day, I tried ‘Nasi Goreng Ayam’ which is Chicken fried rice (Malay food) as a breakfast; then Sweet and Sour pork with steamed rice on Chinese style as a lunch; and as a dinner I had Indian Tandoori chicken with Roti Naan. Of coarse, all these food were prepared by original ethnic cooks.
After delicious food, you can visit Mosque, Buddhist Temple, Hindu Temple or Christian Church. In town like George Town in Penang, to visit all this various religious places, you do not need to travel long distances, because there are closed together.
