You may not find it easy to visit each and every nation of Asia, but still, you have your options to visit the more popular places in Asia. What you need to do is to a little research and Internet browsing.
If you ask someone who had visited many places in Asia, to name a country, which falls in the top of the list, then it has to be Malaysia. The country provides you many reasons to visit Malaysia. You would be mesmerized by the beauty of Malaysia.

But why would you like to think Malaysia is truly Asia? Is it just the Asian food, which is found in the country, or there is something more to it.

However, one reason why Malaysia is hailed as the true Asian country is the presence of various Asian cultures in the country. Different ethnic group stayed together in harmony for many years. Itâ€™s a joy to see the ethnic society mingle with each other and share their culture, and it is probably one reason, why Tourism in Malaysia has shot up. People who come to visit the country find the different Asian groups and also many ethnic groups live in complete coordination and harmony.
The three many cultural groups in Malaysia, namely the Malays, the Chinese and the Indians bring about a rare fusion of various cultures and bring to the fore of what Asia is. Asians have always stood for multi cultures and tribes in a society and the presence of various groups and cultures make the society and the culture more interesting.
Multicultural society had also added a rare dimension to the cultural beauty of the country. Each of the ethnic group present tin Malaysia has their own festivals. If you go to Malaysia, you would come across many kinds of festivals being celebrated in every society. Malaysians enjoy their festivals, and they make the visitors understand the significance of their festivals, which tourists love to celebrate.
