With excellent modern infrastructure, exotic food choices and numerous cultural attractions, Malaysia has gained prominence in Southeast Asia as a premier business tourism destination. To further strengthen Malaysia’s business events brand and to position the country as one of the world’s leading international meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE) destination, the Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) was established by the Ministry of Tourism Malaysia in 2009.

Exploring ancient rainforests on an exciting eco adventure. Or white water rafting on the rivers of Pahang and Sarawak.  The country provides a perfect opportunity for meeting organisers to plan team-building exercises.

Cultural Diversity
Malaysia is a multicultural society with a spirit of tolerance and acceptance throughout the country and a diversity that is evident to every visitor. Law and order is upheld by both the government and citizens alike, and a stable democratic political climate is maintained. Malaysians enjoy a good standard of living, the crime rate is low.

Malaysia has a rich cultural heritage that is widely evident, Malaysians are just about the most diverse people you’ll ever meet. Malays, Chinese, Indians, Peranakan (Straits Chinese), Eurasians, Ibans and other indigenous groups all live in harmony as neighbours. There are festivals all year round including Hari Raya (Eid ul-Fitr), Chinese New Year, Deepavali, Christmas, Gawai or harvest festivals and Tadau Ka-amatan. This has resulted in a nation alive with traditions and colours and an amazing variety of food, costumes, arts, and music.{/tabs}
