To love Malaysia is by visiting Malaysia – a bubbling, bustling melting-pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. Our multiculturalism has made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise and home to hundreds of colourful festivals. It’s no wonder why we love celebrating and socialising. Also, Malaysians are peace-loving, warm and friendly.
Geographically, Malaysia consists of eleven states and two federal territories (Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya) that formed Peninsular Malaysia. The East Malaysia, which includes the two states (Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo) and a third federal territory (the island of Labuan), is separated by the South China Sea.
The primary attraction in Malaysia is due to its extreme contrasts and spectacular panorama; towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts and yet five-star hotels located just a few metres away from ancient reefs. Rugged mountains reach dramatically for the sky while their rainforest-clad slopes sweep down to floodplains teeming with forest life. Cool highland hideaways roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves.
Embracing cultural diversity in Malaysia, we have purposely chosen Kuching, Sarawak located at the East Malaysia as a perfect destination for TAFGEN2020. We hope our participants and speakers find TAFGEN2020 a fascinating experience.
We are looking forward to see you at TAFGEN2020!
