As Malaysia was this year’s official partner country at ITB Berlin, the booth was much bigger than in previous years. Underlining the extraordinary cultural diversity of this Southeast Asian nation, the ITB opening ceremony featured dances from numerous tribes and ethnic groups, and the stand also played host to regular performances. Malaysia has so much to offer – hardly any country is so diverse – in every aspect – and at the same time so easy and uncomplicated to travel to. The many cultures found in Malaysia bring along their very own eating habits. Therefore, the Malaysian cuisine incorporates Chinese, Indian and Malay ideas as well as inspirations from Arabian and European countries.
