Wake up to a glow in the horizon. The sun is rising, setting the skies ablaze in splendour. Walk along banks of soft, golden sands, as balmy breeze, cool ocean sprays and the sound of waves invigorates your soul. For an adventure, take a boat cruise through 17kms of pristine riverine in the mangrove sanctuary of Sepang.
A fertile cradle of life teeming with exotic wildlife, the natural “soundtrack” of whistling ducks, singing birds and crickets will be a sheer delight. As the boat meanders along the way, catch joyful glimpses of dragonflies and turtles, or the elusive Purple Heron as it swoops majestically across the calm, watery expanse
Feel the winds of fortune flowing in. Sepang GoldCoast, the only beachfront land bank within Malaysia’s Greater KL, looks out to the Straits of Malacca, once recognised as “one of the most important shipping lanes in the world”. Vessels laden with exquisite goods of brocades, perfumes and precious stones have sailed through here from the ancient kingdoms of Arabia, Africa, and Persia, to trade in China.
Dive into the multicultural paradise of Malaysia. With a population of over 32 million, the unique melting pots of cultures, traditions and festivities have made it into a favourite travel destination, with unforgettable gastronomic delights. The multi-ethnic and multilingual society of Malaysia generally consists of about 63% Bumiputras, 23% Chinese, and 8% Indians, with the remaining 6% being the Orang Asli.
Harness the advantages of a Commonwealth nation. Historically, upon discovering an abundance of natural resources here, Malaysia became a colony of the Great Britain. By the time of independence in 1957, it’s undeniable that the British presence have left behind a lasting legacy through education, transport and plantations. This paved the way for Malaysia’s growth as a fast developing nation—a common attribute shared by most, if not all Commonwealth nations.
Besides that, Commonwealth nations have common values and goals, including “the promotion of democracy, human rights, good governance, the rule of law, individual liberty, egalitarianism, free trade, multilateralism and world peace.”
