Malaysia Photography Tours: The Best Places To Snap

Malaysia photography tours are a great way to see the unseen sides of diverse, multi-cultural Malaysia. While most regular, mainstream tours will take you to the general sightseeing landmarks, a great photographer with expert local knowledge can help you see the parts of Malaysia that tourists don't usually see.

One such place you must visit is Melaka City (also known as Malacca City). This charming city is swarming with modern traffic, yet the ancient buildings offer history – making this a terrific contrast to fully show in your photography. When it comes to photography tours in Malaysia, and indeed photography tours Asia wide, areas of natural beauty always make for a great venue. Here you can carry out landscape, nature and even wildlife photography. In Malaysia, Kenyir Lake acts as a gateway to Taman Negara National Park. Both places are great to visit for photography, but Kenyir Lake is notable as it is the largest artificial lake in the whole of south east Asia. Despite not being natural, around the lake are approximately 340 small islands with waterfalls and caves, as well as an abundance of wildlife. Hire a boat, explore and find plentiful photo opportunities. Lastly, Penang's George Town plays host to characterful rustic wall paintings by Ernest Zacharevic, a Lithuanian artist. These quirky paintings can be found around many corners and are rather delightful 'secrets' amongst the old architecture. There really is a lot to see and do in a country the size of Malaysia, but don't be afraid to walk the paths least traveled in order to find truly unique and interesting shots.

For that reason, any photographer should go on Malaysia photography tours to see a different side of this magnificent nation.
