Malaysia as a Destination

Malaysia is one of the most vibrant and exciting countries in South-East Asia with its fascinating fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and the indigenous cultures including the Kadazan and Iban among many others. “Selamat Datang” means “Welcome” in Bahasa Malaysia, the national language. This greeting, written on the faces of its people, reflects the friendliness, heart-warming charm and genuine hospitality of the country.  The capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, will be the hub for the NNN Conference 2024. Known for its iconic Petronas Twin Towers, bustling markets, and diverse culinary scene, Kuala Lumpur offers a dynamic backdrop for both work and exploration.
