Malaysia is a multi-cultural country. The main ethnic groups are the native Malays as well as large populations of Chinese, and Indians. Hence, greetings in a social context will depend upon the ethnicity of the person you are meeting. In general, most Malays are aware of Western ways so the handshake is normal. There may be slight differences though and a few things to bear in mind include: • Malay women may not shake hands with men. Women can of course shake hands with women. Men may also not shake hands with women and may bow instead while placing their hand on their heart. • The Chinese handshake is light and may be rather prolonged. Men and women may shake hands, although the woman must extend her hand first. Many older Chinese lower their eyes during the greeting as a sign of respect. • Indians shake hands with members of the same gender. When being introduced to someone of the opposite gender, nodding the head and smiling is usually sufficient.
All rooms are equipped with at least 5 electrical points. The standard plug in Malaysia is 3 pin UK plug.
Tipping is not required, nor expected. However, if you wish, you can tip MYR 5 - 10 per bag to the bellman,room service and the housekeeper.
