The introduction of this visa-free policy will significantly impact the citizens of China and Malaysia, which will increase the opportunities for more cultural exchanges between the citizens of the two countries.


As Chinese students in Malaysia, many of our international students have received questions from their relatives and friends in China asking for information about various aspects of Malaysia, such as history, scenery, tourist attractions and food recommendations.


Against this backdrop, journalist Lu Jingjing from UKM Nadi Bangi shared a trip to Malaysia that welcomed a group of Chinese friends after the release of the visa-free policy. As a young tour guide, she led her friends to enjoy Kuala Lumpur.


"Nasi Lemak tastes good, but its spiciness is out of my range," said  Lu Jingjing's friend Long YuJia from China.”


As a tour guide, Lu Jingjing led her friends to try the unique local cuisine, including Nasi Lemak, Satay and a variety of delicious sugar water at the night market. It even tasted durian from Penang from a century-old tree, which made her friends keep exclaiming about the deliciousness of the black-spiked durian, and Long YuJia exclaimed that the spiciness of the Nasi Lemak is more than what Shanghainese people can handle.



After exploring the city of Kuala Lumpur and enjoying Petronas Twin Towers, Tsz Chiang Street, Pasar Seni and Genting Highlands, the infinity pool on the hotel's top floor was the highlight of the trip. Long YuJia could take photos with the Twin Towers from the infinity pool on the top of the building.


In addition, they found unique handicrafts from the East Malaysian islanders at the local market in Kuala Lumpur as souvenirs, which left a lasting impression on the trip.



For Lu Jingjing, being a tour guide was a challenging and fun experience. It enriched her knowledge of Malaysia and made her understand cultural differences better while deepening her understanding of friendship and responsibility.


The role of a tour guide is not only to introduce attractions but also to promote cultural exchange. By sharing the language and cultural practices  Lu Jingjing learned in Malaysia, she successfully contributed to the deepening friendship between the two countries. The trip became a genuine cultural exchange, giving her a more profound sense of friendship and cross-cultural experience.
