    I visited Malaysia last year for 3 weeks and fell in love with the country and its friendly people, delicious food, and unforgettable shophouse architecture. Before, during, and after my travels there, I read over 10 books on Malaysia. Here is my growing list of books set in Malaysia. If you’re planning on traveling to Penang, the best book to read is The Gift of Rain by Tan Twan Eng.
