Malaysia is regarded as one of the most multicultural countries in South-east Asia, and Malaysians pride themselves on their acceptance of other cultures. The Malays make up the largest percentage of the local population, followed by Chinese and Indians. The Malay language has a rich system of honorific titles granted by the various royal families, such as Dato, Dato Sri and Tan Sri. Remembering to use them will go a long way. On the federal level, titles are awarded and rescinded by the Yang Di Pertuan Agong, or king. Government offices are usually open from 7.30am to 5.30pm, Monday through Friday, while private sector office hours are generally open from 9.00am to 5.00pm. Lunch is typically from 1.00pm to 2.00pm, and on Fridays some offices close midday for prayers. Kuala Lumpur’s extensive public transport system consists of trains, monorails and buses. The public transport web portal – www.myrapid.com.my – offers visitors the option of planning routes between locations and suggests the fastest way between points.
