Iskandar Malaysia is a vast economic development zone that covers an area three times the size of neighboring Singapore. Quest tours the set of Netflix series “Marco Polo” at Iskandar Malaysia Studios before visiting Forest City, a $100 billion development that is under construction elsewhere in the zone.
Halal Tourism (04:05)
Islam is Malaysia’s state religion, and many businesses within the country’s tourism industry cater to Islamic visitors. Quest visits a halal-certified hotel. He is surprised to find only subtle differences between it and most other hotels.
