The facade of the Malaysia Pavilion resembled a traditional Malaysian Palace - replete with intricate wood work and roof - and not using a single nail in it's construction. 

Inside one could find precious artefacts from the Malaysia National Museum; a variety of arts and crafts demonstrations, including silk-weaving; and mannequin models dressed in traditional costume, all housed in traditional Malaysian design 'mini-pavilions'. Also featured was a  quick tour of the modern and contemporary - including the latest in Malaysian car manufacturing - the Proton Saga - and a mock-up interior of a Malaysian Airlines system Boeing 747.

There was also a theatrette on Malaysian tourist destinations, and the Sate Ria restaurant outside the pavilion served Malaysian take-aways.

Malaysian dancers performed daily at 11 a.m., 5 p.m., and 8 p.m.
