Let Us Plan Your Travel to Malaysia

One of the world’s most enchanting vacation destinations, Malaysia offers everything from postcard-perfect beaches framed by pristine waters for diving to wildlife-filled jungle, well-preserved historic treasures, mouth-watering cuisine, and some of the friendliest locals you’ll ever meet. Even in ancient times, this country was a designated spot on the spice trade route which has resulted in the local foods bringing together flavours from across the globe. It’s not unusual to enjoy an Indian breakfast and a Nyona lunch followed by a Korean dinner. Populated by a mix of Malays, Indians, Chinese and indigenous groups, it has a rich cultural heritage with its capital city of Kuala Lumpur a place where colonial shophouses, traditional wet markets and pockets of lush greenery lie adjacent to gleaming 21st-century skyscrapers and air-conditioned mega malls. Its UNESCO World Heritage-listed George Town and Malacca offer unique cultural and architecture townscapes, developed over 500 years of Southeast Asian trade and cultural exchange.

Many visitors come to Malaysia for its ancient rainforest with much of the jungle unspoiled and protected in national parks, with remarkable biodiversity that includes everything from rhododendrons in high altitude forests to orchids in the lowlands. The wildlife watching is impressive too, with the most common sightings including colourful birds, although silvered leaf monkeys, tapirs and orangutans can also be spotted. The ocean is incredibly abundant with marine life with dolphins, sea turtles, sharks and shoals of tropical fish.  Malaysia’s islands are destinations of themselves, with Langkawi and Penang exceptionally famous as must-visit spots.

Where to visit in Malaysia

Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Malaysia.

  • Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur

    Malaysia’s capital and largest city, Kuala Lumpur is defined by its rich natural reserves, colorful culture and friendly locals. It’s home to colonial architecture, towering skyscrapers, minarets, mogul-style domes and a wealth of attractions. Some of its notable landmarks include the Petronas Twin Towers, the world’s tallest twin skyscrapers, and Batu Caves which dates back more than 400 million years. While there is a reverence for ancient culture, it’s balanced with a plugged-in modern world and a contemporary art scene. Visitors can mingle with the locals in their favorite pastime, shopping and dining, in air-conditioned malls and the popular Central Market.

  • Penang

    Penang

    An island located about five miles of mainland Malaysia, Penang is nicknamed the “Pearl of the Orient,” home to soft white sandy beaches and an impressive culinary scene. It has a diverse mix of cultures, with modern developments juxtaposed with mosques, temples and historic buildings, while the coast is lined with sleepy fishing villages and luxury resorts. The colonial city of George Town is its multicultural capital, with historic British buildings, magnificent mosques and crumbling shophouses in its oldest section. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s also one of the top spots in all of Southeast Asia for sampling tasty street foods of all types, including local Malay, Chinese and Indian.

  • Langkawi

    Langkawi

    The “Jewel of Kedah,” Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea, approximately 30 miles off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. Just two are inhabited, Pulau Tuba and Pulau Langkawi, the largest and most populated, synonymous with pristine sandy beaches, wildlife-filled jungles and bargain shopping. Its striking rugged beauty can be found in forest parks, hot springs and magnificent waterfalls. The island isn’t overly developed – although there are plenty of beach bars, seafood restaurants and spas, it’s also home to villages that have managed to preserve local traditions.

  • Cameron Highlands

    Cameron Highlands

    Malaysia’s most popular highland retreat, Cameron Highlands sits at nearly 6562 feet at its highest point, enjoying a climate that’s cooler than the rest of the country, boasting a stunning landscape blanketed in green. Travelers come to walk through charming little villages and forests, visit waterfalls, sprawling emerald tea plantations, strawberry, butterfly and honeybee farms, while escaping the sweltering heat of the lowlands. Both wildflowers and vegetables thrive here, with vendors selling organic onions, carrots and cauliflower grown by local farmers along the main road in the eight loosely connected villages.
