When To Go

Malaysia's climate is typical of countries sitting around the Equator, with high temperatures and some months showing particularly high levels of rainfall.

Visitors to Malaysia can enjoy the fantastic beaches all year round, with temperatures only falling to around 20°C while they can rise to comfortably above 30°C. Temperatures are considerably cooler at higher elevations, with highs of around 25°C and lows of 15°C.

Beach holidays are possible 12 months a year due to there being separate rainy seasons for the east and west coasts. The rainy season in the west is between April and October, with brief thunderstorms in the afternoon offering just brief interludes between glorious sunny spells.

The east coast on the other hand has a far more intense rainy season between November and February. During this time it is highly recommended to explore the west coast of the country, with many resorts in the east choosing to close during this period.

What To See

There are many fantastic activities for visitors to Malaysia to enjoy, ranging from cultural walks to meeting some of the world's most extraordinary animals.

Kinabalu National Park can be explored with the spectacular Mt Kinabalu its centre piece. Borneo offers visitors the opportunity to trek through dense rainforest, climbing rock faces and following jungle trails while discovering a magnificent array of plants and wildlife. You can also experience the culture of the local indigenous communities.

Malaysia is home to many distinctive buildings, with the Kek Lok Si Temple, the biggest Buddhist temple in the country, almost as recognisable as the iconic Petronas Towers.

Visitors looking to experience authentic Malaysian life can venture to the Imbi Market, full of food stalls and a party atmosphere. Then there is Gelanggang Seni where locals exhibit shadow puppet shows, drumming and silat, a Malaysian martial art.

Last but by no means least, visitors can go to the beautiful islands of Langkawi and Pangkor to explore Malaysia's stunning coral reefs, with numerous water sports and fantastic diving sites.
