Tasty food, flashy shopping malls, beautiful beaches and rainforests. A melting pot of adventure, culture and experience.
Best time to visit
Best time to visit Malaysia differs from East to West. East is best from May - September and West is best from December - February. KL is best from May to July.
Money saving tips
My best saving tips are to download the Grab app for taxi rides, book apartments via Airbnb and make sure you have a kitchen to cook your own meals.
The daily suggested budget for Malaysia is $30-40 USD, assuming you stay in a fully serviced apartment and eat at mid-range places.
Favourite thing to do
We spent a month in Malaysia, but my favorite was Kuala Lumpur. The city is so vibrant and there is plenty to do both day and night.
Malaysia is a vibrant country of contrasts, with a unique blend of cultures and cuisines. From the capital city of Kuala Lumpur and its towering skyline to untouched rainforest and idyllic beaches, Malaysia has something for everyone. Explore ancient cities like Malacca or take a cruise down the Kinabulu River for stunning views.
Try your hand at traditional local dishes like char kuey teow or nasi lemak and discover why Malaysia is truly Asia’s melting pot.
