Holidays to Malaysia

This exquisite part of the world is renowned for its mix of Dutch, Portuguese and British influences. Malaysia is comprised of two regions – East Malaysia and Peninsular Malaysia. East Malaysia is made up of two states – Sarawak and Sabah – while Peninsular Malaysia is made up of 11 states.

Malaysian holidays will take you back into the colonial era of small trade villages. Kuching is one of the most popular travel destinations in the country and offers visitors a chance to see the local mosques, temples, museums and colonial ruins as well as an opportunity to shop at authentic native markets.

Your holidays in Malaysia can take you deep into the unspoiled tropical forests where rich flora and fauna await nature lovers. The magnificent mountains that surround the area make trekking a very popular activity. Malaysia is also a gourmet’s paradise, offering up some of the best cuisine in all of Asia.

Taking a short train ride from Kuala Lumpur to the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia will have visitors enjoying jungle swimming holes, suspended canopies, and peaceful walking trails including a 200 metre long rainforest boardwalk. The Batu Caves and Zoo Negara are also close by.

Taking holidays to Malaysia will surely include an abundance of sun and sand. Malaysia has some of the finest white sand beaches and most peaceful resorts in the region. It is also a great place to enjoy some of the finest diving and marine parks available. For those looking to do a little shopping during their Malaysian holidays, the local night markets, many shopping complexes and side street stalls will provide you with all the shopping you can handle.

Some of the main attractions in this part of Asia can be found in the region’s major cities. Kuala Lumpur is the main gateway into Malaysia as well as the Federal Capital. It is a vibrant city exploding with both old and new sights. Visitors here will be able to see the KLCC Petronas Twin Towers, one of the tallest buildings in the world.

If you would rather your holidays in Malaysia be more tranquil, perhaps a stop in the Cameron Highlands will be the answer. This popular hill resort is surrounded by thick a jungle and provides endless areas of fruit and vegetable farms as well as tea plantations, flower nurseries and cool summer breezes. There is also an 18-hole golf course waiting for those who choose to stay in the area.

Climate

There are no distinct seasons in Malaysia, making any time a good time to visit. Most beach resorts begin to fill with visitors in March, however, the climate here is generally hot and humid all year round with an average daily temperature of between 20 C and 30 C. The days will provide an abundance of warmth and sun while the nights are pleasantly cool.

Currency

The currency of Malaysia is the Malaysian Ringgit, which comes in notes as well as coins.
