Travel in Malaysia

Malaysia is composed of two islands, located 700 km from each other: a peninsular island, which shares its northern border with Thailand, and an eastern island, which neighbours Indonesia. On one side, the energetic and structured capital of Kuala Lumpur boasts skyscrapers as far as the eye can see, at its head the impressive Petronas towers, a typical Chinese quarter and an upturn in economic activity. On the other hand, the country is overflowing with heavenly islands, tropical beaches, and villages full of fish, exotic flora and fauna. Malaysia is also a joyful melting pot of origins and religions. Muslims, Buddhists, Taoists, Hindus and Christians share the country and offer an enchanting diversity of temples and cultural sites. This also makes for an extremely rich culinary culture, which is unanimously praised by visitors.

Guide to travelling in Malaysia

You’ll never be short on ideas for holidays in Malaysia. To observe the behaviour of one of the most endearing primates, take a tour of the Sepilok Orang-Utan Sanctuary. Elephants, tigers and leopards can also be found in Malaysia, notably in the Taman Negara National Park. For an unusual visit, head to the Snake Temple. Leave your worries at the door: the reptiles that live here are harmless and you can even hold them in your hands. Another essential part of your trip to Malaysia is the astonishing cuisine. The product of a melting pot of Southeast Asian cultures, the cuisine sold at every street corner is rich and varied, inspired by Chinese, Thai, Indian and even Filipino dishes. It’s therefore difficult to name a national dish, but don’t miss the char-kuey-teow or the nasi-goring, the cendol, the coconut balls or even the durian. These dishes and desserts are served at food courts worthy of the name, sorts of giant markets dedicated to dining.

When to go in Malaysia?

You can go to Malaysia all year long because the rainy season is not particularly marked. However, there is a more pronounced monsoon period in the east of the country between November and January. And, if you can, you should avoid July and August when there are lots of tourists.
