FAQs on Malaysia tours
How long are your Malaysia tours?
Our Malaysia tours range from 13 to 17 days, ensuring you’ll enjoy around two weeks of the finest trekking and wildlife experiences the country has to offer. If you’d like to customise your trip, perhaps in the form of a tweak to the itinerary, we do have Tailor Made solutions available to help you create a unique holiday that you’ll remember forever.
When is the best time to travel to Malaysia?
Malaysia sits close to the equator, meaning temperatures are similar all year. But one aspect you will want to take into consideration when deciding on the best time to travel is the monsoon season. This takes place between September and February, but the exact time is region-dependent. During this period, you can expect heavy downpours and strong winds across some areas, often resulting in travel disruptions and cancellations.
The west coast generally sees the heaviest rainfall throughout September and October, with the other months experiencing hot and humid weather and typically short showers. The east coast also enjoys hot and sunny conditions for the majority of the year, making for ideal beach holidays, with the monsoon season hitting between November and February.
The highlands and mountains in Malaysia are consistently cooler, providing a welcome break from the often-uncomfortable conditions across the rest of the country. In general, the time of year you choose to travel on a trip to Malaysia will depend on your planned activities, the area you’re visiting and your personal preferences.
Where is the best place to travel in Malaysia?
Malaysia provides a vast range of attractions and activities for every visitor, so the best place to travel to depends on your interests. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to wildlife adventure holidays in Malaysia, with Borneo offering the chance to get up close with the region’s orangutans. This tropical paradise also boasts excellent hiking opportunities with nearby Manukan Island perfect for snorkelling and relaxing by the beach.
If you’re looking for a bigger challenge, a hike through the jungle terrain to Mount Kinabalu will take you to new heights. The Cameron Highlands, meanwhile, is a great location to experience traditional tea plantations and far-reaching views of Kuala Lumpur.
A visit to the Malaysian capital won’t disappoint foodies either. Fancy restaurants, street food markets and everything in between line the streets of this cosmopolitan city.
Whichever region you visit in this diverse country, you’re sure to discover some of the world’s most rich landscapes, fascinating wildlife and abundant nature.
Is Malaysia expensive to travel to?
While a well-organised trip to Malaysia will likely cost around £2,000 or more, it’s well worth investing to ensure you get the most out of visiting this diverse country. Once there, costs are relatively low and you’ll be able to sample the local cuisine for fairly reasonable prices. Alcohol is notoriously expensive due to the high tax, so expect to pay premium prices for beer and wine.
How many days do you need for a Malaysia trip?
Our Malaysia tours range from 12 to 15 days, ensuring you’ll enjoy around two weeks of the finest trekking and wildlife experiences the country has to offer. If you’d like to customise your trip, perhaps in the form of a tweak to the itinerary, we have tailor-made solutions available to help you create a unique holiday that you’ll remember forever.
Are your Malaysia trips guided?
Yes, all our Malaysia trips include the services of one of our expert guides. Not only will they keep you on the right track, but they’ll also know the perfect places for spotting the vast array of monkeys, birds and other beautiful beasts.
What do I need to wear on a holiday in Malaysia?
While the capital of Kuala Lumpur is considered urban and cosmopolitan, Malaysia as a whole is predominantly a Muslim country. Therefore, it’s a good idea to cover parts of the body, such as shoulders, to remain respectful.
As the weather is generally hot and humid, you’ll find casual T-shirts and shorts are the best option for taking part in activities and sightseeing. Even if you’re not travelling in the rainy season, it’s still wise to pack lightweight waterproofs so you’re prepared for any showers. Make sure you take comfortable footwear and walking shoes or boots for treks and hikes.
You might want to consider taking some smart clothing for evenings, especially if you’re planning on eating out in the capital.
