Malaysia, the best country one can travel to in Southeast Asia. The country has a unique culture, staggering natural diversity, and famous food. But there are few things you should probably know before you travel to the place as you can enjoy your time there.

As Malaysia is a diverse country, from culture to geography, one needs to research in advance, especially if you are traveling independently.


How can you get there?

Most tourists arrive in Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur. To get between destinations within Malaysia, you can also use domestic flights. Suppose you are looking to get the best flight prices for Malaysia. In that case, I always recommend checking out Skyscanner who advertises deals for international and domestic flights, including those operated by low-cost carriers.

Best time to visit and for how long?

November to February is the best time to visit the west coast of Peninsula Malaysia when it is less hot and humid. June and July are the best months for visiting the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. From October to March, you can visit Malaysian Borneo and see Orangutans.

As there are many things to do in the country, you can easily spend 2-3 weeks, and still not see everything. I would advise you to stay for 3-4 weeks if you want to enjoy jungle trekking, volcano climbing, and multiple island hopping.


Many travelers traveling from New Zealand, Australia, UK, and North America do not require visas whether they travel via air or land.
Many Southeast Asian passport holders also do not require a visa.
I received a 90-day free stamp on entry to Malaysia as a British passport holder.
