Why go to Malaysia

Malaysia is a land of contrasts: Here you can discover unspoiled nature with rainforests and impressive wildlife on round trips alongside skyscrapers. Malaysia consists of two parts of the country separated by the South China Sea: the offshore West Island borders Thailand in the north, the East Island shares its entire southern border with Indonesia. The two islands are about 700 km away from each other and lie between the Indian and ... Malaysia is a land of contrasts: Here you can discover unspoiled nature with rainforests and impressive wildlife on round trips alongside skyscrapers. Malaysia consists of two parts of the country separated by the South China Sea: the offshore West Island borders Thailand in the north, the East Island shares its entire southern border with Indonesia. The two islands are about 700 km apart and lie between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. This dual geography is a Malaysian peculiarity that can of course be found in all areas: Malaysia has two cultural facets. The economically very active capital Kuala Lumpur on the one hand is an energetic metropolis of millions with numerous skyscrapers, the most famous of which are the twin towers Petronas Towers and a typical Chinese quarter. The other side, on the other hand, is formed by countless paradisiacal islands, tropical beaches, small fishing villages and an exotic world of animals. Malaysia is also a colorful mix of different cultures and religions. Muslims, Buddhists, Taoists, Hindus and Christians live here in one room and offer travelers a rich variety of religious places of worship to visit. To the great delight of travelers, this mix inevitably also results in a varied gastronomy. See more

It was a very nice tour through Borneo, the food was always very good, what Europeans miss is a little sausage and cheese for breakfast.

We started our trip in the sensational Kuala Lumpur (2 nights) with a city tour with Krishna and our driver Dave. Via the Batu Caves we went to the Taman Negara (2 nights) - ATTENTION the Conopy Walk was already closed for a few months in September 2019 - and on to the Cameron Highlands (2 nights). On the way to Pegnang we had the opportunity to visit the orangutans in Bukit Merah - Semanggol. Penang (2 nights) with city tour. Finally, we took a domestic flight to Langkawi for our last 10 days beach holiday. I already knew in advance that the ***** resort in the north would be too boring for us for 10 days, but it is a wonderful place to digest the impressions of the last few days. You can also walk to the waterfalls and the cable car from here. Just when we got bored we changed the hotel and spent the last few days on the beach of Tengah (***** Tengah). After 3 weeks we returned to KL by domestic flight.

Prepare your Malaysia trip

Malaysia is in South East Asia and extends from parts of the Malay Peninsula to Borneo. This eclectic state was created by Chinese, Indian and even European cultures shaped and today represents a unique cultural mix. The island of Borneo offers authentic rainforests with animals of all kinds. If you long for city life, the capital Kuala Lumpur is the perfect place for it: Here you will find colonial buildings, lively shopping streets and the famous twin towers Petronas Towers.

When is the best time to travel to Malaysia?

Malaysia is all year round humid, but because of the short, cooling downpours, it is quite pleasant to travel. The temperatures fluctuate little. The west of Malaysia can therefore be traveled well all year round. The months from December to February and June to August are considered the best travel time. For East Malaysia including Borneo and the east coast of the Peninsula Malaysia, March to October is a good time to travel. December is not recommended because then very heavy rain is to be expected.
