GO FOR: rainforests and jungle, exotic wildlife, incredible food, bustling cities and scuba diving.
Malaysia is a country of two halves: on the western peninsula you’ll find bustling cities such as Kuala Lumpur, misty tea plantations and chilled-out islands, and across the South China Sea (perfect for scuba diving) on the eastern side you’ll find Borneo: home to orang-utans, incredible birdlife, remote tribes, wild jungle and rivers teaming with life.
If food excites you then Malaysia will deliver: from Chinese-Malay ‘Nonya’ to Indian curries, Chinese buffets, Malay food stalls and Dayak cuisine, you certainly won’t go hungry.
The island of Borneo is home to many unique and endangered species, such as the orangutan, proboscis monkey, the Borneo Rhino, the Pygmy Elephant, as well as the Green and Hawsbill Turtle. More wildlife is discovered by the scientists who live and conduct research in the many national parks, rainforests, mountains and remote regions on the island. The best time to travel to Sabah, Sarawak, Kalimantan and Brunei is during the dry season, which normally starts around March or April.
We advise that you seek advice on recommended vaccinations and precautions from a health professional – either a GP, a practice nurse, a pharmacist or a travel health clinic – ideally at least eight weeks before departure. Visit NHS Fit for Travel for Malaysia specific guidance.
