Travel Guide For Malaysia

Malaysia is one of the most beautiful and culture-rich countries in Southeast Asia. Just picture this: gorgeous beaches, ancient temples and superb rainforests.

Although it’s extremely hard to name just a few, I’ll do my best – some of the best places to visit in Malaysia include the world-famous Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, the heavenly Langkawi and Penang Islands and the historical Malacca.

The national language of Malaysia is Malay, but it’s not uncommon to hear locals speak English, Tamil or Mandarin on the streets of this country.

The best time to visit Malaysia is, usually, between December to February (Western Coast) and May to September (Eastern coast).

Good news! You don’t need a visa for Malaysia if you are staying for less than 90 days.

No vaccines are officially required for entering Malaysia. However, for your own health and safety, the following are recommended: Tetanus, Hepatitis A and Typhoid (4-6 weeks before going).

It’s so easy (and totally recommended!) to get a prepaid SIM card upon your arrival in Malaysia, right at the airport. There are more than 4 companies to choose from, with Maxis or Celcom being two of the best choices.

I’m a travel enthusiast, content creator and sun seeker extraordinaire! I love a good matcha latte, am obsessed with hats and like to give human names to the stray animals that I befriend on my travels ( I’m talking about you, Lesley!) In 2018 I took the leap and switched my London lifestyle for continuous adventures abroad.
