Top Holiday Destinations in Malaysia

The equatorial climate of Malaysia makes it a famed tourist destination, for visitors from all across the globe. Escaping to this tropical paradise, holiday goers can expect to experience everything from the lush tropical jungle of Borneo to the laidback beaches of Langkawi. The adventurous will be kept entertained by the range of adrenaline pumping activities on offer, whilst the romantics will love the breathtaking views and relaxed vibe of a Malaysian holiday. So, whether you’re looking for the adventure of a lifetime or are in desperate need of some rest and relaxation, Malaysia is the perfect holiday destination.

Kuala Lumpur The capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is where the journey begins, for most travellers to this country. Like many Asian cities, Kuala Lumpur incorporates the old with the new, offering vibrant city surrounds enclosed by traditional aspects of the country. The Petronas Twin Towers are a must visit tourist attraction, offering spectacular views of the city skyline, while the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) offers a range of great attractions, including some of the best shopping precincts in the world.

Cameron Highlands
Situated further north of Kuala Lumpur, visitors can indulge themselves in the lush surrounds of the Cameron Highlands. One of the most popular Malaysian attractions, the Cameron Highlands offers a tranquil and serene getaway. While this area of the Malaysia Peninsula is breathtaking, most visitors are content with seeing the Cameron Highlands during a day trip, rather than an extended stay. Situated close to halfway between Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi, many holidaymakers choose to take an inland stopover to experience this unforgettable scenery.

One of the most famed islands, throughout all of Malaysia, Langkawi is truly a sight to be seen. Boasting the most magnificent sunsets in the country, visitors will not be disappointed by the spectacular scenery on display. If you can drag yourself away from the sandy beaches for just one day, you must experience the wonders of the Kilim Nature Park, best seen on-board a Kilim River Cruise. The 99 islands that make up Langkawi provide an endless array of activities for travellers, from relaxing cruises to water sports and everything in between. Langkawi holiday deals provide one of the best options for making the most of your money, often combining your accommodation, transfers and tours into one package.

The home of all things lush and pristine in Malaysia, Borneo is truly a spectacular display of the rainforest and wildlife throughout Asia. The tallest mountain in Borneo, Mount Kinabalu is one of the most infamous attractions throughout all of Malaysia; and even Asia. Nature lovers will be captivated by Mount Kinabalu and the surrounding areas of Borneo, with more than 1000 identified species calling the region home.

Whether your idea of the perfect holiday is exploring the wonders of the rainforest or lazing on lush sandy beaches, you’ll find it all throughout the magical destinations of Malaysia.
