Mangrove River Cruise

Head away from the busy metropolis and embark on a mangrove river cruise. If you're staying at a Sepang hotel, be sure to check whether a river cruise is offered or can be organized by the property. Some hotels offer a range of mangrove river cruises that start from half a day tours to two-day tours; both of which give you plenty of time to explore the lush mangroves of Langkawi. Once you set on your cruise, you'll be able to discover the hidden beauty of Malaysia. Marked as a UNESCO Geopark, the mangroves play a significant role in protecting the Malaysia' coastal line. Rich in flora and fauna, some of the incredible inhabitants around the mangrove forests include large monitor lizards, crabs, kingfishers, storks, otters, long tailed macaques and even crocodiles! While on your cruise, you can visit the popular crocodile cave, a fish farm and a bat cave.

Batu Caves

Speaking of bat caves, the Batu Caves are about a 1-hour drive from Sepang and is a must visit when you're visiting Malaysia. Batu Caves is a 100-year-old temple dedicated to honouring Hindu gods and serves as an important landmark for Hindus. Once you ascend a total of 272 stairs, you'll be able to see many statues and idols dedicated to each of the gods. When visiting, remember to dress modestly as this is a sacred site. Entrance to Batu Caves is completely free and they are open from 9 am to 5 pm.

Beaches

Malaysia, you might already be aware, is a tropical country where 70% of the climate is usually hot and humid. The best way to beat the heat is to head down to the golden beaches along the coast. If you choose to stay at a beach side resort such as AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort, you'll be located right on the beach! As most resorts along the coast offer a range of water sports, rest assured that you'll always have something to do while you're in Sepang.
