Best Things to Do in Malaysia - Top Activities to Enjoy in Malaysia

As one of Asia's most popular holiday hotspots, Malaysia is a tourist Mecca for the masses. Here are some of the top things to do during a holiday in the country.


Shop in Kuala Lumpur

Tipped to be among Asia's top retail heartlands, Kuala Lumpur is not only the nation's capital but also a shopaholic's dream destination. Lined with towering department stores and shopping malls that are the envy of the region one of the must-shop hotspots in Kuala Lumpur is The Pavilion Mall which is spread out over a whopping 1.4 million square feet. Suria KLCC is another not to miss highlight for brand conscious shoppers while the Mid Valley Megamall and The Gardens Mall are equally impressive luxury retail hubs in the capital along with Starhill Gallery which is best known for its designer wear.


Tour KL Bird Park

As one of the main attractions for nature lovers holidaying in Kuala Lumpur, KL Bird Park is a one of a kind bird watching spot for the masses. Home to hundreds of winged beauties, this centrally located wildlife sanctuary offers guests a comprehensive look at the bird species endemic to Malaysia as well as a host of migratory birds. Leafy and spacious, an afternoon at the KL Bird Park is the perfect wind down zone after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping in the capital.


Beach Getaway in Langkawi

If Malaysia had its own incarnation of Koh Samui or Pattaya, then it is surely the beach laden landscapes of Langkawi. Offering beach lovers a plethora of white, sandy beaches that defy belief, the sheer beauty of the coastal terrains of this stunning resort haven makes it one of Malaysia's best-kept secrets. Sample seafood cuisine while enjoying a host of water sports activities or simply working on one's tan in this paradise hideaway few tourists take the time to discover.


Take a Trip Back in Time in Malacca

One could be forgiven for believing that The State of Malacca is a country unto itself due to the diversity of its culture and the obvious difference between other regions of Malaysia. The main city of Malacca is not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site but a place lost in the annals of time with colonial structures and gorgeous beaches lining its confines. Home to the famous Famosa Fort and St. Paul's Church, the cuisine in this part of Malaysia is also decidedly different. Don't forget to go shopping in the Jonker Street Night Market where local delicacies and souvenirs are sold side by side.


Pay Homage to the Batu Caves

The iconic golden statue of Lord Murugan is one those heading to Malaysia will see in travel guides the world over and none should miss out on the chance to witness the magnificence of this Hindu Temple in the hills with their own eyes. Located within an easy distance of Kuala Lumpur, visitors can marvel at the staggering scale of this larger than life sculpture and the shrine which is located in a natural cave surrounded by tropical foliage.



The capital of Sarawak is another hidden gem in Malaysia which is located on Borneo Island. Visitors based at Citadines Uplands Kuching or any other similar place to stay in Kuching will have access to The Astana palace and the Talang- Satang National Park.
