Travel tips for your next vacation to Malaysia – The complete holiday package in Asia

Malaysia has everything to offer. Amazing food, landscapes, beautiful islands and rich culture are layers of the country's allure. If Malaysia is your next destination, you need to know a few things.


What to wear

Malaysia is located close to the equator, and so it has a tropical climate. If you are to survive the heat, you need to take some light clothes with you. The highlands are chilly, but not chilly enough for you to need warm clothes. One thing you need to keep in mind when choosing clothes for your Malaysian trip is that it is a conservative country. So, you need clothes that are not too revealing, and if you are planning to visit a house of religion, you need a scarf, a pant or a long skirt.



Getting around is fairly easy, the cities are well-connected, and there are plenty of taxis, buses and trains. If you are in Kuala Lumpur, your main point of departure is KL Central Station. Trains and buses are the cheapest modes of transport, but getting a taxi makes sense if you want a comfortable journey; taxis aren't metered, so you need to discuss the fare details with the driver before getting in.



You should book your accommodation before arriving in the country. You won't be facing any difficulties when looking for a Sepang hotel, the country is becoming a fully-fledged tourist destination, and the likes of Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort overlook the accommodation sector. However, you need to consider what your travel plans are before selecting a hotel.


Sample street food

Malaysia is a haven of food, like every other country in Asia, there's a huge street food scene in Malaysia. All the dishes are super cheap and delicious, so you won't have to spend a lot of money on food. While you can find street food anywhere in the country, Kuala Lumpur offers the best of the best. During your stay in Malaysia, make sure you sample the delights of rojak, koay and apom balik.


Spend some time in Kuala Lumpur

The capital of Malaysia doesn't seem to run out of its energy. It's vibrant, energetic, and tourists are mesmerised by what they see. This is the ultimate shopping paradise and the best place to experience Malaysia's nightlife. Kuala Lumpur is where you find Petronas Towers, which is something that demonstrates the country's financial capacity.



Divers are in love with this Malaysian archipelago. With 100 islands and charming beaches, Langkawi has everything that's tropical-holiday related, but it also has a lovely mountainous landscape.


Visit the cultural melting pot, Johor Bahru

This is where you witness Malaysia's cultural diversity at its best. You find both mosques and temples and various ethnicities with different cultural and religious beliefs. Johor Bahru is also home to the country's first international theme park, Legoland.


Learn a few phrases of the local language

You can get by without having to speak the local language, but it's better if you learn a few phrases. For instance, if you walk into a local store planning to buy something, you need to be able to ask the price in Malay. The vendors don't speak English, and if it's a case where you need to haggle, you won't be able to do that in English.


Local events and festivals

Malaysia has a rich culture, and there are cultural and religious events happening throughout the year. Visiting the country when festivities are at large is the best way you can get a feel of what it is like to live in Malaysia.
