Quick destination guide


If you're planning on holidaying in Malaysia you won't need a visa for up to 3 months but if you intend to travel there for business or study then you'll need one. Learn More

When to go

Generally from March through to early October is the best time to visit since it is less humid and you can avoid some of the wettest months. Many festivals take place during January and February such as Chinese New Year. Learn More


The healthcare facilities in Malaysia's major cities are quite good but can be more scarce in rural areas. Smoke haze levels in parts of the country can be quite high due to forest fires in the region and it is recommended to monitor the areas you intend to visit. Learn More
