Malaysia entices visitors with its sunny sandy beaches and steamy rainforests, jaw-dropping skyscrapers and stilt dwellings, as well as its myriad contrasts and gastronomical delights.
The weather is hot and humid all year, but you should plan your vacation to escape the worst of the monsoon rains.
Getting about is simple, and there are several modes of transportation available (but don’t expect to walk between places in Kuala Lumpur – cabs are inexpensive and frequent).
Malaysia is divided into two regions: Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo, and both include deep rainforest. Its ancient rainforests sustain an incredible diversity of animals, some of which is threatened with extinction owing to habitat destruction.
