Skybridge on the island of Langkawi

Places to visit in Malaysia

From the fertile highlands down to soft-sand beaches, there’s plenty to explore on Peninsular Malaysia. Our specialists can recommend where to go in Malaysia, including the bustling streets of Kuala Lumpur and the neat tea plantations of the Cameron Highlands.

The UNESCO World Heritage cities of Malacca and George Town on the island of Penang recall Malaysia’s role as a trading port in their colonial architecture and traditional shophouses.

You can boat through one of the oldest rainforests in the world, Taman Negara National Park, or follow jungle trails in the Belum Rainforest that borders Thailand. Along the coast, Tioman Island is an ideal base for snorkeling and diving, while the archipelago of Langkawi shelters secluded beaches. We can suggest what to see in Malaysia based on your interests, and create a tailor-made itinerary to fit.
