Traveling the length of the country is particularly easy due to the efficient North-South Expressway. In addition, there are a number of other modern highways which connect towns and villages throughout the country.
A self-drive here is ideal for the frequent rest stops it affords, while traveling on the older roads allows the opportunity to stop at local villages and roadside stalls where children sell seasonal fruits fresh from their family farms. Away from the expressways roads also tend to be quiet and easy to navigate.
Finally, rental cars for your self-drive vacation in Malaysia are of good quality and the road maps are some of the best in Southeast Asia.
