Bags of Tropical Beaches

Crescent swathes of sparkling white beach stretch along both of peninsular Malaysia’s coastlines, with turquoise waters and swaying coconut palms. Offshore, you’ll find a scattering of tiny tropical islands, where you can kick off your shoes, sink your toes in the sand and soak up the sunshine.

Wildlife-packed Wilderness

The wildlife is amazingly diverse, from spider monkeys to gibbons, wild elephants and exotic birds. Each of Malaysia’s islands has a tangled, lush interior criss-crossed with shady trails, so you’ll find tempting trekking wherever you are.

Jungle Trekking Adventures

Active travellers can trek through rich, green tea plantations of the northern highlands, wobble across rope bridges far up in the treetops, meet local tribes and camp in the heart of the rainforest. Amidst the dense jungles, there are natural waterfalls, springs and tiny, overgrown rivers.

Malaysia Honeymoon Paradise

With castaway beaches, hidden rainforest retreats and bags of culture, Malaysia is a honeymoon hotspot. Think sunset strolls, cocktails and beach bungalows.  Great for snorkelling and diving, explore protected coral reefs, swim with sea turtles and see all kinds of exotic sea life. At night, seafood grills are fired up along the shoreline and lamps twinkle in the moonlight, making Malaysia brilliant honeymoon territory.
