Family accommodation options

When it comes to accommodation in Malaysia there’s lots on offer, especially for families. From beach resorts with great pools for the children to staying in a family home and experiencing real Malay hospitality. We offer four categories of accommodation and our Travel Specialists have first-hand experience to help you pick the perfect ones for your family holiday.

Getting around in Malaysia

Malaysia’s infrastructure makes travelling with a family a breeze. We offer a mix of transport; boats, trains and buses are just a few. It’s easy to mix it up throughout your holiday and keep everyone entertained with great views and the chance to meet local people along the way. During the excursions in Penang and Malacca you’ll take to two wheels as you explore the local area and sample tasty cuisine.

Peace of mind with our local partners

Rickshaw works with an English-speaking local partner in Malaysia who is available 24/7 should you need assistance at any point on holiday. By employing friendly local guides and drivers during all excursions in Malaysia we can ensure we’re helping to put money into the pockets of local people. You’ll also have the advantage of your guide’s local knowledge – why not ask them where their favourite restaurants are!
