Learn about the must-do things to try while in Malaysia.


Things to do in Malaysia

1MalaysiaBorne

Explore the rainforests of Borneo

Borneo is a Malaysian island shared with Brunei and is home to an ancient and biodiverse rainforest. It’s famous for its beaches and is an excellent place to see orangutans and clouded leopards.

Not to mention great diving is just off the coast. Mount Kinabalu is a popular mountain to climb at 4,095 metres high.


2MalaysiaPenang

Eat up in Penang

Penang is a part of the mainland but also includes an island where popular George Town is located.

Penang brings together the country’s cultural influences in markets that show off Asia’s old world. Discover the highlights of George Town, tour around Penang Island and try the local cuisine.


3MalaysiaLangkawi

Hop across to the island paradise of Langkawi

Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah, draws visitors with its many beautiful beaches, rich flora and fauna, and cheap shopping.

Driving around the island, you’ll spot rolling rice terraces and small villages.

Try the cable car up to Mount Mat Cincang, visit caves, go trekking through the rainforest and relax at the hot springs.


4MalaysiaLegoLand

Be a kid in Legoland

Experience Malaysia’s first international theme park, Legoland.

Inside, you’ll find creations like Angkor Wat from Cambodia made out of Lego as well as over 40 rides and attractions.

When you’re tired of rides, you can make your way to the world’s largest Legoland water park.


5MalaysiaGardens

Take a break in the city gardens

Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the Lake Gardens is a nice break from the city. The 91.6 hectares of gardens surround an artificial lake with paths for runners and walkers.

You can find playgrounds, a bird park with over 3000 birds, a butterfly park and cafes inside the gardens.


6MalaysiaBeaches

Stretch out on pristine beaches

Malaysia boasts many white sand beaches that have ideal snorkelling off the coast. In Malaysia, you’ll find a wide variety of beaches that will be busy with tourists or beaches that you can have almost all to yourself.

One such island is Redang. It’s one of the most expensive islands in Malaysia, but boasts the least amount of people.

The Perhentian Islands are great for budget travellers looking for unspoiled beaches. Langkawi has more touristy beaches but also offers shops and dining along the beaches.


7MalaysiaFootball

Catch a football game

Watch the Malaysia National Football Team play in Kuala Lumpur at the FIFA-match authorised Bukit Jalil National Stadium.

The team goes by the nickname Harimau Malaya in a reference to the Malayan tiger.


8MalaysiaThemeParks

Keep the little ones entertained at a local theme park

Legoland isn’t the only theme park in Malaysia. There are plenty of opportunities for every traveller. Sunway Lagoon is divided into five sections from scary rides to water slides.

Genting Highlands is more family oriented and is the first indoor theme park in the world. Lost World Tambun includes an adventure park and animal-themed areas. Plus there are more theme parks like Hello Kitty and Escape Theme Park Penang.


9MalaysiaShopping

Go shopping

Shopping is a favourite hobby for many locals, so the streets of Malaysia are full of stalls, boutiques and malls. In Kuala Lumpur alone, there are 20 malls ranging from high designer end stores to electronics and budget-friendly shops.

Malaysia has Mega Sales twice a year around Christmas and in August for Merdeka (Independence Day).

These sales usually last two months and can include discounts of up to 90%. There are also markets with tours available from a local.


9BatuCavesMalaysia

Explore the unique Batu Caves

The Batu Caves are in a large limestone hill located outside Kuala Lumpur.

Climb the 272 steps, passing macaque monkeys on your way to the 42-metre-high gold-painted statue of the Hindu god Murugan.

The cathedral cave is the largest and is filled with altars.
