Malaysia holidays provide the perfect combination of lively cities, world-class beaches, tranquil islands and stunning national parks to be explored.
The bright lights and colossal modern malls and skyscrapers will be sure to lure you into the city life of capital Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia’s most famous landmark, the Petronas Towers, is located here. The tallest twin towers in the world are a great place to start your Malaysian adventure, with the skywalk giving stunning views across the city, providing a real sense of the magic below.
KLCC Park, below the Petronas Towers, is a great place to escape the mad rush of the city for an afternoon, while family holidays in Malaysia wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, located just out of Kuala Lumpur.
But it’s not all modern trends and megaplexes, there’s plenty of culture too. Kuala Lumpur’s oldest Hindu temple, Sri Mahamariamman, is fantastic for architecture and history enthusiasts, while the National Museum is not only interesting on the inside but is a stunning sight from the outside too.
Food lovers are also in for a treat. Head to Alor Street after dark for a culinary carnival, with hordes of stalls packed with authentic, mouth-watering local dishes.
Those looking for beach holidays in Malaysia won’t be disappointed either. Langkawi, an island off the north-west coast, is truly spectacular and has something for all budgets. So, whether couples are splashing out on a honeymoon or backpackers are looking for a bit of chill time, the soft white sand of Langkawi can accommodate.
Alternatively, head to Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park – a collection of five islands, each with jaw-dropping beaches, turquoise waters and great opportunities for scuba diving among the diverse and beautiful marine life.
Further outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed at Taman Negara National Park in Pahang, which boasts the world’s longest rope walkway, stretching an incredible 530 metres among the treetops. The rainforest is also fantastic for keen hikers of all abilities, as it presents a 100km circular route for the hardy, alongside many shorter, less challenging options too. Wildlife enthusiasts will also love spotting the diverse array of animals here, including hornbills, water buffalos, monkeys, tapirs, woodpeckers and sun bears.
