50 things you need to know about travel in Malaysia

  • Adel

    Great post, thank you for the valuable information ! I’m planning to visit Malaysia next month, and I’m wondering what is the best way to go from Kuala Lumpur to Perhentian Islands, then to Langkawi and finally back to Kuala Lumpur, what do you recommend?

    • Hello, we have roughly done that, but also included Taman Negara and Penang. You can easily do KL-Besut-Kuala Perlis-KL
      From Besut and Kuala Perlis you just need to take the boat to the Perhentians and Langkawi respectively.
      Note that it will take you a full day, during each leg of the trip! Also, you can easily add Penang to the trip as there are boats from Langkawi to Penang. hope you have a nice trip and tell us how it went 🙂

    Ive been forced to live in malaysia for 7 years this country is bullshit people , please dont travel they will disrespect you and rob your money, they worship to money thats it, weather is shit, culture is shit and everywhere is dirty as hell , honestly the most hated region ive been in my lifetime is Malaysia and the people are far from humanity.

    • We are sorry that your experience was bad. We know that being a tourist and living in a country are two distinct experiences. We liked Malaysia, but it was from a tourist perspective.

  • Really extensive guide! Thanks for covering almost any aspect of traveling to Malaysia (for real, I’ve learned everything I need to know about this country from your guide).

    • Thank you. We are very happy that you found the guide useful 🙂 We are making this kind of guide to every country we visit now 🙂

    Correction
    Malaysia is not an Islamic country. Malaysia is a secular country where Islam is the official religion and others are free to practise their own religion.

    Wow those are some useful tidbits. Good to know in advance about the alcohol in restaurants! incidentally they’re looking for a marketing manager to help drive tourism to Malaysia if you or your viewers are interested in actually working and spending more time there https://www.internationality.me/opportunties/regions/asia/drive-tourism-in-malaysia/
