Malaysia Regions

Malaysia’s distinct regions offer a wealth of exciting holiday experiences, from the jungles of Borneo to the beaches of Langkawi. Most travellers start or finish their holiday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s iconic capital city and the hub of its transport system. Beyond the city, discover historical Malacca, Pangkor Laut island or the scenic Cameron Highlands.

If you’re searching for Malaysian beaches, both Penang and Langkawi are popular options, or for something a little quieter, uncover Malaysia’s East Coast. For wildlife enthusiasts, there is nowhere quite like magical Borneo, famous the world-over for its adorable orangutans.
