Malaysia is a very diverse and interesting county, such is its diversity that it will please any type of traveler that ventures into its lands.

 

Anyone who travels there will be able to enjoy its impressive cities, its endless jungles, the opportunity to see orangutans in their natural habit in the Malaysian part of the Borneo, its beautiful beaches and islands, its very different culture, and its monuments and landscapes.

The Time for Traveling

A good thing for travelers that want to visit Malaysia is that in every moment there is a part of the country that it’s in the ideal weather and temperature. The best moment to visit the south coast (Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, Penang, and Langkawi) is between November and March, while the best moment to visit the east coast (which has the beautiful beaches of Perhentian, Tioman, Kapas) is between April and October.

Money

The currency of Malaysia is the ringgit/ Malaysian dollar (1 ringgit=0,21 €).

Language 

The official language of Malaysia is Malay even though most citizens speak a second language or two. As Malaysia was a British colony, English is also very extended.

Passport

No special visa is needed. A visa will be given to you when arriving. If you are a citizen of the European Union, this visa will allow you to stay at most for 90 days.
