Exploring Malaysia

Family Holidays

Malaysia is an excellent introduction to Asia for visitors of any age. Filled with beautiful beaches, temples, mosques, ancient rainforest filled with incredible flora and fauna, tea plantations, jungle, and vibrant cities pulsing with life, there’s something to please everyone. The country is safe to travel with excellent roads and a well-developed infrastructure. Communicating is easy as nearly everyone speaks English fluently in addition to Bahasa Malaya and probably one or two other languages. There’s a wide variety of food on offer and a diverse culture shaped by Malay, Indian, Chinese, and colonial influences.

Many hotels offer family sized rooms at great value and as we’ve personally visited the hotels we work with, we can recommend the ones best suited to your needs. Whether you’re looking for a beach holiday where you can see the ocean from your verandah; a cultural trip with family-friendly art, food, and tours that won’t wear out the young ones; or a chance to look for wildlife in the rainforest, we can help.

Suggested Itineraries

Suggested Places to Stay

Kuala Lumpur
Bustling, vibrant Kuala Lumpur is home to an incredible array of old and new. Colonial architecture and modern skyscrapers, gourmet restaurants and simple street food stalls, luxurious hotels and shops, beautiful parks, mosques, and temples fill the city. The city is truly a feast for all five senses. More
Melaka
The port town of Melaka (formerly spelled Malacca) has been influenced by Portuguese, Dutch, British, Chinese, Indian, and Malay settlers and rulers. The resulting mix of culture, food, and architecture makes Melaka an ideal spot to see, taste, and experience the diversity that makes Malaysia such a unique part of Asia. Although you can visit in a day from Kuala Lumpur, we think it's worth an overnight visit. More
George Town
On the island of Penang sits the UNESCO-designated cultural highlight of George Town. It's home to some of the best food in the country, street art fun for all ages to find and enjoy, Chinese and Indian temples, British colonial buildings, pleasant beaches, a hill with stunning views of the area, and delightful boutique hotels. George Town truly offers a wealth of options for every visitor. More
Langkawi
Formally known as Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah, the island boasts beaches, rainforest, monkeys, mangroves, and views to Thailand from an incredible hanging bridge atop Mount Mat. More
Cameron Highlands
Once the favoured hill station of British expatriates in Malaysia, the Cameron Highlands is a cool respite from the tropical heat. Tea plantations, giant rafflesia blooms, and a mossy forest that feels straight out of a story book can all be found here. More
Tioman Island
Well known to divers, Tioman is home to incredibly rich waters teeming with life, making for great snorkelling and diving. With beautiful beaches and pleasant walking trails through the jungle, it's a beautiful place to relax. Best visited March through mid-October as we don't recommend trying to reach the island during monsoon season. More
Perhentian Islands
The clear aquamarine South China Sea meets white sand beaches on the Perhentian and Redang islands. There are no roads on these islands, only foot paths and water taxis. We only recommend visiting between April and mid-October to avoid rough crossings and restaurants and resorts closed for monsoon season. More
