Find cheap flights to Malaysia with TravelSupermarket and visit an Asian nation packed full of excitement...


The fascinating South-East Asian nation of Malaysia is a popular stop-off point for backpacking Brits and a thriving business destination, while its islands and beaches attract families and couples looking for a tropical getaway. 

The nation is split across two landmasses: Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia. Peninsular Malaysia is located between Thailand and Singapore, while East Malaysia can be found across the South China Sea on the island of Borneo. It shares the island with Brunei and part of Indonesia. Most of Malaysia's population live on the Peninsular, while Malaysian Borneo is a mountainous land dotted with rainforests. It's a haven for wildlife, most notably orang-utans. 

Malaysia is a safe and pleasant introduction to Asia and a great destination for first-time visitors. 

Travelling between the UK and Malaysia, flights typically take around 12 to 13 hours with one stop along the way. 

There are four main gateways to Peninsular Malaysia for travelling Brits: Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL), which serves the capital city and the Genting Highlands; Penang International Airport (PEN), for holidays on the fascinating north-west island of Penang; Senai International Airport (JHB), close to southern Johor Bahru and ideal for breaks split between Malaysia and Singapore; and Langkawi International Airport (LGK), which is located on the beach-circled island of Langkawi in the north-west. 

Travelling around Peninsular Malaysia is easy and cheap thanks to an excellent network of public transportation. This makes it simple to combine more than one destination during your Malaysia break. Plus you can travel overland and cross the borders into Singapore in the south or Thailand in the north. 

The main airports serving East Malaysia include Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI), in the northern part of the island and serving the state of Sabah; Miri International Airport (MYY), which is in Sarawak and located midway along the coast; and Kuching International Airport (KCH), also in Sarawak though much further south and west. 

It's generally hot, humid and wet at any time of the year, wherever you travel in Malaysia. Find your flight to Malaysia with the search tool on TravelSupermarket.
