From lush island jungles beside stunning beaches to the urban jungles of Kuala Lumpur and Penang, holidays in Malaysia are wildly exciting.

Shake up your holiday cocktail when you set your sights on this fascinating, welcoming and truly beautiful nation in Southeast Asia.


Like a perfectly seasoned dish swimming with spices and exotic flavours, Malaysia offers a taste of some of the world’s most vibrant cultures. Arrivals from China, India and elsewhere have shaped the history, architecture, cuisine and attitudes of Malaysia and its people, making it a great choice for first-time visitors to Asia.  

You can enjoy Malaysia holidays in Peninsular Malaysia (also known as West Malaysia) or across the South China Sea in East Malaysia.

In Peninsula Malaysia, which is located between Thailand and Singapore, the capital city of Kuala Lumpur attracts visitors to skyscraper hotels, bustling markets, sparkling shopping malls and lush open spaces. The island of Penang - the ‘Pearl of the Orient’ - is off the west coast and an ideal destination for those looking to combine city pursuits with days on the beach and trips to serene temples. Further north of Penang is the holiday island of Langkawi, home to many luxury, all inclusive Malaysia hotels.

East Malaysia, also known as Malaysian Borneo, consists of Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan. Holidays here can be taken in Kota Kinabalu, which is a great city base for adventures in the nearby national parklands.
