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.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
