Planning a Trip to Malaysia?

Here are some of the most interesting activities in Malaysia:

Beach Holidays & Diving Trips

diving - M-VisionMalaysia has dozens of tiny islands on both the east and west coast, some with stunning beaches that rival other world renowned locations. The fact that it is relatively unknown just adds to the advantage that it is cheaper, less crowded and more unspoiled.

Apart from the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia facing rainy days from November and March due to North East monsoon, you can experience fun in the sun, beachcombing and beach-hopping adventures elsewhere practically year round.

East Cost of Peninsular Malaysia

redang - M-VisionMonsoon-months aside, the east coast is still the top spot to catch some rays for the locals. From Kuala Lumpur (KL) – it’s cheap and easy to reach by plane on one of the country’s budget airlines, even for just a long weekend.

Redang Island and the Perhentian Islands are almost desolate except for the resorts that operate so you pretty much have the whole place to yourself. The water is crystal clear, the beaches are powdery soft and blindingly white. Redang, the more established island, is well known as a turtle sanctuary. They usually lay their eggs on Turtle Beach on the north of the island.

tioman - M-Vision

Perhentian Islands is very popular with budget travelers and has a wide variety of beach huts right on the shore, for just the right price. A favorite for diving and snorkeling, the Perhentians are a great place to earn your scuba diving certificate.

Tioman Island is part of Malaysia’s protected marine park islands and is a snorkeling and divers paradise. The coral reefs and sightings of colorful tropical fish are within easy reach of the shore. There is choice of a resort, budget-friendly hotels and chalets all around this popular island.

West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia

langkawi - M-VisionLangkawi Island is duty free and the most touristy and lively island on the west coast. Although the beaches aren’t quite as beautiful as those on the east coast, there is a much wider variety of hotels, restaurants, and shops on this tourist hot spot. The added advantage is its availability all year round as it doesn’t get direct hit by monsoon rains.

The island’s topography and interesting geological formations make it especially attractive for more active travelers. There is the hike up to the Seven Wells (waterfalls) on the north of the island and the beautiful cable car ride up to the top of the highest mountain on Langkawi which provides breathtaking views of the ocean and nearby islands. Langkawi is also home to the most luxurious hotels Malaysia has to offer, great for a weekend of pampering.

Borneo – Sabah

Sipadan Island, on the east coast of Sabah, is one of the top dive spots in the world, by far the best in Malaysia. The underwater world is amazing with common sightings of barracuda, manta rays, sharks and even greenback and hawksbill turtles.

Nearer Kota Kinabalu, the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park is a group of five islands within half and hour by speedboat from Kota Kinabalu. As a protected Marine Park, it has managed to preserve its array of coral reefs. As the waters are not too deep, diving lessons and certification are offered year round.

sipadan M-VisionThe islands namely Pulau Manukan, Pulau Gaya, Pulau Sapi, Pulau Mamutik and Pulau Sulug are all fairly small with good beaches and lush rainforests.

A short distance from Kota Kinabalu is the Tanjung Aru Beach. It is pristine with picturesque lines of casuarinas trees and a popular stretch to catch the sunset.

Another beautiful stretch of beach can be found at the Kudat Peninsula near Kudat town where the crystal clear water is shallow and safe for paddling.

Borneo – Sarawak

Located about 90 km from Kuching are the pristine beaches of Siar, Semantan, Penyok and Bandung, ideal for swimming and sunbathing.

Just a 30 minute boat ride away from the Damai Beach is the Sataswimming M-Visionng Besar and Satang Kecil islands, sanctuaries for green turtles. Day trips can be made to Satang Besar Island with the permission of the Talang-Satang National Park office.

On the northernmost corner of Sarawak, the long stretches of beaches in Miri are a popular weekend getaway. The Luak Bay and Hawaii Beach are among the well-known shores in Miri.

Some of the best beaches in Sarawak can be found within the State’s national Parks. This includes the beautiful beaches and vibrant coral life in Tanjung Datu National Park and the golden sandy beaches of Similajau National Park.

Golfing

Golfers should note that Malaysia was selected as the Golf destination of the year 2008 for Asia and Australasia by the International Association of Golf Tour Operator (IAGTO) and it is not difficult to appreciate why this is so.

With over 200 golf courses around the country and a wide choice of world class designed turfs, Malaysia is a safe bet as the “golfers’ paradise”. The choice of scenic and challenging golf courses can be exhilarating for amateurs and professional golfers alike. Playing golf year round is possible in mostly mild tropical weather at 27’C and this makes it easy for golfers to stride the turfs.

golfing M-VisionGetting the feel of playing on courses where prestigious PGA tournaments were held is within reach as a number of Malaysian clubs open their doors to visiting players. Top facilities from caddies, buggies to well run clubhouses are made available.More importantly, the average cost to play golf in Malaysia is approximately 30 to 40 percent cheaper than most Asian nations. For instance, the average green fee is RM85 to RM119. Shopping for golf accessories can be a bonus as golf accessories are duty free in Malaysia.

Honeymoons & Weddings

For many years, couples have chosen Malaysia for their once in a lifetime honeymoon escapade. As a honeymoon destination, Malaysia does not disappoint.

honeymoon M-VisionIf there is one location that conjures images of a honeymoon getaway, it has to be Langkawi. Because of huge expanse of space, nooks and cranny of caves and grottos, the island offers opportunities for honeymoon couples to spend desolate and alone time and yet, have modern facilities and creature comforts close at hand.

The fairytale like experience is exemplified with the legends and folklores that accompany the island. For instance, a visit to Tasik Dayang Bunting will reveal that this was the favorite bathing pool of a celestial princess named Mambang Sari and final resting place of her child. Some believe she blessed the waters so that any childless maiden who bathed in the lake would conceive thereafter.

Langkawi is also scenic location for weddings and related nuptial events hence. More recently, some resorts around Langkawi have created and offered complete packages for wedding and honeymoon experiences. Penang is another favourite destination, thanks to its leisurely pace. The food, cultural heritage and its multiracial people are the main attractions.

Kuala Lumpur is the city where nightlife is comparable to none in other in Malaysia. A candlelight dinner at the revolving restaurant on KL Tower completes the honeymoon experience.
