Join us on a holiday to Malaysia

Discover Malaysia, a bewitching land of beautiful beaches, captivating cities and idyllic islands, on a Newmarket Holidays escorted tour. Explore colonial hill-stations, wildlife-packed national parks and savour some delicious local dishes.

Boasting 2,905 miles of idyllic coastline and nearly 900 islands, the Southeast Asian country of Malaysia is a tropical paradise. Occupying parts of the Malay Peninsula, to the south of Thailand, and the island of Borneo, Malaysia is a unique fusion of traditional and colonial cultures, ranging from British and Indian to Arabic and Chinese.

Malaysia is home to 30 national parks, with around two-thirds of the country carpeted in dense, wildlife-packed rainforest, roamed by tigers, elephants, rhinoceroses and many other species, including orangutans, which are only found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. Kinabalu National Park, clustered around the eponymous mountain peak in Malaysian Borneo, is one of the best places to see wildlife in Malaysia, along with Taman Negara, on the Malay Peninsula. You can see orangutans at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, near Sandakan in Malaysian Borneo. Capital city Kuala Lumpur is a magnificent metropolis of towers – including the iconic twin Petronas Towers – and trees, surrounded by picturesque dense jungle. The city itself reflects the country’s eclectic cultural make-up and is home to architectural styles, including Victorian, Moorish, Mogul and Malay.

Malaysia’s diverse cultural heritage is also reflected in its glittering collection of temples and shrines, including the large golden Hindu statue at the Batu Caves Temple and the Buddhist temple at Kek Si Lok.

Malaysia FAQs

First trip to Malaysia? Here are a few questions you might have.

  • British passport holders can visit Malaysia for up to three months without a visa. You should ensure your passport is valid for at least six months from the date you enter the country.

  • Between October and March is widely considered the best time to visit Malaysia, when the skies are clear and the rainfall is minimal. That being said, Kuala Lumpur and the west of the country, on the Malay Peninsula, are hot all year round, albeit with varying levels of rainfall.

  • Prices do vary depending on which part of the country you visit. By Southeast Asian standards, Malaysia is a relatively expensive country to visit; however, by Western standards, Malaysia is considered a cheap destination.
