The rainforest-rich mainland is peppered with sparkling cities that are ideal for a spot of sightseeing or a satisfying shopping fix. You can head to picturesque Penang for gastronomic glory, peaceful Langkawi for pristine beaches or the seductive Borneo states for a sizzlingly sultry break in the jungle.
For accommodation, you’ll find oodles of options that are a joy to experience. Choose from tall and glittering towers offering luxury in the capital, a riverside retreat providing calm in the centre of a cat-themed city, or a nature-nestled retreat close to equatorial wildlife. With your trip to Malaysia so easily within reach, you just need to chuck your favourite holiday clothes in an overnight bag and make that short trip across the water.
