Malaysia is one of my favourite places. It's a great place to take kids. Malaysia includes Peninsula Malaysia and Borneo Malaysia. Malaysia celebrated 50 years of independence in 2007, and is one of the rising stars of South-East Asian tourism. A vibrant mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and tribal influence have created a mix of peoples and culture that make it a colourful and intriguing place to visit. With the added bonus of some of the most wonderful flavoursome food going!
Tropical island resorts and endless white, sandy beaches offer a taste of paradise, while beneath warm coral seas, world-class dive sites await exploration. Orang-utans, turtles, the oldest rainforest in the world, city skyscrapers and majestic mosques and temples, plus a gorgeous coastline, are enough to tempt everyone.
A day trip by longboat and car from KL will get you trekking in the Taman Negara National Park, there are many clearly marked trails including a canopy walkway. The oldest rainforest in the world will not dissappoint and the kids will love their wildlife adventure.
Scuba-dive in the tropical waters off Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo and be treated to a spectacular underwater show. Or head to the Kinabantangan jungle to cruise the river spotting monkeys, elephants, hornbills and more.
Penang is an island of the east coast of mainland Malaysia. Explore historic colonial George Town, the island's capital. Penang is also famous for its hawker food. A perfect beach resort destination with everything on offer from beach horseriding, jet skiing, to fishing charters. Langkawi Island also to off the East coast is where pristine sandy beaches and snorkelling await.
The currency is the Malaysian Ringgit. Malaysia is tropical without extremely high temperatures. Days are very warm and often humid, while nights are fairly cool. The main rainy season in the east runs between November and February, while August is the wettest period on the west coast. East Malaysia has rains (November to February) in Sabah and in Sarawak. However, it is difficult to generalise about the country's climate, as rainfall differs on the east and west coasts according to the prevailing monsoon winds (northeast or southwest). Average daytime temperatures in Kuala Lumpur are around 27°C year round.
Do yourself a favour and take the kids to Malaysia, its no secret its one of my absolute favourite destinations, its so diverse, from jungles to beaches, fabulous food, beautiful resorts and friendly people. Plus once there its cheap to eat and shop. Call BYOkids today 1300 296 543 and we can arrange a perfect holiday for your family
