Malaysia – Best time to go

Best time to visit Malaysia

The best time to visit Malaysia depends on if you’re visiting the east or west coast. While average temperatures are a year-round 30°C, west coast islands like Langkawi and Pangkor are at their best from December to April, before the rainy season kicks in. On the east coast, including the diving hotspot of Tioman Island, April to October is peak time weather-wise. Here, the rain starts from November.
