If you’re looking for a country that has it all, then Malaysia could well be the one for you.

With Kuala Lumpur, a much underrated city in my opinion, at the bustling heart of this country, a few days to kick off your adventure here is a great thing.

After that, choose from amazing coastal destinations such as the Perhentian Islands for scuba diving and remote beachy charm, Borneo for epic wildlife and rainforest vibes, Cameron Highlands for peaceful, hilltop tea plantations or Penang for street art and epic food.

And that’s not forgetting the historic and cultural vibes of Malacca or the lazy, hammock swinging days of Langkawi.

Honestly, Malaysia boasts it all and, with a range of climates and geographies, it’s possible that, at any time of year, you’re likely to find somewhere there with sunshine!

Malaysia is also easy to get to, with Kuala Lumpur boasting a major international airport and easy overland crossings from Thailand too in the north or Singapore in the south.

And this makes Malaysia a truly great overall package and definitely one of my favourite countries in the Southeast Asia region.

So if you have a 2 week window (or longer) for an epic trip, then Malaysia comes highly recommended.
