Malaysia Regions

To know Malaysia is to love Malaysia – a bubbling, bustling melting-pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese, and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. One of Malaysia’s key attractions is its extreme contrasts which further add to this theme of ‘diversity’. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts while five-star hotels sit just meters away from ancient reefs. Cool highland hideaways roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves. Situated between one and seven degrees north of the Equator, Malaysia enjoys mostly balmy weather all year round. The wet northeast monsoon blows from November to March, along the East Coast of the Peninsular as well as Sarawak and Sabah. Even during this season, there are periods of fine weather and smooth seas. The southwest monsoon blows from April to October. Generally, westbound yachters travel during the northeast monsoon and those travelling east, during the southwest. The East Coast is much quieter with many islands offering excellent places to moor, relax, scuba dive and stock up on essential requirements. East Malaysia is becoming increasingly popular for yachting and as a stopover for boaters from distant shores.

Langkawi

Langkawi is an archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast. Surrounded by turquoise sea, the interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills. If you’re intent on carting off duty-free alcohol, cigarettes, and chocolate, then this is the place to be. Still, nature lovers will find the island just as agreeable as the shoreline is fringed by powder-fine sand and swaying coconut trees. The island is especially recognized for its excellent diving opportunities and this tropical gem hides a treasure trove of other exciting holiday opportunities. From the expansive Underwater World Langkawi along Pantai Cenang to the soaring Cable Car in Pantai Kok, Langkawi is an electrifying locale that keeps visitors coming back for more.
