WHY TAKE YOUR TRIBE TO MALAYSIA?

With a unique abundance of wildlife, ancient rainforests, stunning beaches, beautiful cities and genuine culture, Malaysia offers huge variety within a single family adventure.  English is widely spoken, infrastructure is good and Malaysia's climate makes it a year-round destination.

WILDLIFE

Borneo’s orangutan is undoubtedly the main draw. There are guaranteed encounters at excellent rehabilitation centres, whilst wild sightings deep in the jungle are truly awe-inspiring. Pygmy elephants, sun bears and proboscis monkeys are just some of the animals that roam Borneo's wild interior, whilst the entire country offers world-class snorkelling amongst protected coral reefs.  Year-round turtle nesting sights all-but guarantee you can witness the first journey of a tiny baby turtle as it struggles over soft white sands to the ocean.

CITIES

Malaysia’s dynamic and culturally diverse cities are a huge draw and offer an abundance of activities for children. From Kuala Lumpur’s fabulous city park and Discovery Centre, to the cultural roller-coaster that is Penang’s George Town, each of the major cities offers something different for your Tribe to enjoy. With a noticeable emphasis on green spaces, you’re never far away from a park or garden, and a combination of excellent public transport and traditional tri-shaws (three-wheeled bicycle taxis) means accessing all areas is easy!

BEACHES 

Malaysia is blessed with some stunning beaches, most of which are easily accessible, offering safe swimming and a host of family-friendly activities.  Snorkelling, diving, kayaking, paddle-boarding and turtle spotting to name a few.  Many of the best beaches are found on tiny tropical islands, just a short boat ride from the mainland.  Their powder soft sands give way to jungle clad centres, opening up a host of alternative family activities just a sort stroll from the beach.

ISLANDS

Malaysia has hundreds of islands, many of which are tiny dots of lush tropical jungle surrounded by stunning white beaches. There's an abundance of wildlife and laid-back locals, whose daily routines have barely changed for decades. Gaya and Turtle Islands (Borneo), Pangkor Island (West coast) and the Perhentian Islands (East coast) are great examples of this.  Malaysia also boasts two island powerhouses.  With stunning beaches, oodles of culture, incredible food, wildlife rich rainforests and a host of adventurous and child-friendly activities, both Penang and Langkawi are must see destinations.

CULTURE

Malaysia is a melting pot of different identities, religions and cultures.  It celebrates its indigenous and Malay heritage, whilst embracing Chinese, Indian, Arabic and British influences. This shines through in the diversity of Malaysia's arts, music and foods. From the interactive museums in KL and George Town, to traditional homestays in the Highlands or in island jungles, what better place to teach children about embracing variety.

ACCOMMODATION

We take time and effort to find truly unique and sustainable accommodation options, that all the family can enjoy.  Children will love staying in a jungle lodge waking to the sounds of a thousand tiny animals or in a converted Chinese shop-house amongst the bustle of central George Town. All accommodation options have fantastic facilities and incredible staff, ready to cater to your family's wants and needs.

FOOD

Malaysian food is almost impossible to define, such is its diversity around the country.  Makan (meaning to eat) can happen up to seven times a day and with heavy Chinese, Indian, Arabic and Thai influences there'll always be something for every member of your Tribe to enjoy. From the breakfast favourite, akok; a deliciously sweet mix of eggs, palm sugar and coconut, to paung goreng; savoury sweet rice balls mixed with spicy fish, street-food vendors and masterful chefs can rustle up a tasty bite throughout the day.

Tropical Resort

SWIMMING

We know swimming is an essential part of any family holiday. We try to ensure that all of our accommodation options have spacious swimming pools, to allow children to enjoy their all important 'chill out' time.  Children will also love splashing around in the calm shallow waters of the island beaches or taking a dip in a natural hot spring.

WHEN TO GO

Malaysia is hot and humid year-round.  The West coast is best visited between October and April, although travel year-round is possible. Expect more frequent downpours and stronger winds, between May and September.  The East coast and Borneo enjoy better weather between March and September.  It's worth noting that monsoonal rains force the East coast to shut down from November to February.
 

Singapore's climate has little fluctuation throughout the year.  It remains hot, humid and rainy, with a chance of thunderstorms most days.  Downpours tend to be in the afternoon or early evening.
