New York City
Been there, not done that.
where did you go?
well malaysia is in its best wheater during december and january…not that much Hot and little rain you will find frequenty :-)
to answer the question is depend on what you are looking for in Malaysia.
- if you want to go shop well malaysia is one of the shopping heaven in asia. you can go to Jalan Bukin Bintang..lots of shopping area there where you can find so many things from the cheapest to the highest price :-)silk, fabrics, electronics, and mostly garment…dont forger to try the indian food.
- if you are looking for highland..
you can go to cameron highland in Pahang. Go to KL central where you can find bus to take you there. lots of things u may find in that beautiful mountains area. find the good tour agent to take you around cameron highland. you can chech with titiwangsa tours. strawbery farms, butterfly garden, shorts tropicals forest trekking, or visiting English tea factory are things you can do in Cameron
- but if you just want to hit the city of KL you may find moseums, PETRONAS the twin towers of course (check with agenda at petronas if you want to go up to the twin tower and see the city from above..its very limited tour, so u have to struggle to reserve the seat :-)
one things you should missed is SURIAKLCC in one complex with Petronas twin tower Building
i hope its help
The only spot that I know for locals to surf is Teluk Chempedak in Kuantan, Pahang.
Malaysian water isnt known for surfing but you might find it otherwise.
Just be careful being in our water especially the South China Sea during this monsoon season. When the locals say it’s dangerous to be out there, they know what they are talking about! The water might look calm but not the underwater current!
Anyway, enjoy my beautiful country!
thank you! I will check it out!
Malaysia is not much popular for windsurfing because the wind here is not strong enough. The usual spots for windsurfing are Penang, Kuantan and Port Dickson.
Other than windsurfing, jungle trekking and mountain hiking are more of popular in Malaysia. Cameron Highlands and East Malaysia will be the ideal locations for that.
Allow me to chime in here :)
My Mat Salleh mates often ask me if there’s any surf in Malaysia. My stock reply:
Sure there’s surf in Malaysia. It may not always be huge but it’s real consistent from November till March. In fact, we got up to 2m just a few weeks back.
Granted, I wouldn’t really advise anyone to fly in solely for the surf here (although there’s lots of other sea sports to be had to supplement the surfing).
But that said, if you’re going to be around the Malaysian East Coast for other reasons anyway, then places like Cherating, Desaru and Tanjung Resang for instance are definitely surfable. Not to mention a boat-load of wind, surf and fun!

By all means drop in some time :)
Speaking of the wind and fun, sailing and windsurfing enthusiasts will find Tanjung Resang a treat during the November-March monsoon too, as this is when 20-25 knot nor’easterlies blow virtually non-stop.
Hope this helps.
