  1. Food is Cheap and Diverse – With the diversity in cultures within Malaysia, you will also find a large variety in food. Taste local Malay dishes such as Nasi Lemak, Mee Goreng, Satay, Roti Canai, Teh Tarik or White Coffee but also enjoy Indian cuisine or Chinese cuisine.
  2. Malaysia has a Tropical Climate – Malaysia’s temperature stays quite consistent around 27 degrees Celsius, with some place reporting colder or warmer temperatures. This might not sound very warm, but due to the high percentage of humidity these temperatures can feel a lot warmer.
  3. Dress Appropriately – Malaysia is not only filled with stunning nature, it also has many cultural and religious sights for you to visit. Depending on the religion you will be asked to cover your knees and shoulders, take your shoes off before entering and perhaps, as a woman, to cover your hair with a scarf. So be sure to pack some conservative clothing with you and to dress appropriate for the occasion.
