5 Popular Destinations Of Malaysia, Which You Shouldn't Miss

Malaysia is a great nation that reflects an eclectic blend of traditional customs, traditions, and culture with a touch of modernity. Malaysia’s tourist attractions, such as picturesque islands, beaches, quaint villages, heritage sites, and adventure places, have a lot to offer to discriminating travelers. 

Malaysia, which is still in the shadow of neighboring Thailand, may not be your first option in Southeast Asia. There are barely a few books left. People believe it has the same chaotic, sloppy lifestyle and looks like the other countries in the region. But Malaysia is an exception.

To be clear, Malaysia does not have historical sites dating back hundreds of years. A temple that is 100 years old is considered ancient. On the other hand, Malaysia dazzles with its contemporary architecture, immaculate cleanliness, beautiful green rainforest forests, and unparalleled cultural variety.

If you’re planning a Malaysia holiday, here’s a short list of the most significant locations to see in Malaysia, with a no-miss caution. These attractions will guarantee an excellent trip in Malaysia, whether you seek nature, architecture, leisure, or adventure. So, if you want to have the most satisfactory experience possible, make sure you visit all of these Malaysian tourist attractions on your next vacation to the nation.

Desaru Coast:

Desaru is a laid-back beach village on Johor’s east coast, about an hour’s drive from Johor Bahru. The town has a 22-meter strip of beach. In these quiet fishing towns, you can obtain fresh seafood, a popular family vacation, an ostrich farm with over 100 ostriches, plenty of nature-based activities, and a handful of elegant coastal resorts.

Discover its stunning range of luxury suites, a crowning villa, and One&Only Private Homes, all inspired by Malaysia’s picturesque southeast. One&Only Desaru Coast will unveil secrets of the east like never before, showcasing fresh, exotic foods with flair and flavor, nurturing health with new and old local wisdom, and crafting excursions via an unspoiled environment and warm tropical waters.

Things To Do In Desaru Coast:

  • Treat Yourself To A Luxury Staycation
  • Pay a visit to the Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark.
  • Spend Some Time at Desaru Beach
  • Pay a visit to the Desaru Ostrich Farm.
  • Visit the fishing villages.

Genting Highland Theme Park Malaysia:

When we think about theme parks, many envision an exciting excursion to a location with a specific theme. However, you can now visit a theme park themed after some of your favorite cartoons and movies, complete with retail, food, and entertainment for a fun-filled journey.

Genting SkyWorlds is located on the spreading hills of the Titiwangsa mountain range, approximately 6,000 feet above sea level. This theme park provides thrill-seeking Malaysians with the opportunity to enjoy adrenaline rides, themed worlds, and spectacular sky vistas.

We recommend starting at Genting SkyWorlds’ Central Park.

As the largest in the world, it has a diverse range of rides and attractions, including Night at the Museum: Midnight Mayhem, an action-packed 3D interactive experience, ESD Global Defender, a ‘flying theatre’ for a space adventure, a hybrid aerospace fighter swing ride, and Independence Day: Defiance.

Central Park also boasts a Natural History Museum, which has a massive dinosaur fossil at the entrance, as well as tribal community items. Lake of Dreams features a spectacular fountain show mixed with exciting music and colorful lighting effects.

If you’re looking for more demanding rides, Andromeda Base is a great place because the passages in this zone send tourists on a tremendously adventurous experience.

This world is located in the theme park’s northwest corner. Therefore it has beautiful views of Genting Highlands. Think again if you feel Genting SkyWorlds is just another theme park like the others you’ve visited. Aside from its exhilarating attractions, the park also has a selection of unique and exciting cuisine to taste.


Lang Kawi:

Langkawi, sometimes known as the “Jewel of Kedah,” is a popular tourist destination for Malaysians (and Malaysians are a thrifty lot). Cenang Beach’s pristine white sand meets moderate ocean waves, and it’s long enough that you won’t feel jammed in with other visitors. The Langkawi Cable Car, if you’re willing to pay a charge, also provides a spectacular and panoramic perspective of the island. It is well-known for hosting the top destination weddings around the globe.

Langkawi is a tranquil archipelago of 140 islands, just a handful of which are inhabited. The greatest of them is Langkawi Island’s namesake, designated a UNESCO World Geopark due to its densely populated (by species) protection zones. The most excellent way to see these ecological beauties is from above, on the Langkawi Sky Bridge, which spans the jungle. Pregnant Maiden freshwater lake is a fun area to swim or play keep-away with the kleptomaniac monkeys.

Selangor refers to Malaysia’s most developed and populated state, which leads up to the urban sprawl of Kuala Lumpur. A Formula One racetrack, the National Zoo of Malaysia, and massive entertainment parks, including an indoor winter park, can be found here.

Selangor is bustling and thriving, with retail complexes sprouting in all directions. When you’ve had your fill of shopping, travel to Genting Highlands, Malaysia’s version of Vegas built on top of a mountain. With 10,500 rooms and a theme park, the First World Hotel and Plaza is the world’s biggest hotel.

But Selangor is more than just concrete and bright signs: the famed Batu Caves are a Hindu sanctuary with the world’s most enormous statue of Lord Murugan (the deity of battle). The Batu Caves attract many visitors, especially around the Thaipusam festival.

Kuala Lumpur:

You’ll almost certainly fly into Kuala Lumpur when visiting Malaysia, so this is a no-brainer. However, unlike some other major Asian cities where visitors arrive and then go, Kuala Lumpur is an excellent destination in its own right.

The combination of Malay, Chinese, and Indian influences means there will be no shortage of gastronomic adventures in Malaysia’s capital city. Kuala Lumpur’s attraction stems in large part from its cultural variety. You may explore the wonders of other civilizations by taking a short stroll or hopping on the extensive rail network.

Kuala Lumpur offers a plethora of distinct areas to discover. Before venturing farther afield in Malaysia, attractions such as the Petronas Towers, the Perdana Botanical Garden, and the Menara KL Tower give many delightful distractions.
