10-day Malaysia trip!

Looking for a good itinerary for Malaysia for a 10-day trip
12 years ago, January 23rd 2011 No: 1 Msg: #127116  
Hi all, I'm a new member to this site!

End of February, i will be taking a 10-day trip to Malaysia and could really use some suggestions for an itinerary. I will arrive early morning on Feb. 18th to Kuala Lumpur and will be meeting up with friends that day and the next... so I was thinking 2 days in Kuala Lumpur.

What I'm really looking to get out of Malaysia is its natural beauty. I really love hiking and outdoorsy things, so I was thinking about spending 3 days in Taman Negara, doing some rafting, treking, etc. I also want to do some beach-bumming and snorkeling if possible. I hear that in February the Perhentians will be closed due to the Monsoon season, so I assume I am limited to the west? I was thinking of doing about 3 days in Longkawi. Then I was thinking about doing a day in Penang. I originally wanted to to see Singapore, but it just seems so out of the way and there is SO much I want to see in 10 days, so I think I'm going to skip it. I'm not a big shopper, so I would rather get more out of the rainforest and beaches of Malaysia. How does this itinerary look and do you have any suggestions?

I would really appreciate any feedback! Reply to this

Hi Ryan,

Your itinerary looks good. I would just recommend changing to 2 days each in Langkawi and Penang, instead of 3 and 1. Plenty to keep you busy in Penang for 2 days.

Have a great trip!

If your looking for be outdoors, I would recommend Cameron Highlands. You can be out in the tea plantations and being in the highlands means that it'll be cooler there then most places in the country.

Penang deserves 3 days all on it's own to check out the Spice Garden and Farm as well as see all the local temples and eat. There is so much to eat in Penang and Georgetown!! There is a big bus terminal in the center of Penang, so it's easy to get out to Snake temple and other great places! You won't be disappointed in stayin the Penang longer!

2 days in KL is more than enough time. There is mostly shopping and some good museums there, but not enough to last you longer then that.

I hope you have a great time!

Asia is a great place to experience the planet’s diverse flora and Fauna and Malaysia is no exception. A must visit for wildlife enthusiasts. It’s great to see so much heritage and culture preserved in spite of the tremendous growth in technology and the rapid spread of globalization.

More than any other spot in the country, Kuala Lumpur, or "KL" as it is commonly known, is the focal point of new Malaysia.

One of the wisest things to do while planning a vacation is to go through a reliable online hotel reservation agency who can give you a special Malaysia hotels. Reply to this

Natural beauty will definitely be Taman Negara or Cameron Highland. Apart from that Tasik Kenyir or Gerik will be equally beautiful but less infrastructure.

Penang & Langkawi is a good choice. Don't forget, if you are in Langkawi drop by Tasik Dayang Bunting. It's a lovely island with a big fresh water pond

Best of luck!

Hi Ryan,

If you crave a dose of deafening silence or just some time away from the ever-present throngs, Malaysia boasts seemingly endless landscapes and seascapes that will simply take your breath away. Best of all, there are plenty of locations to enjoy your favorite beach activity or some outdoors excitement too.

Try visiting the Malaysian East Coast for example. The areas north and south of Mersing will definitely blow you away. And if you like local food, you'll have a blast here. Try the various delicacies, kerupuk lekor or the seafood BBQ.

As for seaside wildlife, Desaru, Air Papan, Tanjung Resang are all stunning capes with lots of wilderness and eco-tourism, but plenty of opportunities for good old-fashioned fun in the sun too. Sailing, kite-surfing, windsurfing, stand up paddling, or just snorkeling or jungle-trekking, I think you just may be coming back for more 😊

Give it a go.

KL is worth staying 3-days, but 2 days wouldn't be the end of the world. I'd also recommend visiting the Batu Caves, which are very near - 30 minutes train ride or so... Reply to this

I would also recommend Batu Caves, it's easily accessible from KL and it's a really lovely spot. Melaka is also a nice place to go to that is very different from the rest of Malaysia. Reply to this
