Whatever is the season, the beauty and charm of Malaysia never ceases. But yes, like other tourism destinations, it has its own travel peak season or in other words, best time to visit Malaysia. Seeing that the nation's climate is primarily tropical, it remains hot and humid throughout the year. So, regarding the weather, months from May to September are considered as the ideal time to visit Malaysia.
Since it rains heavily during October-November and April-May on the
West coast and from November to January on the East coast and in Sabah
and Sarawak, this time is avoided by beach lovers. However, rainy season
is the best time to spot turtles which come out to lay their eggs.
People, who really want to enjoy the beaches, must avoid monsoon season
(November to January). Apart from the highlands, the temperature hovers
around 30°C in the lowlands with high levels of humidity.
It is also not recommended to visit in Monsoons since water sports too,
don't work in this season. Concerning the festivities and mega sale
carnival, Malaysia observes travel peak season during November-January.
Since this ideal time covers the winter holidays and major festivals
like Christmas, New Year's Eve, Chinese New Year and Hari Raya Puasa. It
is possible to find shops closed during major holidays, but shopping
malls and amusement parks would never let the excitement down.
