  • I have been to Malaysia many times and reading your excellent article brought back nice memories. As far as food is concerned I remember having excellent food like South Indian in a Mamak shop at around 2 to 5 MYR or Ayam Kunyit with rice at a street stall for 6 MYR.

  • Spidan Island is wow. I always see the other stuff in photos, but never seen or heard of this place. I not feel the need to get to there sooner rather than later.

  • I think that the street food scene of Malaysia is very much influenced by South India. This post is very helpful as I am looking forward to my visit here in 2018.
    Never heard of Sipidan Island, but the pic looks gorgeous.

  • Wow, amazing photos! I wish we had more time in Malaysia, we really only spent a day in KL and a few in Penang! I would love to go back and especially capture photography like this!

  • The two places in Malaysia that I’m excited about visiting are Kotakinabalu and Borneo! Both seem like vastly unique experiences and kind of lesser explored. I also remember having wonderful South Indian food in KL 😊

  • Suruchi! I have been to Perhentian. Now that your article reminded me, I need to go and find all the pictures shot. I enjoyed Malaysia, as it was very similar to a cleaner version of Tamil Nadu since majority of them speak Tamil. I so far have avoided the street food, as its tough to make out what is pure veg and what is not 🙂

    Which is the place in your article that has those trees and swings on a beach?

  • Malaysia is one of the best destination to visit and its not expensive. The only challenge for most tourists are finding the foods that they would like, especially for those who eats meat. The rest are amazing!

  • When I am planning to travel to Malaysia in next two months, your post comes as a boon, the way you have detailed out everything, its gonna be a great help while planning my trip. Thanks for sharing, bookmarking it

  • I’ve only been to Malaysia on a 12 hour layover, luckily I did get to experience a couple of the things you mentioned on here! Seeing the Kuala Lumpar towers at night sitting in a 50 story infinity pool overlooking them was pretty amazing! I’ love to go back and visit sometime soon!!

  • Malaysia is one country in SE Asia that we always postpone visiting. Whenever we think of it, some other plan materializes and we head out to a different place. But yes there is so much to do in this country apart from Kuala Lumpur. What we would love to do is head out of the city to the smaller towns and explore the interiors, though of course when you are there you cannot miss seeing the iconic Twin towers and other highlights.
