Exciting Travel Tips in Malaysia

  1. Learn The Local Language

Not all locals speak the same language as travelers from all over the world. Although most of them speak English. In rural areas, locals can say simple phrases such as "Apa kabar?" And "Terimakasih". 

Try speaking basic words in Malay, Chinese and Tamil to communicate better with them. You can also use body language such as smiles to help people understand what you're trying to say. 

They will appreciate that you did your best to talk to them. Some of them will be your friends and will be happy to share their stories with you.

  1. Join the local community 

There are many travel enthusiasts and locals who share their love of Malaysian culture through events and programs. We recommend looking for hotels that organize special programs such as food tours, city tours, hiking, nightlife and many other fun activities

Couchsurfing is also a great way to make friends with the locals. They guide you and enjoy the Malaysian style. If you are interested in art and culture, we encourage you to join the social media pages of local art markets and galleries such as Riuh in The City, Zhongshan Building, The Bee and Publika.

  1. Be Prepared For Hot And Humid Weather

Malaysia boasts a wonderful tropical climate with temperatures ranging from 28 to 31 ÂșC, but can be very hot on certain days and rainy on sunny and sunny days. 

Make a backup plan for enjoying indoor activities so you don't sweat in the sun or get drenched in the rain. Spend time at the mall, browse the shops and enjoy a meal at one of the lovely cafes. Be sure to wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water.

  1. Be Adventurous By Trying Out The Street Vendor Stalls

The stalls may look crowded and hot and stuffy, but the delicious local food might be worth digging into. We cook and serve authentic local cuisine at the warung. It's cheaper than fine dining at a restaurant, so try as many local dishes as you like. 

A plate costs RM7-10 (about USD1-2). You can also order delicious dishes to share with friends. Most of the stalls are kept clean so you can enjoy your meal at your table or on the road.

  1. Compile an Itinerary

Even though it's a vacation, you still need to have a schedule that has been arranged in such a way that the holidays are fun and don't waste time. It's a good idea to compile a list of tourist destinations or places that you will visit such as interesting places that are usually tourist destinations for tourists.

There are several tourist attractions that you can visit, such as:

  • Visit the Batu Caves

  • Go to the Taman Negara National Park

  • Immerse Yourself in the Sarawak Cultural Village

  • Relax in Langkawi Island

  • Climb Mount Kinabalu

  • See the Street Art in Penang

  • Culinary Tour.

  1. No Extra Tipping

There is no tipping in Malaysia. Many cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars add a 10% service charge and 6% GST to your bill. These are listed on the menu. No extra tipping for taxi drivers or hotels as you only need to pay the exact amount. If they give you great service, ask before tipping.

Those are the tips to make your vacation in Malaysia more enjoyable! Don't forget to book flight tickets and hotels only at Traveloka. You can find various accommodation options that suit your budget. In fact, if you're lucky, you can get attractive promos that make your vacation save more!

Happy Holiday Fellas!
