Best Time to Visit:
Set just to the north of the equator, Malaysia enjoys a tropical monsoon climate. It's pretty much hot and humid with a bit of rain throughout the year. Even in the middle of dry season don't be surprised to get a sudden, often very heavy downpour, but it's likely to be gone as quickly as it arrived..There is no "right" time to visit Malaysia. As with Singapore, visitors to Malaysia should expect some rain whenever they go.The best time to visit the east coast of the peninsula is from April or May to October, when you can expect calm waters and clear blue skies
