MALAYSIA

The Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia was the first country I ever visited in Asia.

I had heard mixed things about backpacking in Malaysia, so didn’t have the highest of expectations. However, Malaysia blew me away. 

Malaysia is full of rich culture, incredible nature and some of the best food on the planet. It’s become one of my favourite countries in Asia and I’ve now been there three times. 

Below, you’ll find all my current guides for Malaysia. This includes itinerary ideas, backpacking guides and destination guides. 

I’m already planning my next trip to Malaysia and can’t wait to return.
