For kids, travelling to new places and experiencing different cultures can be an amazing and eye-opening experience. Family holidays give them the opportunity to learn about customs and life in a completely different place, which will resonate with them for years to come. And Malaysia is one of the most eclectic countries in the world, with some of the best facilities for families. It’s never been easier to take your kids to a new corner of the world. Here, you’ll find everything you need, with family-friendly resorts and English-speaking guides, who’ll help you navigate the streets of this amazing country. What could be better than exploring the bustling streets of Kuala Lumpur as a family, taking in the skyscrapers? Or walking through the treetops in the Taman Negara National Park? Or you could simply chill out together on a white, sandy beach. Whatever you’re into, Malaysia has something to make each day unique. If it’s not already on your family’s bucket list, then it should be – are you ready to tick it off the list?

Why is Malaysia great for Families?

Malaysia is widely acknowledged to be one of the easiest and most accessible Asian countries to travel around. This is particularly true for families, especially those with young children. The people here are so welcoming and friendly that you’ll feel at home straight away. Many of the locals speak English and a lot of the signposts are also in English, so exploring is stress-free. There are so many wonderful places and experiences for your kids to enjoy. Malaysia is home to incredible natural beauty, wildlife and even a few exciting theme parks. Glittering cities and untouched beaches make a great combination. And there’s no better way to learn about the natural world than to see it with your own eyes. Best of all, in places like Langkawi, children under the age of four can take part in activities for free, so the kids can try kayaking, hiking, and so much more. You’ll soon find that Malaysia is a family destination unlike any other, so it’s sure to be a holiday that you’ll never forget. 

Things to do in Malaysia

Jungle Living

 Malaysia is home to some of the world’s most impressive scenery, including some of the most stunning jungles in the world. The opportunity to walk amongst it is one that can’t be missed. In Taman Negara National Park, the whole family can walk along suspended bridges in the forest canopy, looking out for wildlife as you go – the park is home to monkeys, tapir and a huge variety of tropical birds. From up in the treetops, you’ll have unparalleled views of the rainforest. On the island of Penang, meanwhile, you can learn a little more about rural life in Malaysia. With dense, mountainous rainforest and small fishing villages, this is a great place to come with children, to allow them to see a completely different way of life. 

Kuala Lumpur

 A few days, or even a week, in Kuala Lumpur is sure to be one of the highlights of any family holiday to Malaysia. This city is a real mixture of modernity and tradition, with towering skyscrapers, bustling markets and meticulously-designed parks. Kuala Lumpur’s streets are alive with movement and culture. Kids will love exploring Malaysia’s capital, soaking in all the sights and smells. From the Petrosains Discovery Centre to the vast aquarium, there’s something to keep kids of all ages interested and excited. Why not head to the Berjaya Times Square Theme Park, or see some of Malaysia’s winged residents at a butterfly farm or bird park? If you keep your eyes peeled, you might even spot some monkeys playing in the trees. 

Beautiful Beaches  

 Of course, no trip to a tropical, sunny country like Malaysia would be complete without a few days on the beach. Malaysia has some of the most pristine beaches in all of Asia – perfect for a few days of rest and relaxation at the end of your holiday. A series of beautiful, sand-smothered islands pepper Malaysia’s coastline – but how do you choose one? The large isle of Penang has plenty going on, including some particularly lovely beaches. Pocket-sized Rawa looks like a postcard, with bright turquoise waters, snow-white sands and no roads. And shipwreck-surrounded Tioman is popular for its snorkelling, hiking and family-friendly resorts, with plenty of activities for both children and parents.
