Today we’re sharing our 2 weeks in Malaysia itinerary which is perfect for any first timer to Malaysia. We curated this program for everyone who wants to experience the highlights Malaysia has to offer. When planning our itinerary, we made sure to have a balanced mix between different regions and activities for you in order to enjoy your trip as much as possible.
Since spending almost three weeks in Malaysia earlier this year, we’re dreaming about going back. Experiencing a different culture, seeing wildlife and adventuring around this gorgeous country in Southeast Asia just left us speechless. Hence, we curated this 2 weeks in Malaysia itinerary for you. It’s perfect for anyone who loved nature and adventures, but equally wants to see Malaysias highlights.
Why should you visit Malaysia?
- Gorgeous temples and culture to experience
- Amazing landscapes and wildlife that you can see nowhere else in the world
- Great food – from typical Malaysian meals up to Thai cuisine
- Still not that crowded than other countries in Southeast Asia
To be honest, we just recently added Malaysia to our bucket list and were lucky enough to be able to spend almost three weeks there. It’s hands down one of the most underrated countries in Southeast Asia. Malaysia offers you amazing landscapes, great snorkeling or hiking opportunities, a welcoming culture and friendly people, great food and experiences that last a lifetime. If you ask us, Malaysia is a must see within the next year, because sooner or later it will become more and more popular. Now is your chance to visit Malaysia without the crowds.
Best time to visit Malaysia
First of all, this depends on where you’re going and what you want to experience. Moreover, it’s no longer possible to answer this question exactly as the weather changes and gets more and more unpredictable. Therefore, you will find rough guidelines in the following, but it can always be that it rains in the dry season or is totally dry in the rainy season.
Generally speaking, the best time to visit Kuala Lumpur and other areas of Peninsular Malaysia is between November and August. Although temperatures are constant year-round, you will avoid the worst of the monsoon season during this time. Don’t forget that is can still be rainy here and then, so don’t forget your rain coat at home.
If you want to visit the East Coast of Malaysia, you should plan your trip between March and September. This is also the best time to visit the tropical rainforests in Sabah or Sarawak in Borneo.
How to get to Malaysia
The best way to get to Malaysia is by airplane. We flew China Airlines from Frankfurt am Main (Germany) to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and can highly recommend. This time, we opted for the Premium Economy Class. Somehow we never thought that it would be worth upgrading from the normal economy class since it does not seem to make such a big difference.
However, now we can prove you wrong. The Premium Economy Class of China Airlines has significantly more legroom and fewer seats per compartment, which makes it altogether quieter and more relaxed. Whether you’re flying overnight or just want to relax, China Airlines allows you to adjust your seat to the back without taking away legroom from the passenger in the next row. If you want to read more about our experience, we summarized it for you in our first timer’s guide.
How to get around in Malaysia
Once you’re in Malaysia, it’s super easy to get anywhere you want with the Grab app. Grab is built like Uber. You simply indicate where you are and then where you’d like to go. Grab then shows you how much a ride will cost and assigns you a driver once you’ve confirmed. We’ve tried Grab both in Kuala Lumpur and in more rural areas, and it’s worked great every time. Also, Grab is not only suitable for shorter distances, you could possibly also use Grab to get from one city to another.
Another option is to book a guide with a private driver. This is of course a bit more expensive, but can be worth it – especially if you are only in the country for a short time. In particular in nature or historical sites, we would recommend a guide either way, as this is the only way to learn about nature and history.

Okay, now reading this summary you might have a question mark or two in your head, because what is this all about? We’re getting into this in detail in a minute, but I’d like to add some words on why we chose this particular itinerary. First of all, this itinerary is ideal for first timer’s in Malaysia which is why it includes the highlights of the country, such as Kuala Lumpur, Sandakan, the Kinabatangan Wetlands, Langkawi, Penang, the Cameron Highlands, and Ipoh. It’s also the ideal road trip throughout the country, because these locations are easily combined with one another. But now, let’s start and get into this 2 week Malaysia itinerary.
Day 1 of your 2 weeks in Malaysia itinerary
Inbound flight to Kuala Lumpur & exploring Kuala Lumpur
When we flew to Malaysia, we boarded the plane in Frankfurt on Friday and landed in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday. Fortunately, it’s not too far from the airport into the city. To get from the airport to the city centre or to your hotel, it’s best to take the KLIA Express, which takes you to the city centre in just 28 minutes. From there, you can simply order a Grab Taxi to take you to your hotel.
First stops in Kuala Lumpur: China Town, Petronas Towers & Water show at KLCC Park
After the flight, we had a short rest in the hotel and freshened up before setting off on a short tour. On the first day, we definitely recommend you try the Malay food and get used to the culture, so your first stop will be China Town. Here you’ll find delicious street food markets and can acclimatise to the tropical weather with a cold coconut. We loved the markets because you can find so much incredibly delicious food here. From typical Malaysian dishes to Thai food or just fruit, there’s everything.
Thereafter, we take it easy: today we only visit the famous twin towers, the Petronas Towers. You can get there again with a Grab Taxi or enjoy a 45-minute walk through the city. Tip: It’s best to buy tickets for the Petronas Towers before you leave, as they may no longer be available on the day.
The view from the Petronas Towers is truly indescribably beautiful and shows you the capital of Malaysia at a glance. As soon as you finish your tour of the twin towers, stay a little longer in KLCC Park, as regular water shows with music and lights take place here in the evenings. These are free and you can simply watch them from the park. It’s best to stand on the bridge directly opposite the towers to enjoy the best view.
Day 2 in Malaysia: Highlight tour of Kuala Lumpur
Firstly, start your day with breakfast at your hotel. Most hotels in Kuala Lumpur offer typical Western breakfast as well as Malaysian dishes. Step out of your comfort zone and try some new delicacies if you feel like it.
Morning: Thean Hou Temple & Little India
Once you’re finished having breakfast, take a Grab taxi and drive to the Thean Hou Temple, a gorgeous six-tired Buddhist temple. This temple was built in 1987 and is dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess Mazu. It’s a must-see when visiting Kuala Lumpur as it’s not only full of culture and history, but also one of the most Instagrammable places in Kuala Lumpur.
Take your time and explore the grounds of this gorgeous temple. Afterwards, it’s time for another highlight: the beautiful district called Little India.
Little India, or Brickfields, is one of the most colourful and vibrant neighbourhoods in Kuala Lumpur. It’s one of the most popular districts in Kuala Lumpur as it is filled with history, culture, amazing food, and cute little shophouses selling all kinds of goods.
Noon: Batu Caves & Merdeka Square
One thing you need to know about the Batu Caves: It can get pretty crowded during the day. During our time in Kuala Lumpur it was raining which might be a reason why it’s less crowded, but you should definitely plan some extra time here if it’s full of people.
Besides exploring the temples at the base of the cave, snapping photos of the stairway, and marveling at the towering statue of Murugan, it’s worth tackling the 272 steps to the top. This is the only way you can get a glimpse of the cave’s ancient limestone interior.
Since the Batu Caves aren’t directly located within the city centre, you now make your way back to Merdeka Square. This is the Malaysian independence square. Did you know that Malaysia has been a British colony until 1957? Visit the popular Merdeka Square and roam around. You can also find cute cafés and great restaurants in this area which are ideal for a quick lunch.
Evening: Bukit Bintang & Jalan Alor
End your day in the bustling district called Bukit Bintang. This neighbourhood is known for high-end fashion boutiques as well as open-air bars, clubs with live music and street food markets. The most famous one is Jalan Alor. Once the sun has set, Jalan Alor becomes a bustling market lined with restaurants and outdoor seating.
Tip: You should definitely end your day with a fresh coconut, coconut ice cream & fruits like Mangosteen. If you dare, you could also try Durian. Durian is a popular fruit in Malaysia and tastes unusual to Europeans at first. If you’re roaming around Jalan Alor, I can promise you that you can smell Durian throughout the streets.
If you’re spending two days in Kuala Lumpur, you can find our dedicated itinerary for the Malaysian capital city here.
Day 3 in Malaysia: Getting to Sabah & your first night in the jungle
Again, start your day with a breakfast at your hotel and then pack your things up to leave for Sabah. If you want to visit Sabah, Borneo during your time in Malaysia, we’d highly recommend to fly to Sandakan from Kuala Lumpur. This is because Kuala Lumpur has the best flights to Sabah. However, we would not recommend to fly to Sabah directly after landing in Kuala Lumpur, because this gives you no time to acclimatize.
Morning & Noon: Getting to Sabah
After breakfast you can call a taxi and travel back to the airport. It takes just under three hours to fly from Kuala Lumpur to Sandakan. This means you will probably land in the early afternoon and can still use the time wisely. Sandakan is the best starting point in Sabah for our 2 weeks in Malaysia itinerary.
Once you’ve landed in Sandakan, grab lunch at Crowd 99 Café. We loved this little restaurant for its authentic Malaysian cuisine and can highly recommend their soups.
Evening: Check-in & your first night in the jungle
Afterwards, check into your hotel and get comfortable for your first night in the jungle. During our time in Sepilok, we’ve stayed at the Sepilok Nature Resort which we’ve already mentioned in our top things to do in Sabah, Borneo blog post. It’s only a short drive or even walk from the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and has been one of our favourite stays in Malaysia!
Day 4 in Malaysia: Sepilok Wildlife
Today marks the fourth day of your unforgettable 2 weeks in Malaysia itinerary. Finally, this day will come with a whole lot of wildlife, so get ready to dive deep into the heart of Borneo. First of all, get ready and have a good breakfast at the Sepilok Nature Resort. Here, you can order different dishes that are custom-made for you. Afterwards, we’ll head over to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre.
Morning: Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre
This has to be one of our favorite memories ever: The Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre is a gorgeous sanctuary nestled in the heart of Borneo. It’s dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned and injured orangutans. Thus, visitors have the unique opportunity to witness these remarkable creatures in their natural habitat. As they undergo a transformative journey towards rehabilitation and release, you can see baby orangutans and parent animals. The centre provides a nurturing environment where orangutans are gradually introduced to the wilderness, fostering their independence and survival skills.
As you stroll along the lush pathways, you can observe these endearing primates swinging through the towering treetops, foraging for nourishment, and displaying their innate curiosity and intelligence.
Tip: You should arrive pretty early to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre to have the opportunity to see everything without any crowds.
Noon: Sun Bear Conservation Centre
Now, directly opposite the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre is the Sun Bear Conservation Centre. As you may already think, this is another sanctuary that is dedicated to the preservation and welfare of the world’s smallest bear species.
As a visitor, you have the opportunity to observe the Sun Bears of Borneo and learn about these unique animals, which are indigenous to Southeast Asia’s tropical forests. Here, a team of dedicated experts works tirelessly to rehabilitate and care for sun bears that have been rescued from distressing situations, providing them with a safe and natural environment to thrive.
Tip: As there are no lunch opportunities nearby, you should pack some light snacks and beverages in order to visit both sanctuaries after one another.
Evening: Dinner at Ocean King Restaurant
After visiting these mesmerising sanctuaries and – hopefully – seeing sun bears and orangutans, get ready for dinner at the Ocean King Restaurant in Sandakan. Generally, Sabah is one of the best places in the entire world for seafood. This means that you should definitely take advantage of this and have seafood for dinner. However, you don’t fancy driving all the way back to Sandakan, you can also have dinner at the Sepilok Nature Resort.
Day 5 in Malaysia: Kinabatangan Wetlands
We really hope you’re ready for more and more wildlife, because day 5 of your Malaysian adventure will lead you to the Kinabatangan Wetlands. Immerse yourself in a river cruise, encounter diverse wildlife, and soak in the natural beauty of the region.
Morning: Boat tour from Sandakan to KWR
Of course, before seeing more wildlife, you have to get to the Kinabatangan Wetlands. Personally, we’d recommend to stay at the Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort (KWR). But the choice is up to you as there are several villages along the Kinabatangan River. Another possible lodge would be the Kinabatangan Wildlife Lodge in Abai, a village along the Kinabatangan River.
The differences between the several lodges are pretty clear: while you can reach some of them by car, Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort can only be reached by boat. We loved the remoteness of KWR, but this also means that you don’t have any mobile signal. In the end, it’s up to you where you want to spend your time. For this two weeks in Malaysia itinerary, we continue with the KWR.
Noon: Kinabatangan River Cruise
After your boat tour from Sandakan to the Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort, check in and make yourself comfortable. At KWR you will get breakfast, lunch, and dinner included in your price. When we arrived, we were greeted with fresh mango juice, a cold towel and some food.
Then we met up for our first experience in the Kinabatangan Wetlands: A river cruise. This is the best opportunity to get to know the Kinabatangan River and see wildlife. If you’re lucky, you’ll have the chance to see proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants, crocodiles, macaques, silver leaf monkeys, red leaf monkeys as well as many bird species.
During your first tour you’ll be guided through the Kinabatangan River and your guide will explain everything you need to know. They’ll also work as spotters and we were absolutely surprised on how well they’ve seen wildlife from far away.
Evening: Guided night walk at KWR
In the evening, it’s not only time for dinner at the KWR. After dinner there is another experience included in the price: a guided night walk around the KWR property. The guided night walk offers an opportunity to delve into the depths of the jungle and witness its nocturnal wonders. Led by experienced guides, the night walk unveils a captivating world where the echoes of wildlife come alive under the embrace of darkness. I can tell you that I’ve been pretty scared to walk through a jungle in the night, but the guides were absolutely amazing and KWR has prepared the ground so that you walk on wood.
Day 6 in Malaysia: Proboscis monkeys & river wildlife
Get ready for another exciting day filled with wildlife encounters and unforgettable river experiences in the stunning Kinabatangan Wetlands. Witness the majestic proboscis monkeys and embark on captivating river safaris to observe diverse wildlife in their natural habitat. Can’t wait to dive into this adventurous day? Let’s go!
Morning: Early morning sunrise river cruise
Before breakfast you’ll embark on an enchanting early morning sunrise river cruise. The river cruise starts before sunrise which is perfect in order to see wildlife waking up. As the first light of dawn gently illuminates the horizon, you’ll see proboscis monkeys and macaques waking up.
Don’t worry about getting hungry, because the Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort will pack breakfast for each and everyone. We had coffee and sandwiches directly on the river, served admits the captivating sounds of nature. This immersive and peaceful river cruise provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity to immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of the Kinabatangan River and savor a memorable morning. After the early river safari you can of course also have a second breakfast at the resort itself.
Noon: Kinabatangan river safari
In the afternoon we go on another tour on the Kinabatangan River. Here you again have the opportunity to observe a variety of animals up close. Because there are so many different tours, your chances naturally increase.
Evening: Night cruise on the Kinabatangan River
Of course, what shouldn’t be missing at the end? Exactly, a sunset tour. That’s why you’ll cruise the Kinabatangan River one last time before having dinner.
Day 7 in Malaysia: Morning river cruise & departure to Langkawi
Morning: Sunrise river safari
Before you leave the wonderful Kinabatangan Wetlands again, you have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful sunrise on the river. The sunrise tours were our favorite in the Kinabatangan Wetlands. We had the feeling that we could see a lot more wildlife here and that the whole river was bathed in a beautiful gold.
In summary, you can book different packaged at the Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort – and probably also with the other resorts along the river. If you’re thinking that the river tours are too much, let me tell you that they are not. In fact, it’s not guaranteed that you will see wildlife every time you cruise along the river. By having more river safaris, you’re chances to see the wildlife you’d like to see increase.
Noon & Evening: Getting to Langkawi
Now it’s time to leave the Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort. To do this, you take the boat back to Sandakan and then continue your journey to Langkawi. Due to a few delays, we made it to Langkawi relatively late and only arrived after dark. But what we could see in the dark already convinced us and we knew: this is a heavenly beautiful island.
Day 8 in Malaysia: Pure serenity in Langkawi
During our time in Langkawi we had the pleasure of staying at The Datai Langkawi. This is not only one of the best hotels in the world, but also one of the most characteristic hotels we have stayed in so far. If you want to read more about it, you can find a whole blog post about The Datai Langkawi here.
Morning: Forest bathing at The Datai Langkawi
Your first morning in Langkawi starts with forest bathing. Never heard of it before? No problem, we felt the same way. Our guide picked us up at reception and took us to the nearby river. Forest bathing is about being with nature and enjoying it to the fullest. After a short walk through the forest we arrived at a small natural swimming pool. Here we did some yoga exercises and then we had enough time to swim in the river. Even though it was strange at first, we really enjoyed the time and can really recommend it.
Noon: Relaxation at the beach
Every now and then you just have to relax: enjoy the afternoon on the hotel’s private beach and enjoy the view of the Andaman Sea and Thailand. Because if visibility is good, you can actually see a Thai island in the distance.
Evening: Romantic dinner at The Datai Langkawi
In the evening we go to a romantic dinner at The Datai. The hotel has various restaurants with different concepts. Perfect for a relaxing evening – alone or as a couple.
Day 9 in Malaysia: Water sports & jungle exploration
Prepare yourself for an invigorating day of thrills and serenity as you engage in energizing water sports against the stunning backdrop of Langkawi’s coastline. Afterwards, you’ll have an immersive jungle exploration experience, surrounded by the lush jungles or Langkawi.
Morning: Water sports nearby Thailand
Welcome to your second day in Langkawi and already the ninth day of this two-week Malaysia itinerary. Start your day at the huge breakfast buffet of The Datai Langkawi and then head to the beach club where you can enjoy free water sports in front of the stunning backdrop.
Noon: Exploring the jungle in Langkawi
After you’ve exhausted yourself with water sports, you can recharge your batteries in the forest. The Datai has over 1,800 hectares of rainforest. You can’t enter most of it, but there is a small center on the beach with guides who will take you through part of the rainforest and explain everything to you.
Evening: Sunset beach walk
This wonderful day in Langkawi is soon coming to an end: enjoy it with a sunset on the beach. Afterwards you have the opportunity to visit one of the many restaurants and listen to the rainforest.
Day 10 in Malaysia: Street art & street food in Penang
From Langkawi it’s only a short way over to Penang: today you’re off to another peninsula that’s best known for its street art and good food.
Morning: Getting from Langkawi to Penang
Firstly, grab breakfast and pack up all your belongings for another travel. Today we’re going to Penang – or more specifically, Peninsular Penang. The best way to get to Penang is by air since the ferry is currently still closed. However, it’s only a 30 minute flight from Langkawi to Penang. If you want to read more about the charms of Penang, we have a whole blog post about this as well.
Noon: Street art tour in Penang
What would a visit to Penang be without seeing the unique street art? You can walk through the city on your own or book a street art tour. Either way, we were absolutely amazed by the variety of great art. Since you can find most locations online, you might be tempted to just walk the tour for yourself. From our own experience we can say that most guides are an absolute highlight since they can explain the history and meaning behind to you.
Evening: Street food dinner at hawker stalls in Penang
One day is actually enough to explore and see Penang. That’s why you should definitely spend your evening with street food. Here – similar to other cities in Malaysia – you will find a circuit in which various street food shops offer their dishes.
Day 11 in Malaysia: Cameron Highlands
For our way back to Kuala Lumpur, we decided to book a rental car in Penang and then drive back to Kuala Lumpur on our own. It is important that there is left-hand traffic in Malaysia and you should be prepared for this. Basically, driving in Malaysia is relaxed and very safe. That’s why we drove from Penang to the Cameron Highlands in the morning. We would definitely recommend that you set off as early as possible. The Cameron Highlands only has one road, which quickly becomes clogged and otherwise causes traffic jams.
Morning: Driving to the Cameron Highlands
The drive from Penang to the Cameron Highlands takes around 3 hours. We drove straight to our hotel, the Cameron Highlands Resort, and were able to park there. Afterwards we saw that the street that leads past the hotel was completely overcrowded.
By the way, the Cameron Highlands Resort is one of the oldest hotels in this region and was named after William Cameron, a British Government surveyor who discovered it in 1885. Here you’re promised splendour, romance and nostalgia. Although the Cameron Highlands Resort is located in Asia, you’ll also have traditional English experiences such as the Afternoon Tea with freshly baked scones.
Moreover, the beautiful five-star hotel has different experiences and makes sure that you’ll enjoy your stay in the Cameron Highlands to the fullest. Starting with a delicious breakfast buffet and continuing your way over to an even better dinner experience.
Noon: Afternoon tea at Cameron Highlands Resort
In the afternoon, hotel guests have the opportunity to enjoy afternoon tea. As you would expect from England, you will get fresh scones, various sandwiches, delicious jams and small pastries.
Evening: BOH tea plantation
After a little refreshment, we go on the first tour towards the BOH tea plantation. This is an absolute must when you are in the Cameron Highlands. Here you can see how tea is grown and even buy some yourself in the shop.
Day 12 in Malaysia: The jungle of the Cameron Highlands
Morning: Jim Thompson trail
The Jim Thompson trail, nestled within the lush greenery of the Cameron Highlands, offered us a great experience during our stay at the Cameron Highlands Resort. As we set off on this trail, we were instantly captivated by the mystical ambiance of the dense forests and the sounds of the native wildlife.
The trail led us on a journey through the verdant jungle, unveiling an abundance of exotic flora and fauna at every turn. Towering ancient trees draped in emerald vines created a picturesque setting.
As we ventured deeper into the heart of the jungle, the experienced guide regaled us with captivating tales of the trail’s namesake, Jim Thompson, and the surrounding legends that added an extra layer of mystery to our trek. The Jim Thompson trail not only offered us a glimpse into the region’s natural splendor but also provided a unique window into its cultural heritage.
Noon: Mossy forest
The mossy forest in the Cameron Highlands exudes an otherworldly charm, drawing visitors into a realm of enchanting natural beauty and diversity. As you wander through this mystical landscape, towering ancient trees adorned with lush mosses and lichens cast an ethereal aura, creating a sense of wonder and tranquility.
Evening: Dinner at Cameron Highlands Resort
We found the dinner at the Cameron Highlands Resort to be a delightful experience that combines exquisite cuisine with breathtaking views of the surrounding lush hills. The resort’s elegant restaurant offers a charming ambiance and completed with the nice service, we loved every minute. From savoring traditional Malaysian flavors to relishing gourmet delicacies, diners are treated to a culinary journey that reflects the region’s rich culinary heritage.
Tip: You should definitely pack something warm for the Cameron Highlands as the cool mountain air makes it much colder than the other parts of Malaysia.
Day 13 in Malaysia: Temples of Ipoh & back to Kuala Lumpur
It’s day 13 of your 2 weeks in Malaysia itinerary and today we’re taking you through an enriching day filled with cultural exploration and natural beauty. As we’ve wanted to see the BOH tea plantation again, we started our day with a breathtaking sunrise and then drove all the way to Ipoh, a city known for its gorgeous temples.
Morning: Sunrise at the BOH tea plantation
For sunrise we went to the BOH tea plantation again. As it rained during our first visit, we wanted to take the chance to see the tea plantation in sunshine and boy oh boy, this was such a beautiful experience! Thus, if you have the time and want to see the BOH tea plantation during the best sunlight possible, visit again during sunrise. But please be aware that the tea plantation itself might be closed during sunrise.
Noon: Temples of Ipoh
After having breakfast at the hotel, we continued our travels to Ipoh. Before visiting Malaysia, we’ve already read a lot about Ipoh and its temples. On a good note, this was a great way to see some more Asian temples. However, the temples itself were a bit worn down and it felt like they’re not cared after. Nevertheless and especially if you’re travelling from the Cameron Highlands to Kuala Lumpur anyways, it’s definitely worth stopping by in Ipoh.
Evening: Back in Kuala Lumpur
In the evening you should be back in Kuala Lumpur so that you can enjoy your last evening at a street food market. Just do what you feel like doing the most. Since it was raining, we didn’t go to a rooftop bar, but that would certainly be a great opportunity.
Day 14 in Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur mornings & outbound flight to Germany
Now it’s your last day in Malaysia and we’re slowly coming to an end of our itinerary for your perfect two weeks in Malaysia. We really hope you’ve liked our itinerary and that it helps you with your travel plans and experiencing Malaysia. If you’re visiting Malaysia for the first time, you might also want to take a look at our first timer’s guide for Malaysia.
Morning: Last morning in Kuala Lumpur
Since it’s your last morning in Kuala Lumpur, take it easy. If there’s something left on your bucket list, tick this off. Otherwise, just have breakfast and then head to the airport. Since it was raining anyways, we enjoyed a slow morning before travelling back to Germany.
Noon: Outbound flight to Germany
At some point everything comes to an end and so do your two weeks in Malaysia. We hope you had an incredibly wonderful time with lots of great memories. If you’re looking for more information about travelling Malaysia, here are some blog posts you might like:
