10 Fun Things to do in Malaysia

1. Malay Sultanate Palace, Melaka

The first thing on this list of fun things to do in Malaysia is the Malay Sultanate Palace in Melaka. The Malay Sultanate Palace is one of the many museums found in the UNESCO Heritage city of Melaka. It is a replica of a traditional Sultan’s Palace. It is interesting enough inside, if not a good way to get out of the heat. The garden is nice also.

2. Street Art of Georgetown

Georgetown in Penang is a nice little city. There are a bunch of things to do there, but my favorite was walking the streets looking at all the street art.

3. Danum Valley, Sabah

I went to Danum Valley as a family excursion. Not my favorite way to travel, but at least it was all expenses paid.

Danum Valley itself is a beautiful wilderness area. It is definitely worth a look if you are a nature lover.

5. Perdana Botanical Gardens, Kuala Lumpur

Number 5 on this list of fun things to do in Malaysia is to visit the Perdana Botanical Gardens. I love botanical gardens. Even small dingy ones are enjoyable. This one is not small or dingy though. It is actually pretty epic.

6. Mosque Negara, Kuala Lumpur

I’m not a huge fan of Mosques, but this one is quite impressive. A tranquil place in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The surroundings are beautiful as well.

10. Gaya Island, Kota Kinabalu

The last thing on this list of fun things to do in Malaysia is Gaya Island. Gaya Island itself doesn’t appeal to me much but it highlights all the islands off the Kota Kinabalu. Amongst them, you can find resorts, watersports, secluded beaches, jungle hikes, and more.
