East Coast Malaysia

Malaysia's East Coast is a world away from the popular West Coast. Quiet, unspoiled and relatively untouched, the coastline is interrupted only by the occasional traditional Malay fishing village.

Between May and October this side of Malaysia is enjoying its best weather, making it a perfect time to visit Tanjong Jara, a traditional but luxurious reateat located on a secluded stretch of beach. Outside the Resort, enjoy cycle tours to nearby fishing villages, trek through the jungle, join a river cruise or explore the reefs by diving or snorkelling off Tenggol Island – one of Asia’s best kept dive secrets.

If you enjoy your diving head to the stunning island of Tioman, just an hour's flight off the east coast in the middle of a marine park. Here you can kick off your shoes and hide out at JapaMala Resort.

Hidden away from the rest of the island by jungle, this little diamond sits happily on its own stretch of perfect white sand beach. This is true rustic jungle chic and without a doubt the Seychelles of Asia!

“Malaysia is like all of Asia in one small package, thanks to its intoxicating melting pot of Indian, Malay and Chinese influences. It’s a land that really does have everything, from postcard-perfect beaches on Langkawi to the futuristic skyline of Kuala Lumpur, where the Petronas Towers look like two rockets about to launch into space. But the wilds of Borneo is somewhere that will steal your heart, with orangutans, pygmy elephants and many more amazing creatures roaming its rainforests.” Rhodri Andrews, editorial executive
