Outdoor Joyride in Your Far East Travel Malaysia Tour Photo by Ninad Chaudhari

When it comes to your travel to Far East; Malaysia is extremely popular for its outdoor freedom. The exotic rainforest, humungous mountains and deep caves create the diverse terrain.  The rich experiences in the Malaysian outdoors vary and offer the Far East travel of a lifetime. So, when you book your Malaysia tour packages, keep an eye out for the wild open spaces and fun adventures.


Enter the two kilometre long caves in the Gunung Mulu national park. Camp and enjoy a hike along with a look at exotic flora and fauna in Endau Rompin National Park. The Sungai Padas is the classic Malaysia outdoor; a rainforest with the perfect white water rafting sites on Ulu Slim River.  Enjoy the romantic walk in the tea plantations of Cameron Highlands. Take a chance for a boat ride in Sungai Kinabatangan and you may find yourself looking at the Orang-utans, pygmy elephants and delightful birdlife.

These are fascinating yet typical destinations in Malaysia tour packages. You cannot help but fall in love with this awesome little country.  There is unforgettable tropical warmth and significant biodiversity in this small region. You will adore the national parks and smallest of experiences for their natural glory.

Water sports

The beach side of Malaysia, though not equally famous, has some really breathtaking beaches and the water sports. In Far East travel, Thailand has always been popular for water sports. But, this land is also blessed with ocean beauty. So, you can go explore the dive sites in Semporna Archipelago. You can check out the waves on the beaches of Tioman Islands for the swell of Indonesia. One of the best snorkelling experiences are waiting for you at the Perhentian Islands.

But, don’t make a too simplistic assumption about the land sports. Malaysia has more than its fair share of it with white water rafting, hiking, and trekking at the centre of it.  The charm and beauty of these land sports is that they can be easily combined with picturesque views of the scenery; perfect for the post cards.  Then, there is the unspoken challenge of Mount Kinabalu. The two-day climb is well worth the travel for sure.

This is the heart of the Malaysia experience; but don’t sell it short on the modern city attractions and sightseeing either. Kuala Lumpur and other cities have the best architecture, museums, exquisite fine dining and shopping malls. This can easily balance out the outdoor adventures.
