Being an equatorial country, Malaysia’s weather is generally warm and sunny all year round, with humidity high at 80-90%. The onset of the monsoon season from May to September brings with it rain to the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The east coast of the peninsula and Sabah and Sarawak experience their monsoon season between November and February. For our program, the best time to visit is March through September.
