Best Time To Go and Weather

Malaysia is tropical without extremely high temperatures. Days are very warm, while nights are fairly cool. The wettest season on the west coast of the peninsula is between September and December; on the east coast and in Sabah and Sarawak it's between October and February. However, it is difficult to generalize about the country’s climate, as rainfall differs on the east and west coasts according to the prevailing monsoon winds (northeast or southwest).
