A visit to Malaysia means visiting the different islands that lay beautifully scattered across its landscape. Malaysia is blessed with islands that have something to offer for every kind of tourist—the hippie, the one seeking luxury and the backpacker and more. Know your type and mark this island onto your itinerary list.
● For the hippie: Perhentians Island
The island where wandering artists come and perform their fare, days can be spent hopping onto a fisherman’s boat who will give you a guided tour and evenings can be spent in beach bars—this one is meant for the non-planning adventurous people.
● For the wildlife lovers: Tioman Island
The natural environment and wildlife of the place will leave you stunned and it is one of the major factors contributing to its popularity. The first mammals to greet you will be the giant monitor lizards!
● For the heritage-seekers: Penang Island
Look no farther than Penang if culture, history and tradition is what you seek to find on your Malayan holiday. And this is topped by the fact that it is also one of the best places to sample the local delicacies of Southeast Asia.
