A Malaysia tour with Costsaver shows you all the iconic sights you can’t miss, from the incredible views of the Petronas Towers to the lush tea fields of the Cameron Highlands.
VISIT THE SKYBRIDGE AT PETRONAS TOWERS IN KUALA LUMPUR
Looking for the best views on your Kuala Lumpur trip? Then it’s got to be the world-famous, Petronas Towers, the tallest twin buildings in the world. Hold on as you glide up 170 metres / 557 feet to the Skybridge, followed by the 370-metre high observation deck, and step out to marvel at the spectacular views over the city.
LEARN ABOUT GROWING TEA IN CAMERON HIGHLANDS
Malaysia sightseeing doesn’t get much better than the Cameron Highlands, and we’ll take you on a dreamy journey through the green valleys, tea plantations and magical strawberry fields. Wander around a butterfly farm, see the painted murals of Perak Cave Temple, and stop for an afternoon tea of scones and local strawberry jam.
ADMIRE THE SULTAN ABDUL SAMAD BUILDING
You can’t miss seeing the grand Sultan Abdul Samad Building on your Kuala Lumpur tour. We’ll take you around every fascinating feature, from the 41-metre clock tower to the lacy arches and glowing domes. It’s one of the most impressive pieces of architecture in the city and it looks even more special when it's lit up after dark.

EXPLORE THE COASTAL CITY OF MALACCA
Malacca is one of the most fascinating places in Malaysia! This UNESCO-listed city has a rich past having once been a vital trading port and you can find Malay, Chinese, Dutch, British and Portuguese influences. We explored the Dutch Square, pink-coloured Stadhuys and Cheng Hoon temple, then shopped for traditional handicrafts at Kampung Kuli.

CLIMB UP THE RAINBOW STAIRCASE TO BATU CAVES
Guarded by a monumental statue of Hindu deity Lord Murugan, the Batu Caves are a Malaysian national treasure and an unmissable day trip from Kuala Lumpur. These limestone caves harbour Hindu temples where dioramas of mythic scenes glow beneath stalactites, bats flutter in the shadows, and monkeys prey on visitors hiking the 272 stairs to Temple Cave. A must!

DISCOVER THE STREET ART OF PENANG
Georgetown is the wonderfully artistic and multicultural main town of Penang and I absolutely fell in love with the gorgeous streets dotted with murals. It was like a treasure hunt as I wandered around spotting all the iconic artworks, and it's the perfect place to take some creative photos!
WHAT TO EAT & DRINK IN MALAYSIA
Wondering what to eat in Malaysia? We’ve got you covered with tips on where to find all the best Malaysian food, from sizzling satay to satisfying soups.
BAK KUT TEK
The name of this dish literally translates to ‘Bone Meat Tea’, but it’s so much more delicious than it sounds. Think juicy pork ribs cooked in a hot herbal broth and served with a plate of steaming rice. Sound good? Get ready to fall in love!
You may have had satay before, but Malaysian satay really takes it to another level. These delicious sticks of richly marinated chunks of satay meat (usually chicken, pork or beef) are best dipped in a spicy peanut sauce, full of wonderful tangy flavours.
Char siu is a Malaysian-style barbecue pork belly that will keep you coming back for more. The meat is sliced into thin pieces, soaked in a sticky, sweet and savoury sauce, then charred to tender perfection and served with steamed rice or noodles. Delicious!

PACKING TIPS FOR MALAYSIA
HOW TO TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY IN MALAYSIA
Malaysia is a conservative country and it’s best to dress modestly by covering your shoulders and legs, especially when visiting a temple, mosque or any place of worship.
Don’t feed the monkeys
It may be tempting to share some treats with the monkeys around Batu Caves or at the beach, but it’s best not to as they can get aggressive and become reliant on human food.
Eat and shop local
Malaysia’s best food is found at local restaurants and we'll show you all the best spots where you can get a real taste of the country’s foodie delights and support the local communities.
