Travel Insurance for Within Malaysia

As Malaysians, we need not go far for amazing travel experiences. Our very own country has a perfect balance of dense natural and urban jungles. From the crystalline waters of the Perhentian Islands to the majestic Petronas Twin Towers, Malaysia is a perfect vacation spot. Spend the day at the lush tea plantation in Cameron Highlands or trek through huge national parks like Gunung Mulu and Taman Negara where you are sure to encounter incredible wildlife. Let’s not forget the giant Borneo Island as it has so many must-see spots. At the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre in Sabah, you’ll have the chance to watch the remarkable orang utans up close in their natural habitats. If you are there between 10am to 3pm, you’ll get to see the incredible animals being fed milk and bananas from the viewing gallery. Feeding time also attracts long-tailed macaques to the area. One of the best diving locations in the world happens to be in our very own country. Sipadan has diverse marine life and the most gorgeous tropical scenery. Everywhere you turn in Sipadan, you'll see turtles, munching on the sponges and algae, or lazing on the wall ledges. Let’s enjoy our country and savor all the different decadent cuisines and incredible cultures. You will truly fall in love with Malaysia all over again.

Malaysia is generally quite warm so pack light clothes and casual footwear. If you are planning on taking a taxi to go around, it’s best to agree on a price upfront if it’s not a metered taxi. Buses are extremely convenient and inexpensive, while domestic flights can be booked for as low as RM100. Attractions in Malaysia are reasonably priced as well. Entries to most national parks are less than RM20 and you can even set up camp at Taman Negara for only RM5 a night. Street stalls have the best food in the country so head to any food court and have a feast. There is even a free walking tour with Airotour where you not only get to see incredible places but learn more about Malaysian history and culture. If you are feeling adventurous, you can attempt to hike through the majestic Mount Kinabalu National Park.
