Top Beaches in Malaysia
The most popular beaches for Malaysia timeshares are on the islands of Langkawi, Perhentian and Tioman. Considered to have some of the best diving sites in the world, you can take a liveaboard safari. Delicious food is cheap and readily available on the streets of the cities with a selection of Chinese noodles, Indian dosa or spicy Malay dishes including the freshest seafood.
For a step back in time, visit the states of Sarawak and Sabah on Borneo. They offer isolated areas with indigenous tribes that are fast receding because of the growing cities. You will see crocodiles, the Rafflesia flower, the world’s largest proboscis monkeys and wild flora and fauna.
Great Outdoor Activities
Pangkor Island is not as wild and a great place for outdoor recreation. The island is circled with beautiful beaches and resorts and the interior has miles of hiking and biking trails through the magnificent rainforest. Pangkor Island is also famous for its restaurants.
Kota Kinabalu is the place to start if you want to visit Sabah and Borneo. Along with the beautiful beaches and water sports, it has an observatory, an aquarium, a marine park, the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park and kayaking and white water rafting. Malaysia claims to be Truly Asia and that is seen in the different religions in the area as well as cuisines. Kota Kinabalu is also a good place for Malaysia timeshares if you want to avoid the bustle of the major cities.
