When to visit
The country has an equatorial climate, making it warm year round with temperatures varying little from the 30C mark and showers year-round. The northeast monsoon, or rainy season, particularly affects the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia and Sarawak, with heavy rain from late November to mid-February.
What to pack
It can get hot and sticky, with humidity high year-round, so pack plenty of light breezy clothing, however given this is a fairly conservative and Muslim society, dress appropriately around sites of worship and public places. Rainforest covers 75% of the country so if you plan on discovering it trekking or hiking, take the right footwear.
