#1 The Weather
Let us remind you that Malaysia is a tropical country and by that, there’s no winter/ autumn/ spring season, it’s either hot/ scorching hot or raining season. Those are the only options you’re going to get. So what we would like to recommend you bring is LOTS AND LOTS of sunscreen and an umbrella or waterproof jacket.
#2 English is like our second language
Just so you know, if you’re travelling to Malaysia, basic knowledge of the English language would be enough for you to move around in Malaysia. Malaysian’s have learned how to read, write and talk in English since they were 7 years old. So yeah, we’re quite the linguist over here, don’t worry and ask us for the direction we won’t bite.
