Pulau Langkawi

The island of Langkawi is home to some of the best beaches in Peninsular Malaysia. The island combines stretches of mountains and mangroves with glistening coastlines.

Sipadan Island

A tiny island near Semporna in Sabah is rated among the top diving regions in the world. You will not find accommodation or a lot of facilities around the island. Taking a tour during your trip would be recommended. The flight from Kota Kinabalu to Semporna and a one-hour boat ride to the turtles and barracuda swarms is worth it. After gaining protected status in 2002, fewer tourists will get a permit to visit the limestone pinnacle.
