Weather and Climate
Malaysia has a tropical climate, meaning it is quite warm all year round. With temperatures ranging from 21 degrees Celsius to 32 degrees Celsius, you’ll want to pack light clothes, hats or head coverings and sunscreen. The weather is divided into two different monsoon regimes – the Southwest Monsoon from late May through August, and the Northeast Monsoon from November to March. During these times, it is normal to expect heavy rainfall – relief from this accumulation is expected during the off season in September and October.
