BEST TIME TO TRAVEL MALAYSIA
A rain shower in Malaysia normally doesn't take longer than 2 hours. But these showers aren't little, if you end up in one prepare to get wet! Even though there's not really a dry season, the biggest change to get wet in the East is from November till Februari and in the West from September till December.
