Travel Time! 3 Activities to Do in Malaysia with Kids


Family holidays are different from what you might have previously done in your solo travels, trips with friends and romantic escapes with your partner. Now you have to consider your children’s needs and attention spans, at least if you want them to have fun too. So that means that long slogs in museums or bouncing from club to club are out of the question. Still, with kids, you’re able to see a different side of destinations like Malaysia, one that opens you up to the innocent and wonder-struck perspective of youngsters. Keep that great feeling going with these fun activities for the whole family to enjoy when you’re on vacation in Malaysia with kids.

1. Beach Days on Vacation in Malaysia

Many families can appreciate a day on the beach. Malaysia has many beautiful beaches, including Pasir Panjang Beach and Tanjung Rhu Public Beach. If it’s sunny and there’s a bar or restaurant nearby where you can grab food and refreshments, there’s little else you’ll need there. Make the most of sun, sea, and sand when in Malaysia with kids.

While the teens play in the water and on the soft sand, you can relax and forget about any worries back home. Open a paperback or listen to music, with those you love the most close by. Plan ahead for the day by packing books, a Bluetooth speaker, and sunscreen. Cover the whole family with sun lotion to help protect against the sun’s rays strong rays.

Along Malaysia’s dreamy coastline, you’ll find a variety of beaches. These beaches are a big reason why many people consider that country to be an amazing island getaway.

2. Shopping in Malaysia with Kids

Malaysia has something for kids and adults when it comes to shopping. There’s plenty of choices, whether you shop at a huge international mall in Kuala Lumpur, a small local fruit and vegetable market, or you head to a souvenir store. For children, it’s a chance to spend their little bit of pocket money on things they’ll cherish for many years. For many parents, meanwhile, it’s an opportunity to get beautiful handicrafts and art only available in the vacation spot.

Remember that a range of products, from electrical to clothing and art, are cheaper to source in Malaysia than in many other countries in the world. It’s a chance, therefore, to treat your family to bargains when hitting the shops.

3. Animal Watching

There might not be anything more thrilling to children – and, let’s be honest, to adults too – than going on a nature safari in Malaysia. In the thick jungle is everything from colorful birds and scurrying rodents to panthers. You’re going to love delving into Malaysia’s wildlife within the safe environment of a safari with an expert guide.

Any animal viewing experience while vacationing in Malaysia with kids will likely show you the exotic, colorful nature there. Take time during your trip to get into the jungle. And then go off the coast to snorkel above wonderfully colorful reefs. Show your kids the flora and fauna of Malaysia.

Final Words on Visiting Malaysia with Kids

A vacation in Malaysia with kids can be amazing, especially when it includes the kinds of activities listed above. When everyone has an unforgettable travel experience, it brings the family together. Sharing memories for a lifetime is well worth the trip.

If you could travel to any country, where would you go? What would you want to see there?
