Malaysia Backpacking – The best sights when backpacking Malaysia.
Malaysia is a great country for backpackers. To visit Malaysia you need a passport valid for 6 months. Visitors from most countries are granted visa-free entry. June-July are the best months for backpacking in Malaysia since these are the driest months. During rainy season which is typically from March-April and November-December Malaysia becomes more quiet. As most counties in Southeast Asia you can travel on a $25 budget. If you are on a tight budget you can also travel for much less.
