Six Ideas for Themed Tourism in Malaysia

Visit a quaint village to feel a slower pace of life or explore the darkest pages of the human history – there are a lot of opportunities to make your Malaysian holiday–2019 an unforgettable one.

Rural tourism & agrotourism
Malaysia is dotted with quaint villages even if you could never guess it exploring the bustling streets and neighbourhoods of Kuala Lumpur. Staying at local homes and/or working on a farm with farmers gives you an insightful experience of authentic indigenous culture.

Cruise tourism
Cruise tourism is on the rise worldwide and Malaysia is no exception. There are currently 12 ports in Malaysia including Langkawi, Penang, and Port Klang in Selangor which can accommodate cruise ships. It is a good idea to board a cruise calling to the ports of the neighbouring countries like Indonesia, Thailand or Singapore, too.

Self-drive holiday
A road trip around Malaysia is a great way to spend your holiday. Roads as well as the road infrastructure are great and driving your own car gives you a lot of flexibility. Some of the most popular destinations for this type of vacation include Ipoh, Melaka, Temerloh, Kemaman, Kampar and Yong Peng.

Dark tourism
Interested in the darkest pages of the history? Visit a human trafficking camp in Wang Kelian, Perlis, or have a look at the Tsunami Gallery in Kota Kuala Muda, Kedah.

Welness holiday
Welness tourism is the fastest growing sector of tourism globally. While you can tailor-make your trip, there are places which offer full packages – come and enjoy. For the latter option check the Chateau Wellness Resort in Pahang and Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat in Ipoh, for instance.

Food trails
Malaysian cuisine is a hot-pot of regional and international culinary traditions. A foodie adventure in Malaysia promises a lot of wonderful discoveries. Penang, Ipoh, Melaka and Sabah are some of the most obvious – and best! – destinations to indulge in gastronomy in Malayisa.
