Malaysia Single Friendly Vacations


  • Cameron Highlands

Why is Malaysia a great place for single/solo travellers?

Malaysia is a fantastic place for solo travellers as it has a strong tourism infrastructure - especially in the main hubs of Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Langkawi and Borneo. As English is widely-spoken throughout the country, asking for directions or assistance is not a problem. Malaysian locals are also known for being very friendly and welcoming. There are plenty of small group touring options available for travellers who may want to travel with others and make lasting friendships.

What are the top activities for solo travellers in Malaysia? 

The list of great activities for solo travelers in Malaysia is truly endless. The country offers something for everyone. Whether it is taking in some of the vibrant city highlights (or pub crawls) in Kuala Lumpur or experiencing a zipline adventure at the Langkawi UNESCO Global Geopark, the solo traveller will never lack great options. For solo travellers looking for a different way to experience the country, why not consider a self-drive itinerary where you can go at your own pace and make stops depending on your own interests.
