Malaysia has a tropical, humid climate with temperatures
averaging 86°F (30°C), though it is cooler in the highland areas.
The major change in seasons is marked by the arrival of the
monsoons that bring heavy downpours on the east coast of Peninsula
Malaysia, the northeastern part of Sabah and the western end of
Sarawak (from November to February). Boat trips to the islands do
not run during the height of the monsoon. The best time to visit
Malaysia is between April and October.
