A visit to Malaysia means visiting the different islands that lay beautifully scattered across its landscape. Malaysia is blessed with islands that have something to offer for every kind of tourist—the hippie, the one seeking luxury and the backpacker and more. Know your type and mark this island onto your itinerary list.

Travelling from one part of Malaysia is made easier by the many bus routes that will drop you off at the ferry pick-up points. For more information visit wikipedia.

For the hippie: Perhentians Island
The Perhentian Islands are two islands named Pulau Perhentian Kecil (Small Perhentian Island) and Pulau Perhentian Besar (Large Perhentian Island). The Malay name Perhentian is translated as “place to stop” and this is exactly what these two islands were for traders travelling between Malaysia and Bangkok in years gone by. These islands are still a gorgeous place to stop and rest today, albeit for tourists disconnecting from the stress and routine of everyday life and not for weary seafaring traders. These islands are basically a small group of coral fringed islands located off the coast of Peninsular Malaysia in the state of Terengganu which is not quite far from the Thai island. The place attracts more travellers as it has cheaper accommodations while the larger island known as the Besart island is a little more on the expensive side. It caters to more families and is relatively quite secluded allowing you to have your privacy. Both the islands belong to a protected marine park which essentially means that fishing and collecting coral and lilttering is strictly prohibited here. The best time to visit these islands is during the months of eastern monsoon which is limited to the period between the beginning of March until late October.  After October till February the seas can be very rough making it an unfavourable destination for swimming.

Tor the wildlife lovers: Tioman Island

Tioman is in Pahang ("East Coast") within the Mersing Marine Park, which contains fewer commercial islands such as Sibu Island. The primary gateway Mersing is in Johor ("South"). Tioman's beaches were depicted in the 1958 movie South Pacific as "Bali Hai". In the 1970s, Time magazine selected Tioman as one of the world’s most beautiful islands. The densely forested island is still sparsely inhabited.

Also it is surrounded by numerous white coral reefs, making it a haven for scuba divers from around the region. The natural environment and wildlife of the place will leave you stunned and it is one of the major factors contributing to its popularity. The first mammals to greet you will be the giant monitor lizards!

For the heritage-seekers: Penang Island

Look no farther than Penang if culture, history and tradition is what you seek to find on your Malayan holiday. And this is topped by the fact that it is also one of the best places to sample the local delicacies of Southeast Asia.
