Malaysia weather overview
Malaysia comprises the southern part of the Malay Peninsular and the states of Sarawak and Sabah which are part of Borneo. The country has an equatorial climate and 75 per cent of its land area is tropical rainforest. This makes it hot, steamy and wet throughout the year with much of its rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms. The southwest (from April to September) and northeast (November to February) monsoon winds do much to disperse the sticky heat and alternate to produce a double rainy season. The heaviest rain is at the time of changeover of monsoon winds around March to April and October. The coasts exposed to the northwest monsoon tend to be wetter than those exposed to the southwest monsoon, and rainfall across the country varies according to the prevailing monsoon winds. Slightly cooler weather is to be found up in the hills but this is often marred by heavy cloud and high humidity.
What to pack for Malaysia weather
Take light clothes with slightly warmer clothing if going to the hill regions, and go prepared for rain at any time of the year.
