First of all, the visa is not required for Turkish citizens traveling to Malaysia for touristic purposes for up to 90 days. Thus, this can be another attractive reason to go to Malaysia, which is in the visa-free category for Turkish citizens.

You can reach Kuala Lumpur Airport in the capital, about an 11-hour flight from Istanbul airport, to reach Malaysia without transfer from Turkey. From Kuala Lumpur airport, central Kuala Lumpur can be reached in 50 minutes by taxi in normal traffic. Although airport taxis may seem the most expensive option to reach the center, they can still qualify as a lower-budget alternative compared to taxi prices in Europe or America. Another transportation option is the KLIA Express or transit metro, a high-speed train that goes to KL Central Station in the city in about half an hour. Additionally, you can take the airport bus service from the airport to Kuala Lumpur Central station in about 1 hour.

Kota Kinabalu Airport, which is located in the other half of the country’s apple, namely the eastern part, can be reached from SabihaGökçen Airport to Hamad (Doha) International Airport and Kuala Lumpur Airport in an average of 17 hours. You can reach the center, which is 8 kilometers north of Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia’s second busiest airport, by buses departing from the airport. In Kota Kinabalu, the bus network is frequently used for public transportation, and the surrounding islands can be visited by ferry. From Kota Kinabalu, you can choose direct domestic flights of 2 and a half hours to Kuala Lumpur, the capital on the other half of the apple.

Domestic flights in Malaysia are the most preferred transportation method due to the location of the country due to its two parts and because it provides transportation in shorter times. Since there is no ferry network connecting the peninsula Malaysia and eastern Malaysia separated by the South China Sea, the transportation between the two parts can best be by plane. Moreover, ferries are used to provide transportation to some coastal cities due to the fact that it is a huge sea that divides the country. The bus, light rail system trains, the monorail, and the suburban train consisting of the single rail line are among other public transportation alternatives that you can use throughout the country.

December to April is the best time to visit Malaysia. The country receives a lot of rain throughout the year, and the temperature and humidity are always high. The tropical monsoon climate leads to short-term rains in Malaysia, even in the driest season. So, no matter what season you go, don’t forget to take your umbrella. January and February, when the new year, Christmas, and Chinese New Year coincide, and the season from June to September are among the busiest.
