Rain is expected between November and February in East Malaysia and along the east coast of West Malaysia. May through September is a relatively dry period.
Crowd InformationPeople visit Malaysia throughout the year, but many come for major events such as the Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix in April, Colors and Flavors of Malaysia in July, and the Merdeka Day (Independence) celebrations in August.
Closure InformationMost hotels, shops, and attractions remain open throughout the year. However, some hotels may close during the monsoon season.
