You Need To Know The Following Information Before Starting

We have compiled the following information with great care & faith to help you prepare for your holidays in Malaysia. We feel that it is worthwhile for you to read this dossier before your trip. However, this serves as a guideline only and some of the information may vary during your travel period. Come prepared and you will have a great time in Malaysia.
Passport & Visa
  • Please ensure that your passport is valid for more than 6 months before you travel.
  • Most countries do not require a visa to Malaysia if the stay is less than 1 to 3 months.
  • Please refer to your nearest Malaysia embassy or consulate to check or visit the Malaysian Immigration Department Or Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Malaysia.
Safety And Security

Many national governments provide a regularly updated advice service on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information before departure. Always be wary of your personal belongings when you travel through Malaysia or anywhere in the world.

Packing Your Suitcase

Malaysia is a warm country and even if you have a trip to Cameron Highlands, you do not require warm clothing – a light jacket or cardican will dp for the evenings. If you are joining the Mount Kinabalu Climb, you should bring a windbreaker and a good pair of trekking shoes. Remember allowance for travelling on economy class is 20 kg and 30 kg for business class on Asian carriers. Low cost carrier and like Air Asia and MAS Wings have their own restriction on baggage.

So bring along light & comfortable clothes and comfortable walking shoes. Although we get a fair bit of rain here, it is not necessary to bring a raincoat (unless you are on a jungle trekking journey) or an umbrella. The tropical rain usually lasts for an hour or so. If you need one, there is always one available at the nearby seven eleven. It is about RM 13.00 only.

Money Matters

We recommend the use of cash (Malaysia Ringgit). Money changers are available iin all major cities.

Major credit cards are accepted in most shops and banks but they may charge a 2-4% transaction fee. Visa and MasterCards are useful for cash advances. ATM's are widely available and the Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) is used in Sabah & Sarawak. Please note that RM is more commonly used in Malaysia than MYR to denote Ringgit Malaysia.

Travel Insurance

Our tours do NOT include travel insurance. We cannot be held responsible or liable for loss, damage, or theft of personal luggage and belongings, nor held liable for personal injury, accident or illness. Please ensure that you have yourself and your belongings adequately insured before your departure.

It is advisable to take an adequate coverage for loss of deposit, cancellation charges, curtailment costs, medical expenses, loss or damage to baggage and loss of travellers cheques.

When you join an adventure tour like Mountain Climb or scuba diving, you must sign a liability waiver before you are allowed to commence. You should get your insurance company to cover for full medical, emergency evacuation and repatriation cover for the period of time you are away.

Travel Documents & Vouchers

When you book a tour, you will be issued with a Confirmation Itinerary.

Please ensure that all the services which you have booked and paid for are shown on your travel documents and that all names have been spelled correctly. If you have booked additional services like extra nights' accommodation, transfers or excursions, please make sure that these are shown and that you have been issued with a voucher for these services. It is always a good idea to make a photocopy of your passport and bring along passport sized photos. Transfer vouchers are not necessary unless advise in advance.

Driving License & Scuba Dving

For scuba Diving, you will need to bring your dive certificate or log. Other things to bring for diving will be highlighted in the proposal. An international driving license is preferred although most car companies will accept a foreign driving license. Driving age limit is between 23-65 years. We drive on the left side.
