Travel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Malaysia

Hello and welcome to our Malaysia travel blog. You will find all our Malaysia blog posts in this section of our website.

Maybe you found our Malaysia travel blog because you are considering a visit to South East Asia, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to Malaysia. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Malaysia.

We know Malaysia very well as we have both been travelling there for around thirty years – from our early backpacking days to work trips, to a renewed interest fuelled by more recent discoveries including Malaysia’s modernist and brutalist architecture, and street art.

Our Malaysia blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
