Best things to do and see in Malaysia

The time it will take to travel on flights to Malaysia from the United States is going to be somewhat different depending on your departure point in the United States as well as your arrival point in Malaysia. An example of a typical trip for a Malaysia flight would be to depart on cheap flights from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and arrive at Kuala Lumpur International (KUL) which you can do in about 23h. If instead, you are departing from the West Coast of the United States from an airport such as Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) you can expect a trip time by plane of about 19h and 10min to Kuala Lumpur International. A trip that takes off from Chicago O' Hare International Airport (ORD) can travel to a destination in Malaysia in about 26h and 25min with an arrival at Kuala Lumpur International.

While it certainly may seem unfortunate that you cannot get any direct flights from the United States to Malaysia there are still plenty of airports in the United States that offer one-stop service to Malaysia. From John F. Kennedy International Airport you can fly on Singapore Airlines on a one-stop flight to Kuala Lumpur International that has a layover at Singapore Changi (SIN). For those with tickets on flights from Chicago O' Hare International Airport, you can travel by plane on a one-stop flight to Kuala Lumpur International on Etihad Airways that offers a layover at Abu Dhabi International (AUH). If you are a traveler leaving from Los Angeles International Airport you can take a flight to Kuala Lumpur International on Singapore Airlines with a layover at Singapore Changi. Some other airports in the United States that offer one-stop service to Malaysia include San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), just to name a few other options.

If you have made the long journey to Malaysia from the United States and perhaps have arrived in a city like Kuala Lumpur and you are wondering how you can get to another major city in the country such as Kota Bharu there are quite a few options. The first option that is also the quickest option is to take a flight between these two cities that will let you travel between them in less than 3h. If you prefer a more leisurely mode of travel that is going to save you a fair amount of money over air travel, a good choice would be to take the bus service offered by several bus providers in the country including Ekspres Perdana and Mara Liner. Because there are so many different ways to travel between these two cities you can also combine bus and train routes with transfers available in cities such as Kuala Lipis and Gua Musang. One final option is to rent a car and drive yourself which you could do in about 6h or so but bear in mind that driving in Malaysia is going to be quite different from what you're probably used to plus you are may have issues with language barriers when trying to read signage and a good deal of this trip is going to be through winding mountainous terrain so take all that into account before heading out in your rental car.

The trip to Malaysia for citizens of the United States will require a passport and the passport needs to be valid for at least 180 days beyond your date of arrival. Your passport must have a blank page for an entry stamp upon arrival in Malaysia. If you're traveling as a tourist to Malaysia and you plan on staying in the country for less than 90 days you will not need a visa to travel there.
