Choosing What to Pack

When it comes to packing, remember that Malaysia has a hot and humid climate, so light cotton or linen clothing would be ideal. While shorts, t-shirts and tops, as well as swimwear are great options for beach runs, remember that this is a majority Muslim population, so more conservative clothing will be appropriate in public; this also applies to visiting religious sites where you have to cover bare shoulders and legs.
