Family Holidays in Malaysia


Malaysia is a perfect family destination. Whether you’re looking for nature exploration, exciting cities, beautiful beaches, amazing food or cultural highlights, you’ll find them here. Discover a luxury family holiday to Malaysia with Lightfoot Travel.

Tour ideas

The whole family will adore venturing to Langkawi - Malaysia’s island paradise. Spend a few days at your leisure here, exploring the natural beauty. Take a boat trip around the archipelago, stopping to see caves and waterfalls or spot marine life, kayak through the mangrove or hike into the tropical rainforest.

Back on the mainland, enjoy a guided tour of the Cameron Highlands, where you can visit strawberry farms and tea plantations set into the lush hillsides.

Things to do

Wildlife abounds in Malaysia and families can hike, bike and raft through ancient forests, meeting orangutans, monkeys and pygmy elephants. For a luxurious beach holiday, the soothing green seas and white sand beaches of Langkawi will not disappoint.

Malaysia’s buzzing cities are awash with sights and sounds to explore together. From George Town in Penang to Malacca, you’ll find heaps of history, colonial architecture, local customs and delicious street food. Or, breathe in the fresh air of the Genting Highlands after taking a cable car up to the mountain peak.

Places to visit

Malaysia loves its theme parks, and children love visiting them. Head to Legoland in Johor Bahru, or the newly opened Movie Animation Park Studios in Ipoh for action and adventure. There’s simply no room for boredom at Sunway Lagoon, the ultimate adventure park, while the water park at the Lost World of Tambun provides hours of entertainment.

In the lively capital, Kuala Lumpur, kids will be thrilled by the glass monolith of the 88-story Petronas Twin Towers and the lift that shoots guests up to the midpoint in a blistering 41 seconds. The sky bridge that links the two towers doubles as a superb viewing platform of the city below.
