Malaysia in May


Malaysia in May : Travel budget & tourist seasons.


Budget your trip depending on your departure time.

Beyond the tourist season (low, medium or high season) of the destination country, prices of your flight, hotel or all-inclusive stays may also vary depending on the demand in your country (our rates are evaluated from western Europe).

Thus, from western Europe, a stay will often be more expensive for a start during the school holidays.

In May, here's what you can expect on average:

  • All-inclusive stays: 1841 € / week

  • Round-trip flight: 600 €

  • Tourist season: low

Malaysia: Climate & Weather


The climate is equatorial in type, lightly tempered by the sea breeze. The temperature is high throughout the year with an almost permanently high humidity. The sea water temperature is generally higher than 25°C.

The winter monsoon period is dominant between November and February with heavy rain, especially in the areas to the east. The summer monsoon period is from August to November and brings rain to the west accompanied by strong winds.

Take these differences into account when planning your visit by avoiding the east of the country between the months of October to February. With regards to the rest of the country, any time is a good time to visit apart from the month of Ramadan when everything goes slower than usual.
