From mega-diverse jungles packed with a high number of endemic species to colonial towns and breathtaking tropical beaches, Malaysia has it all. This culturally rich country in Southeast Asia has a thriving culinary scene, an affordable cost of living and modern cities with every home comfort you need. 

The visa policy of Malaysia isn’t strict at all; In fact, almost all passport holders can get between 14 and 90-day free entry. If you are from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Cuba, Peru, United States, Uruguay, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Venezuela or other approved jurisdictions you can enter Malaysia without a visa. 

Home of special, respectful, friendly, and humble people, plus jaw-dropping nature wonders, Malaysia is definitely a nation that should be part of everyone’s bucket list and here’s why.

Believe it or not, $1000 U.S. dollars in Malaysia go a long way, and if you are a savvy traveler, you can survive up to a month. Guesthouses and budget-friendly accommodation often cost less than $25 per night, while adventures and trips can usually cost you $50 dollars. Meals are usually only a few dollars. Public transportation is affordable and domestic flights have a similar price tag to a long-distance bus in Malaysia, making any travel quick and convenient.
