Malaysiahas many lovely beaches and islands. If you are a beach lover thenyou will have a good time there. Here is the list of top beaches inMalaysia:
[ulist][li]Datai Beach, Langkawi Island

[/li][/ulist][ulist][li]Tioman Island beaches
Don't forget the Perhentian Islands! They are beautiful, and there is a turtle conservation project there too! I volunteered there last year, and am returning as a coordinator if you want to know more about the program message me and i can send some brochures. Its a great way to spend some time on these paradise islands. Scuba diving is also wicked there!
If you're not into a beach holiday, best place to visit in Malaysia is Penang. Hopefully, you are traveling soon and can make it for Thaipusam Festival from Jan 19-21, and Chinese New Year the first two weeks of February.
Have a great trip!

Here is a little info about the turtle project:
Become a Turtle Volunteer for Help Our Penyu (HOPE) a community based sea turtle conservation project on the beautiful islands of Perhentian. Not only will you help to safeguard 2 out of the 4 major nesting beaches in Perhentian but also contribute to spreading conservation awareness amongst tourists and the local community. Even just coming for 2 weeks can make a big impact helping to improve the childrens' English or marine awareness so they can become future turtle guides. Your visit will inject RM1000 into the village economy (2 months salary for most of the villagers) encouraging the villagers to protect their sea turtles population.
I am one of the volunteer coordinators based in the village for this season, please feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions and would like more info about volunteering with HOPE.
