Hi every one, I am planned to visit Malaysia. Can any one tell me When is the best time to visit Malaysia?

Jeez. I can't believe I wrote the above. Musta been in a bad mood.
Maybe I was thinking: any website that Google turns up on Malaysia will have a WHEN TO GO section. But that is no excuse for getting smart-ass with martina. Maybe like a lot of us, she was thinking: well I've read the general info - let's see what travelfish members' individual experiences are.
Thing is, the best time to visit Malaysia depends on which factors are most important to you - good weather on the west coast/east coast/Eastern Malaysia (nth Borneo) etc, best festival times, best times to avoid crowds, nicest time for trekking - and so on.
As a beaches and islands man I tend to go mainly between April and October when the weather on the east peninsular coast (which has the best islands and beaches IMHO) is best. I also always google for Malaysian and Singaporean school/public holidays because those times can get pretty crowded on the islands etc.
Kuala Lumpur and the west coast are good destinations all year round but tend to be driest & sunniest between December and March. At any point there is the chance of a short, sharp downpour but these can be welcome as they reduce the humidity.

I also planning to Malaysia, my classmate was there for study, she recommended the Sabah on the Borneo island. But a little worry about the safety. :
