Top Three Things To Do In Malaysia During The Summer Holidays


Just because they’re home from school doesn’t mean your children should stop having new experiences. Do something extraordinary with them this summer holiday and give them an experience that’s fun, enriching and educational. Malaysia is filled with activities, attractions and events that will have your children learning and engaging while they have fun.

You may be wondering where to take them, and what to do with them. We know how hard it can be to find activities that aren’t just great for the little ones but the whole family too. To give you some guidance as you plan a fun-filled itinerary for you and your family, we’ve put together a short list of ideas. Read on and maybe you’ll find the start of a great day out.

Go for a day trip

Discover the natural beauty and sleepy tranquillity of Sekinchan, Selangor, just an hour and half by road from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur. Surrounded by fertile rice paddy fields and looking out over the blue waters of the Straits of Malacca, Sekinchan is an exquisite spot for a day trip for any KL family. Give your children a change of scenery and expose them to the greener parts of our beautiful country. Sekinchan also offers a number of other attractions; gaze up and you’re likely to see flocks of beautiful migratory birds, or pay a visit to the Sekinchan Wishing Tree and join thousands of others in writing your wish on a red ribbon and tying it to its ancient branches.

Explore Malaysia’s first enrichment mall

The School at Jaya One is unlike any of Malaysia’s other malls. Here, the focus is on providing for every member of the family. More than a third of the establishments at The School are dedicated to learning, teaching everything from robotics to music, gym, dance and language. In addition, The School has all the usual specialist retail outlets, delicious food and beverage stands and fitness institutions that you would expect at any fully-featured mall. Pick up a new outfit and a new skill all in the same visit.

Go dining as family

Cap off your day out as a family with a meal out together at one of the many award-winning family-friendly restaurants that dot Malaysia. Places like Ticklish Ribs with its comic book-themed atmosphere and generously sized meatballs and pork sandwiches, or Secret of Louisiana with its Creole-inspired jambalaya, grilled chicken and sausage deliver great food in a kid-friendly environment. Family-friendly doesn’t mean that the food at these restaurants is anything less than extraordinary, and many of these places offer free or low-cost dining for little ones, making them an economical choice too.
