Eastern Malaysia holidays

The east of Malaysia receives far fewer visitors than the more wellknown destinations in the west, and a visit here allows for some interesting off-the-beaten-track adventures. Spot wildlife and visit tribal communities in the Taman Negara rainforest, or head along the coast to discover pristine beaches, colourful night markets and river boat cruises in the mangroves to see fireflies at dusk. For those seeking an island getaway, the islands of Rawa and Tioman, off the east coast near Mersing, both have superb resorts with white sandy beaches, boat excursions and snorkelling over coral reefs.
