Malaysia is one of South-East Asia’s most vibrant and successful economies – after benefiting from years of political stability and strong industrial growth it is now the world’s largest producer of computer disk drives and rubber and is one of the largest producers of timber.

What’s the best time to call Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur sits just over 6,500 miles from London and it takes over thirteen hours to fly there – so no way anyone is doing face-to-face business meetings in a day. And, just like neighbouring Singapore, it’s eight hours ahead – a full working day – so factor this in to any conference calls you set up.
Where is Malaysia?
Located in Southeast Asia, Malaysia is essentially divided into two parts. The Malaysian peninsula is connected to the mainland and borders Thailand. It is also linked to and neighbouring Singapore by a causeway and bridge. Malaysia’s island section borders Indonesia and Brunei.
What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice on traveling to Malaysia?
If you’re travelling to Malaysia, check the latest travel advice where Covid-19 restrictions are concerned and be prepared for plans to change at the last minute.
There is a risk of petty crime, especially bag snatching. Currently, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all but essential travel to all islands off the coast of eastern Sabah from Kudat to Tawau, including (but not limited to) Lankayan, Mabul, Pom Pom, Kapalai, Litigan, Sipadan and Mataking.
Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Malaysia. Attacks could happen anywhere, including in places visited by foreigners. Kidnappings are also possible. Be vigilant, monitor local media and follow the advice of the local authorities.
Take sensible precautions to protect yourself from petty crime. Avoid carrying valuables and take particular care of your passport whilst walking, in aircraft, cafes, airport and railway terminals, and hotel rooms.
Do not open your hotel room door to strangers, especially late at night. This applies particularly to women travelling alone. Credit card and ATM fraud is widespread. Take great care when using your card.
You can drive in Malaysia with an International Driving Permit (IDP) for up to one year from your date of entry into Malaysia. You’ll need to get one of these from a Post Office.
If you need any of the emergency services, 999 is the number for the Malaysian Emergency Response Service (MERS)
