MALAYSIA CLIMATE AND WEATHER GUIDE
There are two distinct parts of Malaysia, separated from each other by the South China Sea: West and East Malaysia. The local climate is equatorial and characterised by the annual southwest monsoons (April to October) and northeast monsoons (October to February).

Dust particles from forest fires on nearby Sumatra Island sometimes create a phenomenon known as the haze. This usually lasts for 1 to 2 weeks. In 2006, the effects from the haze started in early July and lasted to October.

TRANSPORT:
Rail, coach, taxi and ferry are the popular modes of transport throughout Malaysia.

ELECTRICITY: 
240 Volts / 50 Hz

Adaptor Type G = This plug has three rectangular prongs that form a triangle

MONEY:
The ringgit is the currency of Malaysia. It is divided into 100 sen (cents) and its currency code is MYR (Malaysian Ringgit). The ringgit is issued by the Bank Negara Malaysia.
 

LANGUAGE:
Malay is the official language of Malaysia.
Malaysian English is a form of English used and spoken in Malaysia as a second language.

FOOD:
Rice tends to be a staple food in Malaysia as in most countries in the region. The rice eaten in Malaysia tends to be the local variety of rice or fragrant rice from Thailand, its northern neighbour.
