Malaysia is in no shortage of activities. The peninsula has rich flora and fauna making it a desired place for nature enthusiasts and the Mount Kinabalu in the eastern state of Sabah is South East Asia's tallest. The main peninsula is also rich in forest and jungle and several tour operators offer trekking or mountain biking trips both on the mainland and in the states of Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo.
Due to the warm climate and its close proximity to equator, the waters around Malaysia offers some truly stunning diving experiences. Langkawi, Sabah, Perhentian and Tioman all offer world class diving where sharks, turtles and rays are spotted daily. The waters are often so clear and the reefs to close to the surface that snorkelling will also open up to the magnificent underwater world. All of the islands have diving schools where visitors can take their introductory diving course or subsequent courses.
