Want to know more about some of Malaysia’s most gorgeous islands?

Many tourists to Malaysia concentrate on the capital and the more famous west coast highlights of Melaka, Cameron Highlands, Penang and Langkawi, but there is also the east coast which is fabulous in its own right and quite different to the west coast.

Long Beach, Redang Island from Laguna Redang
My first view of Long Beach on arrival at the Laguna Redang. Just breathtaking!

The islands found here really stand out. There are great beaches, untouched jungle, great marine life and more. If you’re a beach, nature, diver or tropical island lover, you’ll love these islands.

They aren’t as popular as the west coast islands of Penang and Langkawi, but this isn’t because they aren’t awesome. They just aren’t as well known and are a little trickier to get to.

In today’s podcast, I fix this! You’ll know all about these islands and will be all set to visit them, especially the big ones – Tioman, Redang and Perhentian Islands.

By the end of this podcast, you’ll definitely have these islands on your bucket list.
