Malaysia or Thailand

Malaysia or Thailand

Hi guys, I want to go on a weeklong family tour with my parents in South East Asia around Dec. Which one would you recommend between Malaysia and Thailand. Which one would be a better place for sightseeing and spending a memorable vacation. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Both are very popular destinations in December, average high and low temps are similar ranging from approx 27C to 31C ... Chance of rain a little higher in Malaysia, but weather cant really be predicted this far in advance.. Choice is yours really, depends on what you want to see/do

Both are wonderful.

For a relaxed vacation we like Penang in Malaysia at one of the beach resorts.

For me, i think i prefer thailand. More of shopping and sight seeing. Malaysia feels like a place i often go for a retreat. Moreover, it is cheaper to go thailand.

@Harvey.. I agree. Especially as all the posts were made at 2 to 4 minute intervals, without regard to the original poster's actual questions. As the posts have now been reported , it's up to the TA Mods to now decide whether to delete the posts or potentially close the account.
