What to do: Located in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur, FRIM is one of the best Malaysia holiday destinations in Klang Valley. Being the country’s largest secondary forest, this lush forestry would be an ideal place to take the kids for some adventure among the trees. There are several interesting activities to do in FRIM such as camping, birdwatching, jungle trekking, jogging, and cycling. If your goal is to give the kids an educational experience, you can visit the insect house and herbal botanical garden.

We recommend you take a cool dip in the water and have a relaxing picnic with the bunch whilst enjoying the sounds of nature. Or perhaps you could challenge the children to a stone-stacking competition!

What to note: As the monsoon season is heaviest in November, we suggest you check the weather report and be careful when you’re in the water when you visit this Malaysia holiday destination. There are many shallow parts you can safely dip in but it’s best to be safe!


2. Sunway Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh, Perak

What to do: Why not take a drive out of town to Sunway’s Lost World of Tambun? With your spacious 7-seater SUV, Outlander, you’ll have plenty of cabin room to pack the kids and some clothes, and head to this entertainment haven. That will surely have them excited! The convenient split-folding seats allow versatile arrangement of space to fit in all the swim and water-play gear too.

Featuring a waterpark, an amusement park, an adventure park, hot spring pools, and a petting zoo, you’ll be able to keep the children occupied for hours. With many things to do with your loved ones, there is no doubt that Sunway Lost World of Tambun is one of the best Malaysia holiday destinations to visit.

What to note: There are special promo deals on their website that include accommodation for the whole family that’s worth checking out. Some packages also include breakfast, to make it that easier for you!

What to do: Kuala Selangor houses one of the biggest colonies of these glittering bugs, and it’s an experience to be enjoyed by the whole family. You can reach this Malaysia holiday destination within an hour drive from the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. Take your kids with you without worrying about their safety during your ride with the built-in ISOFIX system for all the rear seats.

The spectacle of these shining little insects is usually enjoyed at night after 7.30 pm by boat ride along the mangrove forest. Before this, you can take the kids for a stroll by the beach and enjoy a hearty seafood dinner by the bay.

What to note: It’s easy to get to this Malaysia holiday destination using Google Maps or Waze with your Mitsubishi Outlander and there are no parking fees to pay at the park. You’ll just have to purchase the boat tickets.


4. Cameron Highlands, Pahang

What to do: Get away from the city and enjoy some green views of the tea plantation hills in Cameron Highlands. It is one of the best Malaysia holiday destinations due to its beautiful scenery and comfortable weather. The journey will take a while, but with the Rest Reminder feature of your Mitsubishi Outlander, you know you and your kids are in reliable hands. Sipping tea may not be your kids’ idea of fun, but you can enjoy a cuppa while they play in the open gardens.

Then, head over to the strawberry farms to pick some fresh berries, the bee farm for some sweet honey, and the Mossy Forest for a short trek. This will be an unforgettable experience for the young ones!

What to note: Check the suitability of tours and activities in Cameron Highlands based on your children’s ages. Also note that the Mossy Forest can get very slippery during the wet season, so if you plan to go, make sure your family brings the right footwear.
