Would it be advisable to go to east cost islands in malaysia (perinthians islands) on the first week of february as i have heard that it will be raining that time.

Thanks

Hi,

Yes, its still in the Monsoon Season. If you still want to visit it there, try this website Perhentian Islands and look for Mohsin Chalets on the Perhentian Kecil.
Its the only resort operating during monsoon season.;)

Other than Perhentian, Tioman now is getting popular among surfers from overseas. They stay on Tioman during Monsoon Season to surf there due to big waves. Maybe you can try if you are a surfer.

I had same concerns last year, but anyhow I decided to go for it ... it was in 2nd week of Feb, and it was just AWESOME...

only issue I faced was speed boat rent, it had to be 30MYR, but in Feb as there were not many tourists, they charged us 60MYR...

Not many hotels were open then, but there was a new setup called Lemon Grass, they gave hut for 10MYR/night.. and it was clean .... and they had this board game that all of us tenants used to play till late night ...

Cheers & have a safe trip...
