Malaysia Airlines launches new campaign

Discover Malaysia and its popular tourist destinations with Malaysia Airlines’ latest Free Side Trip* offering. 


Whether the goal is to immerse in local cultural, explore hidden gems or relax and unwind, take advantage of the Free Side Trip deal and visit one of the five destinations below:


Kota Bharu


Johor Bahru:

Located at the tip of the Malay Peninsula, Johor Bahru offers a mix of culture and city exploration. Take a tour of Istana Besar, visit the Old Chinese Temple, walk along Jalan Tan Hiok Nee or if you need to entertain the kids, opt for Legoland Malaysia and the Angry Birds Theme Park.

Kota Bharu

One of the most traditional places in the country, Kota Bharu offers a plethora of tours including the World War II Museum and Istana Jahar royal residence. There’s an optional boat ride down the Galas River along with the opportunity to ride on the Jungle Railway or relax on Irama Beach.


Alor Setar 

One of the most important cities on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, Alor Setar offers architectural treasures and is home to two of Malaysia’s most renowned leaders.



One of the few seaside towns in Malaysia, Kuantan is a tourist hub with hidden gems from the modern Sultan Ahmad Shah State Mosque to Sungai Pandan Waterfalls.
