Very nice, a 'safe' exotic place to go IYKWIM. Something of everything there - dynamic cities, lovely beaches, jungle, mountains.

I've stayed in/around Kuala Lumpur a couple of times and I've been to Sarawak (Malaysian Borneo). Went there childless, but imagine it would be very doable with kids - clean, modern, reliable transport etc. And the best bit - cheap - you can stay in a 5 star hotel in KL for about £60 a night.

We had 3 nights in Penang about 3 years ago when DD was 10 months old (stopover on way to Oz). Had a brilliant time. Hotel lovely; food great. Couldn't really go in the sea around there tho.

We went to Pangkor Laut (island off the coast of peninsular Malaysia) and Sarawak (Malaysan Borneo) on honeymoon <<sigh>> and keep saying we must go back with the DCs when they are a bit older.

Malaysia must be my favourite country in the whole world! It's beautiful, the people are very friendly (they're also very good with children), the weather is great and, as MrsSprat says, there's something for everyone - beach, city, jungle, mountains, islands... Have a lovely holiday!

Langkawi is also beautiful, have been twice and I don't normally venture back anywhere more than once!

Have done weekend break in KL, last year, followed by a week in Langkawi, and then this year, a week in Phuket (technically in Thailand, but similar). Fantastic, both.
