Malaysia has hundreds of islands scattered around thousands of kilometers of coastline.
Celebrity-standard resorts, world-class diving and metropolitan city centers allure tourists. Others are uninhabited with long stretches of empty coastline.
Travelers usually include both Langkawi Island and Penang Island on their Malaysian itineraries.
The adventurous go to the dozens along Peninsula Malaysia’s east coast. Fewer still explore Sabah’s tropical islands and islets in Borneo.
