April is one of the best months to be in Malaysia as both coastlines of the peninsula are expecting good weather. April sits within a transitional period between monsoons, meaning winds are light and showers are localised and infrequent.
Through the centre and up in the highlands, the rains are heavier but these are normally short lived and bring a welcome relief to the humidity.
Lowlands & Highlands
Kuala Lumpur, Malacca and Cameron Highlands
Cameron Highlands is experiencing higher rainfall than it's yearly average however this should not discourage you from visiting (avg temp: 20 °C). Further south the north-east monsoon gives Kuala Lumpur and Malacca some of their heaviest rainfall of the year but the downpours are short lived and can bring a welcome relief to the humid conditions (avg temp: 30 °C).
Langkawi, Penang, Pangkor
The islands of Langkawi and Penang are enjoying plenty of sunshine (avg temp: 31 °C). Pangkor Island is a little wetter however certainly not enough to discourage visiting (avg temp: 30 °C).
Kuantan, Tioman Island, Perhentian Islands, Terengganu, Redang and Kota Bharu
Visitor numbers are increasing as the east coast continues to head towards its peak season. Bright sunny days should be expected with the odd tropical down pour (avg temp of 30 °C).
