Malaysia weather & when to go: April

April overview

April sits within a transitional period between monsoons, meaning winds are light and showers are localised and infrequent. Through the centre of peninsula Malaysia and up in the highlands, the rains are heavier but these are normally short lived and bring a welcome relief to the humidity.
