Malaysia weather & when to go: July

Malaysia July weather overview

July is a very similar story to June with the east coast of the peninsula enjoying plenty of sunny, dry days and the west coast islands experiencing hot and humid conditions, interspersed with short, intense downpours. This is considered peak season and so visitor numbers to Malaysia are at their highest during this month.

July’s weather in detail

Lowlands & Highlands

Kuala Lumpur, Malacca and Cameron Highlands

Through the centre of peninsula Malaysia and in both Kuala Lumpur and Malacca you can expect low monthly rainfall although short tropical showers are likely in the afternoon. The region experiences an average temperature of 29 °C, lower in the Cameron Highlands due to the altitude at an average of 20 °C.

East Coast

Kuantan, Tioman Island, Perhentian Islands, Terengganu, Redang and Kota Bharu

The good news continues on the beaches along the east coast with plenty of sunshine and blue skies expected throughout July. This is coupled with perfect sea conditions meaning visitor numbers are high, particularly at weekends (avg temp: 30 °C).

West Coast

Langkawi, Penang, Pangkor

The south-west monsoon continues to blow over the western coastline bringing with it heavier afternoon thunderstorms and choppy sea conditions, however, downpours tend to be short-lived and sunshine is never far behind (avg temp: 32 °C).
