Malaysia is a beautiful place to visit and a great vacationing spot when it comes to planning a trip with kids. Although it is a common belief that underdeveloped countries cannot offer complete satisfaction when it comes to comfort and security, but Malaysia guarantees quality time with complete safety.

These are few of the places that you can visit with your children and plan activities:
- Sepilok Orangutan Wildlife
The dense forest makes it almost impossible to travel by road but you can take a series of domestic flights to reach there. The rehabilitation centre in Sepilok hosts around 70 orangutans. The success of the rehabilitation of orangutans led to the progress of sun bear reserve and rainforest discovery centre. Although the place is overly crowded the children are given the best viewing point.
- Kinabatangan River
Moving forward from the Sepilok, you start moving along the Kinabatangan River into the jungle to spot wildlife. You can take the boat safari along with your kids to spot the Proboscis monkeys and fireflies lighting up the river. The guides offer binoculars so that children can have a better view.
- The Borneo Rainforest Lodge
From there you are rested in the lodge that is located deep into the rainforest. It is comfortable and breath-taking. It also offers an outdoor pool, villas with luxurious chalets and a beautiful location.
After enjoying the natural beauty that Sabah has to offer, it is safe to say that you can now visit the coasts. Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa is a classic resort that is just 20 minutes away from the airport. There are several programs that take place especially for the children.
If you are planning to visit Malaysia with your family then you must take Sandakan tours.
