When to go
The weather in Malaysia is tropical, so it is hot and humid almost all year round. In Georgetown, the dry season is between November and March, with the remaining months being the rainy season. During the rainy season there are regular heavy downpours, storms, and showers, although they are often short. After the rain, it usually dries out quickly, so you can still get out and about without too much disruption. The humidity levels at this time, though, can be incredibly high. Baby powder is a good way to try and feel a bit more comfortable in the sticky heat.
