There are five term breaks in the year for schools throughout Malaysia and they vary from state to state. However, they fall roughly during the later part of the months of January (1 week), March (2 week), May (3 weeks), August (1 week), and October (4 weeks).

Bottled mineral water can be found almost everywhere, so take a bottle with you wherever you go to avoid dehydration since Malaysia is hot and can be congested at times.
It’s best to wear light clothing. If you’re going to enter mosques and temples, do wear long sleeves and loose pants.
