If you want to go scuba diving in Malaysia, you're in luck because the country boasts some fantastic dive sites that are noted for their biodiversity.  

    Jet skiing: Jet skiing is a fantastic way to spend time in the water and is perhaps one of the most popular water sports in the world. With the wind in your hair, you may rush along the waves. It's a thrilling sensation that you won't get from many other activities. If you're searching for a fun water sport to do on the Malaysian beaches, jet skiing is the way to go. 

    Wakeboarding:  Wakeboarding is an excellent choice if you want to participate in one of the most popular water sports nowadays. Because of its beautiful beaches, Malaysia is an excellent location for this adventurous activity. If you are trained and desire an adrenaline rush, you must try one of the fastest increasing water sports. 

    Kayaking: Kayaking on the waves of Malaysia's beaches is a great option for people who prefer a slower pace than adrenaline-pumping water activities. Kayaking or canoeing, on the other hand, is an activity for the sporty and fit because it requires you to paddle or push. This is a delightful pastime that is a welcome departure from everyone's usual high-speed sports.

Saw many places like central market and little India and we could not stop taking countless pictures in the different spots.Must say, I was worried about the language thing, but the guide was so fluent in English, he explained everything to us in detail and we faced no trouble during our KL city of lights tour
I still can’t believe that I am back home. It was a great week in Malaysia. Got very good service from the people at Thrillophilia. I highly recommend them for your International trips

Thrillophilia orgainised everything! Our hotels, the guides, the driver and an air conditioned car. Everything was amazing and was on time. A big thumbs up to the team for such arrangements.
We had a trip of a lifetime. Thrillophilia was very accommodating and the team made sure everything was perfect. We can’t say enough about our Drivers – they kept us safe and comfortable and were sure to point out and stop at sites
