Best Volunteer Opportunities in Malaysia

Tzea Sawchuk - Volunteer in Sun Bear Conservation Project in Borneo, Malaysia
"I had an amazing time volunteering at the Sun Bear Conservation Centre. Spending time looking after all the bears needs was very fulfilling. I learned so much about the importance of the world’s smallest bear and how a change needs to be done for them to continue to survive in the Jungle."

Iara Tonidandel - Volunteer in Sun Bear Conservation Project in Borneo, Malaysia
"Volunteering challenges yourself, breaks concepts, makes us wear a different lens so we can understand where we are, what we need and what we can accomplish. In Malaysia, it was no different to me. I had an excellent opportunity and life change experience. I was welcomed, guided and felt part of a team of very generous and professional people."

Weekend Travel Options

While volunteering in Malaysia, you'll mostly be in Malacca or Borneo Region. Hence, the best idea would be to explore the nearby areas than traveling far off to Kuala Lumpur or other areas. In Malacca, you can visit A’Famosa Fort, St. Paul's Church, Malacca Butterfly & Reptile Sanctuary, Melaka Sultanate Palace etc. You can also explore Kota Kinabalu in the northern part of the island of Borneo. Make your travel bucket list and let us help you in the planning!

Kinabatangan River Cruise - During the Weekend, You Can Opt for a Day Trip and Go for the Kinabatangan River Cruise. This river has a length of 560 kilometers and stretches through half of Eastern Sabah. Alongside the riverbanks, there is an abundance of wildlife. During a river cruise, you will have a chance to spot the rare orangutan, the pygmy elephant, proboscis monkeys, and saltwater crocodiles.

Explore the Malacca city - Well, there are several colonial buildings and churches that you can explore in Malacca City. Visit the Christ Church, old Dutch Stadthuys, St. Paul's Cathedral etc., and soak in the city vibes.

Hike up the Kinabalu - When you're there in Borneo, how can you miss climbing Mt.Kinabalu? For those who don't wish to summit but would like to experience the natural beauty of Mt Kinabalu, can go till the base camp and gaze at nature's beauty at it keeps unfolding at every step.
