Filming in Malaysia
Being a unique country known to be an amalgamation of multi cultural influences, Malaysia is one of the most pleasant and hassle-free countries to film in Asia. The country boasts a rapidly developing economy and yet still retains some of its old world charms. Aside from the Western-style industrialization that is abundantly clear in its big cities, Malaysia has some of the most superb beaches, mountains and national parks in Asia.
Being a tropical country, the country is blessed with lush green landscape alongside diverse flora and fauna. A nature-lover’s dream filming location, the country is also counter-balanced by its equally magnificent urban skyline. Lighting is also a plus point as the climate there is hot and sunny all year long so you are going to have abundant sunshine pretty much whenever you film.
Temperatures in Malaysia waver in-between 32°C during the day and 24 °C at night. Humidity is high at 80 percent. The temperature in the highlands is slightly lower.
