Climate

Malaysia experiences climate common for the tropics due to its close location to the Equator. Visitors can experience high temperatures and the humid climate as well as rain, which could be considered constants all year round. With daytime temperatures averaging from 32 to 34 degrees Celsius, the afternoon showers, which are expected during the conference period, will bring great relief to the humid conditions. We advise attendees to keep hydrated by drinking lots of water.
