It's monsoon area between Oct and Feb. I was there in Feb this year and it wasn't that bad. We got some rain in the evening which cools down the day a bit but it will not rain everyday.

Kuala Lumpur...

Places like Kuala Lumpur don't get the real effects of the monsoon. Yes, we get the occasional rain in Jan ( and the amount of rainfall varies year by year ) but it's a blessing to cool down the temperature. The only thing about rain in cities like KL is the horrendous traffic that follows. Otherwise, shouldn't be an issue with visitors.
