Malaysia Filming Locations
The filming location options in Malaysia are extensive and truly unique. The Kuala Lumpur urban area, Penang Island, and the further off locations such as Sarawak and Sabah are just a few of the vast stunning sites available. And many of these locations are accessible directly by air from Kuala Lumpur or other SE Asian travel hubs.
Kuala Lumpur is the capital city and the production hub. It provides an endless amount of urban landscapes with Asian and western atmospheres including rooftops, buildings, roads, and streets. Just outside of the city you will quickly run into picturesque sites such as breathtaking Broga Hill, which seems to have never been affected by modern development, remaining untouched.
A truly one of a kind location compared to the rest of Malaysia is Penang Island. Nestled on the Strait of Malacca, the city sits at an epicenter of global shipping and trade. Previously, Penang was shaped by British colonialism. Visitors can take a step back in time to observe a rich architectural tradition that has been granted UNESCO World Heritage status.
In George Town, Penang there are also a number of different city sections showcasing distinct global cultures. These include a Chinatown, a Little India, and countless mosques, ornate Buddhist and Hindu temples, and splendid historic churches.

If you should need film production services in Malaysia, the majority of crews and equipment are based out of Kuala Lumpur. All major brands and types of equipment are available there. This array of hi-tech gear includes recognizable industry staples such as Arri, Red, and GF&E, operated by some of the most proficient crews in the world.
Malaysian crews demonstrate exemplary speed and efficiency, and many possess decades of major big-budget production experience. This is an important reason why Netflix and recently even HBO as well as other studios have chosen Malaysia as a base in Southeast Asia for original content creation.
