Oryxpresents its insider’s tips for places to visit in March.
In March, discover Malaysia’s buzzing capital and idyllic islands, experience Madrid in full bloom, and make the most of Goa’s ideal beach weather.


Madrid in spring

There’s no bad time to visit Madrid, but March is a particularly lovely season to experience the Spanish capital. For art lovers, Madrid boasts three fantastic galleries: the Reina Sofia, the Prado, and Thyssen-Bornemisza. Don’t miss the Royal Botanical Garden in full bloom, featuring 30,000 species of plants and flowers.

Malaysia’s diverse attractions

One of Malaysia’s key attractions is its extreme contrasts; from the towering skyscrapers and shopping in Kuala Lumpur, to the golden beaches and ancient rainforests of the islands of Penang and Langkawi. In March, these west coast islands continue to enjoy hot, sunny days, making them the perfect destination for a beach holiday. While it’s wetter in Kuala Lumpur, any downpours are short-lived and bring a welcome relief to the year-round humidity. Head up the Petronas Towers and cross the Skybridge between them for breathtaking views.
