Malaysia is a tropical country, with temperatures between 23 °C (73.4 °F) and 32 °C (89.6 °F), and rainfall ranging from 10 centimetres (4 in) to 30 centimetres (12 in) a month. Indeed, Malaysia has two monsoon seasons: the Southwest Monsoon from late May to September, and the Northeast Monsoon from November to March. The Northeast Monsoon brings more rainfall in the East Coast of the Peninsula, as the Southwest Monsoon. Hence, March and October form transitions between the two monsoons.
Belum is located North, between East and West coast of the Peninsula. Nevertheless, it is not predominantly influenced by the Northeast monsoon, and tends to be drier between December and April.
