Hi all,
I was told recently that, now (Sep onwards), It is better to go to West coast of Malaysia (say Batu Pahat) for Milky Way than East Coast of Malaysia (like Mersing). Is it true? What is the reason behind it?

All planets spin and revolve around the sun.Planet earth takes 365 days to complete one revolution around the sun which is one year . If you are in malaysia this time chart is helpful:

Or you can download an app to map out how the milkyway looks like at certain location and timing. Then it becomes clearer.
