Best Theme Park In Malaysia
It’s safe to say that nine out of 10 Malaysians have been to Sunway Lagoon at least once in their lives. Whether it’s for a family trip or team-building event, this 356 thousand square metre water and amusement park at Bandar Sunway is home to more than 90 attractions and the first Nickelodeon-themed land in Asia!
Best Island Resort In Malaysia
PANGKOR LAUT RESORT
Craving for an island holiday but unwilling to travel far? Well, the five-star Pangkor Laut Resort by YTL Hotels can be your next best option. This secluded oasis provides beach villas that are steps away from the resort’s white-sand beach, and garden villas that are set amongst lush tropical gardens – a true local paradise!
Best Malaysian Holiday Destination
Clear waters, exquisite beaches, golden sunsets and duty-free shopping, there’s so much this tropical island has to offer despite constantly being overlooked because of its close distance. The next time you’re visiting, be sure to participate in these activities: jungle trekking, bird watching, eagle safari, waterfall and GeoForest tours.
Best Weekend Getaway
Just a four-hour drive (or less than an hour by plane) away, this lion city makes for the perfect short getaway cos 1. They have more Insta-worthy corners for #OOTD shots, 2. There’s always an interesting exhibit to visit and 3. The amount of restaurants and cafés they have (that we don’t) is practically endless!
Best ASEAN Holiday Destination
Real talk: we all know that Bali is gorgeous, but what puts it at the top of our list is how its currency stretches further compared to ours. Plus, it’s close enough for us to make a trip whenever we want to! That said, it’s definitely a fabulous place with great food, friendly people and lots of things to do.
