5 Unexplored Places In Malaysia That You May Not Know Ever Existed!

You don’t need to get far to be away!

Sometimes when we think of travel, we always correlate it with distance. The more distant we go, the better the travel experience will be, but what if we tell you that you don’t even to step out of Malaysia to have a holiday of your lifetime.

In fact, these places that we are about to list out aren’t the cliche places that are already crowded with people from all over the country. After some research done, we’ve found out that Malaysia actually has a lot of hidden gems that are underappreciated by local people ourselves.

Hence, these are the five places that we think you should definitely note down in your 2020 checklist!

Templer Park Rainforest Retreat

Surrounding yourself with a 360° view of a concrete jungle wrapped inside a hilltop paradise is the perfect escape to the hullabaloos of the city. Surprisingly located only a 30-minute drive away from the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the serene and tranquil Kanching Rainforest Reserve makes the perfect place to relax, unwind, and de-stress.

 

Astaka Morocco

Hiding in between the beautiful gardens of Putrajaya Botanical Gardens is this Moroccan palace of wonders. Built to symbolize the diplomatic ties between Malaysia and Morocco, the exquisite pavilion is divided into three grand courtyards—each with its own ornate gate showcasing truly intricate craftsmanship and impressive architecture.

 

Gem Island

Pristine white beach, crystal clear water, stunning coral reefs, abundance of marine life; this tiny island is Terengganu is definitely breathtaking! And just like its name, it’s an absolute hidden gem! As it’s privately owned, the island is less crowded, which means more fantastic pictures for the Instagram.

 

Maxwell Hill

This oldest hill resort in Malaysia—founded back in 1884—is only about 10km away from Taiping. It has remained largely untouched and not as developed as other highlands. Those who seek zens around nature, this is the perfect spot to unwind. It has various trails to be explored and if you’re lucky, you might be able to appreciate plenty of local wildlife.

 

Cheong Fatt Tze’s Blue Mansion

With 38 opulent rooms and stunning features—its hundreds of windows, seven staircases, five courtyards, porches lined with lace-like cast iron detailing, and gables inlaid with bright porcelain mosaics—it’s no wonder that the Blue Mansion was even used as a filming location for ‘Crazy Rich Asians’.

 

After gone through our list, you must be eager to pack up your bags and get to adventure right?

Well, not so fast because Firefly Airlines and Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) are collaborating to curate a travel Fly and Rail Holiday Package combo fitting for everyone!

2019年十二生肖流年运程:鸡

鸡(1945 / 1957 / 1969 / 1981 / 1993) 肖鸡的朋友今年流年虽然没有与“太岁” 刑冲破害,但是今年的流年运程并无多大改善,主要是因为命宫中依然有众多凶星汇集,而又毫无吉星化解之故,因此今年凡事都必须步步为营。 【事业运】 今年应该把时间放在工作上,多劳多得,不要作太多的变化和更动,也就是说如果有新的职业等待您,也应该慎重考虑,不要这么仓促作出决定。肖鸡朋友今年在工作上颇多挫折,而且会遇到许多小人阻扰,必须忍辱负重,冷静地在逆境中求变,以免一败涂地。但是在人际关系方面则要多加注意「多做事,少说话」以免因为工作是非而影响升职加薪!今年凡事都必须奉公守法,循规蹈矩,否则便难免会有牢狱之灾! 【财运】 财运方面,今年可说是乏善可陈,正财及横财均不宜憧憬,以免因贪变贫。此外,今年也不宜向人借贷,否则便会泥足深陷。 【感情运】 今年感情方面虽然没有什么桃花出现,不过感情进展却时好时坏,必须好好控制情绪,以免误己误人。 【健康运】 今年健康未如理想,故此必须多休息保养,以免积劳成疾。今年也比较容易有血光之灾,出入要小心,同时也必须多注意家中长辈的健康! ✿✿✿✿✿✿✿✿✿✿ 【幸运号码】 0926 、 1529 【开运颜色】 白色、银色、金色 【开运贴士】 不妨多出国旅游,春夏出生的您可以考虑出生地以北的国家,而秋冬出生的您则不妨到出生地以南的国家旅游!   ■ 资料提供:风水达人何宜娟《猪年报喜2019己亥年开运大全》 ■ 您也可透过八度空间于2019年2月5日(年初一)中午12时观看电视版《丰衣足食己亥年》
