Reasons why Malaysia is a good travelling destination

Assalamualaikum w.b.t. I've always tell my team that we will travel all around Malaysia first, before we start to travel overseas. Many has been asking why, despite the fact that most Malaysians were spending their week-long holidays in Korea, Japan and Europe. Long way from home, I figured, I prefer to, actually, enjoy the view in Malaysia, that is actually quite similar to the one belongs in overseas. Nevertheless, I will eventually travel overseas. As the idiom goes; 
EYES OPENED WIDE, HEART OPENED WIDER, MIND GOT WISER.

Oh, well. There are so many properties for sale in Malaysia, such as Tropicana the Residence. Some people buy property for own stay, and some buy it for investment purpose and make it into an Airbnb for travelers that visit Malaysia. To be honest, I do think Malaysia is one of the most underrated traveling destinations in the world. Well, this article will tell you the reasons why Malaysia is a good travelling destination worth a visit. 


Beautiful islands and stunning beaches

While Thailand and Indonesia are famous for their beautiful beaches, Malaysia has our own beautiful beaches as well. The eastern and western coastlines in Malaysia remain hidden. Those who enjoy sun tanning should check out The Perhentian beach and Borneo Islands where you can enjoy various water activities such as, snorkeling, kayaking, diving, and other water sports. 

The Perhentian beach is well known for their white sand. At night, you can also enjoy the lighting bonfires and crystal clear constellations. Langkawi is also well known for its beautiful beaches, duty free shopping and dining. It is an ultimate spot for a short beach vacation.

It is a much quieter beach as compared to The Perhentian or Langkawi, but it is definitely the right place for you to relax. Good for those who need a few days break from the busy city life. 

If diving is what you are looking for, do visit the Sipadan beach in Borneo, known as one of the best diving sites in the world. At Sipadan beach, you get to see things like sharks, turtles, barracudas, parrotfish and so much more.
