The new year has come and it’s time to make plans for some trips. Why so early? Because you wouldn’t want to end up crashing with your colleague’s schedule and not getting your leaves on approved dates.
If you’re still wondering where to visit, here’s a list of well-known tourist spots that you can fly with Malaysia Airlines (MAS) at rates as low as RM88 thanks to their “Spring into New Year” campaign! Huat ah!
Let us start with places that require a higher budget:
1. Hong Kong
Can’t wait to bite on a scrumptious Polo bun and take a sip of Hong-Kong style milk tea in a Char Chaan Teng? An all-in round trip to Hong Kong costs from only RM1,388 (all-in return) with the campaign!
There are plenty of other delicacies tourists should never miss out on. For instance, dim sum, Wan Tan noodles with prawn dumplings, roasted goose, egg tarts, and beef brisket noodles are just some of them.
Families with children can pay a visit to Disneyland, the renowned Ocean Park and the National Science Museum. On the other hand, young adults can enjoy chill vibes at Lan Kwai Fong or near Victoria Harbour and Avenue of Stars.
Taipei is another famous destination, especially among Asians due to its balanced mixture of modern skyscrapers and old heritage buildings. If you ever get bored of Taipei IOI, you can always take a trip to Ping Xi, Jiu Fen and Shifen for an outskirt experience of putting up sky lanterns and drinking a cup of tea in a traditional shop.
The mouth-drooling local street food at night markets is another reason Taipei is always on travellers’ bucket lists. After all, who can resist the appeal of Oh Chien (fried oysters omelette), Taiwanese fried chicken bites or cutlets, beef noodles, braised pork rice, oyster vermicelli noodles, stinky tofu, bubble milk tea, shaved ice, pineapple cake, scallion pancake, Three-cup chicken, soup dumplings and so much more?
Other fun and famous attractions in other major cities like Alishan and Sun Moon Lake are just within driving distance from Taipei, making it a suitable and convenient flight destination.
The lowest rate for an all-in return trip to Taipei is approximately RM1,288. The good news for those from East Malaysia is that you can fly directly from Kota Kinabalu at the same rate!
Known as the Lands of Gods, Bali is a must-go for nature lovers. Aside from nice beaches at Bali and neighbouring islands such as Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan in the southeast, this location is also known for its soaring volcanoes and lavish terraced paddy fields that manifest peace and tranquillity.
Some Balinese food made from Indonesian spices and herbs that tourists must try include delicacies like Nasi Campur (Mixed rice), Rare pork dish – Babi guling (suckling pig), Sate Lembat, Bebek Betutu (slow-cooked duck), Lawar, Jimbaran style grilled fish, etc.
