Not sure where to go? Take a look at some of the destinations you can fly to for your next staycation:

1. Satisfy your cravings in Penang, a food paradise

When you think of Penang, the first thing that pops up in your mind will definitely be the food! From char kuey teow and nasi kandar to pasembur and laksa, you'll be spoiled for choice and end up in a food coma from feasting on all the delicious food. 

Apart from that, you can wind down and have a relaxing day by the beach or go on an adventure walking through the streets in town, where you'll discover stunning mural paintings that tell the story of Penang's heritage and culture. 

2. Discover the richness of nature at the UNESCO Global Geopark in Langkawi

Did you know that in 2007, Langkawi was awarded with the status of being the first Global Geopark in Southeast Asia? Yess, this island is not only a duty-free haven, but is also rich with wonders like ancient rock formations and luscious rainforests. You can book a boat tour to visit these spots and take Instagrammable photos for your feed. 

Heading towards north of Telaga Harbour and Pantai Kok, you'll be able to hop on the Langkawi SkyCab Cable Car at Oriental Village, where you can overcome your fear of heights and soar above the breathtaking landscape view of Langkawi from the Sky Bridge. 

3. Take in the sight of Mount Kinabalu and breathe in fresh air at the Kinabalu National Park, Sabah

Known as a bustling city partially surrounded by rainforests, Kota Kinabalu is home to Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in Borneo and Malaysia that stands tall at a height of 4,095 metres. At Kinabalu National park, you can take in gorgeous sights of the mountain, or find over 4,500 different species of flora and fauna when you go jungle trekking or walk through the botanical garden. 

Not only that, when night comes, you can take a stroll to the Handicraft Market, where you will be in awe of the many stalls selling one-of-a-kind handmade crafts, souvenirs, jewellery, and clothing. After that, you can enjoy fresh and delicious seafood at reasonably-priced restaurants. 

4. Pay a visit to traditional longhouses and immerse yourself in Iban and Dayak culture in Sarawak

Don't forget to visit the most iconic part of Kuching while you're there, the Kuching Waterfront. You can take a stroll at night with your loved ones and gaze at the beautiful sight of The Astana and the majestic Fort Margherita.

You can also find various types of indigenous groups like the Ibans and Dayaks here, who have very different lifestyles and cultures compared to us. Even the language they speak is different! 

If you are curious to know more about them, take a 35-minute drive outside of Kuching to visit the Sarawak Cultural village, where you'll be able to learn more about the indigenous groups that are part of Sarawak, as well as peek at their local crafts and buildings. 

If you have not been to any of these places before, it's time to go for a well-deserved staycation! Head to Malaysia Airline's website today and book your flights before 16 August!
