As we reach the end of the year, its mandatory to hit pause on work and take some time to plan a short getaway before December — our minds deserve a break! Or if you're someone who likes to get an early start on things, now's a great time to plan your travels for next year.

Be it admiring the beauty of Mother Nature at destinations like Malaysia's first world heritage site, Kinabalu Park in Sabah, or feeling the thrill of bustling city destinations like Bangkok in Thailand, everyone has their own preferences for an ideal vacation.

Luckily for you, Malaysia Airlines is here to help you achieve your travel goals and reap good deals with their very own 'MATTA' sales on their website!

In case you didn't know, the yearly MATTA Fair is an on-ground event held to allow consumers to directly book hotels, airlines, attractions, theme parks, and travel packages for both international and domestic destinations, from various tourism suppliers and travel agents. 

But, if you're unable to attend the physical fair, Malaysia Airlines is running their very own MATTA fair sales on their website for 12 days, where you can get up to 45% off both Economy and Business class flights.

Sale period:
Now until 11 September 2022
Travel period: Now until 12 April 2023

Can't decide where to go? Fret not! We've highlighted a few destinations worth visiting:

1. Sandakan, Sabah

Known as the second city of Sabah after Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan is a perfect place to take in the sight of gorgeous rainforest walkways and to check out Sabah's amazing wildlife. Nature lovers can explore Sandakan Rainforest Discovery Centre, where there are over 250 different species of birds and you may even get the chance to spot orang utans swinging on the trees. 

Want to meet the cute Borneo Sun Bear? Head over to the Borneo Sun Bear Conservation Centre to catch these beautiful endangered species clinging onto tree branches. If you're an animal lover, you wouldn't want to miss out on meeting these small bears. 

2. Mumbai, India

If you're a fan of Bollywood movies and love dancing along to the songs, then Mumbai should definitely be on your bucket list of travels. Get upclose and personal with a guided tour of Mumbai Film City, where you'll get a chance to visit post-production sets of over 100 films.  As you stroll around, you may even stumble across studio sets where your favourite Bollywood actor or actress shot some of their most iconic scenes! 

Do not leave Mumbai without trying their vada pav, a snack with a deep fried potato dumpling sandwiched in between two buns, smothered with Indian chutneys and spices. And if you want to bring home some souvenirs, clothing, or freshly ground spices, catch a rickshaw to one of the markets like Chor Bazaar to shop for one-of-a-kind items. 

3. Bangkok, Thailand

A trip to Thailand isn't complete without indulging in Thai street food! From exotic finds like deep-fried grasshoppers and silkworms to delicious spicy dishes like Pad Thai and Som Tam, you'll be spoilt for choice at the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. 

As the architecture around Thailand is mainly influenced by Buddhist culture, you'll find that there are many gorgeous temples to visit, such as Wat Pho. This temple is special as it is home to the Reclining Buddha, which is 15 metres tall and 46 metres long. Wow! :O While you're there, you can also stop to get a traditional Thai massage.

4. Sydney, Australia

Want to get the best of both worlds? Admire the beautiful city skyline and chill out by the beach in Sydney, Australia! Sydney is the place to be!

Your trip will be incomplete without visiting the iconic architecture masterpiece, Sydney Opera House. Want to uncover the history, cool stories, and magic underneath the world-famous sails? Take a tour of the Opera House and peek into various concert halls, magnificent stages, and backstage dressings rooms, where all the chaos happens before a show.  

Don't miss out on swimming at one of the most Instagrammable pools in Sydney, Bondi Icebergs Pool. This 50-metre saltwater pool is a popular spot as it's located along the shore of Bondi Beach. Here, you can chill or people-watch, as locals and tourists alike come to unwind away from the busy city.
