There are many cities and places people like visiting in Malaysia. One of the blissful burdens to live or travel in this country is that Malaysia is fruitful for its tourist attractions and there are just a few choices we could explore with the feasibility of our pocket money.
Navigating the right attractions is effortless.

You just have to set your goals right, understand your preference, and a few research binges to sort out plans.
As it’s approaching 2022, there are definitely many travel destinations that deserve to be on everyone’s bucket list. We’ve finalized 5 of the breathtaking attractions in Malaysia for travel enthusiasts. If you’re still scratching your head over places to go, this article will be suitable for you.

Ranging from Carnivores, Herbivores, to Omnivores, Dinosaur Encounter Zoo houses numerous prehistoric replica dinosaurs of different species. It’s definitely worth a visit if you possess a deep interest in wildlife studies but need a new experience from the common modern zoo parks.

Imagine having a place with a balance of fun for adrenaline junkies and those who suffer from the fear of heights. Other than The Top Komtar in Penang, SkyDeck KL Tower should become another deserving destination on your list.
Accessible at the KL Tower Sky Box, the SkyDeck Ledge provides a breathtaking panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur 300m above the ground. It’s a good place to take stunning photos with its transparent surroundings overseeing the unobstructed city view from the top of the KL Tower.
If you choose to visit this place at different hours, you’ll be amazed by the diversity of city aesthetics as the direction of sunlight changes through time. Most visitors prefer to snap photos during sunset for a better view. So don’t miss it out of your schedule.

Langkawi is known for its archipelago islands with several hotels and resorts for travellers to stay over during their trips. What about the idea of spending a day at the number one eco-friendly resort island? Does that sound enticing to you? If so, you should check out Paradise 101.
Being a resort island, Paradise 101 isn’t just a destination for your staycation, but it serves as a travel attraction for adventurous wanderers to explore other activities such as banana boats, jet skis, snorkeling, aqua park tour, and many fun events.
If you’re looking for a place far away from the bustling city just to chill, Paradise 101 is a destination that you can’t afford to lose.
Sarawak Cultural Village

People have been putting a lot of attention on Peninsula Malaysia with its rich food culture and travel attractions, but little do we know that there are more in East Malaysia as well. One of the best places to visit in Kuching, Sarawak is Sarawak Cultural Village.
Sarawak Cultural Village is an award-winning Living Museum that spans across 17-acres of land just across from Damai Beach Resort and Hotels. This museum enables visitors to learn about the local culture and lifestyles of the various ethnic groups in Sarawak. It’s not just a location for hodophiles, but also an educational space to improve your historical knowledge.
There are several attractions and shows to explore when visiting Sarawak Cultural Village. Be sure to download their app before entering to enhance your tour experience there.
Kampung Agong, Penang

Last but not least, we’ve got a recommendation from Penang. It’s well-known that Penang is claimed as one of the best places in the world to visit and retire. Just within its island, there are plenty of options to explore, much less the mainland. Among the list of popular go-to places, we’d suggest a slightly new yet deserving destination to you.
Kampung Agong is a countryside Agro Theme Park, which is famous for its coconut grove beside the paddy fields. Visitors will expect themselves to be awestruck by the home-based kampung (village) concept and the available activities. For instance, cycling, camping, flying kites (seasonal), hammock, farming, fishing, and tram tours are some of the things that can be done there.
It’s a suitable haven for family and friends to visit together and return home with peace of mind after enjoying their all-in-one package.
