KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia, a country steeped in rich cultural diversity is close to welcoming 2019 with a big and prosperous bang this Chinese New Year (CNY). During this time, all locals and visitors will have the perfect opportunity to travel and explore new (and historical!) sights of the culturally-blessed nation.
With CNY falling right smack in the middle of the week this year, it is no secret that many are reveling in the opportunity to take the entire week off to bask in the vibrant “hu-atmosphere” whether it may be in the city, the outskirts, or a casual staycation.
Have yet to sort your CNY vacay? Fret not, here are some quick destinations and attractions you could consider for the year of the Boar!
During this time of celebration, the city sleeps as many flock to their hometowns across the country, making it a great time to visit attractions that once would be too crowded for a visit.
THE PEARL OF THE ORIENT: PENANG
Boasting marvelous colonial architecture, amazing local delicacies, and so much more – Penang is one of Malaysia’s highly traveled destinations.
SOUTHERN EMPIRES: MALACCA & JOHOR BAHRU
