Issue 8.5 – Discover Malaysia Thru Fly-and-Drive

The past few months have been hectic for us, as we had been heavily involved in large scale programmes such as the Kembara Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia to Central Sarawak, Kembara Kraf Selangor 2013, Malaysia Tourism Hunt (MTH) 2013, all of which are covered within the pages of this issue. Speaking of MTH, which is Tourism Malaysia’s laudable effort, it encourages international tourists to drive around Malaysia on their own and take advantage of the country’s good road systems to know more about the destinations and people. We therefore invite all travellers coming into Malaysia to consider renting a decent car (equipped with navigation system of course) and begin exploring the country independently and flexibly, allowing them to uncover more interesting facets of Malaysia along the way.
