It’s almost the holiday season! Aside from the famous and popular tourist attractions, Malaysia has many hidden places where you can enjoy some peaceful and unique adventures!
Here are a few hidden gems in Malaysia that you should explore this holiday:
1. Tasik Biru Ibam Muadzam Shah, Pahang
Rompin is a district in Pahang that is filled with natural treasures and is positioned by the sea and encircled by thick jungles. The Tasik Biru in Rompin, also known as the Blue Lake, is thought to have developed its enigmatic colour as a result of chemical interactions between the rocks and soil. Make your way there to see its vibrant waters for yourself!
2. Rainbow Waterfall, Pahang
One of Malaysia’s most stunning yet undeveloped waterfalls is found in Sungai Lembing. It makes sense why Rainbow Waterfall was given that name. A stunning rainbow is formed in the early morning when the sun shines through the vegetation and light mist of the 300-metre flowing waterfall.
3. Tasik Kenyir, Terengganu
One of Southeast Asia’s largest artificial lakes is Tasik Kenyir. Here, you can stay aboard a boat and occupy your days with a variety of activities like hiking through the forest, caving, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and rafting.
4. Pulau Gemia, Terengganu
This idyllic private island, also known as Gem Island or Pulau Gemia in Malay, is a beach lover’s dream come true. It is a favorite honeymoon resort due to its tranquil wind beaches, waterfront homes, and laid-back atmosphere, making it the ideal place for you to decompress and unwind with your loved ones. Thus, a list of hidden gems in Malaysia will not be complete without having Pulau Gemia on it.
5. Kundasang, Sabah
The highest town in Malaysia is Kundasang, which is situated at a height of 6,200 feet. Kundasang, also referred to as “the New Zealand of Borneo,” is situated at the base of spectacular Mount Kinabalu, the highest summit in Malaysia. With its spectacular views, fresh mountain air, clear blue skies, and temperate climate, this picturesque village is unquestionably one of Malaysia’s most beautiful undiscovered secrets.
