At Ipoh, spend time visiting the famous Canning Garden Chee Cheong Fun at Ipoh Central Café, Kellie’s Castle and Gua Temperung, and tuck into some soul-soothing Nasi lemak and Nasi vanggey.

Climb altitudes through this trip. At the first stop, Bukit Tinggi, visit the French-styled area Colmar Tropicale. Horse riding and archery are activities that await you at Fraser’s Hill.

Alor Setar – George Town – Batu Ferringhi

Penang is popular for their famous hawker food. Remember to sample some char kuey teow (notable ones are in Khoon Hiang Cafe, Lorong Selamat, Mei Le Hwa, and Kimberley Street), Penang cendol (famous ones are in Lebuh Keng Kwee, and Macalister Lane), and asam laksa from Air Itam Market Food Court.

Seremban – Malacca – Johor

Malacca is perhaps one of the most historically intact locations in Malaysia and this is why tourists flock to this history-rich place. You can also opt to put your swim suit on and head over to the A’ Famosa Water Theme Park.

Kuala Lumpur – Sekinchan – Kuala Selangor

Mention scenic paddy fields and Sekinchan would probably pop into Malaysians’ minds. Many have dropped by Sekinchan to host their bridal shoots and there is a good reason for that. Vast open spaces dotted with bright green paddy makes for a photoshoot one would definitely remember.
