The Malaysia Traveller Blog

This website is different from many other travel websites because I will only write about places that I have personally visited and tried out myself.

That means I have to be constantly travelling around this beautiful country of Malaysia, scouring every corner for hidden travel gems.

It's a tough job but somebody has to do it!

Whatever I discover I will let you know by expanding this website. Stay informed by reading this blog for updates.
