  • Travel News Wrap: 12 October Week

    Malaysia's Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) Image Credit: Ishan @seefromthesky on Unsplash Arguably one of the biggest news this week has to be the implementation of the CMCO or Conditional Movement Control Order in Malaysia. After experiencing an upsurge of Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, Malaysia has decided to curb the new wave with the implementation of this CMCO. Similar to the past CMCO, this CMCO will limit the movement of the residents in the affected states. The CMCO is in effect for the federal territories of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Selangor state. It began earlier this week on Wednesday, 14 October, and is currently set to last till 27 October this year. Under the CMCO most industries can continue their operations under the condition that they practice the health precautions in place. Meanwhile, schools and places of worship have been closed along with the ban on sporting events in the country.  This decision might have been influenced by the interstate travel ban enforced in Sabah last week, which was also due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases there. Together, the CMCO is said to affect around 11 million or 30% of the country’s population. For more information on the CMCO and travel advisories, please check with the respective authorities.   Hong Kong and Singapore Travel Bubble Image Credit: Dan Freeman on Unsplash Announced on Thursday, 15 October, Hong Kong, and Singapore has decided to set up a travel bubble between the two cities. With the low incidence of COVID-19 cases in the two cities, the decision was made in order to re-establish overseas travel and lift complications such as quarantine or stay-home notices for visiting travelers. In this new travel bubble, there will be no travel purpose restrictions and controlled itinerary but, travelers will still need to test negative on the COVID-19 test and travel on dedicated flights for those traveling under this new bubble.  Currently, there are no set dates for the launch of this new travel bubble. The launch date and implementation details will be announced in due course, according to the ministry.   New Zealand and Australia Travel Bubble Started Today (Trans-Tasman) Image Credit: John Kappa ツ on Unsplash Some more welcoming news in the travel world. Today, 16 October, the Trans-Tasman travel bubble is in effect. This travel bubble between New Zealand and Australia, with the first passengers arriving in Sydney, Australia earlier today.  The travelers arriving in Australia from New Zealand are not required to quarantine themselves upon arrival. This is in line with Australia’s tentative reopening to international tourism. However, the arrangement is not reciprocal between the two countries. Travelers from Australia traveling to New Zealand will still be required to undergo the 14-day quarantine amongst other requirements. Travelers from the no-quarantine flights might still need to be quarantined depending on the Australian state or territory they are planning to enter. Please refer to the respective authorities for more details on the travel advisories and safety measures in place.   Reciprocal Green Lane between Singapore and Indonesia are in the works Image Credit:Swapnil Bapat on Unsplash The prospect of traveling between Singapore and Indonesia looks to be promising. Similar to the other reciprocal green lanes between Singapore and some other countries which are already in effect, Indonesia looks to be the next addition to that list. Indonesia and Singapore have agreed on implementing a reciprocal green lane which will allow for essential business and official travel between the two countries. Applications for travel under this reciprocal green lane will begin on 26 Oct. The application is only open for Singapore and Indonesian residents as well as permanent residents of the two countries. The requirements are similar to the other reciprocal green lane arrangements with the need for sponsors for travel, SafeTravel Pass / Visas, Pre-departure and Post-arrival COVID-19 tests. Points of entry and exits have also been designated. For air travel, Changi Airport and Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport has been designated. For Sea Travel, Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal and Batam Centre Ferry Terminal has been chosen as the points of entry and exit. This point of entry and exit is a measure to reduce the possibility of infectious patients slipping into the communities.

  • Public Transport Safety Tips for the COVID-19 Pandemic

    COVID-19 continues to be a significant impact on our lives, with the number of cases on the rise again recently. With many out there already traveling to their workplaces to pull through these tough times, public transport commuting is still the top mode of transport to commute to and from our destinations, whether it is work, school. In addition to that, due to the travel restrictions imposed, there might be more traveling by buses and trains now as people might also use public transport to travel to the various domestic recreation sites to cure their holiday blues, especially in dense cities like Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, and London.  To help you get that extra peace of mind, here are some tips for you to stay as safe as much as you can while traveling on Public Transport in this COVID-19 pandemic.   Alternative modes of transport Image Source: Photo by Angelo Pantazis on Unsplash Choosing a different mode of transport where you will be less likely to come into close proximity with others is a great way to start. This will not only benefit you, but it will also lessen the pressure and the number of people taking public transport. The lesser contact, the better. Walk or Cycle Think about walking or cycling to your destinations if you can or when they are closeby. Remember to keep a distance between you and others around you at all times. Car-Sharing If you want to get somewhere fast, Car rentals and Car-sharing are a viable option as they are now more accessible than ever. Always sanitize the car before and after you use it and make sure the cabin is well ventilated during your journey to minimize the risks. You could argue that taxis, Grab, uber, or gojek do the same but, by renting and driving the cars yourself, you are staying in your own safety bubble, sparing you and the cab drivers with more risks.    Travel Off-peak Image Source: Photo by JOSHUA COLEMAN on Unsplash Peak hours in Public Transportation means more people, which also means that you will come into contact with many people in packed trains and buses, making their way to and from work or school. Choose to travel during off-peak hours whenever you can, leave your house earlier in the morning, or make your way home later in the evening. A bonus to doing this is that if you do choose to travel during the off-peak hours, your journey will not only be that little bit safer, but it will also be a bit more peaceful as well.   Plan your Journey Image Source: Photo by Jeremy Downes on Unsplash Before actually setting out to your destinations, plan ahead, and choose your routes carefully. Take the most direct routes that lead to your destination to minimize the time you spend outside. Avoid going to and through places where you know are generally busy, you can alight a stop before your intended station if you know there are more people there. Another thing to consider when planning your journey is that you could walk for more parts of your trip.   Contactless Technology Image Source: Photo by Mika Baumeister on Unsplash Minimize your contact with everything when you are out and about. Go contactless with your purchases by using contactless payments such as ApplePay, GooglePay, or any contactless cards available. Where possible, use your mobile phones when topping-up or purchasing tickets by doing the transactions through the respective mobile apps.   Personal Protection Image Source: Photo by Anshu A on Unsplash It has to go without saying that you should always follow the standard safety measures such as wearing a mask at all times and maintaining a safe distance between you and the next person. Safe distancing might be a hard thing to do when traveling on a packed bus or train, but whenever possible, always try to distance yourself from the next person. Bring a hand sanitizer with you when using public transport. Clean your hands after alighting as you may have used the handrails or touched some other parts of the vehicle. Due to the nature of the virus spreading through droplets, try not to speak during the commute (even if you’re already wearing a mask). If you are traveling overseas, check out our past blog “Planning To Travel Soon? Here Are 10 Travel Safety Tips For You To Know” for travel specific tips.   Safety Checklist Image Source: Photo by Glenn Carstens-Peters on Unsplash In summary here is a checklist of what you should ask yourself whenever you plan to go out on Public Transport: When is the best time for me to make my way there? Can I walk or cycle there? Am I taking the most direct and fastest route? Are there a lot of people on my route? / Is it busy? Are there any alternative routes with lesser people? Can I take any other alternative modes of transportation?  COVID-19 is a complex virus that we are all still trying to understand. These traveling tips are just precautionary measures to help you minimize the risks as much as you can whenever you are traveling around domestically. Of course, staying at home as much as possible is still the best, we understand that sometimes we really have to get out of the house to attend to something. Stay Safe!...

  • 9 Honeymoon Destinations You Have Yet To Discover In Malaysia

    You must have heard that Malaysia is slowly easing its traveling restriction. Even though international travel has yet to be permitted, domestic traveling is possible. Thus, we can take this opportunity to discover the hidden gems in Malaysia. Who says that you need to go far for a honeymoon gateway? And if you think that Malaysia is not an ideal location for a honeymoon destination, you might want to reconsider that! via GIPHY Check out these 9 romantic honeymoon destinations in Malaysia! 1. Rawa Island Image Credit: Rawa Island Resort Skip the more popular islands like Tioman Island and Perhentian Island and head straight to Rawa Island to discover the pristine beauty of this island. This small island is located in the vicinity of Johor Bahru, despite its small size, there are plenty of activities to do here!In Pulau Rawa, you can book one out of the two resorts that are available here; Alang's Rawa Resort and Rawa Island Resort. Both would give you some of the best views of the vast sea and amazing packages for various water activities. If you're bringing kids, let them have fun at the water slides! Apart from water activities that you can do in Pulau Rawa, you can hike The Hilltop Walk, which only takes around 40 minutes. It's worth the effort and time once you reach the top because the panoramic view of Rawa Island is something you and your spouse shouldn't miss. 2. The Banjaran Hotsprings, Ipoh Image Credit:The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat, Ipoh on Facebook Ipoh is a city full of cultural trails and historical monuments. You and your spouse may choose to explore Ipoh because of its heritage, but what I want to highlight here is The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat. The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat will give you a one in a lifetime experience and a perfect choice for your luxurious honeymoon getaway. The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat is Malaysia's first natural Hotsprings wellness. You can relax and enjoy nature here while being surrounded by limestone hills, rainforest, natural caves, and waterfalls. Explore the caves, visit the library, or take a dip in the geothermal hot spring. With the resort having about 45 villas available and no kids below 12 are allowed to stay, The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat will guarantee you an intimate time with your spouse. Do take note that alcohol is served throughout the resort. 3. Mabul Island Image Credit: Tourmab Mabul Island is located in Sabah and is a popular destination for divers. But this doesn't mean Mabul Island is not for you! The aqua ocean and beautiful reefs will reel you in. If you and your spouse enjoy snorkeling and kayaking, then you should check out this island. Isn't it nice to be kayaking on a Molokini, a transparent kayak, and witness the underwater marine life? Definitely, a good alternative if you can't dive or snorkel. Once you have experienced the water activities, go ahead and watch the sunset with your spouse. Mabul Island offers you a great view of both sunrise and sunset. Another activity that you should do here is stargazing. With low light pollution, you can witness the Milky Way galaxy at night. What a way to end the day with your loved ones! 4. Bentong Image Credit: Ryan Chu on Unsplash If you are considering Genting Highlands as your honeymoon destination, you might want to check out Bentong instead. Located on the western side of Pahang, you can escape the hectic city life and enjoy what nature has to offer you here. Of course, the things that you should be looking forward to will be exploring nature. Known for its mountainous terrains, you may see yourself surrounded in greeneries. Enjoy the fresh air with your spouse at the Japanese Garden or picnic by Lentang Recreational Forest. When planning for a place to stay at, you should check out these Muslim-friendly resorts in Janda Baik; Chengal Hill Retreat and Fifty4Ferns. They only served Halal food and no alcohol allowed on their premises. 5. Serendah Another foresty destination you may want to consider is Serendah. This destination is best if you and your spouse are an outdoor person. Discover the beauty of Waterfall Forest Park Kanching. Be ready to hike through the 7 levels of Kanching Waterfall as the difficulty varies at each level. If you want to skip the hiking and head for adrenaline activities, there's dirt biking that you can try at Moto Maniac. Also, it is worth checking out Sekeping Serendah Retreats. Providing an eco-tourism accommodation, you can spend quality time with your significant others away from the bustling city life. Think about the greeneries and the meal shared under the stars, it will definitely leave great memories for both of you! 6. Kuching Image Credit: Farizal Resat on Unsplash Experience the beauty of what Kuching has to offer by renting a Sampan down the Sarawak River. Kuching is not only about the stunning waterfront, but also a city full of cultural and historical aspects. Go on a museum hop with your significant others like the Sarawak Museum. Discover places to shop at and dine in at the Waterfront after taking a relaxing walk. Also, don't forget to view the Kuching Mosque and marvel at its incredible architecture. As Kuching means "cat" in Malay, you should not miss out on the Cat Museum. To add up a little bit of adventure to your honeymoon getaway, how about hunting down the cat statues around the city? But let me break it to you that the city's name might not be derived from the Malay word. Then again, it is worth discovering all these cat elements around the city. 7. Malacca Image Credit: Tammy on Unsplash Being one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Malacca has so many to offer to everyone. Considering Malacca as your honeymoon destination won't be a disappointment. Explore the historical landmark with your spouse and discover various museums that you can visit. After a long day walking around the town, hopping from one museum to another, it's time to hunt down for food. And isn't it fun to hunt down food with your loved ones? Malacca has arrays of food stalls ranging from local, Westerns, Chinese to fusions. Beat the heat by getting your sweet tooth fix at Klebang Original Coconut Shake or Cendol Kampung Hulu. No matter how long you are planning to stay in Malacca, the choices of Halal or Muslim-friendly food are endless! 8. Lake Kenyir Image Credit: MOHD HAFIZ YAHYA on Unsplash Believe it or not, Lake Kenyir is a man-made lake, said to be the largest in Malaysia. Located in Hulu Terengganu, this destination is set for couples who love outdoor, and definitely those who are not scared of water. Fishing is one of the popular activities here as river fish has adapted to its ecology. You can also go for jungle trekking and caving and experience the nature around. Lake Kenyir offers a once in a lifetime experience to spend a night on a houseboat. There are some other resorts and chalets that you can choose from, but why not go for something different and create special experiences with your significant other. 9. Kuala Lumpur Image Credit: Izuddin Helmi Adnan on Unsplash Lastly, in this list, let's not forget about the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. This metropolis city has so much to offer. There are endless options to shop, various food stalls to eat at, and so many things to discover. Of course, one of the touristy things to do is to witness the Petronas Twin Tower. If you are craving some local street food and want to experience the feel of a night market, there is Tapak Street for you to check out. You can also take a walk at the KL Forest Eco Park, suitable for anyone as it is not as rugged as any hiking trails. Kuala Lumpur might be deemed as an overrated city to visit, but if you look at every nook of what this city has to offer, it is worthwhile. After all, you are visiting with the love of your life, so there is nothing that can beat that! Do you believe it now that Malaysia owns some of the best honeymoon destinations? These 9 destinations might not seem romantic at first glance, but now that you know they are, isn't it time to start planning? And once it is safe to travel, set off with your significant others for an incredible journey together. via GIPHY...

My best pick will be the Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark, which can be enjoyed by people of all ages - adults and kids alike.    2. Port Dickson to Malacca Image Credit: Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson This trip is another ideal short getaway that you can consider. Stay for a night in Port Dickson and the following day, you can drive down to Malacca in less than 1.5 hours. Port Dickson is the best place to relax and rewind.

After spending some time sightseeing and shopping at Kuala Lumpur, continue your journey down the road for about 4 hours to reach a UNESCO heritage town, George Town in Penang. Image Credit: Dark Mansion More fun-filled activities await you in Penang. Visit Dark Mansion, a 3D trick art museum unlike the normal, because they glow in the dark! Your kids will definitely enjoy this, we promise!  Image Credit: Penang Hill on Facebook One of my best take in Penang will be Penang Hill. Ride up the funicular ride to enjoy breathtaking views, learn heritage and culture, and enjoy mother nature. Make sure to feast on their local delights like Char Kuay Teow and Assam Laksa. Penang houses some affordable cafes too so be sure to check that out with your family! 4.

Over at Johor Bahru, you can visit Legoland, a popular theme park that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Spend a day with your family here; enjoy the rides and attractions it has to offer.  Image Credit: Kishor on Unsplash After having some fun at Legoland, you can drive to Mersing. Mersing is all about the beautiful beaches and white sands. You can opt for snorkeling and island hopping in Mersing if your family is up for it. My best take in Mersing is to book a resort and enjoy a relaxing time at the beaches with your loved ones.  6. Sepang to Genting Highlands Image Credit: Sepang International Circuit  If you think that Sepang is only home to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, you are wrong. There are some fun-filled activities that you can do with your family here. In less than a 2 hours drive, you can get to Genting Highlands and the fun continues. Sepang is known for its Formula One race circuit, but if you're not in Sepang to watch one, head down to Avani Gold Coast Resort.

Kuantan to Kuala Terengganu Image Credit: The Sungai Pandan Waterfall on Hotel Grand Continental Kuantan For me, Kuantan is an underrated city. Not many tourists visit this beautiful destination. In less than a 3-hour drive from Kuantan, you can reach your destination, Kuala Terengganu. In Kuantan, you can find several beautiful waterfalls. In my opinion, Sungai Pandan Waterfall will be an ideal spot if you are on this road trip with young kids or the elderly. Make a trip to Kula Cakes to eat the local's favorite Mango Cheesecakes. This store should be in every cheesecake lovers' list as they serve other unique flavors as well.

Visit the Terengganu State Museum to learn about the history and culture of this place. Don't forget to also visit Pantai Batu Burok to enjoy the scenic beach view. 8.

Explore the French-themed Colmar Tropicale and the zen-inspired Japanese garden. The rabbit farm is a must-visit for families; you can play and feed the cute little furry friends.
