Whenever we think of short road trips, it’s often either Penang, Ipoh or Malacca for the food.

 

Unbeknownst to many of us though, there are other beautiful locations in our country waiting to be discovered. In fact, some of them will have you going, “How is this place not all over my Instagram feed yet?!”

 

Here are 12 of these ‘otherworldly’ places that you wouldn’t believe exist in Malaysia:

 

#1 Tasik Cermin (Ipoh)

 

This lake looks like something out of an international travel photobook, but it’s just located in Ipoh. It’s called Mirror Lake and you’ll understand why when you see the photos!

#2 Trong Leisure Farm (Ipoh)

 

Not far from Ipoh is a traditional-turned-leisure farm! It was initially a plain ol’ duck farm, until the owner decided to give it a makeover. The farm has over 60,000 little ducklings and you can even feed them! CUTE!

This waterfall looks like something out of a fairytale, and the reason behind it is the rainbow that forms at the location. It’s magical. You can even catch the sunrise at the top of the hill!

#9 DESA Dairy Farm (Sabah)

 

You’d think this is something straight out of a dairy milk box illustration, but it’s actually located in Malaysia! The temperature is chilly but the view is definitely worth the cold!

#11 Tusan Beach (Sarawak)

 

Ever heard of the blue beach? We have one in Malaysia too! Tusan Beach is located in Sarawak and glows in luminous blue at night! The natural phenomenon is known as Blue Tears. It’s just as beautiful in the day time minus the blue glow.

So, why look for beautiful vacay spots outside of Malaysia when we have it all right in our backyard?
