Mueang Phuket District (outside The Memory at On On Hotel)

Thailand’s biggest and most famous island has over 40 outstanding beaches, though history/architecture aficionados would also revel in the abundance of ancient temples, museums and Sino-Portuguese architecture.

  • Banana Beach: One of Phuket’s best kept secrets is a pristine, sandy 180-meter coastline that requires extra effort to access (but the peace and quiet is worth it!).
  • Wassa Homemade Bar: This quaint little bar is the perfect place for relaxing with a couple of cold ones and panoramic sunset views of Patong town.
  • The Memory at On On Hotel: Phuket’s very first hotel is a blast to the past, with rustic Sino-Portuguese architecture, serene courtyards, and Greek and Roman decorations.


2. Medan: A feast for the eyes, heart and taste buds

The third largest city in Indonesia is a prime destination for local culinary delights and rich heritage. If you’re willing to travel beyond the city, you’ll be rewarded with countless nature getaways like Lake Toba where you can escape the urban life for as long as you like.

  • Tinggi Raja: Venture into the ‘snow-covered’ cyan-blue hot springs of Tinggi Raja, made possible by calcium carbonate deposits that bring its iconic snow-like formation to life.
  • Wampu River: Go whitewater rafting as you wade through roaring rapids, and admire wildlife and the Sumatran greenery before unwinding with a much-needed hot springs retreat.
  • Toba Caldera Geopark: Soak in the local art and music scene with an assortment of traditional and contemporary cultural events, art galleries, and enthralling live music performances.


3. Bangkok: The melting pot of Thailand

This dynamic metropolis is filled with cultural landmarks like the Wat Arun and Grand Palace, in contrast with modern skyscrapers, bustling street markets and food havens that’ll excite every sense in your body.

  • Tichuca Rooftop Bar: Sip on delicious handcrafted beverages atop this elegant rooftop bar in the heart of Bangkok – perfect for city skyline views!
  • Bang Krachao: Explore lush mangrove forests, cycle along winding paths, and immerse yourselves in local communes at Bangkok’s Green Lung, just across the Chao Phraya River.
  • ChangChui Creative Park: It’s impossible to miss this unique artistic enclave, with its ingenious upcycled architecture, eclectic art installations, and vibrant cultural events that’ll excite Malaysians.

4. Kota Kinabalu: More than just Mount Kinabalu

The whimsical city of KK may primarily be known as the ‘entrance’ to the tallest mountain in the region, Mount Kinabalu, but it’s also home to a wide array of natural and urbans attractions and tantalising cuisines that are well worth the travel.

  • Layang-Layang Island: One can only travel here by flight, which is why you’ll get absolute peace and quiet as you explore colourful reefs while snorkelling, savour fresh seafood or relax under the sun.
  • Signal Hill Observatory Platform: This hidden gem right smack in the middle of KK gifts you scenic panoramic views of the city, islands, and stunning sunsets that’ll look great on the Gram.
  • Humble Hobbit Home: Though a bit farther from the city in Kundasang, this homestay is a paradise for Lord of the Rings fans, especially when you get a majestic view of Mount Kinabalu itself while sinking into your quaint abode.


5. Sandakan: Gateway to Borneo’s natural wonders

Formerly known as Elopura, one of the coastal cities of Sabah is renowned for its rich flora and fauna and historical significance as a former colonial capital, making it the ideal holiday spot for Malaysians looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of adulthood.

  • Kedai Kopi Tokyo: Sample some of the best coto (a unique local stew), curry mee and Portuguese egg tarts in town at this humble kopitiam.
  • Bukit Sim Sim (a.k.a. Elopura Recreation Park): Ascend a moderately steep staircase surrounded by picturesque wild orchids to get a one-of-a-kind view of Sandakan and beyond.
  • Puu Jih Shih Temple: Stare in awe at the majestic red, gold and blue interior of this temple, as you take in ringing bells, chants and various statues of Buddha while the sun sets behind you.


6. Miri: Of fresh air and vibrant city life
