With so many beautiful landscapes and exciting attractions on our doorstep, it’s time to embrace having a staycation in our country! Malaysia has so much to offer and we are excited to share with you the places you can go to. Before that, here are 5 reasons why you should go on a staycation in your own country:
1. It supports the local economy.

Visiting another part of your own country means you will contribute to the local economy by supporting the small business of that region! Many local businesses especially have been affected during MCO - the local coffee shop uncles or aunties who serve delicious local cuisine to their patrons. While it might not seem like much, visiting the stores of small businesses will not only help keep them afloat, but preserve them so that everyone might continue to enjoy them for the foreseeable future!
2. You’ll Be Able To Avoid The Stress of Flying!

There’s a lot to think about when you’re taking a trip: figuring out flights, finding the best place to stay, deciding how to budget your limited amount of time. Not to mention you’d have to figure out what items to pack if you’ll be flying into a country with a different climate! A staycation would definitely minimise the stress involved as you won’t be travelling too far from home.
3. Home is not too far away.
Staycations allow you the added comfort of rushing back home in case of an emergency. At the moment, international air travel is not the most feasible option as most international borders currently remain closed. Going on a road trip in your own vehicle also provides you with the comfort of being able to plan out your stops - which makes your trip easily accessible to places you need to go. This way you’ll have ample time to stop for the bathroom or food breaks while on the road!
4. Get to know your hometown better on a staycation.
So many of us grew up or live in fascinating towns or cities, but somehow never manage to see a lot of it! A staycation gives you the opportunity to really explore your town - if that’s something you’d like to do. You can visit places you haven’t seen before, walk down alleyways you’ve always only passed by or actually just go to your favourite places and relax.
5. Stricter hygiene standards are in place.

Hotels and resorts in Malaysia are adopting the highest hygiene standards to ensure their guests feel an utmost sense of safety. With keyless check-in and checkout, thermal scanners, minimised interactions with the front desk, and the latest disinfection sprays for hotels to adapt with the new set of protocols. With these implemented, guests will be able to be at ease knowing hotels and resorts are doing their best!
