As life starts to get back to normal during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO), Malaysians are now allowed to travel domestically and within states as well. The RMCO will take effect from the 10th of June 2020 until the 31st of August 2020.
Although the Malaysian government has allowed domestic tourism to resume, industry players are expecting a slow pace of recovery as people remain cautious of travelling due to Covid-19. Many are wary of avoiding crowded public areas and would prefer to go to isolated areas where there are less people if they were to travel.
Hence, we’ve come up with a list of hidden resorts far away from the crowds where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of nature.
